This was the scariest part of Trumps State of the Union
He talked about North Korea the way George W. Bush talked about Iraq.

President Donald Trumps first State of the Union speech concluded with a powerful story about a North Korean defector who was tortured and starved by that countrys brutal government.
The president described Ji Seong Hos suffering in excruciating detail, painting the North Korean government as an enemy of humanity and of Christianity.
He woke up as a train ran over his limbs. He then endured multiple amputations without anything to dull the pain, Trump said. His tormentors wanted to know if hed met any Christians. He had and he resolved, after that, to be free.
Trumps recounting of Jis suffering served a very specific political purpose to illustrate the core point of the speechs discussion of North Korea: A country that mistreats its people so cruelly cannot be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.
North Koreas reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland, Trump said. We need only look at the depraved character of the North Korean regime to understand the nature of the nuclear threat it could pose to America and to our allies.

Liberals arev scared orTrump standing up to a dictator.
And CNN is still complainingn he didn’t mention non-existent Russian collusion in his SOTU address.
Wow. These people don’t have a clue and the President is running circles around them.
Apart from renewing my concern for the health and safety of the human beings in North Korea at the hands of the North Korean government, the presidents comments did not scare me at all. Maybe I heard a different speech.
My wife was talking about this at breakfast this morning.
They’ve been talking about Russia since November 2016.
Ironic, since the “Alphabet Squad” falsely declared that there were WMD’s in Iraq.
They handed Democrats a talking point t that Bush couldn’t shake, much like this whole Russia falsehood.
I was never scared.
Are you scared, Zack? I know, it’s the peer pressure to be or to appear to be scared isn’t it?...and you are still weak enough as a person to be affected by it.
Heck, "Russia" was one of the first things mentioned in Droolin' Joe's response speech! He didn't get into any actual details, he just said the word "Russia" in his preamble, as if just the mere mention would get every Leftist in the room salivating like Pavlov's dog ....
I want my safe space. It used to be called America.
How is that for a scare scenario.
No wonder Hawaii liberal panic rats sent a false missile alert.
I was listening to NPR this morning and they were talking to a crowd of Precious Snowflakes (PS) about the speech. One of the things they complained bitterly about was that he didn’t mention the “dramatic” rise of white supremacist groups.
I must have missed that rise. Maybe I need to read those free newspapers they have stacked in all the coffee shops in the liberal enclaves in the Blue cities.
*shrug* He certainly started drooling!
The FLOTUS guests had a tour of the WH, heard they bowled, and had a couple of receptions. What a diverse group of people with such different stories. Looks like they all had such respect for each other. God bless them.
Most of her guests just broke my heart. The two sets of parents whose daughters had been murdered by the MS-13 gang brought tears, as did Otto Warmbiers parents. Thinking on how Obama handled Warmbiers detention, telling the parents to wait with strategic patience, raised my blood pressure. Obama didnt want to to anything at all about Otto. Trump is doing great at getting the Americans held hostage released. Obama never cared. Ottos parents had me in tears, too. And the heroes in the FLOTUS enclosure.......there are great Americans living amongst us. It was so refreshing to hear a pro-American speech. It has been 8 long years of hearing how terrrible we are, especially White Americans.....last night was a good shot in the arm for Patriots.
Otto’s parents were afraid to speak out until Trump actually got their son out, unfortunately too late. Those poor people. And those poor parents of the girls killed by ME-13. Those people were very courageous sharing their pain with the nation in the hope of solving these problems.
painting the North Korean government as an enemy of humanity and of Christianity.
I sincerely doubt that the President is needed to paint NK as a enemy of humanity and Christianity and just about everything else! Unless you work for CNN or are a student at a liberal college you know those things already!
Well, it was a signal.
That everything in the speech could be discounted, because of Russia. That the FBI actively working against Trump is ok, Russia.
It is kind of like a blessing to do anything
