Apparently Fox News And The Right Are Okay With Trump Saying He Wants To Be Like Kim Jong-Un

I thought Fox News and their viewers were totally against government tyranny, etc. At least they were when Obama was in office.  And one of the most tired arguments that we often hear from 2nd Amendment people is that guns are needed to protect against tyrants, dictators, etc.

Now, right-wingers are apparently just swell with Trump literally saying he wants to be like the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-Un.

The disdain for Obama must have been for a different reason…Can’t quite put my finger on it…

Trump Is Not Acting Like An Innocent Man

When you look at the big picture of how Trump has either leaned on, or directly asked top officials in the investigation into Russia’s interference in our 2016 presidential election for their loyalty or to help him out in some way, the pattern of behavior becomes quite clear.  Trump wants the FBI and United States intelligence apparatus to function as his own personal arm of protection.  He clearly does not view these officials as that which they are supposed to be – independent of partisan or personal influence on the part of the president – and wants them to do his bidding, which in this case is clearly to obstruct the Russia investigation.
