Video: Keith Ellison Defends Kim Jong Un From Trump


DNC Deputy Chair Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) claimed that the North Korean Dictator, Kim Jong-Un, is acting more reasonably than the President of the United States while talking at the Netroots Nation Annual Conference on Friday. 

“North Korea is a serious thing. You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there. Kim Jong Un, the world always thought he was not a responsible leader,” said Ellison in response to a question on how to prevent President Trump sending the country into war by using a “predictable emergency.”

“Well, he’s acting more responsibly than this guy is,” he claimed, referring to the President.

“And — but I’m telling you is that, once these — once you start seeing missile launches, you’re going to see — the time for cranking up the anti-war machine is right now. So, if you don’t want to get caught deer in the headlights, start calling for diplomacy in North Korea immediately.”

We all know that threatening a world superpower and its allies is reasonable. We also know that developing nuclear weapons just to destroy a country and its people is reasonable. It’s just a shame that the President has been so unreasonable to the Dictator of North Korea, at least in Ellison’s mind
