As we’ve reported, three American citizens who were being held in North Korea have been released, and President Trump, VP Mike Pence and others greeted them upon their return at Joint Base Andrews at about 2 a.m. this morning:

Former Obama adviser David Axelrod thought the welcome home was OK, but there was too much narcissism for his taste:
Everyone should cheer the return of the hostages. I do.
But it was strange that the first thing the @VP said was that he was moved by their “expression of support for the @POTUS.”
It’s like North Korea is rubbing off on HIM.

Trump and Pence welcoming home the released North Korea hostages at 2 a.m. could hardly match at any level the shamelessness of Obama’s mid-day Rose Garden feting of the parents of Bowe Bergdahl after his release from Taliban captivity (in return for five terrorists from Gitmo), actions for which he was later found guilty of desertion:
Flacks for former President Selfie-Stick are the last people who should be making narcissism allegations about somebody else.
Remember when Obama traded 5 terrorist for a traitor? Don't hate the #Winning

I feel like I live in a alternate Universe when reading things you and other Democrats say. YOU know if this happened under Obama's tenure YOU and ALL Democrats would be celebrating him as a historic hero! The media would be bowing at his feet! Well they did that anyway.?
