And you thought ABC, CNN, and NBC engaging in a love-fest with North Korea was bad âŚ check out this hot mess from POLITICO:
â POLITICO (@politico) February 11, 2018
The father of University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier said Saturday that North Korea is not participating in the spirit of the 2018 Winter Olympics, criticizing the nation that held his son in captivity until he was released last year and died shortly after returning to the U.S.
âWe have to put this in context in the spirit of the Olympics and why weâre here,â Fred Warmbier told NBCâs Lester Holt according to excerpts from an interview set to air in full Saturday evening. âAnd so when you put it that way theyâre not really participating in the Olympics.â
Notice POLITICO left out the tidbit about how North Korea was RESPONSIBLE for Ottoâs death âŚ really guys?
He continued: âTheir athletes are not exchanging ideas with other athletes in the Olympic Village or really participating, so thatâs a political statement.â
Fred Warmbier is attending the Olympics as a guest of Vice President Mike Pence and member of the U.S. delegation.
Cue the Pence hate.
Sometimes all we can do is shake our heads.
Delete your life. He said no such thing. https://t.co/fFDnPhBVW2

But TRUUUUUMP! Wait, does that work here?
Eff it, they blame Trump for everything so why not.
Well if it was your son who was tortured to death, I would hope you would criticize also.

If it was this editor in Warmbierâs place you can bet your sweet bippyÂ there would be more than just some âcriticismâ about North Korea.
What the hell is wrong with you people?

How long yaâ got?
This is what he is saying, you idiotsâŚ who would trash a father who lost a son after it was tortured by NK: He continued: âTheir athletes are not exchanging ideas with other athletes in the Olympic Village or really participating, so that's a political statement." THIS. THIS.

It doesnât take much to NOT write anything if you canât write something nice about a parent whose child was basically murdered by North Korea.
Be better, POLITICO.
