Fox News, North Korean State TV Mashup Shows Scary Similarities In Coverage




 

"The Daily Show" posted a mashup on Twitter Thursday that compared the coverage of President Donald Trump on Fox News to the state-controlled television in North Korea's rhetoric on leader Kim Jong Un.

They are ... alarmingly similar.

The minute-and-a-half clip features various Fox News personalities talking about Trump's meeting with Kim earlier this month. Those clips are shown in tandem with the booming and celebratory commentary about Kim from personalities on North Korean state TV.

"Only days ago, President Trump ushered in a new era of diplomacy," says Fox News host Sean Hannity in one clip, followed by a North Korean state TV presenter saying of Kim: "Our venerable supreme leader comrade opened a new, triumphant era of diplomacy."

There are a handful of other clips, with the rhetoric about each leader being nearly identical. Take Fox's Jeanine Pirro saying of Trump: "This is something that many analysts and pundits thought was totally impossible," followed by a state TV presenter saying: "Who could have imagined that this moment was possible?"

You can watch the full mashup madness above.

U.S. President Donald Trump pressed fellow Republicans in Congress on Thursday to "get tough" and push to fund his proposed border wall in the current spending bill, raising the specter of a government shutdown when funding lapses later this month. In a post on Twitter, Trump called the bill "ridiculous" for not including funds for a planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, and blamed Democrats for blocking it in the plan passed by the Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday. The Senate-approved massive spending package included a provision to fund the federal government through Dec. 7 in an effort to avoid a government shutdown when funding ends Sept. 30.
