LOL! Oh man… Terry Moran of ABC went into a full-blown meltdown with his reaction to President Trump’s United Nations speech this week in which he condemned the POTUS’ warning to North Korea as a freaking war crime!

Oddly, he even compared the whole speech to something he felt Vladimir Putin would give.

Trump went on to say that if America is “forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” This prompted Moran’s meltdown, saying “The words ‘totally destroying’ a nation of 25 million people, that borders on the threat of committing a war crime.”

As written by Scott Whitlock for NewsBusters.org:

The speech included lines like this one: “The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.” The President also condemned the “murderous regime” in Iran. Somehow, Moran twisted these remarks into a defense of dictators:

He said something, frankly, that Vladimir Putin would have said — no question about it — when he said, “We do not expect diverse countries to share the same cultures, but we do expect all nations to uphold two core sovereign duties, to respect the interests of their own people and the rights of every other sovereign nation.” And there are lots of dictators around the world, including Vladimir Putin, who say the same thing and will hear those words, however President Trump meant them, as a license to do whatever they want to their own people.

Moran isn’t always so tough on new presidents. On February 20, 2009, he compared Barack Obama to George Washington: “I like to say that, in some ways, Barack Obama is the first President since George Washington to be taking a step down into the Oval Office.”

………………………

Haha oh man, what a freaking tool Moran is. A lot of people are coming out for Trump on this one, siding with him. Personally, I think he knocked it out of the park.

Some of the transcript:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: I want to bring in our chief foreign correspondent, Terry Moran in London this morning as well. And Terry, as I said, a meditation on this theme of strong sovereign nations. A very unapologetic speech from President Trump.

TERRY MORAN: That’s right, George. This is the revenge of the nation-state, which was meant to bring the nation states together after they tore the world apart in World War II under the umbrella of cooperation. Every American president — the United States basically birthed the United Nations and every president since then has at least paid lip service to this notion of bringing the nations together under the aegis of the United Nations. This was very different. He said something, frankly, that Vladimir Putin would have said — No question about it — when he said, “We do not expect diverse countries to share the same cultures, but we do expect all nations to uphold two core sovereign duties, to respect the interests of their own people and the rights of every other sovereign nation.” And there are lots of dictators around the world, including Vladimir Putin, who say the same thing and will hear those words, however President Trump meant them, as a license to do whatever they want to their own people.
