As the Trump administration considers a number of different strategies to deal with the current tension in the Korean peninsula, there is one idea that he hasn’t considered that might just be the perfect solution to the problem.
Mike Huckabee made the brilliant suggestion. According to Fox News, he says President Trump should send Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) to Pyongyang to negotiate a deal with the Korean leader. After having to deal with her for half an hour, the young dictator would surely capitulate rather than have to deal with her anymore.
In a joking tweet, former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) said: “@POTUS has dispatched Maxine Waters to NOKO to talk to Lil Kim. After ½ hour with her he will drink whatever he gave to his ½ bother.”
What Huckabee is referring to, of course, is when Kim Jong-nam succumbed to the deadly VX nerve agent after two Vietnamese women exposed him to the chemical, presumably under the orders of Kim Jong-un.
Rep. Waters has been one of Trump’s most frequent critics, frequently calling for his impeachment, as well as claiming that the unsubstantiated dossier was “absolutely true,” and requires a full investigation into the matter. “If we do the investigation, then we will find the connections. And I do think that impeachment will be necessary,” Waters said.
Waters has also been a supporter of the leaks that have been plaguing the White House. When asked if she felt they compromised national security, she said, “No, I am so glad they’re telling us what’s going on. I need to hear those conversations,” and asserted that many in the White House who don’t believe in the president’s agenda are justified in undermining him.
Trump and Huckabee aren’t the only ones who would be delighted to send Waters off to North Korea. Dan Bongino, former Secret Service agent and conservative spokesperson, has previously called her a fraud.
“Maxine Waters is a fraud. And I don’t use that term lightly. I can prove it to you. She’s an actual fraud,” said Bongino. “Maxine Waters swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States…she’s then suggested on a national television show to violate the law, violate the Constitution, destroy our efforts in international diplomacy to advance her sick agenda of an impeachment for a crime that doesn’t exist? It’s the definition of insanity.”
Waters has said that Trump is the worst president in her lifetime as well as the most deplorable person she has ever met. Fortunately, most of America disagrees.
As Trump weighs the serious options for dealing with Kim Jong-un, people will criticize him regardless of the actions he chooses. Instead of applauding his willingness to confront an issue that has been avoided by presidents for over 20 years, people like Waters will continue to find excuses to complain.
The question remains as to whether Water’s opinion of how to deal with North Korea would be changed if she understood the situation on the ground first hand. In the end, she would either become more educated on the matter or exposed further as a political charlatan and a fraud.
Ironically, at this juncture, Kim Jong-un’s pal Dennis Rodman has more political prowess concerning North Korea than Rep. Waters. Maybe the people of Water’s congressional district would be better represented by Rodman!
