When the Media Was Totally Cool with Presidents Meeting Dictators

History was made this week when President Donald Trump was photographed shaking hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un — much to the dismay of left-wingers everywhere.

After coming to terms with the fact that North Korea was not in fact going to fire a nuclear missile at the United States, Trump’s critics then began shaming him for wanting to meet with a totalitarian dictator in the first place. Make no mistake — this isn’t an inappropriate label for Kim. He is one of the most repressive political leaders the world has ever seen. However, it doesn’t take much research to reveal that the media has a double standard with this.

Not long ago, former President Barack Obama also made history by reestablishing a diplomatic relationship with Cuba — a country which has been under the rule of a communist dictatorship since 1959. As evidenced in the image to the left — which features two stores by the same author separated by just a few years — the media isn’t even hiding its pro-Democrat bias.

Now, this isn’t to suggest the atrocities committed by the Castro regime in Cuba and the Kim dynasty in North Korea are the same. Regardless, both countries are essentially massive gulag states where political rights for citizens are near non-existent. Obviously, the United States can only do so much to change that from the outside, but that’s really hard to do without any dialogue to speak of.
