Senator Marco Rubio ripped the media on Tuesday over the hypocrisy in coverage of President Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un.

As reported by thehill.com

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Tuesday charged that the news media’s coverage of President Trump’s meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was “hypocritical.”

“Presidents meeting with [Kim Jong Un] exposed incredible hypocrisy of many in media. When Obama did these things, he was described as enlightened. When Trump does it he is reckless & foolish. 1 yr ago they attacked Trump for leading us towards war, now attack for being too quick for peace,” Rubio said in a tweet.

The senator went on to comment on an article from New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof that was critical of the outcome of Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un, saying Trump made “a huge concession” in exchange for “astonishingly little.”
Rubio said that although he is “uncomfortable” with Trump’s decision to suspend military exercises with South Korea, the U.S. can quickly react by increasing sanctions if Kim does not follow through in negotiations.

“I’m uncomfortable with suspending military exercises & if this becomes permanent in exchange for nothing you are 100% correct. However after Trump bent over backwards to be conciliatory, if [Kim Jong Un] does nothing, intl sanctions will be easier to enforce & increase,” he tweeted.

What are your thoughts on Marco Rubio’s comments? Do you agree that the media is being too hypocritical?
