Ingraham: Anti-Trump Media Response to Summit 'Galling, Predictable, Blatant'
In her Angle commentary, Laura Ingraham said the anti-Trump media response to his Singapore summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is "galling and predictable and oh-so-blatant."
Ingraham said that the left has "changed" since the pro-peace movements of the 1970s she said were led by performers like Jackson Browne and others.
"The left thought we should all stop being so belligerent toward the Soviet Union," she said, adding that they should have then viewed the Singapore summit as a "moment to savor."
Ingraham ripped former Rep. Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.), who hosts MSNBC's morning show, as an example of such behavior.
"Donald Trump -- The real estate developer doesn't realize that this dictator doesn't want beach condos [in North Korea], he wants nuclear weapons," Scarborough said.

Scarborough's co-host, Mika Brzezinski, said Trump displayed a "lack of knowledge" during his diplomacy with Kim.
Ingraham also showed video of news personality Chris Hayes warning in 2017 that Trump could "literally inadvertently trigger a catastrophe" with North Korea.
Elise Jordan, a former adviser to President George W. Bush and to the 2016 presidential campaign of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) added on another program that "Donald Trump can relate to authoritarians."
Ingraham said that those in the media who have criticized the president for this summit are only doing so because "the man doing the outreach and negotiating is Donald J. Trump."
"The left will still not give [Trump] a shred of credit," she said.
