Lying Sarah Huckabee Sanders Takes Obama’s Words Out of Context About Destroying North Korea

Lying Sarah Huckabee Sanders tries to justify Donald Trump’s threat to destroy North Korea by taking former President Obama’s words out of context.

Trump embarrassed himself at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday saying that if the U.S. or its allies are forced to defend themselves, they will “totally destroy North Korea.”

Huckabee Sanders tweeted: “Presidents have always been clear to deter threats: “We could, obviously, destroy North Korea with our arsenals,” — @BarackObama last year.

Um, here is Obama’s full quote….

“We could, obviously, destroy North Korea with our arsenals, but aside from the humanitarian costs of that, they are right next door to our vital ally, the Republic of Korea.”

Obama continued: “One of the things that we have been doing is spending a lot more time positioning our missile defense systems so that even as we try to resolve the underlying development of nuclear development inside of North Korea, we’re also setting up a shield that can at least block the relatively low-level threats that they are posing right now.”

President Obama clearly knew that war with North Korea would be a bad idea because of the casualties on both sides.

Of course, Twitter clapped back:
