Jimmy Kimmel Calls NK Cheerleaders ‘Real Stars’ of Olympics — Makes Fun of Their Brutal Reality

Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel joined the latest media craze of fawning over all-things-North Korea at the Winter Olympics. Kimmel praised North Korea’s red-clad cheerleaders, calling them the real “stars” of the Olympic games with their “catchy” cheers and synchronized movements.

“These women are cheering like their lives depended on it — because they do, they literally do,” laughed Kimmel, before leading the audience in a mock imitation of the cheerleaders.

For such an outspoken champion of compassion — who recently complained that America has become a cruel country — Kimmel’s glib attitude toward the real horrors behind the North Korean curtain seems a tad hypocritical, to say the least.

Here’s the real reason they’re “smiling”

On the show today, Glenn shared one of the stories behind those smiles. More than ten years ago, the North Korean cheerleaders charmed the people of South Korea when they accompanied the North Korean athletes to the Busan Asian Games. Sadly, 21 of the young women ended up in a detention camp upon their return to North Korea for the crime of speaking about what they saw in South Korea. They are still imprisoned today.

Watch the video clip at the top of the page to get Glenn’s take on the mainstream media’s strange obsession with glorifying the North Korean dictatorial regime.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
