(The Daily Wire) -- As has now been well documented, the leftist media has not been able to contain their fawning admiration for North Korea. Some major outlets like CNN, The Washington Post, and ABC have raved that Kim Jong-Un's sister (Kim Yo-jong is her name), and a group of North Korean cheerleaders, have "stolen the show" and grabbed "the spotlight." NBC squealed that North Korea's cheer squad (the "army of beauties," as The New York Times referred to them) has been "so satisfying to watch." Reuters claimed that North Korea has "won the gold" for "diplomacy" at the games. The Times, infatuated with Yo-jong's smile, said that the U.S. has been "outflanked in diplomacy" by the communist regime.
Michael Moore proclaimed his "love" for the "F Trump" attitude displayed by the North Korean contingent. Yo-jong was dubbed "the Ivanka Trump of North Korea," and many regular Twitter users reacted with glee when they noted the "side eye" and "shade" she threw at Mike Pence during the opening ceremony. A beaming Think Progress summed it up this way: "North Korea's charm offensive is working."
