Trump questioned why 'pretty Korean lady' analyst wasn't working on North Korea: report

Source: The Hill



BY JOHN BOWDEN - 01/12/18 03:10 PM EST

President Trump questioned why a career intelligence analyst wasn't leading negotiations with North Korea on behalf of the United States because of her Korean heritage, NBC News reported Friday.

Trump, who was meeting with the analyst as part of a briefing on a family being released by militants in Pakistan, waited until the briefing was over before questioning her where she was from.

"New York," she replied. Trump pressed on, asking her where her "people" are from.

When the analyst responded that her parents were from South Korea, the president reportedly responded by asking a nearby adviser why the "pretty Korean lady" was not negotiating with North Korea's government on behalf of the Trump administration. The analyst, whose name was not released, is reportedly trained in hostage negotiation, not diplomacy.

10. Agreed. And if he knew anything about our intelligence agencies, he'd know it includes personnel

who speak the language and know the culture for many countries. What an idiot.

3. What the fucking fuck?



I bet he thought she was Chinese since "all Asians" must be Chinese just like "all Hispanics" are Mexicans.

4. He thinks people are interchangeable...you know, like putting Rick Perry in charge of

Department of Energy, and putting a physician in charge of Housing & Urban Development.

5. I can't believe

We actually had one of those clueless "No, Where are you really from?" moments with the POTUS.

6. "Oh, you're from New York...have you worked in my hotels?"



Racist, sexist Trump is the worst "president" ever!

(And that list includes a LOT of Republicans like Reagan and W Bush)

7. Great

Trump's going to sort everyone out and separate them into ethnicities and races

What does he do with mixed ethnicities, or mixed races?

You know, European mongrels, Scots-Irish?

Will we soon have "Half-breed" as a census choice?

Is there any clearer indication of where he's headed with this?

9. He's completely unaware that there are *qualifications*

for jobs -- since he doesn't have any -- beyond being of a matching ethnic group or religion. Witness the witless Kushner being given the Middle East "peace portfolio".

12. Next he'll be grabbing at the "pretty ones"

14. "Where are you from, anyway?"

"Bakersfield, originally."
"No, I mean your ancestors."
"Oh, them. Pittsburgh."

Funniest moment in Short Circuit.
