NBC’s Jeremy Bash Rails Against ‘Disgusting’ Trump-Kim Handshake: ‘A Debasement of the American Flag’

NBC News analyst Jeremy Bash was absolutely livid at the sight of President Donald Trump shaking hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un before a backdrop of American and North Korean flags.

Appearing as part of MSNBC’s coverage of the summit in Singapore, Bash — a former CIA chief of staff — railed against the greeting, and the proceedings as a whole

A summit is not an accomplishment for the American president…It is a major accomplishment for Kim Jong Un. And in fact, the spectacle of seeing the American flags along with the DPRL flags as the backdrop for that handshake is really jarring actually to see, to witness. In fact, I would say it’s somewhat disgusting. It is actually a debasement of the American flag. This is a despotic regime that murders its own citizens. And so we’re putting him on the same stage as the American president.
