This week's news has been dominated by everyone's favorite kid dictator Kim Jong Un. If watching the 1990's Chicago Bulls equivalent of Kim Kardashian go on vacation wasn't bad enough, the North Koreans decided to return a barely breathing Otto Warmbier. Even though Rodman says the supreme leader-in-chief is a "misunderstood nice guy," the US public is furious. We speak to our North Korean expert Riki Ellison and find out the reasoning behind Warmbier's return was and what he thinks Trump's next move will be.
Then, the crisis in Qatar continues as the nation's neighbors make demands and Qatar refuses. The demands include closing the largest Arab-based news network, Al Jazeera. We speak to Kareem in Egypt about his experiences with the Qatari global news giant and why he thinks the sanctions are a necessary measure.
In the Change Is Hard segment, the US media is still hot on the case of the Russian threat. This time Obama is back in the spotlight for knowing about Putin's attempt to "meddle" in the US election and doing nothing about it. This is nothing new, this is what VTA and the Russians came to expect from the former president. Remember the line in the sand? We already knew Obama would never make good on his threats, so why is this revelation so groundbreaking?
