Stuart Varney Gets Knickers In A Twist At Trump Critic: 'You Don't Approve Of Our President, Do You?'
Like many of us, Bermant surmises that by Trump's warring rhetoric against North Korea is forcing a "put up or shut up" move from Kim Jong-Un. And given the immaturity and narcissism of both leaders, the world is dangerously close to military actions.
Dr. Bermant is confirms what we all know: that much of the world feels the same way. Why Varney waited almost three weeks to interview him is beyond me.
