Yesterday night, TV comedian Conan O'Brien had a joke about Secretary Clinton:
Hillary Clinton’s in the news. Yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sent a stern warning to North Korea to stop their belligerent actions. Yep. Her exact quote was, “Don’t make me get all Hillary on your a#@.”
That may just be a joke, but Clinton did have some stern words for North Korea in late April, and in the past two days, she has made some remarks regarding North Korea’s bad behavior.
In her Sunday interview on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Clinton said the United States is reconsidering whether to put North Korea back on its list of state sponsors of terrorism. And yesterday, in remarks after meeting with Indonesia’s foreign minister (see photo below), she was asked by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell about the harsh 12-year sentence to hard labor that North Korean authorities gave to American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee. Clinton said:
Obviously, we are deeply concerned about the length of the sentences and the fact that this trial was conducted totally in secret with no observers. And we’re engaged in all possible ways through every possible channel to secure their release. And we, once again, urge North Korea to grant their immediate release on humanitarian grounds.
