Yes, the Washington Post Editorial Board is having a snit fit
EGYPTIAN STRONGMAN Abdel Fatah al-Sissi claimed he was the first foreign leader to call President-elect Donald Trump with congratulations. He had good reason: In meetings with the two presidential contenders in New York in September, Mr. Sissi was chided by Hillary Clinton about his abominable human rights record, while Mr. Trump issued him a free pass, calling him “a fantastic guy.” “Egypt hopes the presidency of Donald Trump will inject new life in Egyptian-American relations,” said a jaunty statement from Mr. Sissi’s office Wednesday.
If Mr. Trump follows the course he set in the presidential campaign, there will be many more such statements — and a rush to repression in countries around the world. At least since President Wilson carried his Fourteen Points to the 1919 Versailles conference, the United States has been the world’s foremost promoter of human rights and democracy. Mr. Trump appears ready to walk away from that role.
Got that? Human rights are doomed, and we know this even before Trump takes office. It’s going to be a fun 4-8 years of apoplexy from lefties.
Anyhow, the WPEB notes that Obama has been sorta lukewarm on this whole human rights thing. They fail to mention how he opened up with Cuba without pushing human rights. How he blew off Iran jailing dissidents and Americans in order to push the Iran deal. How he and Hillary backed the Muslim Brotherhood candidate in Egypt. Backed Assad in Syria. Blew off human rights in China in favor of climate change. The list goes on and on.
