On Thursday evening, Kim Jong-Un called Donald Trump a “mentally deranged dotard.”
To be sure, that’s a pretty accurate assessment. In fact, if Trump were to go to a psychiatrist and you could get your hands of the file afterwards, the doctor’s private notes would probably read just like Kim’s statement. Something like this:
He is unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country, and he is surely a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician.
Medicine is the best option in treating the dotard who, hard of hearing, is uttering only what he wants to say.
I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged dotard with Seroquel.
And you know, this is a good time to remind you of why it was a bad idea to let a misogynistic reality TV show host be President. Because you when you inject that level of stupidity into already precarious geopolitical situations that need to be handled with the utmost care in order to avoid outcomes that put millions of people at risk, you get exchanges like what we saw this week:
Trump: “I will totally destroy Rocket Man.”
Kim: “I will definitely tame the dotard with fire.”
Well Trump, having learned absolutely nothing, is back at it this morning on Twitter. Behold, a man who still thinks he’s going to out-bombast Kim:
Do keep in mind that Trump said that just hours after the North’s top diplomat suggested the next “step” for Pyongyang may well be to detonate an H-bomb in the Pacific. Clearly, there are better things to do as President in this scenario than jump on Twitter at 6:28 in the morning and start up with the threats and name calling again.
Trump also retweeted a tweet from Twitter listing who the most tweeted about world leaders were during the U.N. general assembly:
That’s ridiculous for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which is that it’s the very last thing a U.S. President should be concerned about. But beyond that, of course he’s going to be at the top of the list – he, acting in his capacity as the most powerful man on the planet, stood up in front of the U.N. and called another world leader “Rocket Man” before delivering one of the most absurd diatribes anyone has ever witnessed while donning bright-orange face paint.
Finally, Trump has a new Twitter banner image and just for fun, here’s a little compare and contrast exercise…
