North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, gets no respect.
Try as he might to make himself the most feared dictator in the world, he just gets nothing but insults and ridicule.
Donald Trump famously called Kim “Little Rocket Man” after his umpteenth ballistic missile test in November.
Last week, the UN Security Council unanimously voted to apply new, tougher sanctions against the rogue nation. Led by the U.S., the measures included reducing the import of refined petroleum products into North Korea by almost 90 percent.
Kim declared these latest sanctions an “act of war,” adding that the US and other nations which supported the strict measures will pay a heavy price.
Last September, Kim, referring to Trump, declared, “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire.”
But is anyone taking the man seriously? No, not with his long Trumpian history of idle threats.
During Trump’s 12-day tour of Asia, Kim called Trump an “old lunatic.”
Trump responded with a tweet:
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!
Interesting that Trump was offended by the word “old” but not lunatic. But I digress.
It appears the only way the North Korea dictator can gain the respect he craves is by actually starting a nuclear war!
Our narcissistic, bully of a commander in chief is just the guy to egg him on to such a disastrous decison.
Did you hear the joke about Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un walking into a party together? Trump asks the gathering to “say hello to my little friend,” in his best Tony Montana accent … of course.
Kim Jong-un gets no respect.
