Who knew, right? All this time, we’ve been thinking we’re all probably going to die in a nuclear war ignited between two very small (in every way) but very powerful men: North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and our own Pres. Dotard Donald.
As a quick recap of the genuinely terrifying “relationship” between these two, read here and here and here and here and here and here. And only LAST WEEK, they were both boasting about the sizes of their nuclear buttons. Watch:
Anyhow…I won’t waste your time by rehashing all the crazy that these two nutters have said about and (indirectly, through the media and Twitter) to each other. Let’s focus on the cheerful news from today: our Prez. Dotard Donald and Rocket Man are now BFFs, with our ridiculous president revealing his affection for the North Korean dictator in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. From The New York Times coverage of WSJ’s story:
“I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-un,” Mr. Trump told The Wall Street Journal in an interview. “I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised.”
Yeah. Yeah, we are. And also we don’t believe you. Continuing:
“You’ll see that a lot with me,” Mr. Trump said, referring to the difference between his friendly tone toward Mr. Kim and his previous tweets calling him a “maniac” and a “short and fat” person. “And then all of the sudden somebody’s my best friend. I could give you 20 examples. You could give me 30. I’m a very flexible person.”
Wait, what? We “see that a lot” with you?!? Are you KIDDING me. What? What????
Also from the Times:
In the interview on Thursday, Mr. Trump said he expected that North Korea’s effort to talk with South Korea is an attempt to drive a wedge between the South Koreans and the United States. He said that probably was their motivation, and he suggested that he should know.
“The difference is I’m president, other people aren’t,” Mr. Trump told The Wall Street Journal. “And I know more about wedges than any human being that’s lived.”
As my husband said, “yeah he’s an expert at driving wedges.”
Folks, we’ve got to come together as Americans and get this moron out of the driver’s seat. Oh. My. Gawd.
