I now am going to admit something.
I giggled a bit when I read something about what Donald Trump tweeted about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Kim supposedly said something about Trump being “old.” The president took offense. He said he’d never call Kim “short and fat.”
Oops! Didn’t he just do exactly that? Sure he did.
Actually I found the president’s tweet kinda/sorta clever. But I don’t want to encourage him to keep doing it.
You see, the worldwide stakes are pretty damn high. Kim wants to build a nuclear weapon delivery system that reaches the United States of America. He’s said so publicly. Trump keeps yammering about “the military option” being on the table.
It’s a dangerous world out there, Mr. President. Going to war in Korea isn’t an option — and I don’t give a damn what the president threatens to do if Kim keeps “threatening” the United States and South Korea.
He’s dealing with someone no one outside of North Korea seems to know. No one can determine with any certainty how he will respond to these kinds of personal insults.
I just wish the president would stop saying out loud what he’s entitled to think in private.
