Why does he do this?
Why does President Trump, in the middle of what is turning out to be a highly successful overseas trip, overshadow his successes by again jumping into a sandbox with the deranged man-child running North Korea?
Here is Mr. Trump’s twitter response to kim jung-un calling him “old”.
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!
Congratulations, Mr. President. kim jung-un, a sick joke on legs, insults you… and, even after almost a year in the Oval Office, you still can’t restrain yourself from answering in kind?
Mr. President: a response like this accomplishes nothing other than telling the world your ego remains above the ionosphere and your skin remains as thin as crepe paper. Plus, it goads the idiot in Pyongyang to do something stupid and dangerous – which he is entirely capable of even without you goading him.
In other words, it is yet another instance of Trumpidity (stupidity from Donald Trump) on parade.
How I wish the parade were over. But, evidently, it’s still right there on Main Street.
