One of the more ironic headlines I have read.

Assuming the transcripts are accurate, Trump has a less than perfect command of the English language.

But still a pretty smart cookie, right?

Trump also queried Duterte about whether he believed Kim was "stable or not stable." The Philippine leader responded that their North Korean counterpart's "mind is not working and he might just go crazy one moment."

Strict, dangerous authoritarians arguing about themselves.

Kim responds with the classic, "I know you are, but what am I?"

Nutjob, madman, losers... Trump has to be one of the worst presidential orator I have ever heard. Yesterday's post-Manchester speech was cringe-worthy, especially the 'I don't call them monsters' bit. Embarrassing.

Does madness run through three generations?

Does madness run through three generations?

Thing is, I don't believe Kim Il Sung was mad. Determined, arrogant and steadfast in his belief in the juche system and the DPRK - he was the only one of the dynasty who was an actual soldier. And as he approached the end of his life; he began to mellow somewhat. Unfortunately; shy, reclusive and eccentric Kim Il Jong came next and things got significantly worse. Quite often, during his father's later years, the younger Kim was often operating at odds with other sections of DPRK government departments and one gets the impression from reports that the elderly Kim was unaware of various developments.

Not that he was blameless, of course.

And now the world has Kim Jong Un to deal with. A cosy, cushioned life, a man used to getting what he wants. A man with sycophants and a man who has something to prove. Sounds familiar.

Takes one to know what, except that Trump is far madder -- in both senses of the word. And anyway, "(he's) a madman with nuclear weapons... who's a gentleman I'd like to meet"?

A madman with nuclear weapons is gossiped about by a bigger madman with bigger nuclear weapons to a straight-up psychopath with no nuclear weapons (thank Ford).

Except out of the three, Un is the most stable and predictable.

Since when is idle chitchat news. How droll...

"I know what I am but what are you?"

Kim Jong Un is firing missiles into the Sea of Japan, threatens to destroy the US, SK and Japan and Trump's The madman?? You guys need to put the Jägermeister down for a moment. Now if Trump threatens to destroy the North and fire missiles, then you can talk.

My liberal friends, stop drinking the grape kool aid. Lol
