Trump Defends Kim Jong-Un, Calls Him A “Friend” After Latest Missile Launch

What is WRONG with him?

Donald Trump offered a tepid response after South Korean officials reported that North Korea conducted a third test launch in just over a week, firing what appeared to be short-range ballistic missiles. Our European allies and the UN have all condemned the launches, but not Trump. Instead, Trump referred to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as his “friend.” Trump sure has forgotten about Otto Warmbier now that he can’t use him as a political prop.

Trump, of course, used Twitter to respond to the missile launches in a series of tweets.

This one tweet says it all.

Just last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that North Korea has continued to develop fissile material and intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States. But, hey, it’s all cool, you guys, because “Chariman” Kim and Donald are friends. Sounds legit!

Trump is making excuses for Kim Jong Un’s repeated violations while failing to call him out. Trump has a fascination with dictators, but it would be nice if he had an equal fascination with the U.S.

Trump calls out NFL players who silently protest, he calls out entire cities, black politicians, and people of color in the U.S., but he’s incapable of reining in a world leader who poses a threat to humanity.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
