Trump called Kim Jong Un ‘Rocket Man on a suicide mission.’
Kim called Trump ‘a dotard’ and ‘mentally deranged.’
Trump called Kim ‘a madman’ and Kim called Trump ‘a frightened dog.’
The Chinese stepped in and said everybody ought to take a deep breath and calm down and, of all people, the Russians said the whole thing sounded like ‘a kindergarten fight.’ Whoever heard of the Russians being the voice of reason? But there’s no denying it: Trump and Kim were acting like a pair of teenage boys.
I wonder what would happen if both Kim and Trump, alone, just the two of them, were sent to a deserted atoll in the Pacific Ocean where, when they threaten to ‘rain fire’ on their enemies, they could only hurt each other and no one else. Would their blustering stop?
