Who would have ever thought that we’d reach a point in time when the masses actually agree with a communist dictator’s thoughts on the United States president? Well that’s exactly what happened after North Korea leader Kim Jong Un accused Donald Trump of exhibiting “mentally deranged behavior.”
Tensions have been high between the two leaders for some time now. Things reached a peak after Donald Trump said he’d “totally destroy” North Korea if the United States was ever forced to defend its allies while speaking at the United Nations. Trump followed up by taunting the North Korean leader on Twitter referring to him as, “Rocket Man.”
No stranger to making controversial statements, Kim Jong Un released a statement via KCNA, North Korea’s new agency, where he compared Trump’s recent marks to “mentally deranged behavior.”

Kim Jong Un calling Trump a #dotard means he's used an English dictionary at least one more time than Trump.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) September 21, 2017
Un’s insult didn’t end there. He referred to Trump as a ‘dotard’ fueling online searches for the word’s definition.

While Kim Jong Un’s recent comments did provide some comic relief, it’s important to note that he closed his anti-Trump rant with a threat to make the POTUS “pay dearly” for his recent comments.
