Donald Trump threatens to destroy North Korea (a war crime) and called its leader, Kim Jong Un, “Rocket Man” during his speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday. Um, the embarrassment continues.
Trump said: “Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime.” He added that if the U.S. or its allies are forced to defend themselves, they will “totally destroy North Korea.”

Last year former President Obama quoted Martin Luther King Jr. during his speech before the General Assembly. This year, 45 is threatening Kim Jong Un by engaging in juvenile name-calling. The last person to talk this crazy before the UNGA was Iran’s former lunatic leader Mahmoud Ahmandinejad. Remember him?
By the way, not once did he mention Russia’s interference in our election in his rant. It begs the question, what does Vladimir Putin have on him? Must be much more than the Steele dossier.
Trump also said some parts of the world “are going to hell” as he questions the UN’s focus and mission. If you aren’t hanging your head in shame yet, then you must not be paying attention to the shitshow playing out in real time before our eyes.
Meanwhile, UN Secretary General António Guterres delivered a different kind of speech. The one we should have heard from the so-called US president.

Perfect skill for a marketing executive, not President of the United States trying to defuse a nuclear crisis that threatens int'l security. https://t.co/6XtJQ1Fz3s

On this episode of The Apprentice, Donald Trump goes to the UN and fires "Rocket Man."

Apparently, the U N General Assembly understands the irony of Putin's Pathetic Traitor Puppet making the case for America First right now. pic.twitter.com/ENPi2fjZgG

I hope the U.N. General Assembly simultaneous translators are getting hazard pay for having to translate this garbage. #UNGA
