Calling Trump "Dotard", is like calling water wet.


North Korea threatens to resume calling Trump ‘dotard’
By HYUNG-JIN KIM an hour ago

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea threatened Thursday to resume insults of U.S. President Donald Trump and consider him a “dotard” if he keeps using provocative language, such as referring to its leader as “rocket man.”

Choe Son Hui, the first vice foreign minister, issued the warning via state media days after Trump spoke of possible military action toward the North and revived his “rocket man” nickname for North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un.

The comments came as prospects dim for a resumption of nuclear diplomacy between the two countries. In recent months, North Korea has hinted at lifting its moratorium on nuclear and long-range missile tests if the Trump administration fails to make substantial concessions in nuclear diplomacy before the end of the year.

Choe said Trump’s remarks “prompted the waves of hatred of our people against the U.S.” because they showed “no courtesy when referring to the supreme leadership of dignity” of North Korea.

She said North Korea will respond with its own harsh language if Trump again uses similar phrases and shows that he is intentionally provoking North Korea.

“If any language and expressions stoking the atmosphere of confrontation are used once again on purpose at a crucial moment as now, that must really be diagnosed as the relapse of the dotage of a dotard,” Choe said.

On Wednesday, the North’s military chief, Pak Jong Chon, also warned that the use of force against the North would cause a “horrible” consequence for the Americans. He said North Korea will take unspecified “prompt corresponding actions at any level” if the U.S. takes any military action.

During a visit to London, Trump on Tuesday said his relationship with Kim was “really good” but also called for him to follow up on a commitment to denuclearize. Trump added, “We have the most powerful military we ever had, and we are by far the most powerful country in the world and hopefully we don’t have to use it. But if we do, we will use it.”

Trump also said Kim “likes sending rockets up, doesn’t he?” He added that “That’s why I call him rocket man.”

In 2017, Trump and Kim traded threats of destruction as North Korea carried out a slew of high-profile weapons tests aimed at acquiring an ability to launch nuclear strikes on the U.S. mainland. Trump said he would rain “fire and fury” on North Korea and derided Kim as “little rocket man,” while Kim questioned Trump’s sanity and said he would “tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire.”

The two leaders have avoided such words and developed better relations after North Korea entered nuclear negotiations with the U.S. last year. Trump even said he and Kim “fell in love.”

Kim and Trump have met three times, starting with a summit in Singapore in June last year. But their nuclear diplomacy has remained largely deadlocked since their second meeting in Vietnam in February ended without any deal due to disputes over U.S.-led sanctions on North Korea.

I put something about this in the Trump 2019 thread but I just can't help but laugh at the fact that threats of name calling is what amounts to international diplomacy with the intent of stemming nuclear proliferation in this admin.

Trump just doubled down on showing the world how easily basic mockery manipulates him with his childish taking of his toys and going home from the NATO summit.

Something occurred to me last night. If anyone other than Trump, said the things that he said not only about women in general, but specifically Fiona Hill, or Lisa Page, They would be sitting in jail, on charges of aggravated stalking.

I can’t remember the last time anyone, let alone a president of the United States, was laughed off a continent.

Jesus fucking christ.

Remember when they were "in love"?

Yeah. This is like little kids pulling pigtails to get attention!
Back when I was in sixth grade, there was this fat kid and I could get him all in a tizzy just by poking his fat belly with my index finger. He would just go off. Other kids saw it and started doing it for the entertainment of it all. People do things to see the predictable reaction they get. Trump reacts a lot, so everyone pokes his proverbial belly.

He doesn't get poked any where near enough. He needs to be held to account in interviews.

Back in the 60s, the world was normal, and we took drugs to make it appear strange.

Now, the world is strange, and we take drugs to make it appear normal.

so you were a fucking asshole as a child, shaming another kid into what was probably hell for many years.

I see why you worship a piece of shit like Trump--you see the twinkle-eyed asshole of your former childself in that man, don't you?

Thanks for giving perfectly innocent kids a complex. Never understood bullies. I was big for my age, so they left me alone.

Aren't you a classy.

That man is still a friend of mine and runs a successful real estate company. He's not chubby anymore and we have laughed about it over beers. We produced men back then.
No need to be concerned. Words like yours are more painful than that kind of kid stuff.

A 73-year-old man who's President of the US shouldn't have the immaturity and fragile ego of a sixth-grader.
