North Korea Endorses “Wise” Donald Trump

The Guardian reports:

North Korean state media has praised US presidential hopeful Donald Trump, describing him as a “wise politician” and “far-sighted candidate” who could help unify the Korean peninsula.

An editorial in DPRK Today, an official media outlet, welcomed the Republican presidential candidate’s proposal to hold direct talks with Kim Jong-un, saying he could help bring about Pyongyang’s “Yankee go home” policy.

“There are many positive aspects to Trump’s ‘inflammatory policies’,” wrote Han Yong-mook, who described himself as a Chinese North Korean scholar.

“Trump said he will not get involved in the war between the South and the North, isn’t this fortunate from North Korea’ perspective?”

The article urged Seoul not to increase defence spending so as to prompt a US withdrawal, and urged American voters not to choose the Democratic hopeful, Hillary Clinton.

“The president that US citizens must vote for is not that dull Hillary – who claimed to adapt the Iranian model to resolve nuclear issues on the Korean Peninsula – but Trump, who spoke of holding direct conversation with North Korea.”

      Won’t phase the typical Trump-bot one bit.
      A study found Trumpeteers are united by a trait called “authoritarianism”, which means they are natural followers who crave a “strong man” to idolize. (Also known as LOSERS.)

    It’s like the opening night of Spiderman: the Musical. Still, when you’ve got the North Koreans behind you what could go wrong?

    Oh, and how long before Trump refers to the capital as ‘Poontang’?

    • TuuxKabin

      So Sarah Palin saying “But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies” has some meaning to it. Damn. I guess she can see North Korea from her front porch as well.

      • Robert

        He’ll probably send her on a diplomatic mission there.

        They won’t be able to translate what she says..

        • TuuxKabin

          WE can’t translate what she says. Maybe she’ll make more sense to them.

      I just wish he’d stop referring to Sean Penn as the capital of Cambodia…

    Asked to explain the popularity of Donald Trump –
    ” I can’t . He’s a demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator ” -Stephen Hawking

    ” Voting against Donald Trump at this point, is really treason to your heritage ” – David Duke

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Hmmm, … I think I’ll go with the respected scientist’s perspective and ignore the racist, foaming-at-the-mouth, “former” KKK grand wizard.

      • saucetin

        Trump’s father?

      • wmforr

        I don’t know. How much money does Hawking actually have? Trump has said you can’t be great if you’re not rich. News to Lincoln, Einstein, Jesus, St. Francis, etc., but that’s just the way it is.

    • Yeah, presumably I share a “heritage” with Trump and Duke, in their way of thinking, in that I’m white (bonus points: being German background). But my heritage also includes Hillary. And Bernie. And Obama.

      • Michael Rush

        It’s almost the difference between living in your head with your own ideas and upholding your own self importance and living in a larger complex universe . ME ME ME vs. getting used to the idea that ” ME ” is relatively insignificant .

    Just another reflection ( warning ) of who this tRump guy is and who he attracts.

    Endorsed by Putin, Kim Jong Un, David Duke, the KKK, ‘Pastor’ David Manning, Alex Jones, Michael Savage… Tyrants, racists and fanatics. No doubt if Bin Laden was still alive, he would have endorsed this maniac too.

          The connection of Trump to Hitler isn’t a joke ….

          ” Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed. ”

          “Donald is a believer in the big-lie theory,” his lawyer had told me. “If you say something again and again, people will believe you.”

          A big lie (German: Große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”

    An endorsement that would sink any other candidate.

    • Robert

      He’ll probably fly Sarah Palin to North Korea to hold talks with the Dear Leader. She and Bristol can start a drunken brawl like they did at that birthday party.

      If we’re lucky nobody will ever hear from her again…

      • Ginger Snap

        And Bristol could come home with an anchor baby.

    • WebSlinger

      I completely agree but when you are deal with two massive egos that live their lives shrouded in secrecy and denial this is the end result. Of course North Korea supports Trump as he is in many ways a symbol that North Korea can vilify and ultimately mock if he does become President.

      North Korea would like nothing more to spend the next 4 years stating how corrupt, bigoted, immoral and hateful America is and if Trump is President they will have SO much actual and ongoing footage to show their populace to further fan the flames of hatred of America and Western ideology.

    There ya go trumpanzees and bernie bro’s, the future you seek is talking right too ya! Trump will remove American Military support of South Korea. North Korea will invade South Korea, gaining a broader foot print to place their Nuclear tipped ICBMs, currently under testing. t-Rump thinks it is okay for them to have Nukes based on his stance that any country that wants nuclear arms should be allowed to have them without U.S interference.

    Keep fucking with the election Bernie, and this future will happen.

    • Todd20036

      Most Bernie fans will not go to trump. They’ll just hold someone’s penis and vote for Hillary

      • Robert

        That was my plan.

        Anybody willing to let me hold their penis while I vote?

  • bambinoitaliano

    When the Russian and North Korean praises your candidate, it must be out of the goodness of their heart. If any country who express the care and concern of their people in their nations, you can’t do worst than these two prime model on planet earth. They can’t destroy US from the outside but manipulating stupid Americans causing an implosion is effortless and costless.

    RE: the video Joe posted

    There was a story on the Moth Radio Hour this weekend told by a South Korean reporter, Suki Kim, who went undercover as a teacher at an elite school in NK. She concluded…

    “Three generations of the great leader have now happened and for 70 years the world sat back and just watched which, to me, that silence is indefensible. Lies runs so deep there because the center is rotten and that rottenness is irrevocable.”

    So North Korea thinks Trump would be a pleasure to work with. I got called that a few times, but I never took it as a compliment until I knew who was saying it.

    • Robert

      He probably promised to build a Trump tower there….

      boy are they in for a shock…

    • Charles Manuel P.

      More to the point, they think he would give them a shot at Seoul & the rest of the peninsula. If that doesn’t put away any fear of nuclear tech from the Japanese, I don’t know what would.

  • Jmdintpa

    And yet so many will claim to sit home or vote for trump or some other third party throw away vote ( which is the same as supporting trump) because that mean ole hillary is the same as trump. she is just the worst thing ever. she just wants power. she just is more of the same old same old. blah blah blah .. my butt hurts since bernie didnt get the nomination so im sitting home to teach everyone a lesson.

    Jiujitsu is the art of using an opponent’s energy against them. You step aside, extend your foot as they charge at you, and then add a light thrust to their backside, flipping them onto the ground. You take what they were going to do anyway- run at you – and make that a fatal mistake.

    Donald Trump has taken what the GOP base was going to do anyway – white nationalism, paradoxically demand isolationism and imperialism at the same time, appeal to aesthetic troop support (yellow ribbons, flags, Rolling Thunder, POW MIA flags) while attacking anyone who actually was a POW (John McCain) since they have messy objections to things like torture, praise celebrities like Caitlyn Jenner while undermining the trans community they supposedly represent, etc- and used it to hijack the party nomination, only to announce that he’s broke now (ha ha) and now wants to buddy up with the only country capable of alienating voters on both Left and Right (North Korea).

    If it was anybody else, the GOP would be screaming whoever was recommended was a Manchurian candidate.

    So, Putin and Un endorse trump, as do the KKK and the Nazis
