Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 22, 2017

Kim Jong-un's latest attack in an escalating war of words with Donald Trump sent people across the world to their dictionaries. The North Korean leader branded the President a "mentally deranged US dotard" in a scathing speech delivered personally through state media. Pyongyang is notorious for the bombastic, derogatory and often awkward English phrases it uses to lash out at enemies. The Oxford English Dictionary defines the word as "an old person, especially one who has become weak and senile."

Mentally deranged US dotard. Mentally deranged US dotard. Hmmph. I mean, yeah. Sure. Trump is arguably a mentally deranged US dotard. But that's not really the point. It's kind of beside the point when the issue is the thermonuclear annihilation of tens of millions of people. On the other hand, firing live missiles over the Japanese mainland though is the point. Behavior like that is not justified even if the President of the US is a deranged dotard.

NK sends unarmed missile OVER Japan to prove their missiles have the range. Meanwhile we actually nuked Japan and have 2000 missiles capable of hitting any target in the world with many times the power of anything NK has.

How many countries has NK dropped bombs on in the last 20 years?

Oh --------. Pretending that the US is about to start nuking other countries willy nilly is nonsense. And that is exactly what N. Korea is intimating.

I am amazed how liberals almost take the side of north korea in these treads that is mental derangement right there.

WTFIGO, I am a liberal. I am probably more of a liberal than most of these people you are calling liberals. Obviously I am not taking the side of North Korea. The reason I dislike your post is because obviously only a stupid person would take the side of North Korea in this argument. So what you are really trying to do is make the sideways argument that liberals are really just stupid. It is a dishonest way to try and make an inaccurate point.

North Korea does not have an exclusive claim on the opinion that trump is a ------.

Kim Jon Un also likes alcohol and women. Do you side with North Korea on those issues?

Kim is only speaking the truth. Trump is mentally challenged. He is a dotard.

How about just standing with your country for once regardless on how you feel about Trump Hell if the truth be told he has done some great things but the hatred has stopped every honest report. Is he perfect hell no but face it he is our president and NK is run by a mad man have you seen how he makes his people live? How many people have died there for the most stupid of reasons? I understand that the left feels kinship with communist countries but NK is evil, as evil as hitler or stalin and no comment should even show the least amount of support for Kim

No doubt about it folks, our President a mentally deranged US dotard. Kim, on the other hand, is a frightened mouse that roars, who probably uses his University to write everything in English for him.

Trump hasn't done anything great. Anything good he might have done is far outweighed by the massive damage he's already caused - to our state dept, our planet, our credibility, our reputation, and our youth.

Standing with your country means standing against trump.

trump and hitler are the exact same type of person.

It is only our laws that will prevent trump from becoming the next hitler or kim jong un. He would LOVE to have the unchecked power that they had.

please name the massive damage he has done this should be good also please read about Hitler I really don't think you have a clue what Hitler was if you did you would not compare anyone to him ever.

He appointed a climate change denier to run the EPA for starters.

Do you have kids? Then you should care.

Hitler was an egomaniac just like trump who rose to power by blaming economic suffering on immigrants and minorities, just like trump, and wanted a massive military buildup, just like trump.

Hitler was much more and Trump rose to power because people were sick of being told by liberals what they should believe and if they didn't believe as they do they were racist or bad or had low morals somehow also face it Hillary was an extremely bad choice

Also not everyone is on the tax the hell out of everything to save the earth bandwagon. Is the climate changing? Yes but I have seen nothing that has been proposed that will fix it. Humans will come up with a new energy source to replace fossil fuels and I believe its close but I don't believe for a minute that taxes or some sort of penalty to companies will do anything. I am also tired of hearing how everything we do is bad especially from the rich celebrities who burn 100x what the average man or woman does in their lifetime. so again I don't see massive damage that he has done please enlighten me.

If they weren't so busy being told what to believe by FOX, et al, then they wouldn't have had to face people in the real world telling them what they believe is objectively false.

Not sure why they got mad when liberals pointed out they have their heads in the sand, but here are and they are defending the position that having your head in the sand to spite "--------" is the way to go.

It'd be comical if liberal America didn't have to make up for conservatives' social and economic deficits all the time.

and i think if were a bit more versed in history then you'd know that hitler was widely praised in many parts of the world...prior to '39. check out what henry ford and charles lindberg had to say or the huge nazi rallies in new york city and los angeles. trump has only held the reins for a few months and we're talking nuclear 1st strike. try not to be a good little german "just following orders". like i've said before, in an historical context, kims' actions are much more understandable given his culture than trumps' attitude toward the citizens of america. trump is a greedy and kinda' stupid individual who the entire world is waiting to see what ignorant and provocative move he will make next

and while trump does his best mussolini imitation, posturing as a tough guy on the world stage russia and china are sitting back just praying that trump will succumb to his own rhetoric and make what would almost assuredly be a major, major mistake.

We have one. The sun. But people like you elect fossil fuel puppets who prevent that from happening.

Meanwhile china is going full speed on solar so they'll make the money from it instead of us. Good job.

On the other hand, firing live missiles over the Japanese mainland though is the point. Behavior like that is not justified even if the President of the US is a deranged dotard.

Then the world should get together and work together to help solve the problem before something terrible happens like our dotard threatening total destruction of North Korea in front of the whole world forcing Kim to act in order to save face... making the problem even worse.

Oops.

Too late.

Dotard J. Trump please remember that this is DOTARD and don't get me confused with my brother ------ or my sister LEOTARD or my cousins, MUSTARD and CUSTARD and the black sheep in the family DASTARD and the one no one speaks about (even though it's not his fault) BASTARD

If Trump was born between July 22 and August 22, would he be considered a Leotard?
