Another Coveted Endorsement for Donald Trump: North Korea

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un rejected the notion of meeting with Donald Trump last week, but now the nation's official state-run newspaper has endorsed Donald Trump for president.

Why? Because President Trump might abandon South Korea and allow the North to consume the entire peninsula.

“The president that U.S. citizens must vote for is not that dull Hillary but Trump, who spoke of holding direct conversation with North Korea,” the editorial said.

The article, first reported by the website nknews.org, went on to praise the April foreign policy speech Trump gave in Washington, D.C., where he threatened to withdraw U.S. forces from South Korea if the government didn’t pay the United States for defense.

Who knew that the slogan ‘Yankee Go Home’ would come true like this?” the editorial quipped.

Yeah. Who knew?

Is this a problem for Republicans? Is it a problem for those who've endorsed or announced their support for him? Trump is in many ways the antithesis of the modern Republican party but they've all fallen in line with him anyway because nothing matters.

They say they're supporting Trump because Hillary Clinton can't be allowed to become president, but as far as we know Clinton has not floated the possibility of abandoning South Korea, leaving NATO, or allowing Putin's Russia to reclaim the Eastern Bloc.

We'd know if she had because the GOP and the entire political press would have a conniption.

    I can’t wait to hear Donald Trump tout his endorsement by “a leading newspaper, a very good, excellent newspaper, in Korea.”

    Y’all know it’s coming.

    Trump is in many ways the personification of the modern Republican party.

      I said in many ways, not all ways. As far as foreign policy is concerned, Trump embodies everything they’ve accused Democrats of for the past 20 years. They’ve nominated their caricature of a Democrat.

    Who knew Kim Jong Un was a member of the GOP?
