President Donald Trump said the leader of North Korea must be a “smart cookie.” (Don’t you just love that presidential language?)
A smart cookie, therefore, must be a Communist dictator of an economically deprived, war-mongering nation who rules through fear, force and oppression.
Remember how Trump praised Russian leader Vladimir Putin? Trump will probably continue this pattern with praise for the president of the Philippines when he visits Washington, says something flattering about Trump and then goes home to continue killing, it has been reported, tens of thousands of his countrymen.
It would appear that what we are stuck with, at least for the immediate future, is an ego-maniacal president with a very bad case of dictatorship envy.
Never miss a local story.
