Oh yeah?

With our interim President’s credibility now several layers lower than basement linoleum ever since his campaign and first day of office, we pause to wonder just what his recent menacing threat to North Korea actually meant to North Korea and the rest of the world.

The tit-for-tat dialogue and posturing by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump reminds us of the old school-yard boast, “My dad can beat up your dad.” Only, these two are playing with fire, world stability, and the lives of millions.

However, judging on Trump’s past vows and promises that just never seem to come to fruition always due to somebody else’s fault, his recent threat to North Korea about “fire and fury like the world has never seen” rings as hollow as a Barnum & Bailey barker touting the space aliens inside his tent.

To get elected, Trump pledged, among many things, to release his tax returns, build a wall between Mexico and the U.S. amd make Mexixo pay for it, immediately replace Obamacare with a health care package “everyone will simply love,” end terrorism, make hard, fast cabinet appointments of experts in for the long haul, and jail Hillary Clinton.

And while all we get are swinging doors at the White House and lit fire after lit fire to deflect progress on the Russian probe and any other “anti-Trump” situation that comes down the pike, we’re still waiting.

We all know, two wrongs do not make a right.

And as they prove every day, Donald Trump and Kim Jung-un are two of the wrongest wrongs on this planet and it’s time for them both to go.
