Yesterday there were reports around the world of President Trump’s “bombastic” and “unhinged” remarks threatening North Korea. Trump threatened North Korea with “Fire and fury” the likes of which the world has never seen.
As the entire world displays concern at the threatening tone of the President’s remarks, even sane, rational people recognize the risk of pitting one unhinged world leader against the other.
It’s not the first time threats of nuclear war have been made by North Korea.
It is however the first time that an American President has responded with an equally threatening tone.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attempted to defuse the incendiary tone of the President’s remarks. Tillerson said that Americans “should sleep well at night” regarding the situation with North Korea, according to NBC. Tillerson said he has “no concerns about this particular rhetoric over the last few days.” He explained that the President was simply using “aggressive language” to get the attention of Kim Jong Un.
The amazing thing is that Sarah Palin reported NOT on what the President said, but on the reassuring words of Rex Tillerson.
