Best speech ever by an orange baffoon. Four score and seven years from now, schoolkids will be asked to recite it.

(CNN)North Korea's foreign minister has delivered a scornful response to US President Donald Trump's threat to destroy the hermit kingdom, likening it to the sound of "a dog barking."

Ri Yong Ho, who is in the US for the United Nations General Assembly, said he "felt sorry" for the President's advisers after a fiery speech to the UN on Tuesday.
In his debut address to world leaders, Trump vowed to "totally destroy" North Korea if the US was forced to defend its allies.
Referring North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by a nickname he first used in in a tweet Sunday, Trump said: "Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."

Ri, in his country's first response to Trump's speech, was derisive. "If he was thinking he could scare us with the sound of a dog barking, that's really a dog dream," Ri told reporters outside his hotel in New York. In Korean, a dog dream is one that is absurd and makes little sense.

^^ You know, when North Korea sounds like the adult in the room, you know you're in big trouble.

Just driving by for the first time in a long time, and probably a long time to come. Surprised at the lack of politard threads, in fact this seems to be the only (political) turd in the punchbowl at least on the front page at the moment. Wow, a couple of climbing related threads the on the front page? What changed?

Not sure who old Kim was referring to here. It's ambiguous.

North Korean leader responds: I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire'

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson considered resigning over the summer and also referred to the president as a 'moron,' according to a new NBC exclusive report

Tillerson should stay on as the industrial part of the junta that I must confess I am thankful are in place to hopefully ensure donald and his sycophants don't start a nuclear war over an insult.

If you were talking about Mattis, I would agree. But tillerson by most measures has been a particularly bad Secretary of State, even taking into account limits places by his boss (trump apparently doesnít respect or listen to him anyway). Heís advocated downsizing the department despite rare bipartisan agreement this is a bad idea, civil servants are reportedly demoralized, and he has been particularly secretive.


The case for dumping him (or resigning):

They should try getting a real job.

Instead of ranting about Trump all the time Americans should educate themselves away from the brainwashed mainstream media, including the alt right and alt left crap.

Listening to that daily horseh!t coming out of that st00pid čŠnkl00n herd will drive America into the sewer and slowly kill it as it is doing so.

Once past that daily čŠnkl00n horsesh!t America will quickly get rid of Trump and all the rest of these useless tools that are killing this country.

There WILL, then be a real draining of "The Swamp" ......

Why, because it doesn't jive with yer world view?
With a relative who is a fully fledged ambassador I
think I have a credible understanding of how the
State Dept works. But I realize I'm not entitled to
an opinion that doesn't resonate here in the echo

Itís just f*#king...dumb. You really need an explanation? (It donít have nothin to do with echo chamber either.)

Iíll throw in that itís gratuitously mean, too.

There. Mean and f*#king dumb. Good work.

Sort of like the patient you are trying to treat, that rejects what you are telling them, because they have a relative "who is a fully fledged physician", so they know more about medicine than anyone giving them advice.

Also your circular logic goes like this: You have access to a "fully fledged Ambassador", and because of that, you know that State Dept employees are all a bunch of tax wasters who don't do an honest days work. Of course, the only person who you can personally observe in the role is your relative, meaning that he/she is a massive tax waster, who doesn't do an honest day's work.

Quite a credible source for your evaluation of ALL employees of the State Dept? Quite a job of undercutting your own family......

Reilly, maybe its not an echo chamber so much as a typing distortion field which allowed your meaner spirited impulses to leap off your fingers into your post. Perhaps what you meant to say was that you and your ambassadorial relative have seen examples of civil servants whom you feel don't work as hard nor with enough intellectual heft as they should, which in your opinion means that given the difficulty to fire them puts them in an enviable postion of "not having a real job". One assumes that you reckon those in the private sector are subject to the discipline of the marketplace and thus will do a better job? Pray enlighten us on how that worked with Equifax?
