The following article, Trump Defends Biden After North Korea Labels Him ‘Rabid Dog’ Who Should Be ‘Beaten to Death’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
What’s this? President Trump is now coming to the defense of Joe Biden, presumably the man he’ll have to defeat to secure re-election to the White House next November? Yep. He did – if you can believe it. But he did it in a very Trump-like way.
Only POTUS can simultaneously have Biden’s back, put him down, and tell off North Korea in the same sentence. In a way, it was brilliant. Ultimately, though, Biden won’t exactly be thanking Trump for the “kind” words.
Just check out the tweets for yourself. Pretty funny.

Mr. Chairman, Joe Biden may be Sleepy and Very Slow, but he is not a “rabid dog.” He is actually somewhat better than that, but I am the only one who can get you where you have to be. You should act quickly, get the deal done. See you soon!

When you make the choice to be an isolationist nation, you do so at your own peril.
This precisely the sort of lesson that Kim Jong Un of North Korea is learning during his time atop of figurative throne in the Asian dictatorship. Like his father, and his father before him, Kim is keeping his foot squarely on the neck of the North Korean people, but doing so under harsh international sanctions.
Of course, these sanctions could and likely would have been eased had the dainty despot negotiated a deal with US President Donald Trump just weeks ago.
Exacerbating all of the issues that the figuratively imprisoned North Korean people face is a drought – the worst in decades – that has again brought a fear of famine to the hermit kingdom.
The state-run Korean Central News Agency said that only 2.1 inches of rain fell throughout the country in the first five months of this year, the lowest amount since the same period in 1982 when 2 inches of rain on average fell.
The current conditions, described by KCNA as “extreme drought“, are expected to continue at least until the end of May.
North Korean authorities have asked private citizens to seek out previously unknown sources of water – a desperate measure that belies the complete and utter ineptitude of the DPRK’s ruling class.
To put food on the dinner table, Kim Jong Un may need to come back to the negotiating table.
