Rocket Man Versus Dotard

On the one hand,

Trump and Kim are exchanging insults.

Adolescent Trump calls Kim, “Rocket Man.”

Adolescent Kim calls Trump a “dotard.”

Both are flexing their nuclear arms.

On the one hand,

there is a new treaty to ban nuclear weapons

adopted by 122 countries without nuclear weapons,

boycotted by all the countries with nuclear weapons.

On the one hand,

There is a perfectly good agreement to keep Iran

from developing nuclear weapons.

Trump is trying to scuttle the agreement.

What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Who knows?

There is little to clap about.

Trump and Kim are exchanging insults.
