Kim Jong-un Calls Trump a ‘Dotard’ and Twitter Scrambles for a Dictionary

2 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s “Rocket Man” v. “Dotard” in what might be the only petty insult contest backed by nuclear missiles. Days after Donald Trump gave a speech to the United Nations in which he deployed a new nickname for its dictator Kim Jong-un, the “Rocket Man” himself has replied with some choice disses of his own. In an official statement — no really — Kim calls Trump a “mentally deranged” “dotard” who will “pay dearly.” A dotard, by the way, is “a person, especially an old person, exhibiting a decline in mental faculties” according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

The semi-heated back-and-forth began when Teigen told her 7.5 million Twitter followers that she dodged a lifetime of regret when she opted not to get a Kermit tattoo when she was younger.
