Donald Trump gave Fox and Friends an interview this morning and early reports suggest it was something. Lies were told, of course. Example: Democrats are to blame for jerking children from parents at the border, not his policy. Also: Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to a crime, has been treated unfairly. Also this: Trump continued his warm (and scary) talk about the dictatorial ways of the leader of North Korea, aka Little Rocketman.

“Hey, he is the head of a country and I mean he is the strong head,” Trump said of Kim to Fox News’ Steve Doocy on Friday. “Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.”

When it comes to Trump, I think I’d prefer to take a knee.

On the other hand, if he succeeds in emulating Kim, that could be dangerous.

Kim once executed a high government official for slouching, perhaps dozing off at a cabinet meeting. Firing squad.s

These are not joking matters. You’ve seen the poll in which a majority of Republicans said they’d be OK with a delay i 2020 elections if proposed by Trump?
