Rocketman: I think I will launch a rocket towards you. And that would be the best one made ever.
Dotard: You are obviously a madman and don’t mind starving or killing people. You will be tested like never before.
Rocketman: We will consider this with seriousness. We will carry out the highest level of measure ever. You have insulted me in front of everyone, you will pay dearly. You are a rogue. You are a gangster who likes playing with fire.
Dotard: If I ever feel threatened. I will totally destroy you! You are a rocketman who seems to be headed on a suicide mission.
Rocketman: I think you are mentally deranged Dotard. Get ready with your rockets, for mine are ready to be launched.
That’s a conversation that reeks of High School nostalgia. But if you put this conversation into perspective, you know we are not talking about two school going boys, this is not a classroom setup. But is the drama that has been unfolding over the last few weeks. These excerpts have been taken from the real life-conversations (rather statements) of US President Donald Trump (as Dotard) and North-Korean President Kim Jong-Un (as Rocketman). It’s an exaggerated version of course but is not far from the way the two leaders have been dealing with their ‘rocket’ threats. What is even more immature of them, is that most of these threats were let off through twitter!
Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!

Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!

Russian Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov rightly said it resembled a “kindergarten fight between children.”What has got the people worried about this behavior, is that this was the first time that the leader of North Korea issued a direct statement against the US President. In his statement, he said that “Trump would pay dearly for his recent threat to destroy North Korea.”
He also called him “deranged” and “a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire.”
Kim Jong-Un went a step ahead and launched a new word to describe Trump, he called him “mentally deranged US dotard”. According to Oxford dictionary, the word dotard means, “An old person, especially one who has become weak or senile.”
The word was let out as a counter-attack to Trump's “Rocket man” and “Madman.”
Immediately after the world witnessed the war of words between the two leaders, in a show of strength, the US military flew bombers close to North Korea. North Korea need not show off its nuclear prowess as the country has conducted six nuclear explosions since 2016. And was slapped with stricter sanctions by the United Nations after its 6th nuclear test in September.Edging towards war, it is time Dotard and Rocketman graduate, before the rockets are launched for real.
