PostIs Kim Jong-un Rational? What About Trump? (John Heelan, UK, 09/10/17 11:26 am)
Cameron Sawyer's comment (9 Sept) about the rationality of Kim Jong-Un is also applied in today's media to Donald Trump, suggesting that he should not be regarded as mentally unstable just because some people dislike him. (Sic!)
However, has anybody noticed that Kim's acolytes sport a similar hair-do as their Leader, and each carries a notebook and pen, presumably to capture his deathless words? Of course the Qing (Manchu) dynasty demanded the same thing of its subjects a few centuries previously (not the notebooks), who had to have hair on top of the scalp grown long and braided into a queue (or pigtail), while the front portion of the head was shaved. Is Kim modelling himself on the Manchus?
JE comments: I was waiting for the Kim-Trump comparison to arise. Will The Donald's sycophants start sporting the Trump 'Do, too?
