Trump advisor, Kellyanne Conway, used the term ‘alternate facts’ when describing the brouhaha over the size of Trump’s inauguration crowd. I think this administration actually does inhabit an alternate reality. Before the inauguration, Trump did a bit of a Twitter rant aimed at North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and his country’s claim of having a missile that can reach the U.S. While anything Kim or the DPRK does is cause for concern, getting into an online pissing contest with the man is foolhardy, and not a wise way to make policy. Trump’s action shows just how much he does not know about the world – especially the Asian concept of face.On the other hand, these two are like two playground bullies. Neither of them is capable of backing down from a challenge, taunt, or insult.Oh, woe is us!
