Donald Trump’s bizarre relationship with Chairman Kim Jong-un of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has been raising eyebrows around the world as the leaders return home from their unsuccessful summit in Vietnam.
President Trump seemingly cannot help but fawn over dictators and authoritarian despots, obviously jealous of the power and respect they command and the fear they inspire.
That much was obvious over the weekend, as Trump praised their “special relationship” and complained about how he didn’t get the same respect that Kim does. “He’s the head of a country, and I mean he’s the strong head. Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.”

A FOX News guest remarked that it was an “almost a father-son” relationship and then bent over backward in an absurd, effusive effort to glorify the president’s bowing and scraping before a dictator.
“It’s great! said Gen. Jack Keane. “I actually think it has something to do with him being around President Trump. He’s very casual, informal with the media. He responds to questions continuously. He wears his thoughts on his sleeve…I suspect he’s had an impact on this guy…It’s almost like a father-son relationship that’s expressed there.”
The remark will certainly be a knife in the heart of one Donald Trump Jr., for as Atlantic contributing editor Jeet Heer snarkily remarked, “the President has never spoken of his sons with the warmth and affection he reserves for Kim Jong-un.”
This is an absurd claim. Trump has never spoken of his sons with the warmth and affection he reserves for Kim Jong Un. https://t.co/P20q0RiSzj

President Trump has time and time again gone out of his way to avoid making it appear that he loves any of his children, despite Don Jr.’s frequent and very obvious attempts to solicit praise or attention of any kind from the notoriously neglectful Trump.
It’s sure to be depressing for Jr. to hear that he has yet another rival in the Trump family’s game of emotion chess, but given how his quest for daddy’s love has driven him to ape his father and take every disgustingly racist thing his father says to the next level, it’s hard to feel sorry for him.
