Writing assignment for everybody saying "Not my president,"
Tell me in 2-5 complete sentences what the world's most perfect leader would have said instead.
If you can't handle the assignment, you flunk this thread.
One that doesn't threaten nuclear apocalypse every time he opens his mouth on the topic of North Korea.
Perhaps something along the lines of:
'We recognise North Korea feels the presence of American military assets along their border is a clear and present danger to their continued existence. In order to de-escalate the situation we propose creating a demilitarized corridor, and both sides will pull back their forces.'

On topic: i found it amusing. But i was thinking more of the Shatner version of the song than the Elton John version. LOL
Little less on topic: if you are outraged about how Trump said what he said versus what he actually said, you are doing this whole thing wrong. There are no points for style, only for fact.

Nobody wants innocents to die. But, nobody wants a crazy little Rocket Man to build a nuclear arsenal either to be at his disposal and whim. This is one of those real conundrums. Do the lives of the many outweigh the lives of the few? If the NK people were capable of overthrowing this p.o.s., would they? They have been so cowered, brainwashed, starved and tortured to the point they dare not even think of it.

i'm taking an informal poll... my gut feeling is that if you think 'rocket man' is a funny nickname, especially doubly funny to use in a speech to the UN, you are over 55 years of age. y/n?

hence acceptable collateral damage for the "good of the many more."
Is the collateral damage acceptable if it's your family ?
It's easy to talk about collateral damage being acceptable when you are safe from becoming it.
