In the often bizarre Twitter world of Donald Trump, today he provided a real doozy.
Trump took to Twitter to insult former Vice President Joe Biden, and praise North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
Acknowledging that North Korea fired short-range missiles earlier this month, Trump said that he — unlike his advisers — was not concerned about the development, praising the country’s totalitarian leader Kim Jong Un.
“North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me,” the president wrote.
Trump added that he has confidence in Kim Jong Un, praising the North Korean regime for insulting Biden.
Trump nicknamed the former vice president “Swampman,” and misspelled his name while accusing him of being a “low IQ individual.”
You just can’t make this stuff up:
Trump, who has questioned Biden’s intelligence on numerous occasions, apparently interpreted North Korea’s insult aimed at the Democratic presidential candidate as some sort of a signal.
Misspellings in Trump’s tweets are not unusual, but typically he is not questioning someone’s intelligence when they appear.
The internet was shocked, more than usual, both by the content of the tweet and by Trump violating the unwritten rule that domestic politics stay at the nation’s shores when the president travels overseas.
When you’re trying hard to portray somebody else as dumb but cannot even manage to spell their name correctly. https://t.co/PLYd5bFu5R

If there were any sane people left in this administration, they’d use the 25th Amendment and put the Fruitcake in Chief in a rubber room.

If I were advising Iranian Supreme Ali Khamenei, I would encourage him to write a letter along these lines “Dear Donald Trump, big-handed president! Congrats on the Mueller hoax investigation proving no collusion & no obstruction. May you defeat sleepy Joe Biden! etc” https://t.co/ZDqJt1pSps

There are 53 Republican Senators and 198 House Republicans. It’s simple: Ever single one of them should be denouncing this pathetic loser and his unpatriotic, unAmerican behavior. https://t.co/OsIKGG3v3q

All the typos and misspellings…are they on purpose? Why would they be on purpose? Is it a staffer messing with Donald? No matter what the reason, Putin wins and we all lose. Donald is an illegitimate president installed by Russia. https://t.co/WOz8KdPHVI

I have so much nostalgia for the years of my life where I had no idea who the hell Donald Trump even was. https://t.co/1Ufkfvxqwo

Trump — better pals with Kim Jong Un than Joe Biden.
I’m not sure that’s the campaign pitch he thinks it is. https://t.co/bvNpRtOs1P
