Katy Tur Asks If It’s OK to Make Fun of Kim Jong-Un

Wouldn’t want to hurt his feelings, would we?

MSNBC host Katy Tur asked her guests on Tuesday if it was appropriate for President Trump to mock North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un after Trump assigned Kim the nickname ‘Rocket Man’ at a speech to the UN.

“Is it a good idea to personally name-call, call somebody, make fun of them with a nickname, ‘Rocket Man,’ – somebody who is as unstable as [Kim’s] believed to be?” Tur asked.

Sue Mi Terry, a member of the Obama national security team, said that Trump’s mockery would force Kim to either test more missiles or another nuclear device.
