Donald Trump’s ridiculous ongoing feud with Chairman Kim Jong-un of North Korea has been mounting for some time, and German Magazine Der Spiegel has called them out in the most perfect way.
This isn’t the first time the magazine has been in the news, they have successfully captured the spotlight before with some of their more daring covers.
In February, they Tweeted a photo of their cover that featured a loud and angry Donald Trump holding up the decapitated head of Lady Liberty with the words “America First.”

It drew heavy criticism from the right, and the even some on the left said they might have gone a little too far, but their point was clear: Trump’s isolationist views would be the death of America, and freedom itself.
What’s Happening Now:
Der Spiegel has brilliantly stirred the pot once more with their most recent cover, called “The Comparison.”
Donald Trump has tried to defend his bruised ego when he was called out by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by saying, “They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
This came after reports that North Korea had been successful in developing nuclear weapons, according to NBC News:
Trump’s remarks came just hours after reports that North Korea had developed a nuclear weapon small enough to fit on a missile — and the White House said Wednesday “the words were his own.”
“General Kelly and others on the NSC team were well aware of the tone of” the president’s statement before it was delivered,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday, stating that both “the tone and strength of the message were discussed beforehand.”
The president and his chief of staff have been in “constant contact” with members of the National Security team while on a “working vacation” in Bedminster, New Jersey, according to Deputy White House Press Secretary Lindsay Walters.
Constant contact while on vacation? I’m pretty sure the only contact that’s been constant in that time is Trump’s eyes being glued to Fox News while he strokes his own ego.
In the meantime, we’re treated to Der Spiegel’s view on the matter:

It’s an accurate portrayal since both countries are run by narcissistic idiots who are ruining their countries and forcing their people to suffer. They’re so concerned with their ego and how other people view them that they’d rather play chicken with nukes and the very lives of their people that to calm down and talk civilly.
Twitter had some great reactions, as well:
