SNL's Michael Che was savvy in using Donald Trump's most recent tweet to make a point that supersedes the tweet itself. He showed the man we elected as leader of the free world is not only childish but deficient in logic. He framed it perfectly.
Michael Che sure makes Trump seem petty & infantile.

The Korean Central News Agencies released a scathing attack on Donald Trump. They claimed he was belligerent and inciting nuclear war. They also used some unkind words they likely knew would push the child president's buttons and it did. They called him a warmonger, a lunatic and a dotard.
That Trump concentrated on the personal attack and not on the substance of the release is disconcerting. It shows he cannot understand the importance and seriousness of being the president of the United States.
In the included snippet, SNL's Michael Che makes Trump's twitter response seem petty & infantile. He did it in a sarcastic manner in which he spun Trump's tweet to point out the behavior in no uncertain terms. He then segued to show a president unable to think logically in his utterances on pressing issues like the recent Texas Massacre.
"Earlier this week North Korea issued a statement calling President Trump a lunatic old man," Michael Che said. "And a few hours ago Trump responded by tweeting, 'Why would Kim Jon Un insult me by calling me old. I would never call him short and fat.' Now, a lot of times Donald Trump goes way over the line with his tweets. But this time that was pretty damn funny. I mean look at how vain and catty he is. They were like, 'You lunatic old man.' And he was like, 'Old?' President miss thing also said that this week's shooting in Texas isn't a gun situation, but instead a mental health problem at the highest level. But why can't it be both? I mean why can't it be that because we have a mental health problem, we now have a gun situation. Just like how because my little cousin has a crack problem, my aunt now has a missing silverware situation."
Donald Trump continues to be a clear and present danger to the United States of America and the world. Unfortunately, the man we thought would have the ability to attenuate the president's impulses turned out to be his reflection.
