President Donald Trump once again humiliated many of his own citizens on Tuesday when he referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" during a speech at the United Nations.
"Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his own nation," Trump said of the North Korean leader during his address before the UN General Assembly. During the speech, Trump also said that the United States might soon have no option other than to "totally destroy" North Korea.
Many internet users felt embarrassed by Trump's childish antics on the world stage, and they simply shook their heads in disbelief that the purported leader of the free world threw out grade school-style taunts during an address to the international community.

The infantile president can't admit a mistake so he defies advisors who told him to stop saying Rocket Man.— Lawrence O'Donnell (@Lawrence O'Donnell)1505831925.0
@thehill What are the odds that he keeps saying "Rocket Man" because he either can't remember or can't pronounce "Kim Jong-un"?— Disco Volante (@Disco Volante)1505832165.0
