Washington Post reporter David Nakamura tweeted a hilarious short video Monday night of a North Korean aide rushing furiously to the side of ‘Dear Leader’ Kim as he arrived in Vietnam in advance of a planned meeting with President Trump with the quip: “get you a wingman like Kim Jong Un.”

The footage elicited howls on Twitter as some speculated the man exhibited similar qualities to Trump underlings such as Vice President Mike Pence. See a few responses below:
That guy is likely dead now…

Can Pence run that fast?

It’s not like you can lose track of Kim Jong Un very easily, the way he lumbers along

Is he still alive?

On the train ride home he will be called ballast.

Way too many amazing things going on here. The sign language guy is like the interpreter at Mandela's funeral. The middle male pattern baldness guy wet his pants and the tall Korean robot to the left is just now having the ketamine kick in. Kicks galore!

Bet protocol demanded Kim walk down the carpet by himself. The running to catch up kinda ruins the pomp a little. :)
