President Trump declared in a spur-of-the-moment interview with "Fox and Friends" Friday morning that he wants people to sit at attention for him like they do for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Kim stands accused of leading a murderous regime that starves its own people. But Mr. Trump has heaped praise on Kim since meeting with him in Singapore, saying repeatedly that the two have "good chemistry."
"Hey, he is the head of a country and I mean he is the strong head," Mr. Trump told Fox News' Steve Doocy on the White House lawn Friday. "Don't let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same."
Pressed by a reporter about those remarks moments later, Mr. Trump said he was "kidding."
"I'm kidding, you don't understand sarcasm," the president said.
The spur-of-the-moment White House lawn interview was, in the memory of those present, unprecedented.

When is CBS going to stop tearing down our country?
I heard Trump say this. He was obviously being sarcastic.
But as soon as he said it, I knew it was going to be a big story by the Fake News media.
CBS and MSM are upset that they can’t overwhelm Trump.
They believe he has some duty to cave to them.
Next gay ‘Rat president?
I’m drawing a blank on the journalist who said it (she’s good):
Trump’s supporters take him seriously but not literally.
The media take Trump literally but not seriously.
Hmm, sorry about that link from my clipboard from a previous post.
Trump the tyrant.
Feeding the fear.
People actually eating it.
Me too. Worst gaggle of screaming kids throwing a temper tantrum I have ever seen.
The media will bite on anything. He’s being sarcastic AND amusing.
Yes. He told them it was a joke.
I watched the interview with Fox and Trump was making a joke, smiling and laughing. The MSM make me want to throw something at the TV. Fake News, lying, corrupt, treasonous media. OMG
The president says a lot of off the wall things purposely because he knows that will set off the lefties and sure enough he does it again! Love it. The MSM will wet their collective pants all day long reporting that the president wants his staff to treat him like a king!
TRUMP should wear those funny
Looking “Commie” hats and
“Goose Step” out to his next Breifing.
My fellow Americans, I’m pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.
Oh, I can stop?
The dishonesty of CBS is on full display there. They know a lot of people will just read the headline of that story.
That was a great one by the Gipper!
How about Coulter’s “ We need to kill all the muslim men and convert their women and children to our religion.”? Talk about a pantie twister!
