The Right-Cheek Ass Clown for August, 2017

Ah, yes, Dear Readers, a new month brings new opportunities to recognize supreme achievements in ass clownery. And so it is that I've had to sit down, do extensive research, employ sophisticated algorithms, and then - like our esteemed Tweeter-in-Chief - make a decision informed only by my gut and my conviction that I know a whole lot more than everybody else*.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Readers, as we enter the new month I, have decided to present yet another dual award for

The Right-Cheek Ass Clown for August, 2017

and the award goes to

Kim Jong-Un
Donald J. Trump

I would think that this period's award is a no-brainer: two individuals with outsized egos, both of whom revel in the use of bombastic and threatening language, and share an utter unwillingness to back down from painting themselves into corners in which tens of thousands of lives are at stake. What more can I say? Kim's motivation is obvious - he wants to survive, realizes that his very existence is at stake, and thus sees no benefit in negotiation or in giving up the only thing that offers him the ultimate protection. Trump's motivation is equally obvious - he desperately wants to prove he's a tough, strong leader despite his demonstrated incompetence.

The Right-Cheek Ass Clowns for August, 2017, are North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un and US leader Donald J. Trump. Let's hope some adults find their way into the room**.

Have a good day. Come back tomorrow for Cartoon Saturday - more thoughts then.

Two ass clowns that scare me to the depths! They managed to ratchet things up to a crisis mode.

The two of them can make a volatile mixture.

You pick well, as always. Both deserve it.

Have you seen the image of them with switched haircuts? Very funny!
