According to the state-run media, Kim Jong-un has climbed North Korea’s highest peak, Mount Paektu. Reports say the leader summited the 9,022 foot peak alongside hundreds of fighter pilots and party officials.
“Climbing Mount Paektu provides precious mental pabulum more powerful than any kind of nuclear weapon,” Jong-un said to the troops, according to a Rodung newspaper.
(“pabulum” = “bland or insipid intellectual matter, entertainment)
The peak of the volcanic mountain, which lies on the border with China, is considered a sacred place in Korean folklore.
His late father, Kim Jong-il, is said (by the state) to have been born on the mountain. Many historians say he was actually born in Russia.
This is just one of many lofty claims regarding the Kim family. For example, Jong-il reportedly scored 11 holes-in-one the first time he played golf. And that he could control the weather with his mood.
Or how Kim Jong-un learned to drive at age 3.
North Korean government is focusing on their development of nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, two-thirds of North Koreans are unsure of where their next meal will come from, according to the UN.
The “supreme leader” uses massive amounts of government money for personal entertainment while his country starves.
Clearly, the plump Jong-un has no issues feeding himself.
