President Donald Trump’s latest blunder has the social media trolling him after he appeared to fat-shame North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, in a new viral video.
A video of the encounter was uploaded on Facebook, and social media made sure that POTUS’ comments go as viral as possible.
During their summit lunch, the US President told the photographers present there to take flattering shots. He said, “Getting a good picture, everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin and perfect.”
The camera then zoomed in just in time to capture Kim Jong-un’s reaction, who appeared to be less than amused by Trump’s comment.
Watch the video below:
Twitter users had the best time reacting to the viral video of the two world leaders. One user expressed how relatable it was to have such a reaction to a comment like Trumps’s, and how hurtful it can be.
Did I just relate to Kim Jong-Un?

Kim looks like he has been kicked in his Jong Uns.

Another user could not help but appreciate how apt the camera angles were, showing Kim’s reactions.
The camera angles are right on point.

Good God that zoom in on Kim's face. He's like, "What the hell am I doing with my life?".

Kim Jong Un has the face of a teenager who’s been pulled away from his PS4 and told he needs to spend some time with grandad.

Other users began to call the video a remake of the famous scene from the US hit TV series, The Office, where Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell, roasts his employees on their race, gender, or for being fat, in a comical way.
@MyNameIsTrevJag It does kinda remind me of Michael Scott!

This is not the first time the US President has mocked the North Korean leader. During their previous spat, Donald Trump called Kim Jong-un ‘short and fat’.
In November 2017, he tweeted, “Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!”
