Following Kim Jong-Un's televized response to Trump's UN speech, in which he called the US president a "mentally deranged dotard" and vowed to "tame the U.

Earlier today we reported that as part of the government's sentencing memorandum (published at the bottom), federal prosecutors asked that disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, and the man Hillary Clinton has quietly added to what has become a virtually infinite list of reasons why she lost the presidential election, be sentenced to about two years in prison for engaging in sexting with an underage, 15-year-old girl. Prosecutors filed paper in Manhattan Federal Court on Wednesday in advance of Weiner’s sentencing.
