Where's Kim?





  • He's maintaining social distancing. Bet he had all these guys shot. They aren't.



  • Is he ill? Staying out of the public eye due to CV-19?



  • Little bastard would be a dead duck if he caught it.



  • Major shake up and consolidation of power is likely behind his lack of appearance.



  • Hmm....

    Obesity may be one of the most important predictors of severe coronavirus illness, new studies say. It is an alarming finding for the United States, which has one of the highest obesity rates in the world.

    Although people with obesity frequently have other medical problems, the new studies point to the condition in and of itself as the most significant risk factor, after only older age, for being hospitalized with COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus. Young adults with obesity appear to be at particular risk, studies show.

    The research is preliminary, but it buttresses anecdotal reports from doctors who say they have been struck by how many seriously ill younger patients of theirs are obese but are otherwise healthy.



  • Yes, whether it's COVID-19 or not, if he's not out and about, there's something very wrong, such as illness. That there are no explanations given makes it look even more likely that he's very ill.



  • Be a damn shame if something happened to the little creep.

    North Korea’s leader is facing a health crisis, according to multiple reports.
    Kim Jong Un is in “grave danger” after undergoing surgery, a U.S. official told CNN Monday evening.
    The dictator reportedly underwent a cardiovascular procedure earlier this month and was receiving treatment, according to a Reuters report earlier on Monday.
    Questions about Kim’s health started on April 15, when he failed to appear for celebrations of the birthday of his grandfather, Kim Il Sung, CNN reported.



  • That sounds a lot like he got Covid-19. Hypothetically, it would be easy peasy for somebody to give it to him deliberately. Of course, everybody loves him, so that would never happen.



  • Kim's surgeon:

    sweat



  • It’s hard to say. We’ve seen leaders go quickly and we’ve seen leaders live through many death and near death rumors.

    I would give greater than 50/50 but how much would be spit balling.



  • We should be so lucky. But I suspect there is only so long a regime like that can last in today's world.

    My understanding is that his sister is next in line for succession. I'll hazard a guess that she's no better.

    Everything that i have seen, read, and heard, she is not. LOL

    I have asked some people what they have heard, but even in normal times, information is hard to get. Now, embassy row in Pyongyang is locked down also, so any limited movement foreigners had before is gone.



  • If he dies, what do you suppose will become the official narrative? It has to be a story that makes him and the family look completely powerful and in charge, and perhaps endears Kim and the family to the populace.

    Maybe a sudden and tragic horse riding accident while he was racing to save a child in danger? Nah. Not spectacular enough.

    Maybe they'll try to blame his death on their most hated political opponents or another hated nation. He might be able to achieve martyrdom if told well. That sounds more likely.



  • Kim died trying to take down TNCR.



  • @brenda

    I think that they will be "mostly" truthful. When his father and grandfather died, the official story seems to be following what actually happened.

    But, you are right in that there will be "spin" to it. His body was weakened because of the 28 hour days he did to help the people of DPRK, etc etc

    She's definitely better looking. If she took power, it might be excruciatingly embarrassing watching certain other world leaders (who shall rename nameless) attempting to complement her on her looks.
