North Korea slams Trump’s decision to pull out of Paris accord as ‘the height of egotism’

This is coming from the little man who has had his "enemies" executed by a firing squad armed with a four-barrel antiaircraft gun.

In a statement published Tuesday on Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) and attributed to a foreign ministry spokesman who wasn't named, the isolated country warned that “global warming is one of the gravest challenges humankind is facing today” and praised the Paris accord for its attempt to stop it.

Noting that the Trump administration had announced on June 1 that the U.S. would leave the landmark agreement, the unnamed official said that this was because of the president's “America First” policies and an ignorance “of the fact that the protection of the global environment is in their own interests.”

“This is the height of egotism and moral vacuum seeking only their own well-being at the cost of the entire planet,” the statement said.

Mr. President? When you're on Li'l Kim's bad side, you're doing something right.
