Speaking of President Trump's "Rocketman" taunt -- which has actually triggered liberals into defending the nuke-wielding madman Kim Jong Un.

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said on Good Morning America today that the international community has joined the president in referring to the North Korean dictator as, "Rocketman."

When asked by host George Stephanopoulos if she thought it was "appropriate" for the president "to use a term like Rocketman to talk about the leader of another country," Haley smiled broadly.

"Well , I tell you, George, it worked," Haley replied. "I was talking to a president of an African country yesterday and he actually cited 'Rocket Man' back to me, so I will tell you that, look, this is a way of getting people to talk about him, but every international community now is referring to him as 'Rocket Man,'" Haley added.

The UN ambassador also said that "the international community actually very much appreciated the blunt, honest approach that the president took on North Korea as well as Iran."

These never get old.

Lefties continue to celebrate Hillary Clinton's meaningless participation trophy victories over President Trump. The latest: GRANNY IS SELLING MORE BOOKS!

From the progressive site Shareblue:

Hillary Clinton’s new book is shaping up to be publishing blockbuster, with news that the recently released “What Happened” sold more than 300,00 copies its first week in stores.

That’s the best first-week sales performance in five years for any non-fiction hardcover book, according to NPD BookScan, which tabulates the publishing data.

The book also set a Simon & Schuster company record for weekly digital audio sales, according to the Associated Press. “What Happened” sold more e-book editions in a single week than any nonfiction release from the publisher since Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs in 2011.

How big of a hit is “What Happened”? Its first-week sales tally of 300,000 copies surpasses the total of number of copies sold for Donald Trump’s 2015 release, “Crippled America,” which has sold 247,000 copies.

She's received blanket media coverage that began the week before her book tour even started (C-SPAN and Stephen Colbert's show already this week, and it's only Wednesday). If this book weren't flying off of the shelves with the relentless publicity even I might feel bad for her.

Honestly, watching the left "celebrate" these Hillary moments is beginning to be less fun.

But it's still fun.

I know this is Stephen Green's thing, but I've got a shot and chaser today, too.

Okay, here we go:

Ok, not really, but the juxtaposition...
