Kim Jong-Un announced at a news conference that North Korea would be sending a man to the sun within ten years!
A reporter said - "But the sun is too hot. How can your man land on the sun?”
There was a stunned silence, because nobody knew how to react.
Kim Jong-Un quietly answered "We will land at night”.
The gathering and everyone in North Korea watching on television broke into thunderous applause.
Back in Washington, Nancy Pelosi and her entourage were watching the news conference.
When Pelosi heard what Kim said, she sneered - "What an idiot! Everybody knows there’s no sun at night.”
Her office and everyone working in the DNC broke into thunderous applause.
