A year and a half old post has resurfaced of the dictator inspecting a young girl's adorable pink backpack at what appears to be in one of his factories. In many of the shots he is surprisingly gleeful while rummaging through the empty bag. He is also oddly enamored as he caresses it.
Twitter wasted no time in making him the current most fantastic meme subject.
Watching some North Korean propaganda, Kim Jong Un is touring a backpack factory. Many different kinds and colors. He seems very impressed.— Patrick ❄️ (@pitnat) March 27, 2017
This photoshopping people into all sorts of situations has become a creative pastime. Much like Chris Christie on that now infamous beach, Kim Jong Un seems to be popping up everywhere with that bag.
Whether the photo-op was staged (most likely) or not, a happy Kim Jung Un...
Is a safer Kim Jung Un. And far less worrisome than some past reactions.
