Dear Kim Jong-un, You've Got to Get Yourself a Snappy Uniform

Sometimes a little levity is needed --- even at the threat of nuclear war. Over the weekend, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un paraded his military in a show of force.

“If the USA is planning a military attack against us we will react with a nuclear pre-emptive strike by our own style and method,” Jong-un said.

The parade featured a failed missile launch and an unusually dressed leader.

"Kim Jong-un was wearing an actual suit like we would wear in the West," Co-host Pat Gray said Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Glenn offered a different description.

"No, it was like a Pavarotti jacket for thinner people," he said. "I mean, if you're going to be a dictator, you've got to get yourself a snappy uniform."

GLENN: Yeah. I know. I think anybody who has the military parades -- if you have -- this is a sign that you just need to be annihilated as a -- as a government: If you have military parades, big pictures of your leaders on the sides of buildings, if your troops march in goose step, I mean, that's like -- I mean, that's a sign that you're --

STU: Right.

PAT: The higher you goose step, the more evil you are.

GLENN: The more evil you are.

PAT: That's a good rule of thumb.

GLENN: I saw the parade over the weekend, and they're all goose-stepping. And I'm like, clearly evil. These people should all be wiped out.

PAT: Yeah. And then for the first time ever, that I've ever seen, Kim Jong-un was wearing an actual suit like we would wear in the West.

GLENN: No. No.

PAT: A tie and jacket. It was pretty close.

GLENN: No, it was like a Pavarotti jacket for thinner people.

(chuckling)

PAT: Yes. And that's not a good look for him.

GLENN: No, it's not. But his pants are like --

JEFFY: They're giant navy bell bottoms or something.

GLENN: They're not bell bottoms. If you look at them -- they're like the size of the waste at the top of the thigh all the way down.

JEFFY: All the way down. Yeah.

GLENN: It's bizarre. And everything on him looks like, you need a tailor. You don't have a tailor?

PAT: Well, he's got such a weird body shape that I think it's tough to fit it with clothes.

STU: Yeah, I think that's a good --

JEFFY: But he's the rural, right?

PAT: Yeah, I know.

GLENN: Who was it I heard the other day that said he's -- I think it was one of you guys that say he's kind of in between of, you know, being fat and giving up.

JEFFY: Yeah, yeah. Yeah.

PAT: He does.

STU: Well, given his life circumstances, right? Because like Jeffy, for example, might be a little overweight.

PAT: Overweight. Uh-huh.

STU: However, he's limited by his circumstances.

JEFFY: Well, and I'm athletically overweight, unlike Kim Jong-un.

STU: No.

PAT: Yeah, except for no.

STU: But he's limited by his circumstances in that we don't pay him a salary. He doesn't have any income.

PAT: Right. There's not much he can do.

STU: He's basically homeless.

GLENN: Whoa, whoa, whoa. This is the opposite. That's what makes you work out.

If you're Kim Jong-un and everybody has to say, oh, dear leader, you are smoking hot --

PAT: You are sexy.

GLENN: You are sexy. Then why work out?

STU: But this is my point. There's nothing in Kim Jong-un's life that would lead him to be in shape. Right?

GLENN: Oh, so you're saying he should be fatter?

STU: I think he should be fatter. Because why would you stop at -- what is he? What is he, Jeffy, 350?

JEFFY: No. He's only like 2 feet tall.

PAT: 5-8.

JEFFY: Probably 270.

PAT: Maybe 280.

JEFFY: Yeah, 280. He might --

GLENN: No, I don't think he's that heavy.

JEFFY: At one point when he had knee surgery and stuff, he probably pushed three.

PAT: And there's not a lot of cool things you can wear when you're built like that. Right? So that's why he does the Nehru jacket.

GLENN: What is the deal with the Nehru jacket? Seriously.

PAT: He looks like he's the fifth member of Herman's Hermits in the 1960s.

GLENN: What is the deal with the -- seriously, with the -- all the Chinese leaders wear that.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: It was never a good look. It was never a good look.

JEFFY: But you get your hair cut like that and that jacket, that's a good look.

GLENN: Your comrade jacket.

PAT: Hillary Clinton thinks it's a good look. She wears it all the time. She's the only Western person to wear the Herman's Hermits outfit.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: And why doesn't this guy wear the uniform? I mean, if you're going to be a dictator, you've got to get yourself a snappy uniform.

PAT: His dad did, right?

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: I think honestly -- because, again, I don't know what the uniform would look like on him. There's not a lot of military guys that are overweight.

JEFFY: Overweight.

GLENN: Göring.

STU: Yes. I said there's not a lot, not there wasn't one. There's not a lot. It's not common.

GLENN: Right.

STU: You can name him because he was fat.

GLENN: I mean, he was at trial for war crimes, they were looking and going, we can't hang this guy.

PAT: It's not going to hold him.

STU: No.

GLENN: How are we going to hang him? There's no way we can hang him. We've got to shoot this guy.

PAT: He's got the Jeffy problem.

GLENN: Yeah.
