President Trump Just Called Kim Jong Un 'Rocket Man' On Twitter

North Korea fired a second mid-range ballistic missile over Japan on Friday, just weeks after the nation reportedly conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date. In response, the U.S. and South Korean military staged bombing drills, while Russia and China began naval exercises.

Earlier in the week, the U.N. Security Council had imposed new sanctions on the country, capping fuel supply, and reportedly sending gas prices in the country soaring. Which provides context to President Donald Trump's tweet about the test, in which he calls Kim Jong Un, who some view as the biggest threat to the free world, the "Rocket Man."

President Donald Trump is, assumably, referencing the 1972 Elton John classic. Twitter was just as confused as we are, though.

Though Trump did seem to have some support. 

What an age we live in.
