    Kim Jong-un, that's who!

    In contrast to Trump, who likes to boast that he has handled Covid-19
    perfectly and urges Americans to 'blame China' for everything,
    Kim Jong-un has admitted in public that he's wrong.

    "North Korea: Kim Jong-un says economic plan a near-total failure at rare political meeting.
    Ruler begins second Workers’ party congress by admitting strategy fell short in ‘almost all areas’"

    "North Korea’s ruler, Kim Jong-un, has admitted that his economic
    policies have largely failed, and vowed to avoid a repeat of the
    “painful lessons” of the past at a rare meeting of the country’s ruling party.

    Kim told the congress of the Workers’ party that his five-year economic
    plan had failed to achieve its goals “in almost all areas to a great
    extent”, North Korean state media said on Wednesday."

    "Virus prevention measures did not appear to be in place at the congress,
    only the eighth in the country’s history. No one among the 4,750 delegates
    and 2,000 spectators appeared to be wearing masks or socially distancing."

    Being willing to concede error is the first step toward learning from it.

    This would seem to be a step in the right direction. Let us hope Kim Jong-un follows it up with a few more.

    Regarding Donald Trump, a small army of Federal and State law enforcement folks want to have with him once he leaves office regarding fraud, income tax evasion, election violations and other misdeeds. I'll be thankful when he's tucked away in prison where he richly deserves to be.

    Hey, that was MY line🙂 Richly deserved to be in prison.
    I wonder what level of criminality would block him from holding office again?

    Misdemeanor? I assume felony would stop that from happening.
