Kim Jong-un probably wants you to get vaccinated

When people look at Kim Jong Un they see a despot developing illegal nuclear weapons, assassinating family members and overseeing human rights violation on his own population. But there’s another side to the Supreme Leader of North Korea. A darker side. A side that I’m almost positive would tell you to get vaccinated.

 Obviously, it’s impossible to know for sure, since westerners have almost no access to any information about him or his nation of 25 million, but he just seems like he would.  For starters, he’s only 35 so he’s a freakin’ millennial.  Second, like most people who support vaccination, he’s super pro-government. Third he has a physics degree, so I assume he likes “science.”

 I just Googled him again and guess what he said in 2014: “Science and technology are a propellant for building a thriving country, and the happiness of the people and the future of the country hinge on their development.”  See what I mean?  He TOTALLY would tell you to get inoculated against preventable diseases, right?

 It’s easy to look at Kim and see the guy who’s friends with Dennis Rodman, loves playing computer games and admires the films of Jean Claude Van Damme and think “Huh, maybe he’s just a regular guy like me” but there’s something about him I don’t trust.  It might be the hairdo.  Or how he makes people call him “Dear” Leader. Whatever it is, I get a bad vibe, and when it comes to life-changing decisions like whether or not to get vaccinated, I trust my good, old-fashioned, made in the USA gut.
