Celebrities are reacting to Kim Jong-Un calling Donald Trump a “dotard” after the president threatened North Korea during his U.N. speech earlier this week. See stars’ reaction tweets below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea during his first major speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday. He sternly told the crowd, “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” In response to Trump’s threat, the North Korean leader inevitably retaliated on Thursday, calling the president a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the word “dotard” is used to describe an elderly person in a state of “decay.”

In a statement released by Kim Jong-Un, he said, “I’d like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world.” Kim added, “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire.” Trump later responded to his statement in a fiery tweet on Friday morning. He wrote, “Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!”

Of course, the unusual insult prompted a number of celebrities to poke fun at the term “dotard.” Arsenio Hall joked, “…yo momma’s a dotard!” Cher offered, “Kim Jung Un Says ‘He Could Explode Hydrogen Bomb Over Ocean 2 Show Deranged Dotard, He Will Pay Dearly.’ [Trump] May have pushed Rocket Man Too Far?!”

Meanwhile, Denis Leary said, “How the f*ck did I spend this much time on earth without having #dotard in my insult arsenal? Now I’m actually old enough to BE one.” And Andy Cohen tweeted, “#dotard though. Omg.” Gossip Cop will continue to update as more stars react to Kim Jong-Un calling Trump a “dotard.”
