The big question of the week is whether North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is resting somewhere comfortably after his surgery, or, if he’s in a vegetative state as some Japanese news media says:
Reports emerged earlier this week that Kim was gravely ill following heart surgery, although that has since been disputed. However, Japanese media now claims that Kim is in a vegetative state following a stent procedure.
Japanese magazine Shukan Gendai reported that Kim collapsed during a visit to a rural area in April. Kim reportedly required a stent procedure following the incident.
Here’s a video about the report:
More from Fox News:
Shukan Gendai subsequently detailed how the surgeon in charge of Kim’s operation was not used to dealing with obese patients and was too nervous during the operation, leading to delays that left Kim in a “vegetative state.”
The magazine cited an unnamed member of Kim’s medical team.
So listen, take this with a grain of salt. Reports out of North Korea are notoriously inaccurate, and often rumor passes for confirmed news when it shouldn’t.
However, if it were true, we can only imagine how much of an effect it would have on global politics, especially at a time when North Korea’s commie sponsor state China is under such intense scrutiny. Some reports say that Un’s sadistic sister would take over for him if he died, but any change in leadership could lead to turbulence in a country where the head of state is a religious figure as well..
