When Supreme Leader Kim-Jong Un orders the North Korean state media to send President Obama a message we expect blustering, bluffing, and lots of nuclear weapon-related threats.
But apparently the state media has mastered the practice of mediumship, channeling the voice of dead president Abraham Lincoln in a strange letter published on DPRK Today website entitled "Advice From Lincoln To Obama".
The message begins “Hey, Obama, I know you have a lot on your mind these days … I’ve decided to give you a little advice after seeing you lost in thought before my portrait during a recent Easter Prayer Breakfast.”
Their (Abe's?) "advice" is related to Obama's efforts to rid the world of nuclear weapons, stating that it's "a mockery to the entire world" for the U.S. to keep their arsenal and make other countries get rid of theirs.
"Abe" goes on to praise Obama while criticizing "himself":
“Hey, Obama, it’s the 21st Century,” the letter says. “The tactic by past American presidents, including me, who deceived the people … is outdated. That doesn’t work now. The world doesn’t trust an America that doesn’t take responsibility for what it says.”
This unsolicited advice comes a few years after the state media called Obama a "monkey" and Senator John Kerry a "wolf with a hideous lantern jaw", so something tells me the Ghost of Abe Lincoln had nothing to do with this letter...
