Buzz:

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is reportedly in “grave danger” following surgery, CNN reported on Monday evening, citing an anonymous U.S. official with direct knowledge of the situation.

There have been rumors of the dictator’s declining health in recent days, after he reportedly missed the country’s most important political holiday last week — the birthday celebration of Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-un’s grandfather and founder of the communist tyranny.

NBC’s Kathy Tur sparked further speculation after deleting a tweet citing two U.S. officials who purportedly claimed that the authoritarian is “brain dead.”

“North Korean leader Kim ing Un is brain dead, according to two US officials. He recently had cardiac surgery and slipped into a coma, according to one US current and one former US official,” she wrote in the now-deleted tweet

Remember, this is a borderline nuclear power and dangerously unstable dictatorship.

Crises and rumours of crises are breeding like jackrabbits. END

    According to the coin I just flipped, he’s still alive.

    Even if he’s alive, however, it will be interesting to see what happens if he is not well enough to appear in “public” fairly soon. Perhaps they will have to install his skeletal sister as maximum leader.

    Let the cobbler stick to his last.
    In any case, never use CNN as a source.
