Donald Trump has been full of weird praise for North Korean president Kim Jong-un recently. Over the weekend, Trump said he would be “honored” to meet Kim, and called him a “smart cookie.”

On Monday, press secretary Sean Spicer backed his boss up, explaining that Kim was “still the head of state,” so there, I guess.

Of course, Trump’s apparent eagerness to hang out with Kim shouldn’t come as too much of a shock. Doughy, tyrannical narcissists who owe their entire career to a powerful father have to stick together, right?
