The Internet Gives Newest Kim Jong Un Pic the Photoshop He Deserves

North Korea’s missile launch on Tuesday made headlines around the world,  its Hwasong-15 missile reportedly an ICBM capable of reaching the United States, according to North Korean media. To showcase the news as positive, North Korean media outlets released photos of Kim Jong Un celebrating the launch with officials cheering him on.
