Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (and daddy of Trump’s press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders) targeted both Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in a single tweet on Thursday.
First, you’ll need to translate his tweet. In Huckabee-speak, “NOKO” is short for North Korea, and “Lil Kim” is code for Kim Jong-un, the country’s leader:
@POTUS has dispatched Maxine Waters to NOKO to talk to Lil Kim. After 1/2 hour with her he will drink whatever he gave to his 1/2 brother.

According to The Hill, Huckabee is referring to the poisoning of Kim’s half-brother, Kim Jong-nam. South Korea’s spy agency said in February it believes Kim Jong-un ordered the killing.
So the former presidential candidate and Christian pastor actually suggested that sending Waters to North Korea would make Kim want to kill himself.
The comments come amid escalating rhetoric between Pyongyang and Washington. Trump said Tuesday that continued North Korean threats would be met with “fire and fury,” and North Korea in turn threatened to strike the US territory of Guam.
Waters is a frequent critic of the administration. Last week in an interview with syndicated radio show “The Breakfast Club,” Waters was asked if she believes Trump is the worst president in US history. She replied:
The worst I’ve ever seen, the worst I’ve ever experienced, yes I do. I really do, because I think he believes in nothing. I think that he cares about nothing. I think that he’s capable of doing outrageous things.
Earlier in the interview, Waters said she believes Trump should be impeached, and a week earlier on MSNBC, Waters called Trump “the most deplorable person” she has ever met.
