Putin Complements Kim Jong Un

I've Been Thinking:
Russia's President Vladimir Putin complemented North Korea's Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un. He called Kim Jung competent and mature and added that Kim Jong was handling a complex global situation in a calm and mature manner.
This is a perfect Putin moment. What Russia's leader is really doing is complementing the North Korean leader on how he is handling Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America. It is also a direct attack against Trump.
Trump and Kim Jung have been flamboyantly bickering ever since Trump assumed the presidency. The exchange got so wild that there were those who thought it may lead to military, perhaps even nuclear, attacks or even war.
And in the end who is the calming force? In Putin's eyes the responsible, mature leader is Kim Jong Un of North Korea.
This is not just an attack on Trump, it is also a way of buttering up Kim Jong for something important in the very near future.
