    Language is between people, when Trump uses language which could illicit a response from the North Korean leader is dangerous and to defend it ignores the other person in the statement.

    So Sky News is OK using the term 'cunning linguist' on TV, but is unwilling to use the same term on the Internet.  So UK cable TV is less moral than what's on the Internet…!
