Here's what Marco Rubio said during the debate on Tues. that upset me so,

There is a lunatic in North Korea with dozens of nuclear weapons and long-range rocket that can already hit the very place in which we stand tonight. The Chinese are rapidly expanding their military. They hack into our computers. They're building artificial islands in the South China Sea, the most important shipping lane in the world. A gangster in Moscow is not just threatening Europe, he's threatening to destroy and divide NATO. You have radical jihadists in dozens of countries across multiple continents. And they even recruit Americans using social media to try to attack us here at home. And now we have got this horrible deal with Iran where a radical Shia cleric with an apocalyptic vision of the future is also guaranteed to one day possess nuclear weapons and also a long-range rocket that can hit the United States.

Taking this mess sentence-by-sentence, Kim Jong Un, dictator of North Korea, may or may not be a lunatic. the rest of the sentence is pure fantasy: Kim does Not have "dozens" of nukes, nor a missile that can hit anything farther away than Japan. The burden of proof is on Sen Rubio.
