The silence out of North Korea on the health condition of Kim Jong Un is telling, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who said he would be "shocked" if Kim is not dead.
"It's a closed society — I haven't heard anything directly — but I'll be shocked if he's not dead or in some incapacitated state, because you don't let rumors like this go forever or go unanswered in a closed society — which is really a cult, not a country — called North Korea," Sen. Graham told Fox News' "Justice" with Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night.
Rumors have ranged from Kim being comatose or dead to quarantining in a resort community.
"The long-suffering North Korean people will get some relief if he is dead," Graham, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told Pirro.
"President Trump is willing to do business with North Korea in a win-win fashion, so, if this guy is dead, I hope the guy who takes over will work with President Trump to make North Korea a better place for everybody," Graham added.
Reports say Kim needed a heart procedure that went awry recently.
