He has to be the most paranoid leader in the world. North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has many strange demands that must be met by his entourage, but the latest report might be one of the most bizarre yet…
Fox News– North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s motorcade may not be as indestructible as Trump’s fleet of bombproof “Beast” limousines, but it reportedly offers one feature the U.S. president has to live without: a traveling toilet.
Washington Post reporter David Nakamura tweeted about the delivery of the North Korean dictator’s secret toilet to Singapore.

A defector who served on the North Korean Guard Command told The Washington Post that Kim brings a secret restroom everywhere he goes, mostly a security measure meant to keep foreign intelligence operatives from collecting any of his excrement in an attempt to determine the state of his health.
Other sources with knowledge of the procedure have previously told the Daily NK news outlet that regardless of whether his entourage is traveling by train, sedan or off-road vehicle, one of the vehicles always has a built-in toilet for Kim’s private use, Autoblog reports.
“There are multiple vehicles within the convoy so that people cannot tell which one he is in, and there is a separate car that acts as his restroom,” a source said.
Kim visited South Korea last week in a parade of similar armored Mercedes-Benz limousines, any one of which could have been the alleged comfort station. Analysts aren’t even sure where North Korea got the cars from, let alone how they are equipped, as U.N. sanctions prevent the North Korean government from buying them directly from the automaker.
Former U.S. Secret Service agent Dan Bongino told Fox News that he witnessed over 50 heads of state being transported during his time protecting presidents and never heard of something like a limousine lavatory.
“If true, it really speaks to the paranoia of the North Korean regime,” Bongino said.
Here are just a few examples of how the North Korean dictator has dealt with his extreme paranoia:
The Sun reports that since taking power in late 2011, Kim Jong Un has executed or purged a slew of high-level government officials in what the South Korean government has described as a “reign of terror”.
In December 2013 Kim has his own uncle Jang Song Thaek executed in a move that was seen as a high-profile warning to other officials.
Jang Song Thaek, 67, a high-ranking official, reportedly fell out of favor after advocating economic reform in the impoverished state. He is believed to have been executed by an anti-aircraft gun.
In April 2015, the defense minister Hyon Yong Chol angered the North Korean dictator when he fell asleep during a meeting.
The 66-year-old man was therefore sickeningly executed by anti-aircraft guns in front of hundreds of spectators at a military academy near Pyongyang.
In October 2014 10 members of the ruling Workers’ party were executed by a firing squad for watching South Korean TV soaps. The soaps are banned by Pyongyang but wildly popular on the North Korean black market.
He also reportedly had an official killed with a flamethrower.
Last year it was reported the Worker’s Party of Korea, which he controls, banned weddings and funerals in the capital Pyongyang during a party congress.
Free movement in and out of the capital was forbidden and state police stormed homes and set up checkpoints, according to Daily NK.
A source told the website: “They are creating a day-to-day atmosphere that is terrifying.”

In 2013 South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported that Kim’s home in Pyongyang is surrounded by a fleet of around 100 armored vehicles.
It was also reported that mobile phone signals were jammed at any public event he attended to stop the devices being used to detonate a bomb.
NK News also reported an underground passage to allow Kim Jong Un to escape in the event of an emergency or coup was being built in the mountainous Jagang Province.
A source said: “The tunnels are for the exclusive use of Kim Jong Un in the case of an emergency. “It’s a sign that Kim is hedging his bets against a potential war.”
The workers were reportedly transported to the site in trucks with blacked out windows and blindfolded until they reached the construction site.
He also is believed to have nuclear bunkers at every building he spends time in.
