Trump Meets Kim Jong-Un: How It Transpired

A TV screen shows images of the U.S. President Donald Trump, left, and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a news program at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea, Tuesday, May 2, 2017. South Koreans are bewildered by President Donald Trump’s recent use of the term “smart cookie” to refer to current leader Kim Jong Un, and by Trump’s assertion that he’d be “honored” by a possible meeting.

So to take the heat off of the horrible, destructive tariff bill signed by President Trump today (Did we forget about that so quickly?), an announcement was made soon after that the pudgy little madman from North Korea, Kim Jong-un, is willing to sit down with the orange-hued mountebank.

The word is that Kim is willing to suspend his nation’s nuclear ambitions, in order to go through the process.

The immediate response falls to how much faith you have in Trump to not cause an international incident.

Those who see Trump as some kind of messiah are dancing around and praising Trump for bringing world peace.

Those who never ate paint chips or lived under power lines as a kid are considering Trump’s long, detailed history of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and completely offending somebody, in the process.

He’s a deal maker!

Yeah, but how many of those deals ended in either failed business ventures or somebody getting cheated?

Answer: A LOT.

Along those lines, Washington Post reporter, David Nakamura managed to pick up some details about how it all went down.

That would be the prudent path.

Yes, absolutely rely on his past history for making deals.

Is it too late to get Dennis Rodman to step in?
