Obviously my North Korean conspiracy theory on the summit fell through. Other than that I think it went pretty well, and by well I mean bad for the United States and the President.
I recall that certain people from certain demographics thought Obama was a traitor to bow to the Japanese emperor.
And now the leader of the free world is saluting the very same military government that put Otto Warmbier in coma.
It’s funny Trump has better things to say about Un than he does about his own countrymen. I ain’t never heard trump talk about an American (that isn’t a sycophant) the way he talks about Un.
“Un loves his people”
he was pressed by Fox News’s Bret Baier on Kim’s human rights record. Baier noted that Trump had praised Kim as “a very talented person” and had said they have good chemistry.
“He’s a tough guy,” Trump replied. “Hey, when you take over a country, tough country, with tough people, and you take it over from your father, I don’t care who you are, what you are, how much of an advantage you have. If you can do that at 27 years old, I mean that’s one in 10,000 that could do that. So he’s a very smart guy. He’s a great negotiator. But I think we understand each other.”
“But he’s still done some really bad things,” Baier said.
“Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things,” Trump said. “I mean, I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done.”
So a bow to the emperor of a ally nation is treason but speaking highly of a rouge nation’s human rights violating leader is Nobel peace prize.
Kim has out played Trump and a few months from now the real story will be told.
