Everyone's getting treated like a cheap plastic hate doll.

I think both Trump and Kim are laboring under the delusion that if they're just good enough bros to each other, one day they'll just be able to sit down and be like, "Hey bro?  Come on, bro.  Seriously, bro."  And the other one will be like "Really, bro? Ok, Bro.  I feel ya, bro."  And then the problem will be solved.

Meaningless. They serve their purpose a distraction.

Jesus, Fox News would farking explode if Obama saluted a general from any other nation, let alone hostile to the US.
 
2019-04-15 11:10:55 AM  
I'd bet that Trump is so interested because Kim brings 12y/o Korean girls to the table for him.
 
2019-04-15 11:13:34 AM  
He's not giving up on that Nobel Peace Prize. Going to be tough to overcome the whole "taking children away from desperate parents and locking them in cages" thing, though.
 
2019-04-15 11:14:05 AM  
Trump, "Hey Kim, lemmie sleep here until that whole Mueller hoax blows over. I'll make a great movie star"

What, you forget that time the 'apologizer in chief' had the temerity to BOW to someone? They had farking kittens for a month.

At this point, instead of minting more coins for this Fiasco they should just use those little fake chocolate ones that you get it Easter time and stamp their faces on it

This is why other Presidents kept NK at arm's length.

And now we have an idiot in office who doesn't even know he's getting played the 3rd time around.
 
2019-04-15 11:16:37 AM  
You know what I would like to see in a president? A refusal to even humor the idea of meeting with North Korea. We know what to expect from these meetings. Stop playing their game.
 
2019-04-15 11:16:39 AM  
We're all confident that the next meeting will be every bit as productive as the first two.
 
2019-04-15 11:17:59 AM  
We'd get another summit coin, that's not meaningless! lol
 
2019-04-15 11:21:15 AM  
Ah fiscal conservatism. Hundreds of millions of dollars to Trump can leave early legitimize a dictator and then turn tail and run. Of course once back in the US crow about his biggliest win ever.
 
2019-04-15 11:24:50 AM  
Who are you kidding, subs? Donny wants that Dictator wiener.

/ get nothing out of it, indeed
 
2019-04-15 11:25:16 AM  
Kim will definitely let Trump kick the football this time...

Nuuu: I think both Trump and Kim are laboring under the delusion that if they're just good enough bros to each other, one day they'll just be able to sit down and be like, "Hey bro? Come on, bro. Seriously, bro." And the other one will be like "Really, bro? Ok, Bro. I feel ya, bro." And then the problem will be solved.


Kim just wants the face time. Every time the American president flies across the planet to sit down with him, he gains legitimacy. Every time we have one of these talks, Kim wins a little and we get nothing.

And this time it will work damnit! Unlike most summits where ground work is laid months in advace and the summit is pretty much signing papers and some chit chat. But sure lets have Trump wing it again with his BFF Kim, they can both cheat at a round of golf and negotiate a Trump property in NK.

That might play into it a little.  But Kim has to know that it's only really buying him legitimacy with his own people.  Even China has a pretty realistic understanding of what kind of legitimacy meeting with Trump confers.  No foreign power is looking at this like, "Oh, the Trump is sitting down with them like they're a real international power.  We've got to take North Korea seriously now!"

And within North Korea, once he got the first meeting, the mission was accomplished.  It maybe matters a little that the dialogue continues, but it's certainly not essential to his rule.

There has to be another level to Kim's continued willingness to meet with Trump.  And I think that next level is that Kim & Trump both believe that given their "amazing relationship" they'll eventually be able to bro it out.  Now that includes the part where both of them think they can manipulate the other into making a bad deal by leveraging the bro code.  But it remains the case that they see the path to peace through bro'ing it up.

Also, in order to make actual progress with North Korea, the people we should be talking to are in China.

Incredible statement from one of the premier homophobes on Earth.

Meaningless? Best Korea has fond each to be successful enough.

I think the other level is that each of them thinks that the other is a chump... and they're both right. The only question is which one is the bigger chump, and I think it's Trump. Trump giving up sanctions is way more likely than Kim giving up nukes, and Kim knows it.

The purpose of the third summit will be to determine whether a fourth summit is needed.

And everyone will praise Trump's leadership and inspiration for giving off the appearance of accomplishment without really accomplishing anything.

The term is "Jusie" (sp?) Subby.

There's no way I'm googling that on my phone.
 
2019-04-15 01:12:23 PM  
Has Trump picked out a present yet for the next meeting?
 
2019-04-15 01:47:37 PM  
After a round of golf in which both Glorious Leaders score 18 consecutive holes in one, Trump will trade all of America's military assets in South Korea for some magic beans that Kim's Grandpa got from a unicorn.
In unrelated news, Ivanka's clothing line is now manufactured in Pyongyang.

Its a south korean thing.  Jucee maybe?  Sells sex in exchange for how many shots of the signature south Korean alcohol you buy.

I heard of them in the air force but heard about the secondary part from an expert in human and sex trafficking.

I think it would be far more interesting if Ivanka was to go and meet with Kims sister
