So long, shining city on the hill. Welcome, self-serving cretins of the swamp.

Speaking in a wood-paneled office aboard Air Force One, Baier put it to the US president that Kim was “a killer. He’s executing people.”

Trump replied by praising Kim as a “tough guy. 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, that’s one in 10,000 could do that.”

Trump went on: “So he’s a very smart guy, he’s a great negotiator and I think we understand each other.”

Baier, sounding taken aback by the president’s flippant response, pressed Trump on the issue: “But he’s still done some really bad things.”

To which Trump said: “Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things. I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done.”

O'Reilly pressed on, declaring to the president that “Putin is a killer.”

Unfazed, Trump didn't back away, but rather compared Putin's reputation for extrajudicial killings with the United States'.

“There are a lot of killers. We have a lot of killers,” Trump said. “Well, you think our country is so innocent?”

In a 2015 interview on “Morning Joe,” Trump was pressed on the same issue and gave a similar answer.

“He kills journalists that don't agree with him,” the show's host, Joe Scarborough, pointed out.

“Well, I think that our country does plenty of killing, too, Joe,” Trump said.

Two or three wrongs just make a right.

I find all this new found cautious optimism regarding Trump's efforts regarding NK amusing and self serving.  With all of the shit I've taken over Trump, this new found charity in the form of thinking that maybe Trump may actually have a plan that is working instead of he is unfit to have his fingers on the button just does not come off as sincere.

Let's be honest.  I know what all of you are really thinking.  This isn't about world peace.  Its really about Trump wanting to open up new resort hotels and golf courses.  He figures that he can buy his way in and give Kim a piece of the action in exchange for peace and exclusive rights to develop NK.  All those deserted beaches waiting for high rise towers and casinos.  And think of all the cheap slave labor available to build and staff the properties.

That's what y'all are really thinking, right ?

Trump Kim summit: Six odd moments from the day

The pens originally laid out for the signing of the documents were black and featured President Trump's signature in gold.


The pen bearing Trump's signature was inspected by a North Korean aide, but was later swapped for another

But at the last moment, Mr Kim's influential sister Kim Yo-jong switched the North Korean leader's pen for a ballpoint pen.

Security for the North Korean leader has been high throughout the trip, but it is unclear whether the pens were swapped for security or political reasons.

I still have my letter from from when I wrote the VP, using a Don Novello approach, telling him how much I was sorry for what he was going through.

The letter Trump sent to Kim Jong Un canceling the summit, annotated

Basically, Trump is canceling the summit because of the “tremendous anger and open hostility” North Korea displayed recently, to Pence and threatening to cancel the summit itself.

Here’s the background to all that:

  1. As Trump officials said they wanted North Korea to totally dismantle their nuclear capabilities, North Korea had appeared to waver about whether it was going to participate in the meeting with Trump.

  2. In response, Trump White House officials started comparing North Korea to Libya, a country that dismantled its nascent nuclear program. It’s an ominous one for North Korea: That same leader ended up dead less than a decade later after a civil war in which the U.S. got militarily involved.

  3. As North Korea escalated suggestions it might not participate in the summit, Trump officials doubled down. In a Fox News interview this week, Vice President Pence said North Korea would “end like the Libya model ended” if Kim backed out of the meeting with Trump. Asked if he was threatening Kim, Pence said: “I think it’s more of a fact.”

 
  1. In response, North Korea’s Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs said Pence’s comments were “stupid” and “ignorant” and called him a “political dummy.”

  2. Also this week, Trump threatened to back out of the summit if North Korea did not meet “certain conditions.” He did not elaborate on what those conditions were, reports The Post’s Anna Fifield.

  3. North Korea issued a statement in response saying it’s up to the United States to “meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown.”

  4. Now the summit is canceled, with Trump citing “tremendous anger and open hostility” on North Korea’s part.

"Repugnant" is a very fitting description of Bolton.  It could be a move on the part of NK to distance have Trump distance Bolton from the talks as that author Murphy speculated.

And they are right, I can't believe the Walrus is back in government. Un freekin' believable. You could not do any worse than the trifecta of Sessions, Guilani and Bolton. Three humongous strikes.
