I assume that Adam or Cheryl will write something more substantive on this, but since you’ve all been mentioning it in the comments, two big pieces of news out of Hanoi.
- Dear Leader and Dear Leader [Individual 1] were, predictably, unable to come to an agreement because Trump, as usual, was unprepared and thought that he could bullshit a bullshitter. Can’t do that, so Trump cames home early, because golf isn’t going to play itself.
- In a press conference in Hanoi, Trump says he believes that Kim didn’t know about the torture of Otto Warmbier, a 22 year-old student who was arrested in NK and died here after being flown home in a coma. As usual, Trump comes off as a credulous fool, thinking that an autocrat like Kim wouldn’t be in control of every aspect of Warmbier’s custody.
That last story is just another example of how being a gross incompetent running an administration that is a rolling shit show actually helps Trump sometimes. We’d normally spend days or weeks talking about Warmbier and stupid remarks like that from another President. For Trump, it’s just another Thursday.
