Trump Knows How To Be A Hardass-- Although Not With Fascist Dictators


Though some White House imbecile told Trump that the Canadians burned down the White House, economically and strategically there is no country more important to the U.S. than Canada, nor closer to the U.S. in every conceivable way. Tuesday Toronto's biggest newspaper reported that the circus performer Putin saddled the U.S. with as "president" said in Singapore after his meeting with the savage and bloodthirsty North Korean dictator that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s assertion that Canada "will not be pushed around" will end up costing Canadians "a lot of money." And as always, money was very much of Señor Trumpanzee's mind-- money for himself. He referred to Trudeau, as "dishonest" and "weak." (If ever there was a case of projectionism!!!)

Trump can play hardball with our friends in Canada-- but not with the North Korean fascist. The NY Times reported that "People briefed on the meetings said American negotiators had found it difficult to make significant headway with the North Koreans, in part because the White House did not back them up in taking a hard line."

As for Korea... "They have great beaches. You see that whenever they're exploding their cannons into the ocean. I said boy look at the view. Wouldn't that make a great condo?" He told the press gaggle you could have the "best hotels in the world" on the beaches that North Korea uses for its artillery drills. He's talking about this guy:

Trump is more ignorant than an average junior high school student. Boldly not preparing for the summit was bizarre enough. It led to this:

And worse. But, of course, not for indispensible men Trump and Kim. Both authoritarian-minded lunatics wanted a summit, with all its spectacle that allowed them to revel in the spotlight and ameliorate choppy political waters back home. Trump was willing to give up a lot, announcing without consulting South Korea that the U.S. would be ending "war games" (AKA, Joint Military exercises) between the U.S. and South Korea. (Nor did Trump tell the Pentagon he was going to do this.)

We'll never know what the 2 dictators, as Fox put it, really said because there is no record, Trumpanzee, drug-addled and prematurely senile, claiming he has "one of the great memories of all times." Christina Wilkie tweeted that "By allowing only their interpreters, Trump and Kim left no one who could verify what they agreed to in the meeting. Policy experts agree, this is probably bad for the world. But for Trump and Kim, who both built empires on fictional narratives, it’s just fine. In fact, it’s ideal."

The NY Times reported that Señor T said that denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula would begin "very quickly," defining neither "denuclearization" nor "very quickly." In a joint statement, Trumpanzee "committed to provide security guarantees" to North Korea, and Kim "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula," which is hardly new and is only an agree to "work towards," an intention. Everyone except the moron fake president knows this has happened before. Will it-- the top priority-- get Trump a Nobel?
The wording of the document signed by Trump and Kim Jong-un on Tuesday falls some way short of the dramatic billing the president gave it at the end of the leaders’ historic summit in Singapore.

Trump described it as a “very comprehensive” agreement that would “take care of a very big and very dangerous problem for the world.”

...There is no direct commitment here to formalise those sentiments with a peace treaty to replace the armistice signed at the end of the Korean war in 1953. That would require the involvement of China and other countries that took part in the conflict. As expected, Trump offered “unspecified” security guarantees to North Korea, a gesture whose vagueness matches that of Kim’s commitment to denuclearise.
Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
This is the most critical, and easily the most problematic, of the leaders’ statements. It does not meet Washington’s long-stated goal of complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement (CVID) of North Korea’s nuclear arsenal, but simply restates Kim’s position after his summit with Moon.

No serious analysts expected the North Korean leader to commit to CVID in his first meeting with Trump. That process-- if it happens at all-- could take years and cost billions of dollars.

It also fails to define what is meant by denuclearisation. In Washington, it requires Kim to abandon his nuclear ambitions. But the North Korean interpretation is more complicated. The regime believes it should include the withdrawal of the US nuclear umbrella from South Korea, possibly including the withdrawal of all 28,500 US troops ranged along the South’s border with the North.

As the Atlantic Council’s Alexander Vershbow said, it comes down to the difference between the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and the denuclearisation of North Korea.
In an interview, Trump, undoubtably the stupidest and most ignorant person to ever occupy the White House, said to George Stephanopoulos, "I do trust him." And who exactly is "dishonest and weak?" Should Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill have given in to Hitler and Tojo? Ask yourself that... because Kim is more brutal and bloodthirsty than either of them. Yesterday both Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell were out front advocating their support for Trump's appeasement-- in a very big way. Your crackpot fake "president": "Honestly, I think he’s going to do these things. I may be wrong, I mean I may stand before you in six months and say, hey, I was wrong-- I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that, but I’ll find some kind of an excuse." Trump, incoherent and delusional, as usual, publicly lavished praise on Kim, calling him a "very talented man" who "loves his country very much... A worthy negotiator...a very worthy, very smart negotiator. We had a terrific day and we learned a lot about each other and our countries... I think our whole relationship with North Korea and the Korean peninsula is going to be a very different situation than it has in the past,.. "We’ve developed a very special bond."

Few members of Congress on either side of the aisle, have been as forthright about this bogus "deal" as Elizabeth Warren has. This was her statement Tuesday: "Yesterday's photo op doesn't change the fact that a nuclear-armed North Korea is a threat to the security of the United States, our allies, and the world. Generations of North Korean leaders have made and broken promises before-- this Administration's success will be judged on whether it can eliminate Kim's nuclear weapons and verify they are gone. We're at the beginning of a diplomatic process that will require patience, experience, and close coordination with our allies. I want to see the President succeed, but a handshake is no substitute for a binding, verifiable deal."

Oh, I found a Republican who feels just as strongly as Warren-- Meghan McCain, who said, also on Tuesday, "This is a totalitarian communist dictator in the same vein as Hitler-- murder, enslavement, imprisonment, sexual violence, starvation, forced abortions, political, racial, religious persecution... [Kim’s regime] is completely and utterly the closest thing to Hitler’s Germany that exists in modern time. My problem was how far it went with the buddy-buddy, and there was no talk whatsoever of the human rights violations going on in that country."

Putin's Fool is going to be the death of this nation, for at least 60 million follow him directly, and the remainder do nothing about ending his tenure.

To borrow from Bill Maher, trump is a whiny little bitch.
Kim played him perfectly. Putin plays him like Ty Cobb played baseball.

Americans are whiny little bitches. Wouldn't recognize themselves in a mirror. Too stupid. No wonder we're so easy to be played.
