This is so weird. Trump is absolutely classless - he's a Jerry Springer participant and audience member. His tantrum at the G7 was only inches from his strutting about with his hand making an 'L' shape calling Troudeau "Loser! Loser!".

He is the clown to distract us while the grown-up fascists behind him steadily dismantle the government and build a dictatorship.

And yet - and yet - if he pulls off this North Korea thing, he'll be hailed as A Good Thing.

Fucking hell. Tails, dogs, lunatics, asylums.

Dictatorship sits well with his chum in NK and Russia

I must confess, I'm beginning to quite like Trump. He's like a box of chocolates .... you never know what yer gonna get.

He's resisted the urge to vilify Russia, and now this with NK. I've always had a soft spot for evil tyrants, and Trump seems determined to bring them in from the cold, bless 'im. Mind you, if I was Kim I wouldn't be briefing a sigh of relief just yet. Gadaffi went from being a zero to a hero under Bush and Blair's regimes (when he gave up WMD), only to become public enemy number one again under those of Cameron and Obama.

Of course he's resisted vilifying Russia - he's funded by them.

And Trump can't do much with NK - China would kick off if he did, and then Russia, bish bash bosh M.A.D.

But dictators are cool - I like it when they order the mass slaughter of their own citizens, because I'm a genuine misanthrope.

I'm not quite sure what he's pulled off with this NK thing.  As far as I can tell, the only thing he's done is agree to two long standing demands they've had:

- face to face with the US president
- stop war games on Korean peninsula

Yay?

We all know that Trump is the only one to ever get NK to release prisoners.

...but one was half dead...so, only partial points for that one.


Good to see you, amigo.

He's making hay out of the PR, though.

Is he? I don’t know anyone outside of his base that takes him seriously here.

I read about the students that were locked up cos they accessed a hidden floor that the NK used to spy on guests.

They are not uncommon, there is one in the hotel the frau is currently refurbing.

I guess these days they are just security rooms..

Unfortunately, Trumps approval rate is almost what Obama's was around the same time of his reign. I never underestimate the gullibility of a sizable portion of the American public.

He's a shambles of a human being.

Turns out that the only thing worse than a bad loser is a shit winner. And he is shit.

"Make America Great Again"....the world's only super power, the most powerful military in the history of the world, an economy so strong that if it pauses for breath the world has a heart attack, a country that is shitting hard and soft power. Define great.

The problem with fulfilling the false prophecy that America isn't 'great' is that you do so much political gymnastics that you get bent over by the guy who wants to bend you over. A Finnish paper called it Trump 0 Putin 1

'hoist' and 'petard' spring to mind.

Turns out you do reap what you sow.
