Trump's Friend Has Beautiful Vision

Trump's Tweets provide an endless series of entertainment fodder for writers.

Since Mish looks at the world through TDS glasses:

Clinton gives North Korea $4 billion in "aid" to include 500,000 barrels of oil for an "agreement" for ending North Korea's nuclear weapons program. North Korea only accelerated their nuclear weapons program.

Bush have North Korea $400 million in aid in exchange for shuttering its main nuclear reactor. North Korea took the money and kept the reactor open.

Obama used "strategic patience" as a policy for North Korea - basically letting North Korea continue to develop ICBMs and a working nuclear weapon while do nothing. Obama leaves office with a North Korea with fully functional ICBMs and functional nuclear weapons.

President Trump has already made more progress with North Korea in the past year than his predecessors managed over the course of more than two decades - in exchange for a piece of paper.

There have been no new nuclear weapons tests or provocative ICBM ballistic missile launches.

The last people President Trump needs advice from are the ones who created this mess in the first place.

Never forget that Kim Jong Un tortured and murdered a 22 year old American college student for taking a poster, let alone thousands of his own people.

For Trump to call this man a friend and to make kissy poo with him at their meetings is embarrassing and shows just how debased Trump's moral qualities truly are. In fact, both men are greatly lacking in any moral or ethical qualities.

Those missiles can easily reach multiple US military bases along with Japan and South Korea. Russia and China love to use North Korea to keep everyone on edge. Too bad for the people of North Korea and China and Russia who have to live under these terrible regimes with no rights.

So what else can Trump say? Saying anything else is admitting that he failed. Have you seen Trump say that he failed on anything he can not redirect the blame to someone else? Yeah me neither. Even as he was being defeated in every front Hitler kept blaming his generals. Narcissistic are all the same. BTW he will blame the fed when the recession hits.

Lewis Black had a bit about George Bush having handlers. "What is, he a bear?"

I'm fairly certain if no one cared about the Bush and Obama presidencies they'd have been allowed to Tweet any random thought that crossed into their heads too. But his handlers were looking at their next job and wanted to make sure he looked "Presidential" over everything else. That meant heavy filtering and constant scrutinization of every word scripted. But given the toxicity of Trump I think they're just letting Trump do whatever he wants. And anyone who might have questioned his judgement probably got a lot of pushback anyway.

again: Trump is anti-American in spirit. His heart is over in Asia and has been since the mid-90s

Trump is an embarrassment to the US and a threat to the world. He is easily the worst President in US history. Bush may have been dumb, but Trump is so stupid and wrapped up in himself, he is dangerous. Anyone who supports him is a moron or a fool.

of course to admit otherwise would mean acknowledging failure and that Trump the emperor wears no clothes.
