I think the main point of negotiation with Kim was the Trump branding on the Ryugyong Hotel

Can someone confirm if the above video was actually shown to Kim?

If this is true, then we have entered into occult dimensions of reality that are beyond human comprehension... maybe they are at Trump-level comprehnsion, but I doubt he's really human... he can't be if he thinks that video is something appropriate to show in a diplomatic meeting.

What a disgraceful week for the U.S. presidency! It cound't have ended more fittingly if Kim had literally rather than just figuratively bent Trump over the negotiation table and sodomized him.

In round one, Kim racked up win after win. After years of isolation and well-deserved shunning by the international community, he got a coming-out party hosted by the leader of the world’s greatest power proclaiming he’s “honored” to meet him. Kim’s biggest score, though, was Trump’s pledge to end U.S.–South Korean military exercises on the peninsula and a presidential pledge to consider ending the U.S. troop presence. This is something North Korea and China have wanted for years, and it is an absolutely stunning giveaway of U.S. leverage with no price asked. Trump will regret this.

Trump shaking hands with, and praising, Kim Jong-Un! Shocking, horrible and disgusting!

Not unprecedented, though.

FDR shaking hands with, and praising, Stalin, anyone?

Ffs...you see no difference between this and the 44 Yalta conference?

What makes me think it didn't happen is the unlikelihood of Kim being able to find the requisite organ or, once having found it, to wade through the lard surrounding the Trumpian orifice. :laugh:

Apparently he's claiming that parents of Korean War soldiers begged him on the campaign trail to negotiate for the return of their sons remains.

As many are pointing out: minimum possible age of such parent - 101. Statistically probable age of such parent - 110-120.

Math genius. History genius.

I think the minimum age would be about 87 and the statistically likely 100 or more, since most of the American casualties were in 1950(?), especially the battle of Chosin — but yeah, it was probably BS.

Are you sure about a minimum of 87? A kid of 18 who was killed in 1950 would have been born in 1932. His parents - that's who we're talking about here - would have to have been born in the early 1910s at the latest. That would put them past the century mark.

Oh puleeze, just because you don't see the pistol on the table doesn't mean it is not behind Rocket Man's back.
Can't you see how patronizing Trump is being to Fat Boy?
FDR did not threaten to pulverize Stalin and his country.
Rhetoric like this (first few minutes) preceded the talks. Don't think it is not being taken VERY SERIOUSLY.

Trump's relationship to China is also a major factor, a country that doesn't want nukes on its Eastern border.
Again, puleeze!
