    Ah, so Trump gave into Kim's "demands" according to KCNA.

    NK has been portraying the summit as Kim going toe-to-toe with Trump and winning. Shocking NK would use the summit as propaganda. Of course, helping Kim consolidate further control of NK by pushing back on hardliners is just an unfortunate byproduct.

    When the words "Kim cares about his people..." came flying out of Trump's mouth yesterday I...saw...red. Cares about his people? CARES ABOUT HIS PEOPLE? I can't with this president any more. Would someone give this man a freaking clue? Is he even capable of comprehending facts? This is not an appropriate statement to make when the world knows IT ISN'T TRUE. Think, Mr. President, about your words. God help me, I can't with this man any more. I honestly can't.

    Meanwhile, there's a special place in hell for people like the PM of Canada. But Kim, he's a swell guy. This is our world now.

    I'm surprised it took you this long. The quote that sealed the deal for me was :

    "Take the guns first, we will have due process later. I like taking the guns early." -Donald Trump 3/1/2018

    Also, this was a close second:

    Also, Kim has accepted an offer to visit the White House.

    Pffttt....It's like you don't even know me. I just cannot abide having a sitting US President play footsie with a murdering dictator and then act like....What, he's a nice guy. He cares about his people. On top of not having a clue about our own constitution. This was before he'd even met with Kim. But I was done with the whole debacle after those words were uttered because I knew...KNEW...Trump had no damn clue what he was doing.

    My comments were tongue in cheek. I think you share my same views of everything Trump, but convey them much more succinctly and eloquently.

    Oh, I know, Kory. Mine were also in jest. It's kind of a phrase I use sometimes... "It's like you don't even know me". It was tongue and cheek as well. I knew what you meant. Yesterday and today was just.... ugh! (I have no eloquent words to use!)

    We really do have a very significant cultural issue in society. It's not even just the "everybody is bad" mentality that has seeped into the culture, but in addition the victimhood/aggregator philosophy that has become so rampant. It's not just about race and skin color, like white men being scum and black women being victimized slaves, but we shun the rich and then tell poor people they're all criminals. What do we expect? Everybody is constantly in panic mode about our lives, every little issue is turned up to an 11 by the media and it has induced panic in our society.

    When will our children get taught values again? I remember being appalled in high school because kids thought it was cool to stay up till 2 am on school nights drinking freshman year (15 year olds), brag about the Fs on their report card, and ditch half their classes. Hell, ditching is such a norm nowadays that nobody even thinks twice about doing it. If we want to fix our cultural issues, we have to reclaim the culture, but as long as the left continues to promote the notions that the family structure is a social construct and social values aren't important outside of LGBT/race, and the right pushes that the only ideas that really matter are those that "trigger the libtards", these issues are going to continue.

    It appears that cohen will flip. I wonder if Trump will go ahead and pardon him.

    What a dump my home state is. Not surprised a Democrat, John Bel Edwards, who was elected continues to blame the previous admin over 3 years since taking office. Louisiana continues to slip into the abyss and a lot of it can be attributed to Edwards anti-business and anti-oil and gas policies that have crippled the states main economic engine. You can't survive off tourism in a state as dilapidated as Louisiana.

    Apparently if trump pardons him, Cohen can be forced to testify. He can’t plead the fifth because there is no self-incrimination if you have been pardoned.

    I think Trump and Kim do understand each other, make the most power and money you can even at other people's expense.

    The author of the tweet is somewhat incorrect that the war ended in 1953 as technically all we did was sign an armistice.

    But, an 18 year old killed in 1953, would've been born in 1935. If his mother gave birth at 18 she would've been 99 years old during the campaign. Even if you stretch and say the mother was only 15, you'd still be looking at looking at a mother that was 96 years old. How many 96-99 year olds were at Trump's campaign rallies and got one-on-one time with Trump?

    A harmless lie you might say. No, it is just another case of Trump lying when there's zero good reason to do so. No one opposes getting the remains of our dead back from North Korea. Why invent a story making it sound like you are doing so at the behest of a parent? We all know WHY. Because Trump had to make it about himself and how great of a leader he is.

    What's funny is the extreme hyperbole of North Korean propaganda really isn't that far off from Trump's frequent lies. Things like getting 14 holes-in-one at golf, etc are not that dissimilar from some of the insane whoppers Trump has told since he announced his campaign for POTUS.

    Matt will tell us that Obama also lied, and that there's some conceivable scenario in which Trump isn't lying. Give me a break. It is insulting that Trump thinks the American people are this stupid. Maybe we are since we keep letting him get away with it...

    Isn't Netanyahu under investigation for corruption? Pretty sure he was just brought in for a questioning just 3 days ago....

    Not sure I'd call him a real leader.

    Millenials are the worst thing to ever grace the world with their presence. They have no foundation of principles. They are guided purely by emotion. They teem with hypocrisy and have endless victim/aggressor mentality.

    This is a giant f*****g circus at this point and it's actually pretty funny to watch. Also, most of us already knew the millennials are morally spineless. They always have been more about feelings than anything else which is honestly one of the biggest reasons Trump actually won.
