Annals of Diplomacy

Joint Communique from Singapore via CNN:

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

Historic summit?  Yeah, just like this one.

Or this one.

Or this one.

But it’s probably closer to this one.

Charlie Pierce:

The two anomalous creatures signed an anomalous document that really doesn’t commit anyone to anything. There is really nothing to comment upon, except for the fact that an American president* met a leader of North Korea for the first time. There’s no reason for them to trust each other, and no reason for the rest of us to trust either of them.

And, besides, no country in the history of the world willingly has given up all its nuclear weapons once it had them. I am skeptical that North Korea under its present leadership is going to be the first one to do so. But, hey, maybe they really want a yacht club and a couple of casinos.

  1. And Trump is eyeing those “beautiful beaches”. Perfect places for a couple Trump towers and condos.

  2. What is the difference between Charlie McCarthy and Trump?
    One has sawdust for brains and the other is a dummy.
