Donald Trump failed yet again, won’t sign a fake deal with Kim Jong Un

I haven’t paid one iota of attention to Donald Trump’s trip to Vietnam, where he was meeting with Kim Jong Un at some kind of summit. The whole point of the summit was for Trump and Kim to work out some kind of stupid fake deal and they would both sign a piece of paper that meant nothing. It was all for show, to make Mr. Lazy Fatass Executive Time look busy and presidential. The optics were the only purpose. And now the optics couldn’t even be agreed upon. There was supposed to be a big signing of whatever the f–k fake agreement later on today. Only Trump and Kim couldn’t even agree to the terms of the dumb bullsh-t. So instead of a fancy signing ceremony, Trump abruptly left the summit and he’s headed home.

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un won’t sign a deal in Vietnam after all. In an abrupt change, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that Trump’s press conference, originally scheduled for around 4 am, will now start two hours earlier. But that’s when Trump and Kim planned to host a signing ceremony for a potential agreement like they did last year in Singapore. About an hour after that, Sanders told reporters in Hanoi that “No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future.”

The cancellation of the day’s stunts was so sudden that even reporters noted how all of the diplomatic stagecraft was left as-is, like the “working lunch” table:

Something else that happened was that during the abrupt presser, Trump was asked about Otto Warmbier, the American student who was tortured in a North Korean jail and later died, in 2017. Trump said: “He felt badly about it. He felt very badly. He tells me that he didn’t know about it and I will take him at his word.” Remember, Trump also took Vladimir Putin at his “word” that Russia didn’t interfere in the election. Trump always takes the side of fascists, dictators and white supremacists.

    So overall, an excellent day yesterday for President Donny Deals.

  2. JanetFerber says:

    No words for “take him at his word.” Too bad the fat f-ck can’t take the C.I.A. or F.B.I. at THEIR word, his own freaking government. Or is it? Unbelievable.

  3. Kittycat says:

    Honestly he is the worst president.

    What a mess.

    • Giddy says:

      The history books that will be written about him and his corrupt administration will number in the thousands. He will be declared the worst president by a mile. He’s so stupid that he’ll probably be proud that he “won” that category.

  4. Incredulous says:

    Look, Donnie Crimebrain had a long flight and then stayed up past his bed time to ragewatch Cohen and then he was so tired and sun-downing so hard he couldn’t keep his sleepy eyes awake. Plus, there’s only one McDonald’s in Hanoi and you know they’d spit in his food so he had to go home he was so hungry. Right now, he’s having sleepy nap time, just give him another hour or two and he’ll be back to raging on twitter about everything not being his fault because he has the best brains.

    Seriously, though, this next batch of tweets is gonna be hilarious – he couldn’t do anything in Viet Nam and no-one paid attention to him for AGES so he is gonna be in a massive narcissistic rage and lash out. Honestly, I expect him to rage-tweet an invasion of Venezuela.

  5. Kitten says:

    Dictators First. He loves all the terrible, oppressive leaders because he admires them.
    He ASPIRES to be them.

    He’s so effin bad at president-ing and every day that he’s in office is another day that our country (and the world) gets less safe.

    • Badrockandroll says:

      Dictators hate free press, which is I guess why the White House banned all American print reporters from last night’s dinner. Included in the ban? Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press, the guy who asked trump at Helsinki whether he believed Putin or his own Intelligence Agencies. Of course Trump chose Putin, in language awfully similar to that which he used to endorse Kim.

  6. Jerusha says:

    Breaking News!! trump takes Hitler at his word that he knew nothing about any gas chambers, says Hitler is fine person and they’ll meet again.

  7. AnnaKist says:

    God, apart from everything else, he’s an utter embarrassment. They seem well-matched, though. Sickening, but well-matched.

  8. B n A fan says:

    So, he flew for 20 hours for a handshake. Stayed two days, fles back home, flying for 20 hours, for what again? So we can spend millions of dollars why? He knew there was no agreement before he left. If FLOTOS stays with this conman she’s a part of the problem, giving him cover.

    Btw, if anyone believes Kim did not know what happened to Warmbier they are a fool and he says he don’t believe Kim knew what happened to that America, what a disaster.

    • Kittycat says:

      I can imagine a thousand better ways to use those millions.

      First thought was fixing the water in Flint.

  9. Beth says:

    That’s so embarrassing to have to cancel a fancy signing ceremony. That’s like having to cancel a birthday party because nobody wanted to come.

    • Esmom says:

      Ha. Which I’m guessing Trump might have some experience with. Unless he bribed or paid kids to come to his parties, which seems in character.

  10. Lightpurple says:

    My heart breaks for the Warmbier family. He used their son’s death as political theater and now this.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I know – he basically condoned another hostile nations state sanctioned torture and murder of an innocent young man.

      Maybe he should send Jr over to experience what they did to that young man.

  11. Tiffany says:

    Of course there was not going to be a signing, he went there to have some one on one time with his crush Putin and then left.

  12. Anastasia says:

    AND he was probably royally PISSED about the Cohen hearings. I predicted they’d abruptly cancel things (the Trump team) and they did!

    He’s such a worthless waste of space.

  13. Lightpurple says:

    Meanwhile, Jared and Nagini are visiting their evil friends in Turkey and Saudi Arabia

    • Badrockandroll says:

      Netanyahu was just indicted, so Nagini and the Spawn in law are just out for personal graft, since I don’y think that even they, awesome dealmakers and wonder children they may be, can negotiate peace with an office holder awaiting trial.

    • Jerusha says:

      Still searching for that perfect little non-extradition hideaway cottage.

  14. Jerusha says:

    We’re far from the shallow now, oh, oh, oh, oh

  15. Blairski says:

    I live in fear of the actions that 45 might take because of his narcissism or stupidity, so I’m honestly pleased he didn’t sign a terrible deal just to be able to sign _something_, so he could continue his campaign for a Nobel Peace prize.

  16. Cay says:

    Instead of canceling a meeting he knew would amount to nothing, he went to Vietnam to be out of the country when Cohen testified. Then he and his comrades could talk about how reprehensible it was that bad things were said about him while he was away.

  17. Rosyquartz says:

    How about less boring politics and more celebrity news like updates on Luke Perry’s stroke?

    • Jane'sWastedTalent says:

      Why not both? Many of us love the political posts.

      Full disclosure: I have zero interest in Luke Perry. If you find him more interesting than the fate of the world, I did notice there was an article about him on MSN when my browser opened.

      • CairinaCat says:

        You are welcome to toddle on back to fox news then.

      • Jane'sWastedTalent says:

        I don’t get my news here either, but I do find it interesting, and enjoy reading everyone’s opinions and humor. The humor especially, although I’ve read some fascinating insights on here, and informative discussions on the intricacies of law, etc (Of course I always verify the information).

  18. JRenee says:

    Dude is trying to gain legitimacy, he’s not giving up anything significant to tRump, smh

  19. Roz from Oz says:

    Oh my God, the guy’s a moron (re: Warmbier). America, you need a Westminster system. To put so much power in the hands of one person and make them practically irremovable is ridiculous.

    • Roz from Oz says:

      Just to add to that, people get more trusting as they get older, with or without dementia. Maybe you need to consider whether he’s too old for the job?

  20. Eye roller says:

    An historic meeting at which our president wouldn’t concede anything to a dictator and you can’t be bothered to read about it, but can spend time watching Cohen lie.

    Focus on the gossip and leave the real news to President Trump and his Twitter account. lol.
