Proof: North Korea Can Also Make Trump Do Anything

There are three things Trump can't resist, and none of them even include "money" and "blackmail." But those, too.

I’m not gonna say that Comrade Stupid deliberately used NK nuclear aspirations to knock the Stormy Daniels story off the front pages, but, you know…

There are three ways to get a narcissist like Comrade Stupid to do anything:

  1. Tell him it’s never been done before.
  2. Tell him the lawyers would never allow it.
  3. Tell him the establishment would go crazy.

…and before you know it, he’s taken off the Eclipse glasses and is starring into the sun.

I can only imagine what could go wrong when these two meet face-to-face. First off, Comrade Stupid won’t prepare, he will wing it: he believes that his singular charisma and “talent” can solve the world’s most intractable problems, but he isn’t willing to spend the time to so much as study the problem. He’ll have Brian Kilmeade in his mind, imagining how Petunia & Pals will cover it.

NK has a track record of negotiating these things and then doing whatever they want (just ask Chimpy how they got their plutonium game going):

“The regime may promise to do so but history shows it has a poor record of upholding such pledges. In 1994 it signed the Agreed Framework to freeze its plutonium weapons programme in exchange for aid. The deal collapsed in 2002 amid US intelligence revelations that the regime was secretly pursuing a uranium enrichment programme. In 2005 Pyongyang committed to de-nuclearisation following multilateral talks; it tested its first nuclear device the very next year.”
