Friends and Monsters

Leaving South Korea after a wonderful meeting with Chairman Kim Jong Un. Stood on the soil of North Korea, an important statement for all, and a great honor!

To describe each particular batch [of Snarks]:

※ And those that have whiskers, and scratch.«

Such friends, as the Beaver and Butcher became,
 Have seldom if ever been known;
In winter or summer, ’twas always the same—
 You could never meet either alone.

And when quarrels arose—as one frequently finds
 Quarrels will, spite of every endeavour—
The song of the Jubjub recurred to their minds,
 And cemented their friendship for ever!

He who fights with monsters might take care
lest he thereby become a monster.
And if you gaze for long into an abyss,
the abyss gazes also into you.

Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn,
dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird.
Und wenn du lange in den Abgrund blickst,
blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein.

Whom Can I Believe?

….Death to America. I terminated deal, which was not even ratified by Congress, and imposed strong sanctions. They are a much weakened nation today than at the beginning of my Presidency, when they were causing major problems throughout the Middle East. Now they are Bust!….

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 21, 2019

….proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone. I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world. Sanctions are biting & more added last night. Iran can NEVER have Nuclear Weapons, not against the USA, and not against the WORLD!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 21, 2019


Very smart thread this time. But who tells the truth? Trump? Iran's regime? MBS? In this alternative facts era, how can we know?

I live in a country where, in a peaceful landscape, US soldiers are stationed who pilot these drones:

North Korea has developed nuclear weapons.
Trump respects Kim Jong Un and saluts to his Generals.

Iran hasn't nuclear weapons yet.
Trump doesn't respect Iran's regime.

What is going on here?

Trump keeps good relations with Saudi Arabia. They are a much strengthened nation today. Now Khashoggi is bust! He worked for the enemy of the people (@washingtonpost), but now he cannot comment anymore on Trump's handling of the Iran issue.

President @realDonaldTrump stayed after his commencement speech at the @AF_Academy in Colorado Springs this past Thursday to shake hands with nearly 1,000 graduating cadets….

Trump and Huckabee had no clue. In such a scenario that kind of military salute surely is not "common courtesy": Trump isn't a soldier and wears no uniform. His salute is childish. Actually, the North Korean General seems to be a bit surprised.

Trump Hears Signals

Joe Bidan could have never made a deal this good

— Todd ShamTodd (@ToddShamTodd) May 26, 2019


It is not this typo which tells us something about the IQ and the evilness of the present president of the USA. And the support which Trump gets tells us something about the character and the evilness of a large part of the citizens of the USA.

North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Bidan a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?

It looks like this tweet was replaced by the next tweet from @realDonaldTrump.

Ain't it a hoot when a murderous psychopath takes your side and joins you in fifth-grader level insults of people who've given far more of themselves to this country than you ever have or ever will?

— Frank Wells (@FrankTracy) May 26, 2019


Trump deleted his mind-bogglingly awful tweet supporting Kim Jong Un, but the internet always remembers.

RIP: Joe Bidan. We hardly knew ya.

— Grant Stern (@grantstern) May 26, 2019


It’s incredibly chilling for the President of the United States to excuse the belligerent actions of a North Korean dictator who murdered American citizens while applauding attacks on Democratic opponents like “Joe Bidan” just before playing golf in Japan on Memorial Day weekend.

Trump-Kim Summit Ends Abruptly with No Nuclear Agreement

Trump: Kim promised me he wouldn't test nuclear weapons "and I trust him"

— The Hill (@thehill) February 28, 2019


Kim got more recognition.
Trump doesn’t recognize what he won’t get from Kim.

Kim is the smarter and better prepared negotiator.
Trump doesn’t recognize that either.

JUST IN: Trump-Kim summit ends abruptly with no nuclear agreement

— The Hill (@thehill) February 28, 2019


Trump and Kim abruptly cut short summit meeting, failing to reach nuclear deal

— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) February 28, 2019


Yes, Kim Jong Un needs to get rid of North Korea's nukes. But what about the ricin, mustard gas, hydrogen cyanide and the nerve agent tabun? Or the variety of biological agents including smallpox, botulism, typhoid and anthrax in North Korea's possession?
