Trump Agrees To Meet With Kim Jong-Un [VIDEO]

The New York Times reports:

North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, has invited President Trump to meet for negotiations over its nuclear program, an audacious diplomatic overture that would bring together two strong-willed, idiosyncratic leaders who have traded threats of war.

The South Korean official, Chung Eui-yong, who conveyed the invitation told reporters that Mr. Trump had accepted it and would meet with Mr. Kim by May.

For Mr. Trump, a meeting with Mr. Kim, a leader he has derided as “Little Rocket Man,” is a breathtaking gamble. No sitting American president has ever met a North Korean leader, and Mr. Trump himself had ruled out direct talks unless North Korea takes measurable steps toward relinquishing its nuclear arsenal.

  • Lazycrockett

    Nothing will come of this, and I highly doubt the meeting ever takes place.

    • lymis

      It will if Kim Jong Un offers to throw him a parade….

      • Nowhereman

        Maybe Kim will lure him to North Korea with a parade, and that will be the last we see of Two Scoops.

          • John

            L! O! L!

          • Nowhereman

            Shit–then we’d have to pay a ransom to get him back!

        • John

          a fate devoutly to be wised for…

  • Treant

    I’ll await that cancellation or barrage of hurled insults followed by an accidental bombing with great abandon.

    Unsurprisingly, a fascist government is working to prop up another fascist government. It’ll be another Great Deal where we give away the farm and don’t even ask for inspections.

    • PeterC

      I will guess that there will be a Russian adviser there to help with the technical input.

  • ClevelandJim

    Oh, THAT’ll go well.

    • Treant

      We doubt it’ll go off at all.

  • Judas Peckerwood

    10-1 odds against it ever happening.

    • Bluto

      You’re optimistic.

  • JT

    Drumpf: Kimmy, here are the designs to our missiles. Now, am I a good guy, or what?

    • Natty Enquirer

      The goodest.

  • Lars Littlefield

    We’re being played and not by North Korea.

  • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)
  • Judas Peckerwood

    Two micro-peckered braggarts in a big dick contest. What could possibly go wrong?

    • ClevelandJim

      Have to change the name of that contest, neither of the contestants qualify to compete.

  • bkmn

    What could go wrong?

  • Natty Enquirer
  • Lazycrockett

    MSNBC is already back to Russian Collusion.

    • Lazycrockett

      and fucking a porn actress.

      • Boss Dave✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Which actually happened, cupcake. Both of them.

    • boobert

      I think they realize this is a joke and moved on.

    • Nowhereman

      I’m watching Chris Hayes on MSNBC right now, and they are indeed covering the North Korea story. And then no doubt they will cover other issues. There’s a lot going on. and I doubt if anyone believes this meeting will ever happen.

  • safari

    Kim, like the rest of the world, knows that you have to pet Donald to get whatever you want.

  • Pollos Hermanos

    North Korean hooker pee pee tape is on it’s way.

    • The_Wretched

      Nothing so plain. They’ll surgically alter teen girls to look like a teen Ivamka and cover them in gold leaf. Donny will be so distracted that he’ll gift them Alaska.

      • Marc: The Social Gadfly

        Promise?

  • Ninja0980
    • DaddyRay

      Republicans are going after the Democratic Party donors

      • Ninja0980

        And with Gorsuch on SCOTUS, they will succeed.

        • jimbo65

          Yup. Before Scalia took a dirt nap he signaled he was finally going to flip on the fair share issue. We’re in dark times indeed.

  • DaddyRay

    For those that say that the meeting will ever happen.

    Of course it will because Donald will not understand the implications of it and how it legitimizes NK

  • matrem

    I’m rooting for a murder suicide

    • Treant

      You evil, hateful man.

      …just for that, I’m offering you a free BJ, no reciprocation necessary, just lie back and reap the rewards of being deliciously evil.

    • Mickey Bitsko

      I’m rooting for Melania defecting.

      • John

        Defecating is more like it….scared sh*tless!

  • Boss Dave✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Trump will get NK “permanent denuclearization” right after he wins a Nobel in physics.

  • boobert

    Never gonna happen. A big fat nothingburger to distract from porn stars and Russia.

  • Cackalaquiano

    Oh. Shit.

  • Lazycrockett
    • BobSF_94117

      Of course, you can wing it. It’s not a good idea, of course.

      • thatotherjean

        With Trump, you might as well wing it. He won’t remember half of what you tell him, and will refuse to use the other half in his “negotiations.”

  • TexasBoy

    Meanwhile, NK readies a “Westworld” style robot, waiting for a body casting of Donald Trump to skin the machine, which will be taken during the visit after telling Donald it is to make a lifesize statue in his honor.

  • jimbo65

    Anybody else envisioning this going like a bad Godfather negotiation?

    • DaddyRay

      Maybe he will send Ben Carson – the expendable black guy

  • JWC

    Oh to be a fly on the wall there Or is this just another master diversion

  • Max_1

    No diplomat for NK and No diplomat for SK.
    … So of course he’ll send his son in law.

    FUCKING AMATURES ARE RUNNING STATE.

    • BearEyes

      what’s left of it.

  • DaddyRay

    Will Donald send Jared or Ivanka

    • Cuberly Deux

      kellyanne?

    • Max_1

      Both… if they’ll be allowed out of the Country by May.

      • gaymex1

        Unfortunately Jared was out yesterday. He was in Mexico City trying to smooth over issues created by Trump.
        Sending a boy (with no experience) to do an adult’s job.
        Please…hurry up and build that wall so no more Trumpers can come this way.

    • Lazycrockett

      Its bout time Barron started pulling his weight.

  • Cuberly Deux
  • Yea.
    I mean, what’s the worst that can happen?
    LOL!!!!!

  • DaddyRay

    The deal will probably be that the NK prison camps will be the new manufactures of Ivanka’s shoe line

  • Lazycrockett
  • boobert
  • DaddyRay

    So when does the Trump Pyongyang Golf resort open

  • Karl Dubhe

    yah, I don’t believe it. Dunno why, but I don’t trust either of the parties.

    Must be their hair.

  • dcurlee

    Thank goodness I have my bomb shelter builder on speed dial

  • dcurlee

    If they do meet it’s a way to kill two birds with one stone

  • DaddyRay

    How is this going impact the Jim Bakker Food Slop Bucket sales?

    • John

      Sales will plummet with the end of times at hand….

  • KnownDonorDad
  • Scene: IF this meeting happens, Kim Jong Un will flatter the shit out of Donald, and then proceed to take him for everything he’s worth. Donald will fold like a wet newspaper.

    In the end, Donald will claim victory, while DPRK gains all the concessions.

    Oh, and bonus: Donald will praise Kim as a terrific leader and express envy over the fact he’s a brutal dictator.

    • WH is already walking this back, btw.

        • John

          press secretary sanders??? is she still employed? I thought she pissed off the emperor.

      • The_Wretched

        Someone should tell Trump that he looks weak when he waffles.

      • boobert

        Mars? Wonderland? Over the Rainbow?

        • Avenger280

          Narnia? Gilligan’s Island? Alpha Centuri? Bikini Bottom?

        • John

          Mars works for me. I think Elon Musk can probably arrange to get both of them there on his next rocket launch…

    • John

      (non-existent) god help us if Un has a military parade for the dotard!

  • BobSF_94117

    Our top (only, really) diplomat on North Korea just resigned LAST WEEK. And now this?

    Something extra-special weird is going on.

    • Treant

      Maybe he’s gonna run and not come back?

      :-p

  • Lazycrockett
  • DaddyRay

    If this keeps Dotard from launching nukes it may be worth it

  • andrew

    Just months ago Kim Jong Un and Trump were threatening each other with nuclear war, so this move to talk is a positive sign. As Churchill said: “It is better to jaw jaw than to war war.”

  • DaddyRay

    Anyone seeing what Japan’s reaction is to this news?

  • mad-dog

    Maybe when they shake hands, they’ll just collapse into an infinitely dense black hole of dumbfuckery, from which not even tweets can escape.

  • boobert

    Breaking news so fake that it bombed in half an hour, lol.

  • JCF

    If this was Obama (or Hillary), Rethugs would be calling for them to be shot.

    Nothing matters anymore. For Rethugs, it’s ALL politics.

  • JoeMyGod

    New thread alert, y’all.

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    can we hope that NK keeps trump permanently?? like in a dungeon

  • worstcultever

    Real story: the two koreas taking their own steps toward mutual cooperation

    Manufactured bullshit: everything else

  • So one Russian puppet meets with another. Got it.

  • witch

    Don’t trust either one ….

  • thatotherjean

    I have no idea whether they will emerge to cloak the earth in a cloud of radioactive dust, or as BFFs. Absolutely anything could happen if they ever actually get together..

  • Tom Mears

    My guess is that Kim is hoping to gaslight Donny into believing him a sincere negotiator. Promise the earth, the moon, and the stars, then fail to deliver. He probably needs China to ease back sanctions and another 12 monts of breathing room on his missle program. By the time dumb donald figures it out it will be too late.

      It’s a runway showdown to decide which world leader has the most ridiculous hairdo.

  • Mickey Bitsko
  • MassageBear
    • Henry Auvil

      He fucked Madonna at one time. Which says more about my low opinion of her rather than my zero opinion of him.

      • Marc: The Social Gadfly

        Yes but, seriously who hasn’t fucked Madonna. I mean besides any of us.

      • Phil2u

        Way, way, way, way back, I thought he was very attractive; then, he became himself….. UGH.

  • Henry Auvil

    This is an historic event, if only because an American president agreed to meet with someone who is so obviously his intellectual superior.

  • me myself and I

    Just a few topics Trump wants to discuss:
    1) How to suppress your opponents
    2) How to control the press
    3) How to control the armed forces
    4) Best designs for prisons, torture chambers, and firing squads
    5) Getting the population to live on nothing while sending most of their money to Trump

    • KnownDonorDad

      Or just how to throw the best military parade.

  • Girlgoon

    Of course ! Trump loves to meet all the dictators he admires so much. Putin, Duterte, xing he’s falling all over himself with envy.

  • PhillyProfessor

    Is it true that Trump is planning on asking Kim Jong Un for political asylum, knowing what the Mueller investigation has in store for him? Asking for a friend.

  • John

    If this doesn’t give everyone the heebie jeebies…nothing will. Who do you suppose will push the launch button first?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Make sure to offer Trump and Kim some tea, I hear Polonium Paradise has a wonderful flavour an aroma to it. It would do them wonders.

  • Slippy_World
    • Christopher

      The artist of this cartoon was extremely generous to both of them in the peen department.

  • fuzzybits

    He’ll weasel his way out of it by May.

  • AstroCat

    Oh God….

  • This is not professional. This is something an amateur President with absolutely no foreign policy experience or sense of the importance of his or her office would do. At a minimum, you send your National Security Advisor or Secretary of State to North Korea first — to work out an interim agreement — before you reward a tyrannical dictator with the prestige of a Presidential Summit in Pyongyang. And you do not “tweet” the announcement, this is not the stupendous drama of Nixon in China. Trump thinks he will win the Nobel Peace Prize– what he will end up doing instead is further damage the reputation of the United States of America as a Superpower in this unseemly display of incompetence.

    I wonder if he’ll fly over a couple of planeloads of cash beforehand.

  • anne marie in philly

    what they gonna do, drop their pants and compare dicks?

    • JCF

      {shudder}

      • anne marie in philly
