Donald Trump’s Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, likes to travel, and North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong-un, likes to rely heavily on his trusted family members, including his older brother, Kim Jong-chul, and his younger sister, Kim Yo-jong.
In Congress, as a member of the Tea Party Caucus, he represented Charles Koch.
Then he became CIA Director and he went twice to Pyongyang so he could get Trump a Nobel, only that isn’t likely to happen.
Pompeo has just returned to Foggy Bottom (the State Department's HQ) after meeting with Kim Jong-un’s older brother, Kim Jong-chol (https://www.politico.com/story/2018/07/07/pompeo-north-korea-talks-701665; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Jong-chul.
Earlier this year, Kim Jong-un’s younger sister, 30-year old Kim Yo-jong (김여정), the Vice Director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the Workers’ Party of North Korea, conspicuously attended the Winter Olympics in northeast South Korea. When Trump’s senior lackey, Mike Pence, attended those Games, he was seated near the attractive Kim Yo-jong, but because Pence never goes within one hundred feet of a woman who is not his wife, and because Pence likes to look like the fiercest enemy of anyone who doesn’t agree with Trump (especially an enemy with nukes that can attack the United States), Pence refused even to look at Kim Yo-jong.
Speaking to reporters after his recent meeting with Kim Jong-chol, Pompeo called the talks “productive,” but, as the Times reported today, North Korea’s Foreign Ministry accused Trump of pushing a “gangster-like demand for denuclearization.” No doubt, in her role as Kim Jong-un’s Propaganda Chief, Kim Yo-long wrote what the DPRK’s Foreign Ministry said, that Pompeo had made “one-sided and robber-like demands” on the DPRK (https://www.politico.com/story/2018/07/07/pompeo-north-korea-talks-701665).
So we sent associate solitary reporter and chief international correspondent Larry Theis, as well as associate solitary reporter Ko Il-sun, to Pyongyang.
There, Theis and Ko met with Kim Yo-jong. Theis, who is fluent in Korean, fumbled around trying to compliment Kim Yo-jong on her appearance, and, flushed with embarrassment, he turned to Ko, who whispered in his ear, “Com’n, Larry quit foolin’ with this diplomacy crap, just tell Kim Yo-jong that we are both delighted to meet her and that we hope she will convey our warm greetings to her brother.”
Then Kim Yo-jong told Theis and Ko, in fluent English, “Both of you jokers have seen The Interview, with Seth Rogen and James Franco. That movie insulted my brother, so we launched a very effective cyber-attack on Sony Pictures."
“We will never denuke, but we’re going to keep snookering you, just as my brother snookered that yokel, Donald Trump, in Singapore.”
