North Korea’s tyrant met with Donald Trump today in Hanoi, not very far from the Hanoi Hilton, where the late John McCain was tortured during America’s foolish war against the North Vietnamese.
Naturally, associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones was there during their meeting, along with associate solitary reporter Ko Il-sun, who is based in Seoul. Ko is fluent in Korean and thus fully understood the nuances in their conversation.
“Donald,” Kim began, speaking through an interpreter, “in my country, if someone disrespects me or crosses me, we have very efficient ways of dealing with that.”
Kim was referring to how happy he was that he ordered the execution in December 2013 of his uncle, Jang Song-thaek, and of all the other brutal purges which he has orchestrated to keep himself in power — and of the untold number of political prisoners in the hermit state.
“So why, Donnie, have you not dealt effectively with your former fixer-man, Michael Cohen, who spilled the beans on you today in the Hearings of the Century in Washington?”
“Well, my friend,” Trump replied, somewhat testily, “that’s why I admire you so much as my friend and because you are such a strong and effective leader.”
“Once I get your kind of power in my country, I will pay homage to you and to my other close friends, including Vlad Putin.”
Back in Washington, Trump Loyalist-in-Chief Sarah Huckabee announced that Trump will, upon returning to his swamp in Washington, nominate his close allies and Freedom Caucus zealots Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, both of whom tried unsuccessfully to discredit Cohen today, to his inner circle, Jordan to replace Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and Meadows to be his Deputy Chief of Staff.
