KingMidget's Ramblings

Pull up a chair. Let's talk.

The Best Example

Of the divide that exists in this country.  The writers and commenters on the right wing blog I follow on a daily basis think this video is just great.

When I first heard about it, I was convinced it was fake. Although reputable news organizations were starting to report its existence, I couldn’t believe it was true.  We would soon found out this was all made up and wasn’t the mainstream media stupid for falling for it.

And then the Washington Post reported that it was shown to reporters in Singapore.  The reporters thought it was North Korean propaganda until the video was over and Trump came out and confirmed that it was produced at his request and shared with Kim Jong-Un.  So, this was real and intended to accomplish something … other than get a passing grade in a 6th grade video production class.  And the right-wing is eating it up.

Give up hope.  There’s no reason left to have any.

    I was similarly stunned by it. Like you, I thought, “This can’t be real.” These are very strange and disturbing times.

      If the Obama Administration produced something like this I’d be pissed. That the right wing adores this just … is stunning and says something about the kind of world they want to live and the kind of leader they want. And what it says about them is not good.

    Trump is determined to get a Nobel Peace Prize no matter the cost. He’s got to one-up Obama.

    I’m building an underground bunker, and I’ll come back out when things are back to normal … If things ever get back to normal. 😳

    As horrifying as this is, I do give his staff some credit for realizing that having him show Kim a video meant less time that he could babble on about incoherent nonsense. Maybe going forward, they’ll just send pre-recorded videos to everyone he meets with.

    He can spend more time golfing, and we can avoid him starting World War III with some ill-considered bravado. Everyone wins!.
