Trump Loses Again

I never liked Robert de Niro as an actor--it's all just mugging for the camera.  I'd rather watch Jerry Lewis.  But you gotta admit he's right on Trump.  I mean there is nothing too low for this charlatan, including sucking up to the world's meanest dictator.  And for what?  Getting a declaration that the funny little fat guy is going to denuclearize Korea.  Who cares.  Bring it on.  Now, Obama, there was a real negotiator.  He knew how to give billions of dollars of paybacks and benefits to Iran and Korea, and so far we haven't had a war.  If only he had been able to run for a third term.  If only, like FDR, he could have been President-For-Life!  I mean, when it comes down to it, who needs popular elections when all of Hollywood and the Media know right from wrong, what's up and what's not.....

    I have read and contemplated just enough of Korean history and the involvement of the United States in that history to become aware of just how inscrutable it is and how abject my ignorance is, despite my studied interest; yet, call it informed intuition, I sense that the conversation which Trump and Kim had in that room with no known notes or recordings might have ventured into realms that would get both of them in deep trouble, impeachment or even life-threatening trouble, with their respective henchmen back home. Trump seemed to hint at it when he expressed the hope that U.S. troops in South Korea might someday come home. One wonders. I doubt that Mr. de Niro has the capacity to wonder and to hope.
