We still don’t know how Donald Trump will treat our cherished allies at the G7 summit, but please no one tell him about the Marshall Plan. Because I have no doubt he’d send Angela Merkel a past-due invoice if he ever found out about it. Luckily his knowledge of world history is pretty much limited to a couple of ‘70s sex tips he managed to glean from his dad’s collection of German Playboys.
But one world leader he’ll never be at loggerheads with again is Kim Jong Un — no matter what Little Rocket Man does.
“He likes testing missiles,” Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for the Group of Seven (G-7) economies summit in France.
“Kim Jong Un has been, you know, pretty straight with me I think,” Trump added. “And we're going to see what's going on.”
He likes testing missiles! I mean, come on! Who doesn’t like testing missiles? It’s a basic human need!
North Korea fired two missiles into the East Sea, apparently in violation of a UN resolution, just hours before Trump dismissed the action as a big nothing-burger. But that’s fine because, you know, beautiful letters.
But Trump has signaled that he is unbothered by the projectiles, pointing to his personal relationship with Kim.
The president said earlier this month that he'd received a “beautiful” letter from Kim, adding that he expected the two men could meet again to discuss denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Why do I get a sick feeling Trump is going to trade Guam to Kim for a jar of Kroger’s spicy kimchi?
Is Trump still chafing your arse-cheeks? Then Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its breathlessly awaited sequel Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the pick-me-up you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And they’re way, way cheaper than therapy.
