The drama and trauma last night was all about this part:
Okay, it was a bad answer. Donald Trump isn’t a politician. Bill Clinton would have had a smooth answer ready to go. Hillary would have lied. Obama would have stuttered. On the other hand, if it were any other POTUS in that circumstance they never would have been asked such an impertinent question.
It helps if you think of Trump as a hostage negotiator. The Norks have barricaded themselves and are holding millions of their own people as hostages. They are heavily armed and extremely paranoid. The military option would kill tens of thousands of people at a minimum, and if nukes are used that number could easily go over a million. Not to mention that the last time we sent out military in there it didn’t end well.
So how do we solve the Korea problem peacefully?
There is really only one option – someone has to talk Kim Jong Un into freeing his people.
Enter Donald Trump. What is the first thing a hostage negotiator wants to do? He wants to establish communication and develop a rapport. Trump did something no other POTUS has ever done – he reached out to Kim personally and made friends with him. He was positive and reassuring.
And every single thing Trump said publically about Kim was positive.
Now let’s say you are Kim Jong Un and you are watching FOX news on your satellite system and you see Trump telling people that you are the evilest man on the planet. Wouldn’t that make you wonder if Trump was sincere?
SO WHY THE FUCK IS THE MEDIA TRYING TO FORCE TRUMP TO BADMOUTH KIM???
Do they WANT a nuclear war?
What is more important, justice for the dead or freedom for the living?
To be honest I am not convinced that KJU is really in control in NK. He certainly wasn’t in control during the Korean War because he hadn’t been born yet. The leader of NK back then was Kim il-Sung, KJU’s grandfather. Then his dad ran the franchise for a while. When Kim Jong-il died seven years ago KJU was the successor, but a lot of people believe that the military is really in charge.
So we can’t be sure where everything that happened the last seven years was done in KJU’s name or on his orders.
I have never in my life seen the media try to sabotage a president’s diplomatic initiatives.
That’s all I got for now. I want to get some sleep before the IGR drops.
