North Korean TV has aired its first footage of the #TrumpKimSummit. Look out for the handshake/salute confusion 55 seconds in.

2. Trump does not give a damn about working for peace

He merely exploits the issue to prop up his sagging criminal presidency.

4. Oh, you know it happened

Remember how discombobulated the conservawhackos got every time Obama met with the leader of another country? If Obama wasn't "apologizing," he was "bowing," and every right wing turd floated up to yammer on about it.

Here's footage of Trump saluting a NoKo officer, and they'll be absolutely silent.

6. Um, I don't see the problem here.

Yes, Trump tried to greet the general with a handshake, then when the general first saluted, Trump changed gears to return the salute, and then the handshake happened.

Trump seemed less flustered than we might have expected/dreaded, adapting rapidly to a variance in protocol. I wonder instead whether the general was supposed to offer a salute, or if he was discombobulated.
