White House press corps evicted from hotel ahead of North Korea summit

HANOI, Vietnam — The White House press corps was evicted from its workspace here Tuesday as a red carpet was rolled out at the same hotel to welcome North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for his nuclear summit with President Donald Trump.

The Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs tweeted Tuesday morning that the reporters who cover Trump would be relocated from their planned staging ground at the Melia Hotel — including a 200-seat ballroom and stand-up spots for broadcast reporters — to an international media center.

“You must go now! This way,” a Vietnamese security officer barked at members of the press corps in the hotel lobby Tuesday morning.

The forced move was highly unusual because the White House had approved of and supported the use of the space by media who cover the president.

It was not immediately clear who made the decision to boot the White House reporters: North Korea, Vietnam, the U.S. or a combination of those governments.

Kim and Trump are meeting this week for the second time in a year to discuss a possible denuclearization of North Korea.

1. While not ideal

My understanding is that the site has had only a short time to prepare and this could be less nefarious and more of a screw up. I am sure we will get plenty of noise from the event in any case.

Eviction would not happen without big sneaky, stinky OK from the KGOP republican Draft-dodger-in-Chief, Comrade Dirty Donny.

6. Maybe Pooty Poot is showing up for a threesome?

He's into SECRET BEHIND CLOSED DOORS skulking around, too.

Fascists of a feather are flocking together.

8. I think you're onto something....

Kim doesn't want any witnesses to the "comings and goings" in that hotel...

Did you see that the Russian "diplomat" KrysiliK (can't spell it) just happens to be in Hanoi now also ...same guy that Trump met with in the Oval Office after the Comey firing....

I think Trump will be played like a violin by these guys...he's waaaaayyyyy out of his league.

KGOP republican style.

Watch out America. Skullduggery is afoot.

14. "Kim doesn't want any witnesses to the "comings and goings" in that hotel..."

Neither does the idiot-in-chief or putin. In fact, trump's new privacy may provide an Epstein-ish opportunity to watch golden showers, etc. My guess is that the First Floozy stayed home.

10. Privacy for in-&-out buggery (instead of burgers); PLUS



no doubt Sergey Kislyak has special instructions from el Putino for el Cretino.

Truly ...... may God bless America, now and forever.

15. I wonder if putin sent his advance team to set up cameras in the

Penthouse?

Trump doesn't have a clue about what he is doing. He's just trying to steal headlines from Cohen's testimony and the other impending failures.
