Trump Played Kim Jong Un This Crazily Intense Video at Meeting

Source: The Daily Beast



Donald Trump apparently showed Kim Jong Un a crazy video during their meeting that would have been more at home in an episode of The Apprentice than at an important diplomatic meeting. Over images of Trump and Kim, a dramatic voiceover intones: “Two men, two leaders, one destiny. A story about a special moment in time when a man is presented with one chance that may never be repeated. What will he choose? To show vision and leadership—or not?” The video ends with what appears to be a series of bomb explosions, hinting at North Korea’s fate if Kim squanders his talks with the U.S. Trump showed the video to the gathered media ahead of his press conference and said he showed it to Kim. “I think he loved it,” said Trump. “We didn’t have a big screen like you [the media] have the luxury of having, we didn’t need it because we had it on a cassette and an iPad.”

4. What looks like Rodman dunking a ball?...

How does that even belong?

This is not anything even close to normal not even the insane normal we’ve come to expect.

And then I can’t believe that’s what I took away from it. I’m going back to bed with a gallon of vodka and an ounce.

5. The best thing that could come out of this whole deal is...

The best thing that could come out of this whole deal is if Trump, Kim Jong Un, and Dennis Rodman form a Rush cover band called the Xanadudes and sell out the Calgary Stampede.

7. Trump sees North Korea as a vast real estate opportunity.

I saw a clip of Trump this morning talking about North Korea’s beautiful beaches and how great some condos would be there. He’s probably already negotiating exclusive rights to a North Korean Trump Hotel and Condominium project right on the best beach. Everything he does is about money for himself and his greedy family. Bloodsuckers, all of them.

8. That was a joke right???

That was something from the Onion correct? There is no way that was really shown at a high level diplomatic meeting?

Come on, really?

It reminded me of something out of the 80s movie "Running Man"

And "cassette"? He really is stuck in the 80s. Did he play him his favorite mix tape too?

What have we become?

And BTW, if you think this was bad, just try to watch the entire press conference without getting upset.
One word, Condos...enjoy.

19. And in immediate response...

Kim Jong Un threw all the interpreters out of the room, played the Pee Tape, laid Trump's North Korean Intelligence file on the table, and asked one simple question: "What are you going to give me to not upload all of this to the Internet tonight?"

20. Nicolle Wallace played part of it on her show

this afternoon. She was flabbergasted. Her producers showed an insert of her during the clip they were playing of the video and she was covering her face with paper as it played. She had the staff show Trump talking about how when he was watching NK launch missiles and them slam into the sand, Trump's first thought was what great beaches and what a great place for a condo. She was so non-plussed, she showed that clip 3 times.

Elise Jordan went on to say that was is a window into how Trump thinks about everything as a chance to enrich himself/family/business.
