Trump and North Korea

What do you bet that Trump is sitting in the residence at the White House dreaming of himself as the Great Peacemaker, about to resolve the Korean War by meeting with the DPRK’s young dictator and congratulating himself for doing what no other President has ever done?

He’s not smart enough to figure out that there’s a reason no other President has done so: it provides the dictator with legitimacy. If that’s all it does it’s bad enough, but if he somehow tries to negotiate an agreement with Kim Jong Un let’s hope to God that there are professionals in the room at the same time. Given the State Department just watched its North Korea expert retire 10 days ago, I’m not sure who’s qualified. Certainly not Tillerson.

What a freakin’ mess.
