This excellent ’toon is very different from the excellent ’toon by Mike Luckovich, but it also makes a similar point about the likelihood Trump will AGAIN be outsmarted by someone half his age and twice as smart, so a similar comment is appropriate. Kim Jong Un is 36. Trump is 72. The last time they met, Trump literally got played by a brutal dictator (though, in fairness, being twice as smart as Donald Trump is a pretty low bar).
Now we also learn (from the Rupert Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal, that when Trump agreed to stop joint military training exercises with Japan and South Korea, without telling those two close allies, it was in defiance of his closest advisors, because PUTIN had suggested it.
Now we also learn that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (Russian equivalent of our Secretary of State), one of the high-level Russians to whom TRUMP GAVE TOP SECRET CLASSIFIED INTELLIGENCE IN THE OVAL OFFICE will also be there in Hanoi, Vietnam, for the summit.
What could possibly go wrong?
What will Putin tell Trump to give away this time?
