How Trump Was Used in Korea

Moon Jae-in is a lifelong, hardcore progressive, which is to say he is a neo-Marxist at heart, though he cloaks it in bland business suits and talk of “peace” and “democracy.” Many of his domestic policies since winning the election to replace impeached Park Geun-hye are standard-issue progressive “reform” assaults, such as imposing sweeping new regulations on private businesses. But nothing he has...

Trump: God’s Gift to the World’s Puny Men

One of the strange but predictable results of Donald Trump’s presidency is that in his ignorance he has found remarkably inventive ways to elevate and aggrandize some of the world’s most absurd and/or dangerous leaders. Leaving aside Vladimir Putin, Trump’s favorite bully, but a thug who was doing just fine without Trump’s help, the list of lousy men whose stock has risen under...

North Korea Dismantling Nukes!!! (in a language in which “dismantling nukes” translates as “Trump cultists are morons”)

Two days ago, there were reports that North Korea has begun dismantling a rocket testing site they had pledged to destroy during Kim Jong-un’s International Respectability Coming Out Party Guest Starring Donald “Big Button” Trump. Rational observers, who do not live for evidence that Trump is the Second Coming — or rather that Jesus Christ was the placeholder for Trump — know that...

Honorable, Smart, Funny Kim Jong-un; and a Tweet from George Washington

Kim Jong-un, whom Donald Trump recently praised more effusively and unqualifiedly than he has ever praised any American president, has, apparently as part of his enthusiastic surrender to Trump’s giant hands and amazing chess mastery, spent the past couple of weeks upgrading his nuclear weapons program and executing an army officer who ordered extra food for his starving troops. Had Barack Obama chosen...

America, This Is Your President

Donald Trump, as many have pointed out, is a megalomaniac and a narcissist. To deny this evaluation at this point is merely to reject the labels of modern psychology, which is fine with me. But to reject the modern labeling is not to deny the underlying facts: Trump is a man intellectually crippled by self-importance and morally distorted by vanity. Here is a...

Why Only Trump Could “Solve” North Korea

Donald Trump and his cult members — sorry, I will never refer to his supporters in any other way again, unless, in a generous mood, I call them “fans” or “idolaters” — are working overtime to spread the word that by solving the North Korean problem forever in one magic meeting, he has accomplished something that previous American presidents were unable or unwilling...

The Day After: Three Reflections on Smallness and Appeasement

Moon Jae-in’s smiling, hugging, champagne glass-clinking lovefest with Kim Jong-un was one of the most shameful moments in modern Korean history. It was also an indication for all the world that Korea’s future is now in very dangerous hands. Donald Trump, always adept at sensing popular weaknesses to exploit for his own benefit, has pounced to cash in on South Korea’s left turn....

Trump Sells Out Friends for Personal Vanity

As part of his complete capitulation to the demands of a tin pot communist dictator — which he and his cultists are trying to frame as an act of negotiating genius — it turns out that Donald the Wonder Idiot also promised Kim Jong-un that he will summarily cancel U.S. participation in the longstanding annual joint military exercises, or “war games,” in which...

Trump Just Got Owned by the Smarter Man

Breaking: Donald Trump proudly showed off a document he signed today with Kim Jong-un, promising a lot of promises, most of them essentially meaningless — except that one of the promises is to help the DPRK work toward a “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” ZOOM IN ON THE TEXT: “President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim...

Singapore Summit: Who’s the Great Negotiator Here?

Fans of Donald Trump like to defend all his stupid, incoherent, or unscrupulous moves by saying, “I’ll assume he knows what he’s doing; after all, he’s a negotiating genius.” Their faith is that whatever Trump appears to be doing on the surface, he is in fact playing some kind of deal-making hardball that will eventually break down and win over any opponent. These...
