‘Tripling down on stupid’: Internet buries Trump in ridicule after he tweets a ‘very nice note’ from Kim Jong-un

Published

The Washington Post on Thursday reported that North Korean officials had ditched a planned meeting with American officials to discuss returning the remains of U.S. soldiers killed during the Korean War.

Despite this, President Donald Trump is still trying to project confidence that things are going well with his efforts to get North Korea to dismantle its entire nuclear arsenal.

In a Thursday afternoon tweet, the president posted a copy of a “very nice note” that he had received from Kim, who praised Trump for his “strong will and sincere efforts” in improving relations between the U.S. and North Korea.

North Korea so far has not actually done anything to dismantle its nuclear weapons — and it has actually used increasingly hostile rhetoric to describe American officials in recent weeks, such as when it called out Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for employing “gangster-like” tactics during negotiations.

The most humiliating episode, however, came two days ago when Kim Jong-un reportedly skipped a meeting with Pompeo in order to go to a potato farm.

Given all this, Twitter users immediately buried Trump in ridicule for touting the supposed “progress” that he’s making in getting Kim to give up his nukes.

Published

Trump loyalist Corey Lewandowski testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday and it quickly devolved into a circus in which the former Trump campaign manager refused to answer basic questions from Democrats.

During the hearing, the House Judiciary Democrats sent out a tweet accusing the White House of orchestrating a coverup of the president's actions as outlined by special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

However, many Twitter users went on to hammer the Democrats for purportedly treating the constantly obfuscating and stalling Lewandowski with kid gloves.
