“He really stabbed us in the back!”
“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Trump!!”

I’m shocked to hear such a soft spoken gentleman had a heart attack.

That said, I'm just waiting for someone to pipe up that all of these posts are in bad taste (I don't feel that way, FYI). Not a Kudlow fan...Sorry for his family, but I can't say I'm very sympathetic for him...

My grandfather, who worked for the Chicago Sun-Times always said about politicians: "when the heat's on, they go to the hospital." First Milania, now Kudlow.... Hmmmm.

Well, at least Trump didn't try and pull his stupid handshake routine...So far...Kim Jong Un must speak some English, as Trump was talking to him as he approached to shake his hand, and neither of them had earpieces on or anything...And I don't think Trump speaks Korean...

This is strange. Maybe itís the lack of status quo. I still believe we are in for a shitstorm anytime soon. In the meantime gotta keep that 401K fat and happy.

I'll be shocked, SHOCKED, if this turns out to be anything more than a glorified photo-op.

Cuomo has tried to ask Rodman three times if Kim Jong Un understands or speaks English and Rodman would not answer that...Why? Obviously Rodman has met him...So can you just answer whether or not Kim Jong Un speaks English?

Of course Kim Jong speaks English. He went to a fancy boarding school and it's pretty well known that the hypocrite likes American shows. And I'm 100% sure that he speaks better English than Trump, which is not that hard.

OH, remember the whole thing about draining the swamp? Let's see Trump defenders/supporters in this board defend this shit

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump made at least $82 million in outside income last year while serving in the White House, filings show

I know, I was being sarcastic. I assumed he speaks English cause he went to a fancy school in Switzerland...Just funny that he is still wanting his own interpreter there...And he acts like he doesn't speak English...Just wondering if that's a ploy on his part...I can honestly picture him pretending that he doesn't know what Trump is saying at times and Trump just buying it...

John Bolton is at the luncheon with Trump and Kim Jong Un...I wonder what could go wrong? It's never like he's ever flown off the handle or advocated for war...

No, which is why I clearly stated, "Temporary safety nets for those temporarily out of work or disabled and long-term assistance for those permanently disabled are fine."

Scott Jennings might just be the smuggest Trump apologist that CNN puts on the air...Nothing that Trump does will ever convince him to take any sort of stance that is contrary to Trump's...The most he'll say is something like, "Well, I would've phrased that differently..."...And, as usual, he always manages to bring Obama and/or Hillary Clinton into his answers to blame them for every perceived slight...At least Max Boot hit him back a bit...

Nay, Bolton is a great lover of peace and fully supports the North Korean and Iranian regimes. If he's there, the prospect for world peace is in good hands.

I'd like to see the stats on how many people are on welfare in California, Oregon, and Washington, and Arizona, and second, what percentage of those people on welfare...have been on it for more than 5 years.

re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

This is already a win for Kim Jong-un:

- He went and took a stroll in Singapore and people were rightly intrigued and taking pictures, even clapping and everybody was smiling and having fun. In North Korea: "Supreme Leader receives King's welcome in Singapore!"

- And he not only managed what his predecessors coudn't, get a face to face meeting with the US President, but also managed to show that he's being treated as an equal.
