Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

North Korean officials did not show up to a planned meeting with US officials at the demilitarized zone Thursday, where they were expected to continue discussions on repatriating the remains of Americans killed during the Korean War, a senior US official tells CNN. There was no call or explanation from North Korean officials on why they skipped the meeting. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ignored a question about the apparent snub when asked by reporters traveling with him in Brussels on Thursday.

Kim said the American remains have all been cremated.
And he will gladly send Trump all the ashes.

Just don't analyze them.

Those thousands of parents who came up to Trump during his rallies are going to be disappointed.

... North Korean officials did not show up to a planned meeting with US officials ...

When Sec of State Pompeo went to North Korea a few days ago, he thought he was going to meet with Leader Kim to continue the talks Pres Trump started.

Instead, he was shuffled off to attend endless dinners with lower-level officials, and little, if any, serious discussions.

It's sad to learn that who you're dealing with is someone that doesn't deal.

Dear Stable Genius,

No Nobel 'Please' Prize.
No Nobel Cheese Prize.
One Banal Tease Prize.

Trump got Fleeced Prize.

Rocket Man pantses Dotard on the world stage again.

Talk about Amateur Hour!

It's been said for quite a while now . . . from the beginning actually . . . that once Kim got the recognition he wanted from a U.S. president it was going to end like this.

And sure enough, it did.

I guess we shouldn't laugh about it but since it's Trump, I'm not even trying to wipe that grin off my face.

So much winning!!!!!!!

If you're "Little Kim" that is.

Dotard got played like a fiddle... again!
Too bad the alt-right morons didn't see this coming, the rest of us did.

What's sadder is the idiot in chief and his flock of deplorables who couldn't see this obvious outcome coming a long way off.

Seems like Kim wasn't impressed by Trump's tremendousness.

Which makes Kim smarter than 100% of Trump's trumpeteers.

Are you tired of winning yet?

So why didn't the very stable genius see that coming like every other president did?

Because he is a desperate publicity hound which is a very bad quality to have in a CiC.

Good job GOP. You built that.

The Dotard still hopes to earn a Nobel Prize in Sports by cleverly negotiating a tee time at his Scottish golf course. Trump's attempt to get a 'twilight rate' price for an afternoon time went awry, so he will tee off at 9pm...

I really wanted an real, enforceable agreement with North Korea. I still do. At a minimum, I'm hoping there can be ongoing talks.

Let's also hope the meeting with Pres Putin has a better outcome for the United States.

For there to be a deal, superpowers need to have credibility on security agreements. They do not.

Solved the whole Korean nuclear crisis with one visit!

Rest easy everyone.

Humpy's got this.

Trump already declared he got these bodies back. Oops.

Thankfully his supporters will still believe he has. Speaking of, where are the DR Conservatives on this one?

Kim went to visit a potato farm instead of meeting Pompeo.

I bet Kim sends back the cremated remains of his outhouse.

What is Donald doing to America? smh.

You say Pompeo, I say potato, Pompeo, potato, let's call the whole thing off!

Oh, but if we call the whole thing off we'd have to part with Trump's hopes for a Nobel Peace Prize.

"Let's also hope the meeting with Pres Putin has a better outcome for the United States."

Dream ON. ~ LOL

Trump's meeting with Putin to get his doggie treat for sowing the seeds of discord and unrest in Germany and Great Briton.

Next on the agenda ~ Putin's step-by-step orders to proceed with the destruction of NATO.

However, when Trump gets home, first he'll have to deal with that stink bomb Mueller just dropped in his lap. That "fake news" thing just lost it's oomph.

Pompeo will get blamed when this FAILS!

After Obama.

NATO needs to inform Trump that they will stay vigilant and that they will increase their spending on defense but will expel the United States. I believe that is a message that would resound loudly and powerfully throughout Europe and Great Britain. We allow this orange lunatic to represent us on the world stage then we should expect the consequences.

#27 | Posted by danni at 2018-07-14 12:12 PM | Reply

The final result of this stupid meeting between Trump and Kim will be a big fat mushroom cloud for someone!

Count on it!
