Oh my gosh you guys, 2018 is INSANE.
If Dennis Rodman sporting a MAGA hat and tearing up on CNN about what a”great day” the highly-anticipated Trump-Kim summit was is not the most 2018 thing we’ve seen all year, I don’t know what is.
To add to the spectacle of our reality star President meeting with the millennial-aged dictator he’s partly dealt with diplomatically via Twitter, we have now also learned that Trump brought along with him a fake movie preview of how he and Kim could save the Korean peninsula together.
The Blaze reports:
According to Reuters, Trump told reporters that he urged Kim and his North Korean officials to watch a short video produced by a Los Angeles-based company called Destiny Pictures. The president said Kim and his team sat around an iPad to watch the video, which was produced in Korean and English.
The White House screened the video for the media at a news conference following the conclusion of the Trump-Kim meetings. Trump told reporters that he thought Kim “loved it.”
Trump absolutely would say Kim “loved it.” And you know what? I’m willing to bet Kim loved it.
The video featured dramatic shots of happy Korean people and their beautiful culture cut with images of industry and thriving capitalistic progress. It spoke of the select few who had the power and the strength to make a real difference and bring true peace and prosperity to the Korean peninsula, cutting between majestic shots of Trump and Un.
“Two men. Two leaders. One destiny,” the narrator says.
One clip shows the oft-referenced nighttime satellite image of the peninsula, in which North Korea is conspicuously dark amid the surrounding nations aglow with energy grids and infrastructure. Dramatically, as the camera pans over, North Korea lights up with the promise of this moment in history.
Kim is asked if he will take this “one chance that may never be repeated … to show vision and leadership — or not.”
The wrong choice, of course, is dramatically demonstrated with images of launching missiles and the devastation of the Korean War.
Again, Trump and Kim watched this on an iPad together. Can you imagine sitting next to the man threatening to blow your country to the next galaxy through a well-produced fake movie preview?
“Can history be changed? Will the world embrace this change? And when could this moment in history begin?” He was asked.
“It comes down to a choice — on this day, in this time, at this moment. The world will be watching, listening, anticipating, hoping.”
Trump is entirely in this guy’s head!
From everything we know about the Kim dynasty, this is an absolutely brilliant–albeit surreal and bizarre–way to appeal to the massive ego of Kim Jong Un. Trump is laying out in front of him all the incredible opportunities for wealth and industry and opportunity, and to assume the title of a savior of his nation.
Both these men know what the US could do to North Korea if Kim blinks–but Trump may have hit the perfect tone to talk down this madman and his crazy legacy of tyranny. The left has little to say about the apparent peace agreement struck between their worst enemy and the brutal dictator they were defending just months ago when Trump began his game of hardball.
Anyway, on to the best thing on the Internet you will see all day:
