Kim Cuckolds Trump by Inviting Assad … Courting Putin

Posted by Anthony L. Hall

It’s demeaning enough that President Trump plans to travel all the way to Singapore just to “get to know” the genocidal dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong-un.

But it seems Kim is willfully insulting Trump. For only this explains Kim making such a show of fraternizing with the genocidal dictator of Syria, Bashir al-Assad, with whom Trump is engaged in “kinetic” hostilities.

After all, this is rather like Roosevelt traveling all the way to Casablanca in 1943 not to strategize with Churchill, but to fraternize with Antonescu (of Romania).

Not to mention that this is the same Trump who ridiculed President Obama as a disrespected laughingstock when Chinese President Xi Jinping failed to roll out the red carpet for his state visit.  Trump insisted that, if any world leader ever disrespected him like that, he would order Air Force One to return home immediately.

But it’s arguable that no world leader has ever disrespected any US president more than Kim is disrespecting Trump. And he’s in this untenable and hypocritical position all because of his delusional bid for a Nobel Peace Prize.

President Bashar al-Assad of Syria plans to visit North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, the North’s state-run news media said on Sunday. …

If Mr. Assad were to visit Pyongyang, it would be the first time that Mr. Kim hosted a meeting with another head of state in the North Korean capital.

Trust me, none of Trump’s predecessors would have been so stupid as to find himself in this position. In fact, each of them shunned overtures from Kim and his father to participate in the kind of nuclear circus Trump is now orchestrating with Barnumesque zeal.

And none of them would have countenanced the kind of rolling humiliation Kim is subjecting Trump to, not least because none of them had Trump’s habit of putting lipstick on a pig and calling it Miss America.

But Kim must think Trump is little more than a doormat masquerading as a shrew. For only this explains Kim making quite a show of entertaining overtures from Trump’s superpower frenemies, namely Xi of China and Putin of Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invited North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to travel to Russia in September. …

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who visited Pyongyang last week, passed the North Korean leader an invitation from Mr Putin to visit Russia during its Eastern Economic Forum, which is held in Vladivostok every year.

And this comes in the afterglow of Kim traveling to China (on two occasions) to visit with Xi.

Mind you, I find it utterly stupefying that these major world leaders are suddenly vying for Kim’s attention … as if he’s the homecoming queen each would like to take to the high-school prom. For more on this, I refer you to such commentaries as “North Korea’s Nuclear Tests Is Tail Wagging the US Dog … Again,” May 26, 2009, and “North Korea Craving Attention Dennis Rodman Can’t Give,” September 19, 2013.

Even more stupefying, though, is that it seems “honorable” Kim can do nothing at this point to offend Trump. After all, he’s whining that he doesn’t like that his agreement to hold their “historic” summit has emboldened Kim to fraternize with his frenemies and enemies alike. Yet Trump is still chasing after him like a lovesick puppy.

Kim has clearly tamed this shrew. #Cuck[old]Sucker!
