Wtf why is he allowed to roam around g20? Why is he even invited? He’s working so hard to make america irrelevant as a global power.

While he’s not entirely wrong, he’s also ignoring the fact that the border is separating two countries that are literally at war.

I am sure Kim Jong was laughing himself silly!

Now he is thinking: “Where can I go for vacation?”

As a millenial, I completely understand that reference. I hope I’m not old. But I fear it’s happening whether I like it or not.

Incidentally, 45’s tweets make a lot more sense if you add LEL or olololooloooolll to the end of them. Try it!

Barbra Streisand? Isn’t there a better reference poignantly calling out to you…?

Meh, I was a 70s kid.

Send In The Clowns is much better, but not quite on point. :wink:

Subtext: This is a story of unrequited love between Kim and Trump.

That loud noise you heard was the sound of thousands of intelligence officers at the CIA/NSA/etc banging their heads on the desk when Trump said he “didn’t know” where Kim Jong-un was.

There’s hundreds of thousands of people and trillions of dollars of infrastructure dedicated to answer questions just like that. All he’d have to do is ask.

(Plus, all he’d have to do is ask me. When paranoid Kim travels, he only goes by his Bond-villain armored train and its always publicized when he does so. If he was out of the country, even I would know it.)

But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns
Don’t bother they’re here

Yeah, I grew up in the 70s and 80s as well, and my parents loved musicals.

And the Twitter diplomacy becomes a PR coup as news outlets see who can suck their own dick the hardest.
