When Trump speaks off the cuff, sometimes he says things that just leave you shaking your head and wondering what planet he lives on because it sure as hell isn’t this one. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal he claimed to have a “very good relationship” with Kim Jong-Un. Seriously.
President Donald Trump said he “probably” has “a very good relationship” with Kim Jong Un but would not say whether he has spoken to the North Korean leader during an interview with The Wall Street Journal Thursday.“I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un, ” Trump told the Journal in a 45-minute sit-down at the White House. “I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised.”
The president, who in recent weeks has alternated between trading taunts with Kim and expressing optimism for diplomacy with North Korea, would not specify whether he’s spoken directly to Kim.
”I don’t want to comment on it. I’m not saying I have or haven’t. I just don’t want to comment,” Trump said.
Is there anyone in the world capable of believing that to be true? Even the most deluded of sycophants has to shake their head at that and wonder why the hell he would say it. We have a president who either just babbles incoherently like this or, worse, actually believes it to be true. That’s terrifying, isn’t it? It is to me.
