The Poser Prez swings and misses in Vietnam

When donald trump's much-ballyhooed summit with North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un wrapped up last weekend, it was crystal-clear once more that he sucks as a deal-maker.

tRump was hoping to come home with some kind of deal he could crow about. The two leaders had been widely expected to come to an agreement whereby KJU would scrap--or at least mothball--some part of North Korea's nuclear program and trump, in exchange, would roll back some sanctions.

The theory being that if the two "concessions" were at least roughly proportional, trump and his despotic man-crush could both proclaim a win-win and they could toast one another at the awesome fete which was supposed to have capped off the whole charade.

It didn't happen. Neither the North Koreans, nor team trump had done the homework that would have made such an outcome even remotely possible.

The joint American-South Korean announcement that made the cessation of joint military exercises official did nothing to make Kim more willing to deal.

The announcement merely helped to cement the belief on the part of most Americans that trump gave away the store on the issue of the war games and whether or not they'd continue.

The majority of Americans who declined to swill trump's nasty Kool Aid have known since before the election that his supposed skill as a negotiator was nothing more than an act.

It's instructive to remember that before this debacle in Hanoi there was trump's groveling and ass-kissing in Helsinki.

With each spectacular failure of trump's seat-of-the-pants, incompetent forays into foreign policy, more and more Americans--including many who voted for this malevolent moron--are seeing him for who he truly is.

A petty, hateful con man who hasn't the slightest clue on how to carry out even the simplest of Presidential tasks.

This is a man who shouldn't be trusted with a shopping list for a trip to Kroger's. Much less with negotiating deals with the likes of Putin or Kim Jong Un.
