It's semi-official (pre-nups, you know) but:
Donald and Jong-Un have announced their betrothal.
Complete with their own special song: [YouTube] - "A Very Precious Love"
Doris Day -- nominated for Oscar (1958)
Trump: "I'm gonna sing it to the whole big lonely world"
[And maybe I'll be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. If Obama got one, so should I.]
It's a "very special bond". Sure, they've had their quarrels and said a bunch of really cruel things they obviously didn't mean, but that's only because they love each other so much, and they worry when they're apart that there might be some hanky-panky going on.
For instance, maybe the Donald thought that Jong-Un was having an affair with the President of South Korea. He did spend a fair amount of time gazing at Mr. Moon. And they looked awfully cuddly in that photo. Was it taken before or after a furtive kiss?
And maybe Jong-Un thought Donald was a bit too sweet on Justin Trudeau. Publicly insulting Justin may simply have been Donald's way of reassuring Jong-Un. What other reason could the Donald have for being so nasty about a calendar sweetie who wouldn't hurt a fly (but might get someone else to do it for him)?
The Donald himself is accustomed to being dissed, and he can shovel it right back. So a certain Don Lenihan might want to take cover for a while after his gratuitous evaluation of Trump's mental processes.
When the Donald makes up with Justin -- who wouldn't, eh? -- there could be some heck to pay.
Jong-Un, too has had his share of demonization. Hard to know, though, whether or not it's just western propaganda. Almost any time he's accused of heinous doings, the statement is followed by an admission of lack of verified knowledge.
The Daily Beast lists a tirade of Kim Jong-Un's own bestial tendencies, and then keeps admitting that none of it can be confirmed and some of it was greatly exaggerated.
The Independent too:
Come on, guys. When you're seeking refugee status, you might have to lay it on pretty thick if you want to be pitied enough to be accepted -- all those American citizens sneaking into Canada, for instance? From America? Land of the Free?
So that's no help either in assessing North Korean sins. Even the Donald, with all his diagnosed mental problems, is willing to at least imply an admission to a few US human rights issues.
Well, this was all very exciting. As Maggie Muggins used to say, "I wonder what will happen tomorrow. Tr-la-la-la-la-la-la-la." (CBC Radio 1955)
