I think Bob Woodward might be starting to loose it. On MJ this morning he was suggesting that the meeting with NK has been a well executed trump plan arranged through back channel communication, and trump sudden announcement wasn't impromptu, but a the brilliant idea of trump to appear as if he just decided to do it on a whim. Woodward appears to be in the camp that trump is a brilliant master mind that knows exactly what he is doing at all times, and he just playing a role of a clueless & reactionary president to throw people off.... Naw, I am not buying any of that spy novel stuff.
Yea, Woodward really started to go downhill during the Bush years and then went full on conspiracy theorist during the Obama years.
He had this switch turn where he went from the fiery journalist who helped take down Nixon to a right-wing demagogue who thought everything Obama did was a vast conspiracy. I guess that's what happens when you get in the Fox "News" bubble like he did.
It's really quite sad when you think about it.
With regards to the whole Summit of the Narcissistic Sociopaths - I just have a hard time thinking anything substantial will come from it.
North Korea is not going to give up their nuclear weapons no matter what. Donald's handlers obviously understand that, but Donald can't help himself and has likely become convinced that he and he alone will be the person who finally solves the decades old problem on the Korean Peninsula.
The only way I think that happens is if Donald recognizes North Korea's right to be a nuclear state, which would expose his weakness at negotiating. He's set himself up for a trap and Kim Jong-un knows it.
