Yeah, I get it. Donald Trump rubs a lot of people the wrong way, including me sometimes. But what's happening in Singapore with a chance at peace and denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is momentous to say the least. Trump, for his part, seems optimistic:
Yet some in #TheResistance seem to be less enthused...
OK, The Palmer Report is just barely above Louise Mensch levels of idiocy. But even the Democrats themselves aren't being very pragmatic in what might be a subconscious hope Trump fails. As Nicholas Kristof notes,
"The letter also insisted on “anywhere, anytime” inspections of suspected North Korean nuclear sites, as well as those linked to its chemical and biological warfare programs.
"It’s almost unimaginable that North Korea will allow such intrusive inspections — any country would resist having an enemy poke around its military bases, underground bomb shelters and border fortifications. So these Democrats are essentially saying that no plausible deal will pass muster."
Let's hope for cooler heads (including Trump's... and Dennis Rodman's of course (what timeline is this???)) to rule the day. Take a break #TheResistance.
