Trump's Letter to Kim Jung Un: Thank You For the Beautiful Gesture of Releasing the Hostages. One Day You Will Have to Come and Visit Our Majestic Nuclear Arms Forces, Or Perhaps We Can Arrange For Them to Visit You.

My thoughts on all this:

1. I never thought North Korea would change and I thought we were being played, by both North Korea and the peace-at-any-cost South Korean president, from Jump Street.

2. I did worry that Trump was getting too optimistic and breaking the cardinal rule of the service industry, by overpromising. He didn't actually make specific over-promises, but his optimism about this meeting certainly signaled that we could expect Great Deals. I think a lot more reserve was warranted.

3. I was worried about that because I feared that Trump, by getting too personally invested in the idea of a deal with North Korea, would show up with too weak a negotiating position and give away too much.

4. However, now that he's thrown cold water on any meeting or deal, I'm less worried. It's of course a central maxim of negotiating that you have to be able to walk away from the table; Trump has done that.

That doesn't mean everything's fixed, obviously; we're back to the status quo ante of military violence being on the table. But this does reassure me that he's not so eager for the deal he's necessarily going to get rolled like three presidents before him.

He still might, though.

Now let me turn to the topic of the day: the cucks.

Mollie Hemingway (Not A Cuck) made this hard-to-dispute point:

Everything she said there is accurate. Now, I don't think that "DC folks" were entirely wrong to worry about this (I worried about it too), but then, DC folks didn't just merely worry about this possibility as I did: they were giddily, smugly certain that this is how it would all shake out.

I had some worries; they had some firm premonitions about the future.

Notice she just says the DC folks got this wrong, as they get almost everything wrong. And although she doesn't say this: We can guess they got this wrong because they're Trump Deranged. Anything Trump does is wrong, or will turn out wrong. Always. Every time.

She does not "blame" the withdrawal from negotiations on the media. I mean: She wrote only 25 words. It's not hard to look at 25 words and see that nowhere within them does she "blame" the Media for the cancellation of the June 12th summit.

There are only 25 words to scan. This isn't hard.

But notice how this Wan Cuck deliberately reconfigures her statement into one he can mock:

She didn't blame the MSM for the breakdown in the negotiations -- obviously. She blamed them for exactly what they did -- being smugly, arrogantly wrong. For the billionth time.

One quick word about this "TimoDC" character, Tim Miller: he's an obnoxiously useless NeverTrumper whose bio describes him as "Crooked Media's token Republican."

And what's Crooked Media? Crooked Media is a far-left agitation site that hosts the podcast "Pod Save America," featuring the following notorious Obama Frat Aides:

Jon Favreau, Obama's speechwriter;

Dan Pfeiffer, senior adviser to Obama;

Tommy Vietor, an Obama NSC spokesman (and the guy who said "That was two years ago dude"); and

Jon Lovett, a TV writer who wrote speeches for John Kerry and then won a contest to pen a speech for Obama, and then wound up "working closely" with Jon Favreau and David Axelrod.

This is the crowd this "conservative" is running with now -- the gang that brought us the Iran Echo Chamber.

And, big surprise, he finds that his sympathies and animosities are now aligned with, get this, the general direction to which his paycheck points.

Paycheck Conservatism

It's not just for cucks any longer.

Oh wait, it still is.

Sorry to keep harping on my own smug prediction that the NeverTrumpers would soon find their next paycheck from liberals, and furthermore, they would find their transitioning from "conservative" (pretend) to "progressive" a fairly easy one.

I'll stop pointing it out when I stop being right every ***damn time.
