President Trump’s bro-love affair with Kim Jong-un may be at an end. Intending to troll Joe Biden, Trump subtweeted at Kim, in response to North Korea calling Biden a “rabid dog.”
“Joe Biden may be Sleepy and Very Slow, but he is not a ‘rabid dog,'” Trump tweeted. “He is actually somewhat better than that, but I am the only one who can get you where you have to be. You should act quickly, get the deal done. See you soon!”
Trump also once again cancelled joint military exercises with South Korea in order to throw Pyongyang a bone toward further negotiations, which ended rather abruptly in the last round. This drew in response some impressive yawns from the North Koreans.
We are no longer interested in such talks that bring nothing to us. As we have got nothing in return, we will no longer gift the U.S. president with something he can boast of, but get compensation for the successes that President Trump is proud of as his administrative achievements.

Oh how the tables have turned. Instead of Kim’s breathless love letters and embraces, now they simply ask “what have you done for me lately?” Trump has been kicked to the curb with no ring or even a rose to show for it.
I was hopefully optimistic at one point that Trump’s combination of carrots and sticks would bring the North Koreans to heel, but all I’ve seen is lots and lots of carrots, while Kim has continued his nuclear and ICBM efforts with barely a gas station stopover.
Frankly, it’s embarrassing to the United States to have such an abject failure of foreign policy. Why the president continues to flirt with such an adversary, I don’t know. I’d rather he threaten nuclear annihilation, like a few years ago, and go back to calling Kim “Rocket Man” before their whirlwind fever dance began.
Let’s bury this effort and file it under “lying gold-diggers” so we never make this mistake again. Mr. President, take Kim off your dance card and strike a line through his name in your little black book. The bromance is officially dead.
