Trump says North Korea is no longer a threat, you can sleep easy!



President Trump says that there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. That's a relief!

Trump, in tweets that began as Air Force One made an early-morning landing, declared America’s “biggest and most dangerous problem” all but resolved. The deal he struck with Kim, he said, meant there was “no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea,” and “everybody can now feel much safer.”

“President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem. No longer — sleep well tonight!” the president wrote.

This obviously untrue statement was widely ridiculed. In an extremely rare turnabout, it was Democrats who spoke the truth. Chuck Schumer, who is normally one of the worst of the worst, said it correctly:

“What planet is the president on?” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said during remarks on the Senate floor. “Saying it doesn’t make it so. North Korea still has nuclear weapons. It still has ICBMs. It still has the United States in danger. Somehow President Trump thinks when he says something it becomes reality.”

Other Democrats picked the President to pieces:

Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), meanwhile, said on Twitter that Trump was being “truly delusional,” noting that North Korea has “the same arsenal today as 48 hours ago.”

Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) also mocked Trump, saying on Twitter: “One trip and it’s ‘mission accomplished,’ Mr. President?”

“North Korea is a real and present threat,” Schiff said.

Schiff, who I also despise, is correct.

Richard N. Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said that “the summit changed nothing.”

“Worse yet, overselling the summit makes it harder to keep sanctions in place, further reducing pressure on NK to reduce (much less give up) its nuclear weapons and missiles,” Haass said on Twitter.

Haas is a former Bushie, who, like the others, I also normally despise. But this time he's correct.

Trump, meanwhile, again criticized the media for producing Fake News.

But how can people believe the President when he himself, today, created his own fake news? If Obama had one meeting with the North Korean dictator, bowed to him, and said that the threat was over, all Republicans would be mocking him. But when Trump does almost exactly the same thing, his sycophantic fans clap and cheer.

It's so much like 1984--one day citizens are told that EastAsia is the enemy. The next they are told that EastAsia is their friend. Trump's sudden turnabout is just like that. And the frightening thing is that some of his supporters believe it, are actually so invested in him that they are engaging in doublethink.

But what is worse is that his authority as president is eroded. Every time the President lies, fewer and fewer people believe him. Every time he says that we are building a border wall right now, when we're not, he loses some supporters. Every time he says that Mexico will pay for a border wall, when he has never even offered a plan to accomplish this, he loses support.

And now he has declared "Peace in our time!" minus the umbrella, and minus the details of, you know, an actual agreement, stating exactly what is meant by "denuclearization" and how and when North Korea will comply.

The fact is that there is no agreement beyond a vague statement of principles, and if the parties don't come to an agreement, or if they do and North Korea cheats (as is likely), then Trump's words about the threat being over and Kim Jong Un being "loved by his people" will come back to haunt him.

The worst effect of all is the moral hollowing out of the Republican Party, of those who have anchored their reputations to a man who, while having undeniably having done some good things, only has casual relations with the truth (among other things).

I've just realized where I've seen this all before.

Trump is the GOP's Bill Clinton.

San Rafael, in wealthy Marin County just north of San Francisco, is building a bike path near a new train line.

Can someone please tell John McCain that he can resign now?


June 1st has come and passed. Everyone can breathe a sign of relief. Under Arizona law, if John McCain had vacated office before June 1st ("vacated" meaning "died"), there would be a special election in November to replace him. But having passed this June deadline, if McCain resigns he can be replaced by an appointee of the governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, a conservative Republican, and this appointee will serve until 2020.
