Shame we can't ask these 36,574 Americans what THEY think of Donald Trump's photo op
Thirty-six thousand, five hundred and seventy four Americans died fighting the Korean War, trying to turn back the advancing Communist forces from North Korea, led by Kim Il Sung, whose grandson met with Donald Trump this week.
I wonder what they would make of our president's photo op? I wonder if they would view it with the light, laughing, give-the-guy-chance air that the president's unflappable supporters manage to maintain, in spite of everything. I wonder how they would view the supposed deal that was made? I wonder how much they would trust the North Koreans? I wonder how they would view insulting our long-time allies, such as Canada, which fought beside us in Korea, and then running to lick the boots of a madman and murderer? I wonder what they would feel about a president so gullible as to celebrate these empty lines as something significant?
It's a shame we can't ask them. I sure know what I think.
