Being the very definition of stupid, Trump continues to try to use his old negotiating (mob taught) tactics by paying a bribe to help his personal cause.
Our porn star loving, liar-in-chief, agreed to pay a bribe in 2017 (described by North Korea as a $2 million bill for the hospital care of comatose American Otto Warmbier) to get Warmbier released so Trump could use the news as a foreign relations victory while courting Kim at the time.
It's now known that the U.S. envoy sent to retrieve Warmbier had to sign an agreement to pay the bribe on instructions from Trump.
Quick thought: I wonder if that big envelope Trump was showing everyone (in 2018) from Kim was really a love letter like he claimed...or was it the itemization for Warmbier's alleged hospitalization?
The bill went straight to the Treasury Department, where it remained unpaid throughout 2017. It's unclear whether Trump's puppet Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, paid the bill later, or whether it came up during preparations for Trump's two summits with Kim Jong Un.
It's a vivid insight into Trump's pea brain... finding out how he deals with foreign affairs. We'll talk about what Putin must have on Trump another time.
Trump paid, or at least agreed to pay - but may have broken that agreement (as his history shows it's a habit dating back to his mob-loving days in New York City) to make himself look like a good negotiator/deal maker.
At what price?
Kim and Putin cozied up in a one-on-one meeting recently. Not good news for the U.S. It's apparent Kim has jilted his wannabee paramour Trump like a sack of potatoes.
Could it be Trump that didn't pay Kim as promised, and that's why their last meeting really spiraled out of control?
As mentioned earlier, Trump is a one-horse pony who believes bribery is good for all occasions - even foreign affairs.
Apparently he's forgotten about the porn star whose going to get him charged with campaign violations.
Trump's headstone someday will sum up his life with this comment from Forrest Gump, "Stupid is, as stupid does."
Time for me to walk on down the road...
