    I need to watch the MSLSD train wreck more often. This is comedy gold!

    Agreed.

    A first step towards peace. There are no losers.

    From the Axios World Report:

    Axios' Jonathan Swan and Alayna Treene report that Trump is expected to tape an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity after the summit and before leaving Singapore.
    They had previously reported that Hannity would get the first interview, but even before the seats cool off?

    The itinerary

    Note: Singapore is 12 hours ahead of the U.S. East Coast.

    9am local [9pm ET]: Trump greets Kim, with a 45 minute one-on-one meeting (which will include translators) beginning at 9:15.

    10am: Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, and National Security Advisor John Bolton join for an expanded bilateral meeting.

    11:30am: Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Ambassador Sung Kim, and NSC Asia chief Matt Pottinger join the group for a working lunch.

    4pm: Trump holds a press conference.

    7pm: Trump departs for Washington, by way of Guam and Hawaii.

    And of course he has to squeeze Hannity in there somewhere.

    And, don't forget how Obama was called a traitor simply for starting to 'normalize' relations with Cuba... which Trump,felt the need to roll back immediately... but meeting face to face with 'Trumps a dotard, i will bomb the US into annihilation'... THAT is all of the sudden the right and smart move.

    Gee, if Obama would have even entertained the idea ... GOP would have nuts with calls of treason.

    Leaving at 7pm, that means he can catch most of F&F... that should make him happy.

    Notes on the meeting from three people with some expertise in the matter:

    Why to worry: Michael O'Hanlon of Brookings says bad outcomes include: 1. The U.S. gambles away its military alliance with South Korea for insufficient returns. 2. Negotiations fall apart, but global appetites for maximum pressure on Pyongyang are gone. 3. The leaders clash and "we wind up on the path towards 2017 again, and seem on the brink of war."

    Why to hope WaPo's Anna Fifield writes: "Despite everything I’ve learned in the 14 years since I began covering North Korea, despite myself, I feel hopeful again now ahead of Tuesday’s summit. ... I’m not optimistic about complete denuclearization. No way. ... But this moment feels different. This process is different. These leaders are different. "

    One little tip: Ryan Hass of Brookings says to watch for "recycled language" from previous agreements in North Korea's post-summit statements. "That would be a key indicator" that there was no breakthrough, he says.
    Note that last one.

    Bill Richarson does not see full denuclearization of NK at the horizon either. Maybe some, but not all... those weapons are what gave Kim the world stage, there would be no incentive for him to give them all up.

    Makes sense.
