Reader: What'll happen if Trump actually met Kim Jong-un




Naturally, all are wowed by the prospect of a face-to-face meeting between North Korea's Kim Jong-un and Trump. Of course the summit may never happen, since Trump changes his mind every hour on the hour, on any topic.

The imagination runs wild on just what fireworks might occur as these two meet. Here's one scenario:

Both of them have their own translators, of course. These men enter the ornate room before their bosses. Both are ultra-nervous and jumpy.

Kim's man: "I'm scared as hell. I don't even know how to translate 'funky little pissant' into Korean.

Trump translator: "I'm terrified too. The boss might fire me before this thing even starts."

Trump and Kim are ushered into the plush room.

Trump: "Hello, you funky little pissant."

Translator: "Greetings, Oh Supreme Leader of the Glorious North Korean people."

Kim: Hello, you corpulent elderly windbag who steps on his own tie."

Translator: "It is the greatest of all possible honors to meet you, Mr. President."

The meeting goes on from there.

And nuclear war is averted once again...
