      Dying to see how this all pans out. Kim’s working things very cleverly so far.

      • Smart do do this before his meeting with Trump, that takes denuclearising off the deal table.

          Kim’s herding global attention to where he wants it concentrated. Misdirection, or a genuine peace offering? I’ll go with the former.

          I wonder if China has offered Kim some kind of deal given Kim’s recent visit there?

            He’s actually met Xi twice now. Aljaz reported their second meeting – it was just before he met Pompeo, from memory.

      Hope all those journalist don’t jump up and down together and add to the instability of the site.

    Another one… the French are having bad luck with “mentally unstable” people over the last few years

      Was the joke about “dying” or being a hero? One is true.

        You criticised Michelle Wolf and now you’re defending Kelly Sadler, Maureen. Like Wilkinson you put politics ahead of common decency.

          It’s just noise – people choose to be offended. Thing with Michelle Wolf was that she is a comedienne and wasn’t funny.

            Yes, that “roast” style humour seems to be a particularly weird American thing, & often in video the person on the other end looks like they really would like to punch the comedian’s lights out, not force a half-smile out.

              That is not ‘roast’ humor.

              She thought it was, imo.

              Not really. She just knew that being vile to Trump was a good career move for her. She was playing to her crowd. Obama did the same at ‘his’ roast, to some interesting outcomes;

              Very prophetic, unintentionally.

          B.s. Joe. Nothing wrong with pointing out McCain is an obnoxious old fool with a fatal brain cancer who won’t be relevant for much longer. Illness hasn’t prevented him from political posturing or reaping its consequences.

            And of course ten years ago you would have been in the front row of the Lefty mob slandering McCain. Politicised hypocrite yourself.

            McCain has done good and much bad throughout his life, all of which will be the subject of great debate in his absence. For now, he is a sick man with a terribly sad family, and no one should take any pleasure in their suffering.

            The world would undoubtedly be a better place without Donald Trump — a catastrophically incompetent ego maniac, sexual predator and liar. And yet I would never wish him ill, hope that he suffers pain, or dies. Trump and others like him always get what they deserve in life: personal sadness, immense pain, and spiritual emptiness. But that is their karma and none of my business. Those who wish to inflict suffering onto others or take pleasure from it in the name of some greater moral good are simply projecting their own egos and insecurities — a hallmark of those who subscribe to identity politics and extremist ideologies.

            Project your own egotistical insecurities all you like Alan – it reveals much about your character that you take joy from McCain’s imminent death in order to salve your twisted ideological ends. I pity your family almost as much as I pity McCain’s.
