Trump Gives Pence to Kim
In a written statement the White House announced on Monday that President Donald Trump has given Vice President Mike Pence to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
A senior White House official said Trump wanted to show Kim how serious he is about the peace process. “The President really wanted to give Kim something, or someone. He (Trump) wanted it to be big, really big, something Kim would really appreciate.”
Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s lead attorney for the Russia investigation, may have undercut the administration’s message.
Giuliani told reporters on Monday that the president was primarily focused solely on shifting the current news cycle.
“This was a brilliant move. There’s no crime here. The president simply wanted to change the narrative. He needed something humongous and gigantic. All he wanted to do was distract the liberal, cable news idiots. He wanted them off the toddlers in cages thing,” Giuliani said. “What could be bigger then giving Pence away to the North Koreans?”
Giuliani joked, “Maybe he’ll give me me away next.”
Former Pence spokesperson Marc Lotter said, “Mr. Pence considers his service to President Trump the greatest honor of his life. The American VP will now serve Kim Jong Un and the North Korean people with honor and distinction. He’s remarkably excited to start his new life in Pyongyang.”
An unnamed North Korean official said in a written statement, “We are very pleased that the dotard has agreed to give the political white-haired dummy to the Supreme Leader. He and his dear Mother will live as honored guests in our perfect nation.”
