In a massive foreign policy blunder on Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani, the newest member of Trump’s legal team, accidentally forgot that he doesn’t actually hold a political position anymore and decided to weigh in on the ongoing efforts to have a peace summit with the tiny dictatorship of North Korea.
Appearing at a Globe Capital Market conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, Rudy was attempting to pander to the hosting Israelis by drawing a comparison between the potential nuclear conflict between North Korea and the rest of the world, and the minor threat that the Palestinian Authority poses to Israel’s far superior defense systems.
But in doing so, Rudy inadvertently accused the quite proud leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un, of getting “back on his knees” and “begging” to resume the peace summit that Donald Trump at one point abruptly canceled over his own hurt feelings.
“Well, somehow North Korea, after he canceled the summit because they insulted the vice-president, they insulted his national security advisor and they also said that they would go to nuclear war against us, they were going to defeat us in a nuclear war. We said, well we’re not gonna have a summit under those circumstances. What Kim Jong Un got back on his hands and knees and begged for it, which is exactly the position you wanna put him in.”
There has been no response thus far from North Korea, or indeed, any interaction at all since Trump hosted the nation’s top spy inside the Oval Office to show off a giant envelope he’d been given by Kim. But it’s only a matter of time before the vain chairman of the isolated kingdom hears that Giuliani called him a beggar, and the least that Trump will have to worry about will be the fact that Kim has called off the summit once again.
We’ve gone to debating who would pay for the dictator to stay in a 5-star hotel in Singapore during the summit — the host country or the United States, since Kim often pleads poverty in the case of diplomatic travel — to whether or not Rudy Giuliani, who is definitely NOT a representative of America, has begun yet another nuclear showdown by accident after publicly speaking imagery of a world leader on his knees begging.
Rudy is a walking PR nightmare for this administration, and he just gets worse every day.
