As with anything that President Donald Trump does, we can always count on the unhinged, incompetent former reality TV star to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. It’s a theme that has carried on throughout Trump’s presidency and shows no sign of slowing, especially right after he made headlines for botching the entire G-7 Summit.
We’re currently waiting to see if Trump’s antics will screw things up with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, but some newly released footage signals that things might not be going as well as Trump wants us to believe. While Trump is going on interviews talking about the “special bond” he developed with Kim, this footage of their meeting reveals that the feeling might not be mutual.
Most logical people wouldn’t choose an international summit about nuclear weapons to make insensitive jokes, but Trump couldn’t resist being himself even for the short duration of the summit. As Trump and Kim sat down for a working lunch yesterday, the Singaporean press was on hand to take footage and caught Trump making a fat joke!
Trump actually begged the press to take flattering photos of himself and Kim so that the two men looked “handsome and thin.”
While we’re unsure of how much English Kim understands, there was definitely some sort of interpretation going on there, and his reaction was PRICELESS. As soon as Trump uttered those words, Kim looked completely baffled and could only give a blank, open-mouthed stare. Watch what happened below:

It’s possible that Kim was remembering the time Trump insulted him last year — when the POTUS called him “short and fat” on Twitter. Trump tweeted:
“Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!”
It was an unbelievable moment in history, and Trump got absolutely ROASTED on Twitter for it:
Kim’s face just now as Trump says to media, “Getting a good picture, everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin? Perfect.”

@realdonaldtrump asked the reporters to make him look handsome and thin. What would that take?

As always, Trump finds a way to f*ck up everything.
