TWITTER CRITICS MERCILSSLY MOCK TRUMP FOR CANCELLING SUMIT WITH KIM
May 25. 2018

"Pot meet kettle."

If you thought President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel his planned summit with Kim Jong Un would go unnoticed by the Internet, you were sadly mistaken.

Once Twitter saw the letter Trump sent the North Korean dictator, people  immediately began mercilessly mocking what they saw as a blatant effort to save face in the face of failure.

Some people had questions:

((Charles Young))) @CharlieYoungEsq

How's that Nobel Prize working out for ya? https://twitter.com/SarahBurris/status/999648090553552896 

Some pointed out the similarities between the two leaders
Sarah Burris on Twitter:
CNN reporting Trump is pulling out of the North Korean summit because Kim isn't committed to denuclearization. "Sadly based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate" Pot meet kettle

Others pointed out that Trump’s angry letter pulling out of the meeting was written after the Korean leader threatened to cancel.

Not even worth the paper it was printed upon, especially since Kim Jon Un already canceled the summit from his end. Nice try at saving face with the backhand gesture.#ImpeachTrump #25thAmendmentNow

You weren’t “Forced” �£ You’re The President of The U.S.

You knew Kim wasn’t gonna denuclearize so you canceled the summit because of your EGO. You wanted to blame NK for not having the summit.

All those dumb coins set up by The White House Communications Agency. FOR WHAT? �£�£

I heard the real reason Trump canceled summit is that Kim Jong Un's head is taller than his on commemorative coin.

More than a few people noticed that the tone of Trump’s letter seemed less like a political statement than like a note between two people in an unstable romance:

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are the Ross and Rachel of our time


aige Love @PaigeLoveQA

Shocker! “I’m not coming 2 your stupid party after you canceled it rather than have me as a guest.” —- Trump cancels Singapore summit in letter to Kim Jong Un @CNNPolitics https://cnn.it/2GKwjwg 

"No, I'm breaking up with YOU!"
"You can't fire me -- I quit!"
Etc... https://twitter.com/ddale8/status/999647275986059265 

A few observed that this means Trump’s chances of a Nobel Peace Prize were probably kaput:

RIP Trump Nobel Peace Prize.

Others smelled opportunity:

"And if you call in the next 5 minutes, for every purchase of the Trump-Kim commemorative coin, you, will get another 99 free"

And some just had to gloat:

Finally, one man had words of advice ― not for Trump, but for journalists covering him.

If you wrote one of the Trump Could Win the Peace Prize takes, or a horse-race analysis of how the Korea summit shores up Trump's job approval, why don't you just step away from your keyboard for a while and think about your life and why you did such a thing

I think I managed to clean it up a bit, Carbon.  I had to try; it was so funny!!! But I confess, that was a tough one!

Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
