Giving Peace a Chance

Of course infamous North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is a ruthless mass murderer, just like his father before him. From who else would a starving, oppressed population need to be liberated?

“Our President shouldn’t be squandering American influence on photo ops and exchanging love letters with a ruthless dictator.” — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Twitter.

Squandered is a word better used to describe time spent on Twitter. It is not apt in describing time spent arranging and engaging in a diplomatic meeting with a ruthless dictator who has nuclear weapons the rest of the Korean Peninsula would really rather he not use.
