President Trump sent liberals into hysteria (again) when he made a lighthearted quip in front of North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.
The two were getting ready to take photos before lunch, when Trump said he hoped the pictures would make them look “nice and handsome and thin.”
With a language barrier, it’s not certain if Kim Jong Un understood what Trump had said. And even if had understood the words, it’s not clear if he would have interpreted them as a joke due to cultural differences.
Either way, the reclusive NoKo leader’s expression provided enough fodder for the left to run with 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."

Trump supporters, however, saw the quip as a refreshing moment and some light-hearted fun:
Finally a president with a sense of humor – naysayers just hate that … but those out of the swamp do appreciate it 🤟🏽

If people don’t realize all the deals were done prior and this is just a photo OP, you’re hopeless. There’s no way they would have time to do all the meetings, eat, and all the photo ops this fast, just wouldn’t happen.

Isn’t that what we all would want? I mean these pictures will go in history books. Who wouldn’t want to look their best? 😃🤣😂😄

Thanks for sharing that!! Love our Presidents sense of humor. It’s healthy to be able to make fun of yourself. Too many media people try to put people down!! Thank you Mr President!
