Kim Jong Un’s Reaction to Trump’s ‘Handsome and Thin’ Comment Was Priceless…And So Was Twitter’s
Right before President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un‘s working lunch at Tuesday’s Summit, the Singaporean press was permitted to take footage of the scene. Trump asked the press if they were taking pictures to make the two men look “handsome and thin,” and Kim just stared, open-mouthed, totally baffled.
It’s not clear how much English Kim understands. Regardless, it was a priceless moment.
And it was not long before it was completely and utterly roasted on Twitter:

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?
1. Obama pic (by @PeteSouza)
3. Glue (to paste Pres. Obama’s face/body over Trump’s)

Nothing to do but wait and see whether Trump’s antics actually made an impact – positive or negative.
