Looks like the reality show host has blown his chance at the Nobel Peace Prize. It’s not just the contradictory bluster

President Trump contradicted his national security adviser Thursday on North Korea policy after an angry rebuke from Pyongyang over John Bolton’s comments. Bolton had recently suggested that Libya could serve as a model for persuading North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.

But Trump veered away from that idea, saying Thursday that “the Libya model isn’t the model that we have at all when we’re thinking of North Korea.” He added, “In Libya, we decimated that country. That country was decimated.”

… it’s the blind ignorance

Donald Trump has threatened Kim Jong-un with the same fate as Muammar Gaddafi if the North Korean leader “doesn’t make a deal” on his nuclear weapons programme.

The US president issued the threat at the White House when he was asked about the recent suggestion by his national security adviser, John Bolton, that the “Libyan model” be a template for dealing with North Korea at a summit between Trump and Kim planned for 12 June in Singapore.

Maybe Uncle Dotard should keep the piehole shut if he doesn’t know what he is talking about:

The model Bolton was referring to was Gaddafi’s agreement in December 2003 to surrender his embryonic nuclear weapons programme, which included allowing his uranium centrifuges to be shipped out to the US.

But Trump appeared to be unaware of that agreement, and interpreted the “Libyan model” to mean the 2011 Nato intervention in Libya in support of an insurrection, which ultimately led to Gaddafi’s murder at the hands of rebels in Tripoli.

Perhaps Trump should be made aware of the Inigo Montoya Model:

‘Nuff said.
