    The First Lady’s dinner dress by J Mendel – stunning sparkly beaded indigo lace, high neck, slender profile, flared at hem. Mrs. Trump wore a pink chiffon J Mendel dress to Steve Mnuchin’s wedding.

  5. Once again the US press corp embarrasses themselves; NBC asks question totally unrelated to the location and situation…and they have limited questions to ask, and they waste everyone’s time. How embarrassing for our country.

    As I walked into the kitchen this morning, the Three Stooges of CBS (Rose, O’Donnell & King) were reporting on the numerous Trump protesters in Seoul. I counted maybe a dozen or so protesters and told myself, yep, the Three Stooges are at it again and turned the TV off.

    Of course, the legions of South Korean well wishers lining both sides of the streets in Seoul to Honor President Trump’s arrival never made the broadcast.

    American Media have fallen so far down the Laughing Stock Hole, I’m not sure if they’ll ever make it back out.

      These media cretins are going to pay for their criminal choice to not inform the American public.
      They are going to be presented with a reality so big they will have no resources with which to report it. They are going to be broadsided so badly I am grinning with anticipation.
      Like every other element of the siege against Trump, he is allowing the press to reveal their stupidity and inadequacy. No energy expenditure on his part.
      The screaming to come will be heard from Outer Space.

    This Korean Interpretor is crazy good. I mean, not that I know Korean, but what she’s saying sounds plausible.

  11. Anybody else notice how wonky, uncomfortable and unknowing… just like obunion (hat tip colddeadhands)… the SK pm was when acknowledging and saluting the troops? He took his cues as to when to salute from President Trump, who had a crisp, respectful, engaging salute; but SK pm just looked like a bumbling hot mess….surprised he didn’t have a cup of covfefe in his hand when attempting his salute…smh!!

    Prez Moon really loosened up towards the end of that PC. Nice to see his delightful reactions to some of Prez Trump’s remarks.

    He couldn’t help but laugh when Trump said “I could’ve built it cheaper”, and some of the gun stuff, etc.

    Love seeing all these different cultures ceremonies on these Presidential trips! Why the heck would anyone want Globalism to wipe out these cultural differences?

    What’s the Korean song with the large brass section that’s playing during the Welcoming Ceremony, anyone know?

      Arirang – THE quintessential Korean folk song:

      The song speaks of the sadness of loved ones parting forever….a metaphor (I believe) for the separation of the two Koreas.

      I learned it as a kindergartner when we were stationed there with my army pilot father – we were there when the war started.

        Words of song in English:

        Arirang, Arirang, Arariyo…
        Crossing over Arirang Pass.
        Dear[13] who abandoned me [here]
        Shall not walk even ten li before his/her feet hurt.

        There are other translations.

        And looking at the traditional Korean dress, you see the honor Melania paid to them with her arrival wardrobe. Undoubtedly lost on our ignorant media, but believe me the Asians note those things. And, it’s just another example of why the world should not want “globalism”…and everyone looking the same, wiping out these lovely shows of national dress, culture, traditions and pride. South Korea gave a excellent welcome to our American delegation.

          If it weren’t for the folks here who research and report on what Melania is wearing and the significance of it, I’d never know. And it would be my loss.

          The way that Melania uses her clothing to communicate is really amazing and it is worth talking about and understanding. It is important because it helps underscore the mission of the visits.

          I guess it is just too subtle for the stupid media.

    I can never get over the winning that is occurring because of our President! South Korea 🇰🇷 got their ass handed to them!

    I read a story recently that our President was approached by Robert Lighthizer in terms of ongoing negotiations with South Korea 🇰🇷. He shared that the South Koreans are asking for an additional 30 days. He wanted to agree to it. Our President told him that you tell them that the President is ready to kill the deal today and there is nothing you can do to change my mind. Our President then said to Lighthizer that the 30 days was what he would consider fair but that we never show our hand in negotiations.

    Keep in mind that South Korea 🇰🇷 has a $27 Billion dollar 💵 surplus when it comes to trade with us.

    South Korea 🇰🇷 would be in a world of hurt given what is going on with North Korea 🇰🇵. However, because we have 30K+ soldiers in South Korea 🇰🇷, they get to sleep well at night.

    Our President is finally putting our country FIRST! If you want your people to sleep well at night, you are going to have to pay 💰 for it!

    South Korea 🇰🇷 thought a $25 Billion dollar 💵 deal for our LNG would do the trick. Our President told them hell no.

    From the article linked above:

    “I was gratified to learn about the new investments South Korean companies are making in the United States. This month Cheniere is sending its first shipment of American liquefied natural gas to South Korea in a deal worth more than $25 billion,” Trump said during a speech at the White House.

    Our President sent out a tweet following the visit saying basically there is a lot more he expects:

    It seems our Lion got exactly what he wanted! WINNING!

      I still feel ill-at-ease with the SK President – in his speech (after President Trump) – he appeared a bit wishy-washy in his commitment – as if he was agreeing with President Trump while keeping his options open to negotiate directly with NK – it seems he is outnumbered by the international community – and he does not like it at all – maybe, he thinks he only should be in charge of resolving this problem – if so – he is a fool!

      I am going to listen to what he had to say a second time – to make sure I understand his position – however, I still don’t trust him – any thoughts, flep?

                I’m with you, duchess. i also picked up uneasy vibes from SK President Moon. I get the sense Moon is trying to make himself more relevant than President Trump, that he should be the one to decide how to handle Nork, not President Trump. Moon had the chance but Nork situation got worse. Moon failed and he knows it, but doesn’t like to be reminded of it. Over-rated Pride is the problem.

                Why am I this close to calling him Moonie?

                  Remember when he had a meeting with ‘that other guy’ – like they were ‘comrades in common’ – BEFORE President Trump met with him – the fact that he did not refuse his visit was my first tip-off – Strike # 1 – then, I seem to recall he made some ‘stupid’ move toward NK – some financial assistance – I think – BEFORE – the UN resolution – Strike #2 (if my memory is correct) – and the LOOK on President Trump’s face at the Press Conference when he was speaking – spoke volumes to me – that ‘fatherly’ look that tells a child to behave or there will be consequences – Strike # 3 – can’t like him at all –

                  Does this make sense to you? To anyone?

    A really good free vintage movie on youtube. It is labeled as a “Western Movie” on yt but it’s not a cowboy movie, it’s a Korean war drama and a true story that give a lot of insight into the historical relationship between South Korea and the U.S.A.

    After listening to Trump promise not to take away our right to protect ourselves from terrorists, madmen and criminals I’m going to donate again to his donation page. You get your money’s worth with Trump. Even if it’s just a few bucks, just a few dollars, would someone join me so our combined efforts can show we appreciate the fact that he’s beholden to citizens,not corrupt media and corrupt globalists?
