When #TwoDictators, Trump and Kim, meet, take a deep breath and don’t miss the ‘insanity’

By oneindia staff

Singapore, June 12: In a post-truth world, this is not a piece of fake news. Finally, American President Donald Trump met North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in "neutral" Singapore on Tuesday and it is all about bromance between the two most powerful men in the world.

Yes, they are not at each other's throats, as they were a few weeks ago, threatening to wipe out the entire world with their nukes. Rather they were seen warmly shaking each other's hands, exchanging pats and smiles, enough to melt the heart of a brute too.

Tuesday brought to our television screens the most "bizarre" episode of reality--an American President meeting a North Korean dictator in an attempt to end the seven-decade-long hostility between the two nations in the backdrop of intense nuclear hostility.

While a host of journalists from across the world flew down to Singapore, the two men held a quick close-door meeting after posing for shutterbugs as television anchors were busy reading the body language of Trump and Kim. Kim was definitely little nervous, and Trump as usual was overconfident.

As the meeting between Trump-Kim generated unprecedented amount of positivity and negativity at the same time, we can't blame when an American television anchor ended up making the ultimate gaffe--"two dictators".

After Fox News host Abby Huntsman mistakenly used the term to describe both President Trump and North Korean leader Kim as "two dictators", the hashtag #TwoDictators trended on Twitter.

Later, Huntsman did apologise but the damage was already done to the utter delight of many Trump critics who find the American President nothing less than a "f**k" like Hollywood veteran Robert De Niro who in his 'gusty' speech at Tony awards on Sunday in New York said what many always want to say.

There is definitely a lot at stake for America, North Korea and world at large as both Trump and Kim overcame several "obstacles" to sit and talk together in the grand Capella resort.

"At stake in the meeting is the American goal of ridding North Korea of its nuclear arsenal, Mr. Kim's desire to remove American weapons from the Korean Peninsula and to be recognized as a player on the world stage, and the international desire to ease the North's provocations, poverty and extreme isolation," wrote The New York Times.

If the meeting yields any immediate result, it could also officially end the war between North Korea and South Korea with a "peace treaty".

While experts are busy analysing what could be the final outcome of the high-profile meeting--"a peace treaty ending the Korean War, complete denuclearisation of North Korea or will it be just an elaborate get-to-know-you session"--social media is where one can get a glimpse of a cross-section of views.

From #TrumpKimSummit, US President Donald Trump, Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, Twitter has turned into 'Trump, Kim PlayStation', where Democrat, Republican, right winger, left winger, liberal and anybody and everybody is having a fun-filled time.

Here are a few tweets that reflect the mood of the world as Trump and Kim get busy solving the problems of the world:
