If you thought his trolling tweets were funny, wait until you see the gift he gave!
Even those who didn’t appreciate the Twitter trolling of Kim have got to admit, this a lot more personal than that iPod POTUS44 gave to the queen.
Besides a letter from @POTUS, Kim Jong Un will also receive from @SecPompeo an @eltonofficial CD — signed by @realDonaldTrump — containing the song 'Rocket Man,' according to @Chosun. https://t.co/wbN43rFWUO

Even if that were the end of the story, that would be pretty hilarious. Almost on the level of a Jenny Craig menu… without the tweak being quite so obvious.
Because real men, confident ones, anyway, aren’t above some good-natured ribbing. And if there’s anything we’ve learned about Trump, is that he makes his international relations, and interactions with foreign leaders quite PERSONAL, rather than stiffly bureaucratic.
One diplomatic source in Washington said, “The ‘Rocket Man’ CD was the subject of discussion during Trump’s lunch with Kim. Kim mentioned that Trump referred to him as ‘rocket man’ when tensions ran high last year” after a series of nuclear tests and missile launches by the North. “Trump then asked Kim if he knew the song and Kim said no.”
Trump remembered the conversation and told Pompeo to take a CD with the song for Kim. He reportedly wrote a message on it and signed it.

That would be a little like Dennis Miller dropping a zinger on somebody, and his victim sheepishly asking him how to spell the name he was just called so that he could google it.
How much better is it that he turned it in a possibility to give a gift.
Better still, he autographed an album by Elton John… who had once turned down an invite to Trump’s Inauguration.
As you can imagine, this tweak has turned the Left in knots.
Which is — absolutely — the cherry on top.
Well played, Mr. President. Well played.
