Welcome to the Biggest Show On Earth, the Singapore Summit!

In the far corner we have the Great Un, Li'l Kimmie Rocketman, whose high 'n tight flattop has been known to put the wobblies in the knees of Seal Team Six!

In the near corner we have the fabulous King Konman Donnie Trump, the reigning World Champeen negotiator! Some people are saying that, "within the first minute, he'll know. His touch, his feel - that's what he does." It's all about attitude folks! It's all about bullshit!

And our referee tonight is the colorful and bejeweled Dennis "the Worm" Rodman, veteran of many high level confabs with both of our contestants. Only a top scrapper could officiate this Battle of the Titans, which will be fought under the strictest Jungle Rules of no regulations and complete free trade of offensive maneuvers! Expect to see a lot of elbows flying in the paint.

King Konman is so confident that he will fire the smaller Un that he has done NOTHING TO PREPARE for this bout - astounding! But he'd better beware because Li'l Rocketman comes from a long line of inscrutable pranksters, with a known knack for dictating his own terms.

(Bets on this evening's debacle may be placed online at Potcoin.biz. Not responsible if your cash is turned into worthless and untrackable electrons.)

Part of me is siding with Maher, who isn't the only one saying, "Hey, they're both nutty as squirrels on crack, so maybe this could work! Give our insane president a chance!"

The other part of me predicts that both Trump and Rodman can't wait to sample some strange Singaporean tail, and Kim will have the hidden cameras rolling.

And yet another part of me predicts that Trumpians won't give one solid damn even if the tapes are revealed.

Rodman, on the other hand, will be "metoo'd" into submission.

yes the Singapore episode. Mr Trump used all the right media ploys in the run up. Viewer subscriptions up ... Nielson ratings high ... pregnant pauses ... on again off again ... we'll see .... yes Mr Trump is a master of reality TV. The only problem with reality TV is it scripted for audience approval and ratings. No one gives a frak about the content.

I predict it is all about the show and nothing about a deal. We have built-in failure i.e. blame Trudeau, and future return episodes with even more hype.

I simply do not comprehend how anyone is taken in by this guy. He couldn't sell me a burger if I was starving.

He'd probably have his Russian hookers pee in it in the kitchen.

I was going to call them The Three Stooges, but that seemed insulting to Mo, Larry, and Curly.

“Honestly, I think he’s going to do these things. I may be wrong,” Trump said. “I may stand before you in six months and say, ‘hey, I was wrong.’ I don’t know that I’ll admit that but I’ll find some kind of an excuse.”

I have never watched a reality TV show so I can't make a comparison but if compared to all shows I watch, I would give this one about 5 - 5.5

I thought production value a little low, especially the trailer, the Kabuki lead up was a little dated and trite, and the denouement was anti-climatic.

If I were the narcissist Mr Trump, I would be upset with staff for not making me larger than life .... and where was my halo ... my God .... I am savior of the world

It was an overhyped flop. Even the Trump cultist Regressive crowd is subdued in uncharacteristic non-celebratory spin.

Trump may be right that he was the only US President who could go make nice with Kim. I suppose that is one advantage to having a US President who is a Russian agent!
