Kennedy and Khruschev. Nixon and Mao. Reagan and Gorbachev. A legacy of high-stakes summits precedes the Trump-Kim meeting. https://t.co/5OyrPy5OBh

As Kim Jong Un embarks on this charm offensive, it seems like a good time to repost this story I wrote last year about life inside the totalitarian state: "If you ask me what was the worst thing about North Korea, I’d say: Being born there." https://t.co/pKd7rOnPCS pic.twitter.com/FLatvdoTfG

Tomorrow, the entire world will be treating Kim Jong un as a global leader, on stage with the leader of the most powerful country in the world. Human rights, assassinations abroad, etc. will unlikely be mentioned. That is a tremendous achievement for North Korean diplomacy.

Fox & Friends host slips: Trump’s North Korea summit is a ‘historic meeting between two dictators’ https://t.co/s9s0riVvZ8

Now is a good time to remember that Trump’s top science adviser — i.e., the person who should be advising him on nuclear issues ahead of the North Korea summit — never even studied science. His most recent job was as chief of staff for Peter Thiel. https://t.co/QUbWpybF31

Hey Media friends, important to keep in mind that Trump wants this North Korea stuff to play out in TV episodes. Welcome to the season premiere. @brianstelter

French President Emmanuel Macron’s office: "We spent two days to obtain a text and commitments. We will stand by them and anyone who would depart from them, once their back was turned, shows their incoherence and inconsistency." https://t.co/uCgFLmiyhI

NATO is not a protection racket, it's an alliance of like-minded states banding together for their mutual defense.
Or was. https://t.co/iMVK4WHq5b

Grandpa flake and grandma collins: what did you do to support democracy and the constitution? Flake and Collins: I sent some tweets and gave a couple speeches. Grandkids: is that it. Flake and Collins: yep, but I got to stay in the gop caucus!

Trump has a habit of ripping up all of his paper — his own "filing system" of sorts. Officials working in records management spend their days taping them back together to avoid violating Presidential Records Act https://t.co/SxhurtBzmC

Did ya ever notice that even though Trump hurls personal insults at people, he never does it face to face?
He always does it via twitter, when he's far, far away from the people he's taking a shot at. https://t.co/FYX25KV5V8

Dear America, you need to get to grips with story dominating UK press. Today, we reveal how Russian ambassador groomed the funders of Brexit campaign with offer of sweetheart deal. That's the Brexit campaign led by Bannon friend & Trump ally @Nigel_Faragehttps://t.co/4ZRLW34kyO

Arron Banks and Russia:
Time for proper investigation

It's now critical that the @ElectoralCommUK calls in the Metropolitan Police to help get to the bottom of where Bankes' millions for https://t.co/zszIQfttNY truly came from. We HAVE to know the truth of whether Russia bought the # Brexit votehttps://t.co/YE5Hf3lyT2

Arron Banks, who ran the Leave EU campaign, was secretly in contact with Russian officials from 2015-2017, according to emails published in Britain on Sunday. Banks and Farage were then two of the first foreign visitors to Trump Tower after the election.https://t.co/AFpLjkru5h

Excellent piece. Many (myself included, I admit) have been reluctant to make too much of Russian interference in, & other irregularities of, the Brexit Referendum. But it's now clear that a miasma of illegitimacy hangs over the vote, and it's absurd for HMG to ignore that. https://t.co/fhlVAAUbOP

Why the impossible case for Brexit is collapsing – and Labour’s opportunity to do the right thing for party and country.https://t.co/1KoMYw9Em6

Please remember: no matter how dramatic and serious the Brexit/Russian revelations…
…there is no direct legal or formal way that the referendum can be annulled.
Not like a parliamentary election where there can be a re-run and a MP disqualifed.
Don't get your hopes up.
