A lot of news to go over for today’s KITM, and to get out of the way before the afternoon’s news runs right over it. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin catch you up, at least until 11 AM Eastern:

Remember that North Korea summit? North Korea won bigly. Thousands of happy centenarian parents now owe a debt of gratitude to Donald Trump. South Korea is happy that it isn’t being bombed yet, and plans to use this a start to stay explosion-free. Trump hasn’t quite thought it out that far, and really wishes no one thinks it out at all, but comes away realizing despots are fine people too, and tough love in a nation is sometimes necessary.

Tough love abounds under the watchful gaze of Il Dotard at our border. Funny, this didn’t come up at the weekly meeting. Right-wing Christians are almost ready to get to the Christian part. The Gop might consider letting parents and kids stay together if there was a little cash in there someplace. Republicans were elected by people who hate government to in order to destroy it, so this Trump situation mystifies them a bit. Was Mark Sanford pushed, did he jump, or did he just fall off?

We say Trump Cult like Kool-Aid was a bad thing, but Republicans find it quite delicious. Ronna Romney McDaniel sure thinks that you’re making a big mistake for not taking a big swig right now, and Mari Stull is putting together an ideological deviation list to measure government employees’ deviation from Mari Stull’s ideology.

Coffee boy Michael Cohen won’t have two taxi medallions to rub together soon, but he still has his health, for a while. Brexit, Russians, Trump and the World Cup—if you kept up with KITM you knew all of that for years, and if not, where have you been?
