Trump Just Held A Pathetic Korea Briefing, And Even Republicans Are Pissed

President Trump’s unusual decision to bus all 100 Senators to the White House for a North Korea briefing in an unsecured room was met with intrigue from the attendees.

At least, they were intrigued in the lead-up. After the fact, the seem annoyed at best.

Even Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair Bob Corker (R-TN) declined to tell a reporter if the excursion amounted to any more than a glorified field trip:

Another reporter got a similar response from the Trump ally:

For his part, President Trump only spent 14 minutes in the meeting, per multiple sources, and apparently did nothing to improve the situation:

Anonymous responses from Republicans are just as discouraging:

Even a Senator who did not intentionally disparage the meeting had to imply that he was previously ignorant of the situation in order to justify the meeting:

Hopefully, North Korea’s status as a “very big deal” is not news to Graham — the Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs.

One thing that has been confirmed by the briefing, however, is that even when it comes to North Korea, one of the planet’s most oppressive and aggressive regimes, Trump sees nothing but political theater.

Hopefully, this is just the start of Senators refusing to play along. The stakes could not be higher.
