” I don’t need no stinking preparation.”

During a White House pool spray with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday, President Trump said he doesn’t think he has a lot of preparation to do ahead of a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in which the two leaders will discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.
“I think I’m very well prepared. I don’t think I have to prepare very much. It’s about attitude,” Trump said. “It’s about willingness to get things done, but I think I’ve been preparing for the summit for a long time, as has the other side. I think they’ve been preparing for a long time also. So, this isn’t a question of preparation, it’s a question of whether or not people want it to happen, and we’ll know that very quickly.”
Yes, why would anybody prepare for one of potentially the most consequential summits in recent history?
You know typically you do not get quite this much advanced warning before a train wreck occurs.
The problem, of course, is that Donald Trump has been winging it his entire life, and then just declaring bankruptcy when the shit hits the fan.
The problem with his current job is that the shit in a case like this is likely the lives of American military members, and the fan they are about to hit would be bombs, bullets, and missiles fired from the North Koreans.
His mistakes have too much at stake to simply be made on the fly, or when he is sitting on the toilet typing away on Twitter.
Can’t we just impeach him and get it over with?
