Trump Leaves Kim Jong-un Shook After Telling Photographers to Make Them Look ‘Thin’ and Handsome’

During the much-waited North Korean Summit in Singapore, President Trump and Kim Jon-un sat down for a lunch with senior officials from both their nations. As the lunch began, Trump made a joke to reporters telling them to make him and Kim Jong-un look ‘nice and handsome and thin and perfect’ on camera.

The camera then immediately panned over to Kim with a blank expression on his face. He appeared pretty shook from Trump’s remark, or he simply didn’t get the joke.

The two leaders enjoyed a three-course lunch featuring specialties from Asia including Korean stuff cucumber and soy braised cod as well as American-style dishes like beef short rib and prawn cocktail. The full menu is below.
