Kim Jong Un Absolutely Shaken After Trump Jokes To Photographers: Make Us Look “Thin and Perfect”
Yesterday in Singapore, Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un sat down for an historic meeting, followed by a working lunch. Earlier reports of the two leaders have suggested that the two world leaders are both hearty eaters.
The lunch menu was made available to the press; the food consisted of cuisine inspired by “French, Chinese, and Korean flavors,” Chef Pang Kok Keong told a Singaporean media outlet. Willin Low, another Singaporean chef, called the choice of food “quite diplomatic … with Western and Korean dishes in the first two courses so no one would be embarrassed with food they are not comfortable with.”
They ate beef short rib confit and potato dauphinois, along with steamed broccoli and sweet and sour pork. For dessert, the two world leaders had dark chocolate tartlet ganache with Häagen-Dazs ice cream. It was a veritable feast.
However, before they dove into the food, the president made sure that the throng of photographers had a good shot of him with Chairman Kim.
Trump joked with photographers, “Getting a good picture, everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin and perfect?”

As you can see from the video (which looks more like an episode of The Office than a diplomatic summit), Kim looks absolutely shaken.
Following Trump’s joke, the two leaders sat down to a three-course meal. Trump seemed to guide Kim along during the course of the day; Kim appeared unaccustomed to the throng of reporters which following the two throughout the day in Singapore. When reporters shouted questions at the two leaders, Trump leaned in to tell Kim, “The press, they never stop.”
