|Bad Lip Reading of Trump-Kim summit is more believable than what really happened
Bad Lip Readings are back and they're better than ever. The Trump-Kim summit in Singapore had a plethora of cringey moments, from the bizarre movie trailer released by the White House to when Trump suggested that North Korea build condos instead of exploding cannons in the ocean. But there were parts of the summit that the general public didn't get a glimpse of — so Bad Lip Reading imagined what we couldn't hear during Trump's bonding session with the North Korean dictator. Gems include Kim calling Trump "buddy" and "homie," while Trump responds, "That's pretty weird." In the spoof, Trump also admits to reading Kim's diary, putting him on the spot for "wanting to grow up and get in a rocket ship." Trump also experiences some gastrointestinal distress, burping out "hey, look at the tiny little zucchini." "I'm the best," Kim cheers for himself. Somehow this whole Bad Lip Reading is more believable than Trump calling Kim — a brutal dictator with a history of human rights violations — a guy who "loves his people" and has a "great personality."
