Could flattery be the only way to Kim Jong Un’s heart and the future denuclearization of North Korea?

After what President Donald Trump said was a successful summit, derided by many critics for producing what they say is a flimsy agreement, the president took to the media to compliment the North Korean dictator.

“Really, he’s got a great personality. He’s a funny guy, he’s very smart, he’s a great negotiator,” Trump told Voice of America after the historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday. “He loves his people, not that I’m surprised by that, but he loves his people. And I think that we have the start of an amazing deal.”

Is this the one negotiation strategy that will work on Kim? That’s what we try to figure out in this week’s edition of “Problematic Women.”

We also dive into the LGBT backlash against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for tweeting about his love for Chick-fil-A, Ireland’s move to force abortions on Catholic hospitals, Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ longevity as White House press secretary, and 20 years of “Sex and the City.”

Finally, suicide rates are up for American women, but we have a book for all of us who want to learn to accept and love who we are every day.

     Comparing American allies with siblings that you can say anything to — while North Korea is like a stranger you had a bad fight with, and now lean over backwards to be polite to — is simply brilliant!
