There have been many memorable moments at the summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. No one is sure what the future holds after this meeting. If Kim does not follow through with his “complete denuclearization” then any potential progress is in jeopardy. It was a very high-stakes meeting.
There was a very memorable or “meme-able” moment from the meeting. It is now described as “The Office” moment between President Trump and Kim Jong Un.
Trump is talking to the media about getting good photos. He wants to make sure everyone looks nice and thin. “Getting a good picture, everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin and perfect?” A moment later the camera pans over to Kim Jong Un, who has a somber, blank look. From there, “The Office” opening plays.
The video was posted on Facebook by Benj Haisch. It has went viral and now has over 11 million views.
It’s good to enjoy a lighthearted moment after the tense meetings between the United States and North Korea leaders.
