The Trump-Kim commemorative coin now commemorates Trump's disastrous handling of the North Korea talks

Ahead of Trump's planned summit with North Korean "Supreme Leader" Kim Jong Un, the White House issued a tacky commemorative coin; once Trump sent his petulant breakup letter to Kim canceling the summit, the coin became the discounted "deal of the day" at the White House gift shop.

Though much fun has been had at Trump's expense, I think that the cancellation makes the coins more valuable, not less — after all, now they commemorate something real (Trump's administrative incompetence) rather than the imaginary victory he had projected (Trump was raised on the wishful-thinking gospel of Norman Vincent Peale and his whole philosophy in life is to simply declare that everything is going great, regardless of how things are actually going).

I predict that these coins will be a major medium of exchange after our coming nuclear holocaust and will be redeemable for lightly irradiated canned goods in all the major trading posts on the fused-glass desert.

"Seeing as Trump never apologises for anything, except the break up letter to Kimmy, do you think he'll keep the money from the commemorative coin?," morosejews asked.

"What about his break up email to Kim Jong? What will he do with all his silly challenge coins he made?," asked Stablegenius Steve @numberone2

"You didn't break up with me, I broke up with you first. I want my ring back and reimbursed for the stupid coins I had made," said @sandrafualkenb1.

Trump's letter to Kim announced his abrupt withdrawal from what would have been a first-ever meeting between a serving U.S. president and a North Korean leader. It had been due to take place in Singapore on June 12.
