What could go wrong

Sounds about right.

It's neat when you can put two people together, and each is an appropriate punishment to the other for their previous crimes against humanity.

Lowbrow entertainment for a lowbrow president.

16 ( +16 / -0 )

A most appropriate choice. He represents the best of Japan.

-2 ( +7 / -9 )

21st century Japanese culture at its best (sic)

I guess this is art and culture in the Trump era.

Maybe he will meet the Gangnam Style guy when he goes to Korea ?

Piko Taro is entertaintainment for kids and the dim, so an entirely appropriate choice for Trump

20 ( +20 / -0 )

Yeah, Kabuki or Noh or Bunraku or anthing that is real culture would likely bore Trump to death. Keep the geisha far far away, please.

Piko Taro for POTUS!

Great. 2 of the most annoying people you can see on television

I have an executive order

I have a pen

Uhhh!

Tyranny!

Credit to Abe for finding Trump's level.

12 ( +12 / -0 )

The fact that Abe's government think he is an appropriate representative for Japan says a lot.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

I was vaguely aware that Trump and Abe had good chemistry with each other. Now Piko Taro to entertain Trump? Ha-ha. That makes a lot of sense.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

Abe really has nothing else to entertain a head of state? Is it a joke right?

When you wished PikoTaro would go away, Abe put him back in the front.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Seems like the entire country loves Piko Taro.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Piko's hair is more realistic. Otherwise nothing to choose between them.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

There is nothing wrong with enjoying life sometimes.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

It's silly that with all the complicated bilateral relations that need work: trade, exchange rates, armed forces, the thing Japan worries about is how to keep Trump entertained. Like bringing your toddler on a road trip.

There is nothing wrong with enjoying life sometimes.

Nothing wrong with doing a bit of work sometimes either. This is shaping up to be another nice little golf junket for Donchan.

Their communication styles certainly gel.

Did Piko Taro steal Trump's pajamas?

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Oh the humanity!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Does Japan really hate Trump that much? XD

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Credit to Abe for finding Trump's level

Finding it? He's already there himself. He never got along with Obama much because he knew Obama was way smarter.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

The Orange Head/Face and Yellow outfit should get along.

Japan will probably shower Donarudo with the best wagyu, golf course, and entertainment. When Obama was there he was led to the best sushi-ya, but heard didn't eat much because it was near midnight. Obama was more eager to talk about NK's nuclear threat, TPP, trade, $/yen rates…so sad that the best/worst of Japanese culture will top off this meeting.
