President Donald Trump’s diplomatic victory this week — the start of a process — in getting North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un to sit down face-to-face at a Singapore summit is driving Hollywood leftists batty.
While it’s true North Korea has not yet denuclearized and there are still millions who yearn for freedom in that country — hey, it’s a start. And what Trump has so far achieved is something Hollywood can’t stand.
Take Jim Carrey … please.
Ever since the inauguration, the actor’s been “expressing” his utter contempt for this president with what we’ll generously call “art.”
His latest disaster-piece is a rendition of Trump’s meeting with Kim.
The caption reads: “Let’s Make A Deal: You’ll be a real world leader. I’ll sway the midterm elections. And together we will save the world from the bloodthirsty Canadians.”

The cartoonish work shows a smug Trump next to Kim, whose T-shirt reads: “I Starved My People to Make This Missile.”
Bette Midler, for her part, actually criticized the venue at which the talks were held.
OOO, Singapore! Where they cane you if you spit your gum on the sidewalk!! I hope someone warned POTUS!!!

“OOO, Singapore! Where they cane you if you spit your gum on the sidewalk!! I hope someone warned POTUS!!!” she tweeted.
Then, over on the late-night circuit, Jimmy Kimmel made sure to get in his usual jabs.
“[Kim is] a brutal dictator who starves his people and murders his political enemies,” Kimmel said. “They’re definitely going to like each other. They might even fall in love. My hope is that the summit ends with Trump giving Kim Jong-un a rose and Kim Jong-un eating it.”
“Late Night” host Seth Meyers then made the suggestion that Trump admires authoritarian leaders like Kim .
“Trump cozies up to authoritarian leaders because he admires them, and because they can bribe him,” Meyers said. “In fact, in the run-up to his summit meeting with Kim, Trump was apparently so comfortable he told reporters he didn’t really need to prepare.”
Not all actors, though, are against this president’s incredible attempts to make the world a safer place. Dean Cain, of “Superman” fame, for example, came to the rescue with a throwback pic that sums up the media’s hypocrisy well:

Let’s just hope for what’s best for the country and for the world, regardless of how it makes the president look.
It’s really not that hard, is it?
