World peace descended upon Singapore early on June 9, 2018.
Make Bugis Great Again
Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump — fake ones — showed up to greet the plebeians in Bugis Junction at 2pm to usher in a new era of consumerist culture built upon trade that will make America great again.
Both Kim and Trump appeared as they should: Dictatorial with a splash hubris.
A crowd of about few hundred people showed up for this once-in-a-lifetime meeting that has put Singapore on the world map, for sure.
Those wanting a photo op had to download the app the pair were touting, and pay S$15 for pictures with both strongmen.
Going around Singapore
Earlier, the duo had already made their way to the great outdoors to pose with unsuspecting tourists and with a bevy of media in tow.

You can watch a video of a snippet of their interactions here.
Fake Trump said: “Together is better.”
Fake Kim responded: “Let me say, Giuliani, I did not get on my hands and knees. Okay? We met on equal terms. And it’s great meeting The Donald. How is it that everyone around Donald is a complete idiot. This guy here is a genius.”
Fake Trump was also heard saying: “It all started with us, if there’s a peace prize anybody should get, we should get it.”
They will proceed to House of Seafood at Punggol Settlement at 7pm after their first meet-and-greet in Bugis.
The duo will make a second appearance at Bugis Junction on Sunday June 10, between 2pm and 4pm.
The day before, fake Kim encountered difficulty entering Singapore and was advised to stay away from Shangri-La and Sentosa, while fake Trump was let in without question.
