That's pretty lame --to "forget" a couple of years' popular protest, investigation, arrests, and conviction of Moon's predecessor this.empowerment(Park Geun-hye).

But it does neatly illustrate common US America respect for events which have not been dramatized for TV audiences.

Don't think he forgot about the popular protests. Rather he remembers this:

Despite high expectations in the beginning,[17] his presidency encountered strong opposition from the conservative Grand National Party and media. They constantly accused him of incompetence, and insulting criticism was frequently published in the media.[18] As a result, many of Roh's policies, including a plan to move the capital, and a plan to form a coalition with the opposition, were also attacked and made little progress.

After leaving office, Roh returned to his hometown of Bongha Maeul. He ran a duck farm and lived an ordinary life, sharing it through his blog. He also ran a website called "Democracy 2.0" to promote healthy online discussions.[19] The constantly growing numbers of visits by his political supporters[20] were seen as a threat to the Grand National Party. Fourteen months later, Roh was suspected of bribery by prosecutors, and the subsequent investigations attracted public attention. Roh committed suicide on 23 May 2009 by jumping from a mountain cliff behind his home, after saying that "there are too many people suffering because of me" on a suicide note on his PC.[21] About 4 million people visited Roh's hometown Bongha Village in the week following his death. His suicide was confirmed by police.[22]

Hark! The Method of His Madness
When it comes to the international chess game, Trump is a master
Then there is the summit with Kim. The president's mastery in bringing Kim to the table, while right out of "The Art of the Deal," is potentially a move toward what every beauty pageant contestant wants -- world peace. The moves he has made in this effort impact China, Iran and every other nation on the globe. We will see where it goes but whatever comes of this meeting, the president is always playing a long game. That long game is restoring America's position as the global leader.

hmm, Schwartz has a personal connection? 'Cause GNP-survivor fear of Trump seems like a reach to me.
