Imagine you are sitting at a table in Mar-a-Lago being served a piece of the “most delicious chocolate cake ever” when suddenly your host calmly explains to you that he just launched 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria.

Imagine the leader of a decades-long archenemy comes to the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea and crosses into your territory to shake your hand.

Imagine your closest neighbor, which you share a 6,000-kilometer border with, refuses to sign an agreement when you are hosting a Group of Seven summit.
