And Rush Limbaugh is selling this as a yuuuuge accomplishment on the part of Trump, that none of his predecessors were able to pull off.

Hard to tell whether Limbaugh is being dishonest or just stupid, isn't it? As you imply, any one of Trump's recent predecessors could have met with whichever Kim was the NK dictator at the time, because a one-on-one meeting with the POTUS would have been a big boost of international status for Kim.
