WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles®) – There seems to be a double standard when it comes to secret meetings among controversial politicians and religious leaders.

The social media was abuzz with angry posts about The Vatican’s admission that Pope Francis did meet with Rowan County (KY) county clerk Kim Davis at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C. last week.

Many interpreted the meeting as the Pope’s endorsement of discrimination against gay men and women in as far as marriage is concerned.

During the secret meeting, the Pope allegedly thanked Davis for her “courage” and asked her to “stay strong.”

Davis was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, despite an order by the court.

Yet, everything seems to be hush-hush regarding another secret meeting — between President Barack Obama and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

It allegedly happened shortly after the president met with Chinese President Xi Jinping, during the latter’s official state visit to the U.S. last week.

No details were released by The White House regarding the Obama-Kim secret meeting.

After a thorough investigation, The Adobo Chronicles® can now confirm that the secret meeting did happen, but it was between Obama and Kim’s alter ego, Randall Park.

Park played the role of Kim Jong-Un in the controversial film, “The Interview.” The Sony flick was pulled from theaters after threats of possible attacks on moviegoers.

Park was a guest of The White House during a state dinner held in honor of the Chinese President.

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – When one criticizes or makes fun of North Korea or its leader Kim Jong-un, there are severe consequences.

We all know about the infamous hacking of Sony Pictures’ email account which many believe to be the work of North Korea in retaliation for the film, ‘The Interview’ whose plot revolves around the assassination of Kim.

Well, everyone who saw last night’s Golden Globes  knows that North Korea was once again the object of ridicule. Thanks to the award show’s segments that featured Korean American comedian Margaret Cho posing as a North Korean general obsessed with American entertainment, complete with the all too familiar Korean military attire, powdered face and distinctive accent.

The consequence? Cho’s Facebook and email accounts were hacked and North Korea once again is the suspect.

In the next few days, we expect compromising  and x-rated photos of Cho and damaging email conversations she has had with close friends to surface on the Internet.

Let’s just hope North Korea decides to skip the photos.

HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Upon the request of President Kim Jong-un, the United States will extradite Korean-American Margaret Cho to Pyongyang to face slander charges.

The State Department action comes the morning after controversial televised segments of the Golden Globes in Los Angeles.

As part of a running gag on the show, co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler introduced the “newest HFPA member” — North Korean general Cho Young Ja, played by Margaret Cho.

She was solemn and quiet at first, holding up her freelance magazine, Movies Wow, and wanting only to take a picture with Meryl Streep. Cho kept reappearing during the three-hour telecast as the North Korean general who is obsessed with American entertainment.

In a statement, the State Department said that the extradition is part of Washington’s ongoing efforts to re-establish diplomatic relations with North Korea. “It’s a good faith effort to show the Pyongyang government that America is sincere in wanting conciliation with the communist country,” the statement said.

The U.S. does not have an extradition agreement with North Korea.
