Since the summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un has received wall-to-wall press coverage, it’s not surprising that analysts on CNN might struggle to come up with a fresh angle on describing the event.

However, panelists on Monday’s edition of CNN Tonight showed their displeasure with the entire process when they grumbled about the list of items on the menu while stating they’re “really hungry” for “some substance here.”

The first person to complain was global affairs analyst and anti-Trump Republican Max Boot:

enjoyed hearing the list of the menu items. What I’m really hungry for is some substance here because the glitz is great, but this is like having ice cream before you get the main meal.

I want something nourishing here, and Kim Jong-un has to deliver denuclearization in a verifiable and irreversible manner as Trump and [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo and others have demanded.
