Dispatched to negotiate a new deal with IRAN..."Tiger-lip" Tompkin secretly met with Iranian President Rouhani to discuss elimination of nukes and intercontinental ballistic missiles. Because the meeting was so secret...so sensitive...so emphatically significant...only President Trump knew of it...himself having sent this envoy* to make a deal.
*Iran's Shiite leaders sense a path to paradise with eradication of Sunnis and Kurds the icing on their cake. Rouhani discussed de-nuking and no more monkey jumping on the bed...themes TIGER LIP found at once amusing but also incredibly informative. In exchange...TOMPKINS framed the new relationship between the two countries as "peas and carrots".
