On New Year’s Eve, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned his enemies “that the whole territory of the U.S. is within the range of our nuclear strike and a nuclear button is always on the desk of my office, and this is just a reality, not a threat.”
In response, President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday night that he is in possession of a “much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”, thus proving the U.S. still has cringe-inducing capabilities the likes of which Kim will never achieve.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

The president was apparently not content to leave the world grappling with that imagery alone. Mere minutes later, Trump alerted the public that he would be announcing “THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock.” He also exhorted everyone to tune into Fox News host Sean Hannity’s show at 9pm ET, just in case you somehow hadn’t had your fill of reality melting before your very eyes yet.
