When Obama was president, the North Korean regime attacked him with racially charged trash.

Trump did something similar.

Well, it could be an ice breaker if Trump and Kim meet for talks.

I object to DPRK calling Trump a lunatic.

His tweet didn't come from the influence of the moon, it came from his penile insecurity.

It only took them two weeks to think of a clever and witty reply...

Raging unchecked lifelong affluenza twinned with the creeping onset of dementia is my armchair diagnosis of the Orange moron.

Trump is so bad even Fatty doesn't get his squeek heard as well on the world stage. No wonder he's pissed.

Missing from our daily outrage reports:

Six days ago, President Moon gave President Trump much credit for getting NK back to the negotiating table

Ho-hum. Another narrative busted. Hell, thats 2 in 1 day!

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the biggest lunatic of all?

NK may have a point.

Raging unchecked lifelong affluenza twinned with the creeping onset of dementia is my armchair diagnosis of the Orange moron.

The way he commanded the room of 22 law makers last week, the way he steered the economy, I hope I get that kind of Dementia!

You think? How so?

Last I heard, the two Koreas were at loggerheads on details regarding a potential visit of a NK performing band to the South (the North had demanded this be resolved before moving on to more substantive issues). So - No. They are not negotiating.

Hi Jimizo, that's a wise call, measured politically.

President Trump has little or no political experience in office.

What advice will Trump take?

And with 2/3 Carrier battle groups with support what will Trump decide is the best course of action? 

Honestly frightening isn't it?

Any armchair admiral will/could conclude, it is impossible to judge both Russian Federation and Government of China forces response. Will one ot both not advance across their borders as soon as the US launch a strike?

My armchair if I was either Putin or Xi Jinping says I would !! ......

Nope, did you even read that article?

He (Trump) said Moon told him the talks went well

Claiming credit does not mean receiving it!

Any way, Trump

Stupid interface, back on topic

Trumps rhetoric has failed and he's fully earned NK blustering

gyroman- Its clear you didn't read the article beyond the first paragraph.

In other news, President. Trump. Just. Keeps. On. Winning!!

Trumps rhetoric has failed

I wouldn’t say that. Many of supporters think it’s great.

These people tend to see every foul blast on the potty from Trump as great, but tough/trash-talk in particular is like music to their ears.

Well, it looks like Kim Jong Un is right again, and that he has more spine than the drumpf's sycophants in Congress. Let's just hope that the North Koreans love their children, too.

Kim started it sadly, there wouldn't be talk about buttons if Kim didn't say, "I've got a button on my desk right now...".

Trump may be a fool, but Kim instigated this scenario in the first place.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Kim keeps getting it right. But "dotard" was a true piece of stable genius on his part.

Trump sits in on a meeting of 22 lawmakers, agrees to sign whatever they put in front of him, suggests reviviving earmarks in a desperate attempt to get a deal, and some people think that shows leadership. Too funny!

Trump couldn't lead his way out of a train station if he were sitting in the driver's cab of a departing train.

Trump couldn't lead his way out of a train station if he were sitting in the driver's cab of a departing train.

But you know he would pose the hell out of pretending to turn the train's steering wheel.

But you know he would pose the hell out of pretending to turn the train's steering wheel.

And when he screwed up he'd blame it on Muslims and fake news.

katsu78, trains do not have a steering wheel.

Trump's controversial "nuclear button" tweet was in response to Kim's New Year's Day warning that North Korea's nuclear arsenal is a real threat and that he has a nuclear launch button on his desk at all times.

Absolutely amazing. Kim chooses to start a "button" war, and the usual suspect's kneejerk reaction is to blame Trump for anything, and everything.

If Kim choses to launch a nuke, or two, at his neighbors, or at the U.S., Kim will learn that the U.S. does have much bigger & more powerful nukes than Kim has, and the U.S. Button does work.

It's still Kim's choice - to be or not to be.

Yes, thank you for explaining the joke.

Yet somehow he led his way to defeating the ‘most qualified presidential candidate ever’ according to Obama. It’s inexplicable!
