Tonight, President Trump set the world on edge by raising the stakes in his online nuclear pissing contest with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un with this tweet.
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!

Trump has been in an ongoing war of words with the North Korean leader virtually since the day he took office.
On New Year’s Day, Kim Jong Un upped the ante with a televised address in which he debuted a new look and a new and improved nuclear arsenal. It was there that he revealed the desktop location of his “nuclear button.”
It was that declaration that seems to have sent the President into a rage, after a long day of rollicking tweets directed at all corners of the map.
After taking aim at everyone from Pakistan to “Fake News,” Trump turned his sights on his nemesis, “Little Rocket Man.”
But all this chest pounding and nuclear posturing isn’t rallying the support of the people, it seems to be having the opposite affect. Trump’s unhinged twitter style, when mixed with the high stakes of potential nuclear war doesn’t really inspire confidence in the leader.
Twitter didn’t waste a moment in firing back at Trump for his trigger happy approach to social media.

“Wait so why’d the world end?”
“President had a little dick.”

Not in a mood for Twitter jokes. This is dark & dangerous. I shudder for every parent of a son or daughter in uniform – and for us all.

For all of you sharing this fragile orb and premising your tomorrows on the notion that no two men in key positions of authority could be so small, empty and stupid as to risk the mass immolation of tens of millions in an adolescent dick-measuring contest, well, dream on, rubes. https://t.co/NTozS0zJZ9

You & Kim Jong trying to see who has the bigger set of balls, y’all square up head to head from the shoulders, don’t put the rest of us in y’all who has the bigger testicles contest‼️ https://t.co/dsva0wxb6l

The button we know about on the President's Desk summons a valet with a Diet Coke, but doesn't launch a nuclear missile. pic.twitter.com/DuAdC0knmY

I remember when these fights were about hand size and not nuclear button size https://t.co/Ay8SkH4QLa

The capitalization of button would be heartbreaking if this was someone’s cute grandpa instead of a discount Hitler with a bunch of dried up ham where his brain used to be. https://t.co/hFNdUB1in3
