North Korea Trolls ‘Bereft of Reason’ Trump For Doing Something THIS Dumb During Nuclear Crisis
North Korea Taunts President Trump
The tensions between the United States and North Korea have already reached nuclear-level tension. And neither “leader” seems capable of handling the crisis with diplomacy – or even maturity, for that matter. Donald Trump throws around words like “fire and fury” and tweets about his giant nukes. In response, Kim Jong-un (the guy Donald Trump once referred to as a “pretty smart cookie”) is loudly announcing that North Korea will be ready to strike Guam by mid-August or so.
And in between it all, Donald Trump is, of course, golfing.
His tendency to golf rather than work has not escaped anyone’s attention – not even that of the commander of the North Korean army.
After North Korea “starkly dismissed” Trump’s ridiculous, dangerous blustering about “fire and fury,” the country escalated its threats against the United States with its talk of an attack on Guam. And the commander of the North Korean army got in a personal jab at the president, who, even today, as his staff works frantically to cool fears of a nuclear war, was out golfing again.
“The U.S. President at [golf] links again let out a load of nonsense about ‘fire and fury,’ failing to grasp the ongoing grave situation.It seems that he has not yet understood the statement. Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work with him.”

North Korea, led by an infamously unstable leader, views the President of the United States as “a guy bereft of reason.”
Tensions Continue To Rise Between US And North Korea; Trump Golfs
The tensions between the United States and North Korea began to escalate on Tuesday, when Trump learned that North Korea reportedly developed a miniaturized nuclear warhead, capable of being attached to a missile. It was then that Trump, seemingly without aid or input from any of “his” generals he surrounds himself with, stated that if North Korea continued to threaten the U.S., they would “be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
The rogue nation quickly responded to Trump’s off-the-cuff, dangerously bombastic rhetoric by stating it was considering a preemptive strike on Guam, a U.S. territory, home to thousands of civilians and hosts to about 6,000 American troops.
And as tensions escalate around the world, Donald Trump did what Donald Trump does best.
He spent the morning tweeting, and then went golfing, while others wonder if they should prepare for nuclear war – and North Korea continued their threats, seemingly undeterred by Trump’s bluster. After all, his actions today show that North Korea may be correct about one thing – Trump is incapable of grasping the seriousness of the situation.
There is no question that Trump is a global danger. The question now is – what do we do about it?
