Trump Said His 'Nuclear Button' Is Bigger Than North Korea's And You Can Guess How People Reacted

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on his first day back in Washington after spending the holidays at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. He attacked the Department Of Justice, announced that he’d be holding some bizarre fake news award show next Monday, and that’s just the start. 

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump responded to claims by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that he keeps an armed nuclear button on his desk in the only way Donald Trump could… 

Yes, the leader of the free world just said that his “nuclear button” is “much bigger and more powerful.” And just in case you were wondering, it “works,” even at 71 years old. 

North Korea has pursued a nuclear weapons program since the end of the Korean War, and previous presidents have enforced international embargoes to force the regime to the negotiation table. North Korea now claims to have missiles that could reach the continental United States, and the two new leaders have been in a war of words, with President Trump threatening “fire and fury” and calling Kim Jong Un “little rocket man.” 

Yes, the Internet knows what Donald Trump is insinuating. And many users were unimpressed given the seriousness.

Others seemed to get a laugh out of the tweet. 

Some users allured to the claim that President Donald Trump has a red button on his desk that he uses to have coca cola and snacks delivered to his desk. 

What do you think of the President’s nuclear button?

Kid Becomes Internet Hero Because Of How He Reacted To Mike Pence Elbowing Him In The Face

The vice president was hosting military families for National Military Spouse Appreciation Day on Tuesday at the White House.

While thanking the kids for showing up to the event, he accidentally smacked one in the face:

While most kids, and adults for that matter, would have just let the incident go, this brave soul did not.

He was due an apology from Pence, and he wasn’t going to stop until he got one.

The Huffington Post edited together a video of the boy’s persistent request, and it is kind of adorable:

Twitter was quick to praise the kid for seeking out the apology he deserved:

And while we’re happy for the kid, we can’t help but wonder when OUR apology is coming:

Here's How The World Reacted To The Death Of Cuban Leader Fidel Castro

Ask a dozen people who Fidel Castro was, and you’ll get a dozen different answers. To many, he was a revolutionary who gave Cuba back to the people following his coup in 1959. To others, he was a dictator who oppressed his people and nearly plunged the world into nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis only a few years later. 

It’s understandable then that reactions have been so mixed since his brother, Raul Castro, announced that the 90-year-old had died early this morning. 

In Cuba itself, a period of mourning has been announced on the island until 4 December, when his ashes will be laid to rest in Santiago.

President Obama, who ended the United State’s embargo of Cuba, said in a statement that “history will judge the enormous impact” of Cuba’s late leader on the world. While president-elect Donald Trump was far less diplomatic in his reaction. 

Reactions on social media have seen just as mixed.
