Kim Jong Un Issues Unprecedented Response To "Dotard" Donald Trump"s Threats To "Totally Destroy" North Korea!

Oh look! More trash talk from two of the world's lamest leaders. In his speech on the U.N. floor on Tuesday, Donald Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if the U.S. was "forced to defend itself."

More trash talk from two of the world's lamest leaders. In his speech on the U.N. floor on Tuesday, Donald Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if the U.S. was "forced to defend itself." Related: South Park Skewers Trump's Handling Of North Korea Well, after weeks of launching threats in response to the country's missile tests, Trump's remarks finally got a reaction out of Kim Jong Un. The biggest takeaway? The supreme leader can throw some shade! Oh, and Trump might have finally pissed him off to the point of nuclear war. In an official statement released Thursday, Kim called Trump " a frightened dog" and a "gangster fond of playing with fire." He wrote: "Far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, [Trump] made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors... A frightened dog barks louder." Wow. It's sad when a dictator starving his country can make the president look like a childish fool. But the more they argue, the clearer it's becoming that the two are the same type of beast. Like Trump, Kim is ready to fight (nuclear) fire with fire -- and apparently has a penchant for teaching fun new words to his people. Related: Trump Blocked Stage-4 Cancer Patient After She Criticized Him In his recent statement, Kim repeatedly referred to Trump as a "dotard" -- an oldschool term for a senile or feeble-minded elderly person -- adding: "I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the U.S. pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying [North Korea]... I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire." Whoa. And we thought SNL was savage with the Trump digs... South Korea's government noted that Kim's response, written in the first person, was the first such direct address to the world by any North Korean leader. Hours after Kim's unprecedented comments, North Korea's foreign minister reportedly said the country may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean to fulfill Kim's vow to take the "highest-level" action against the U.S. Trump, however, is just getting started with "testing" Kim's patience. He tweeted on Friday: Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 22, 2017 Trump also announced on Thursday he is planning to sign an executive order that would put sanctions on individuals, companies, and financial institutions that do business with North Korea -- or, as Trump put it, "this criminal rogue regime." The president has made it perfectly clear his mission was North Korea's "complete denuclearization." But by issuing threats instead of solutions, Trump is putting many in danger just to force the bad guys to do bad guy things. Thoughts?? [Image via KCNA/Becher/WENN.].....»»

The statement went on to say that they are allegedly capable of attaching that type of bomb to a missile that is capable of reaching the mainland United States. Whether or not -- or to what degree -- any of that may be true, we do know something big happened in North Korea overnight. And now, Donald Trump has reacted. Related: Geez, Trump Really Can't Spell, Can He? Here's what The Donald had to say on Twitter about that alleged test of a hydrogen bomb, North Korea's most serious and troubling development yet (below): North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 3, 2017 Trump is taking quite a bit of heat for criticizing South Korea -- one of America's biggest allies in the region, along with Japan -- instead of going after just North Korea, but here we are. No matter what happened last night in North Korea, and whether or not they truly have a hydrogen bomb (which would be a MASSIVE development), things are getting very serious on the Korean Peninsula.

South Park Skewers Donald Trump"s Handling Of North Korea AND Everyone Freaking Out Over His Tweets!

South Park doesn't even need to show "The President" in an episode to mock Donald Trump anymore! Matt Stone and Trey Parker admitted they didn't want to focus on POTUS as much as they did last season, which featured a yuge election storyline in which Mr. Garrison raped and killed the show's version of Trump before [...] South Park doesn't even need to show "The President" in an episode to mock Donald Trump anymore! Matt Stone and Trey Parker admitted they didn't want to focus on POTUS as much as they did last season, which featured a yuge election storyline in which Mr. Garrison raped and killed the show's version of Trump before taking on his personality and winning the presidency. Even though he hasn't physically shown up in South Park yet, the president -- who remained nameless in this week's episode -- was still satirized in what seemed to be a response to Trump's antagonizing remarks to North Korea. Related: Trump Lashes Out The Emmys' 'Bad' Ratings! Just a day after Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea in his UN address on Tuesday, the cartoon series acknowledged the fear of living under world leaders caught up in a nuclear pissing contest. The episode started with the boys' classmate Tweek playing a song about the current political climate for the school talent show. In his "song," Tweek frustratingly bangs on the piano and yells about how North Korea is going to kill us all and it's all the president's fault, screaming: "We're all going to die! They have nuclear missiles. Why are you just sitting there doing nothing?! We have to get out of here. North Korea wants to kill us and our president keeps making it worse. Why are you all just sitting there? Why are you all acting like nothing's wrong? North Korea is going to bomb us. We are all dead. We have to do something. Do something! Do something! Ahhhh!" The main question driving the episode is if Tweek is overreacting or not. His boyfriend Greg suggests Tweek send the North Koreans cupcakes so they know that all Americans aren't as shitty as the president. This gesture works... until the president gets involved. Soon, CNN reports that the president -- who appears to still be Garrison -- has launched a Twitter attack on North Korea, saying Tweek "took a dump in the batter." Which, of course, blows up the whole situation. Here are a few of his tweets: LOL, but how sad is it that these aren't really that farfetched? Amid the North Korea drama, other students are trying to raise awareness about the deadly effects of distracted driving, since multiple parents have been running over kids due to freaking out about the president's tweets from behind the wheel. The plotlines tie together in the end of the episode, when Tweek partners with Greg to perform another song. This time, the duo sings about the dangers of being distracted by your phone -- joined by a choir of South Park kids who tell the president to "Put It Down," singing: "Don't be on your phone while being president / Put it down / You might do something dumb and cause an accident." After the song, locals pledge to put down their phones if they become president -- even Hillary Clinton makes a cameo! Hey girl! The moral of the story? Put down your fucking phone, Trump. Also, recklessly freaking out about the president's tweets only makes things worse. [Image via Comedy Central.].....»»

We just received breaking news that the Winter Olympics are still a thing and that in record time this year’s event is already tragic stupid and boring. Today marked the opening ceremony of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics on the other side of the globe in South Korea, and now we’re now destined for two weeks of terrible sports that no one cares about. Or three weeks. Or one. Nobody knows. Those up at 6 a.m. this morning were able to stream the opening ceremony live, and tonight’s stateside edited broadcast will be at 8:00 p.m. ET. Be sure to watch out for footage of a stadium full of douchebags punctuated by rags to riches stories and fun facts about the host city shared through playful banter between announcers Katie Couric and Mike Tirico. “Now did you hear this Mike, they eat dogs in South Korea and it’s called ‘gaegogi.'” “Yum Katie, I wonder if they call it Gaegogi Style, like the song.” “Oh Mike you’re so funny, fuck me right here.” Up until this morning’s opening ceremony, the biggest news to come out of the 2018 Winter Olympics was the fact that North Korea was going to allow a chain gang of work prisoners to represent their country poorly in various sports. Though when the alternative to winning is getting tortured and killed, you might have a little extra pep in your step. But this is all old news as of now, because during the opening ceremony, team USA – decked out like 2002 frat boys ready for a ski weekend in Gatlinburg, TN. Who stopped by a gas station parking lot to buy novelty fringe Cherokee gloves out of someone’s trunk – stormed onto the field to the song Gangnam Style by Psy – the most successful song to come out of South Korea. Unless an orgy sex tape leaks from the Olympics HPVillage or North Korea blows up everyone I won’t be covering the Winter Olympics again because I can’t have that kind of liability on my résumé. Sorry if this was too negative, I just don’t like things that are tragic stupid and boring.   Photo Credit: Getty Images The post BREAKING: Winter Olympics Already Tragic Stupid And Boring appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

On Tuesday, POTUS gave his speech at the annual U.N. General Assembly during which he addressed the "great peril" the world faces from "rogue regimes" like North Korea and Iran. Fair. Related: James Corden Apologizes For Kissing Sean Spicer At The Emmys! He told over 150 delegations in attendance: "We meet at a time of immense promise and great peril. It is up to us whether we will lift the world to new heights or let it fall into a valley of disrepair." Trump went on the emphasize that if Kim Jong Un continued to threaten the United States and to destabilize East Asia, he would have no choice but to "totally destroy" North Korea: "We will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself. If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph." Elton John is shaking.
