It’s pretty certain at this point that we’re living on the brink of World War III isn’t it? What with Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un.
Aside from the environmental destruction humans are causing the planet, some of the greatest threats to the world are these two trigger-happy world leaders who seem hell bent on talking each other into nuclear oblivion.
Just this morning Donald Trump tweeted what is probably the worst and most dangerous tweet ever like it was nothing.
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!

It’s the latest instalment of the toxic masculinity game of My ‘Nuclear Warhead’ Is Bigger Than Yours, and it’s super childish.
So what else are we supposed to do faced with the impending possibility of nuclear war and complete destruction of the world other than mock the tweet on Twitter?
Well, no one has done that better than KFC, who have perfectly highlighted just how stupid this whole situation really is.
McDonald’s leader Ronald just stated he has a ‘burger on his desk at all times’.
Will someone from his big shoed, red nosed regime inform him that I too have a burger on my desk, but mine is a box meal which is bigger and more powerful than his, and mine has gravy! #nuclearbutton

Incredible yet depressing as hell at the same time. We really live in a world where a fast food chain can legitimately ruin the President of the United States of America and make him look stupid just by repeating what he already said.
These incendiary interactions between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump have been on the up for some time now, to the point that Trump called Kim a ‘Rocket Man’.
In response, the North Korean leader called Mr Trump a ‘mentally deranged US dotard‘ and vowed the ‘highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history’ in response to Trump’s demand the United Nations ‘totally destroy’ North Korea in self-defence.
In a previous instalment in this political p*ssing contest, Jong-un said of Donald, ‘frightened dog barks louder’.
News from Pyongyang, from November 2017, confirms what we thought Kim Jong-un had been bragging about for months.
North Korea declared they achieved the regime’s long-held goal of becoming a nuclear power.
The dictatorial power had successfully tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile(ICBM) with a range covering all of the US mainland.
An anchor of the country’s propaganda news station read:
After watching the successful launch of the new type ICBM Hwasong-15, Kim Jong-un declared with pride that now we have finally realised the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force, the cause of building a rocket power.
In the statement, North Korea described itself as a 'responsible nuclear power', saying its strategic weapons were developed to defend itself from 'the US imperialist nuclear blackmail policy and nuclear threat'.
But, you know, as long as Donald Trump's 'button' is bigger.
