The other day in my interview on the Conservative Cartel, host Matt Locke said that Donald Trump uses Twitter like a laser-pointer. And Leftists, like high-strung cats can’t help but chase after it.
Boy, is that ever true.
And that was never truer than yesterday after President Trump sent 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!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2018
Now, I read that tweet, laughed my butt off and hit Retweet.
But the usual suspects kicked their Hysteri-Meter up to Spinal Tap 11.
And it was all kinds of funny.
The level of screeching leftists after trumps tweet storm today is palpable. I bet you could hear it from space.

I bet you could. And that’s despite the fact that “in space, no one can hear you scream.”
Frankly, I don’t know what made me laugh harder.
The President’s tweet or the meltdown that followed it.
I had to just reassure my teen-age daughter not to panic about nuclear war with North Korea because she read Trump’s tweet. I’m so filled with rage at Donald Trump.

Go outside, strip till you're buck ass naked and scream at the sky-you'll feel better.

Obama was terrified of his own shadow.
I love that we finally have a POTUS who fights fire with fire and isn’t afraid of anyone.
North Korea bullies the world with their threats. Time we call them on their shit and force their hand. https://t.co/8pGFgcB4B3

And that right there is the nub of it.
Kim Jong Un makes these stupid schoolyard taunts thinking the President will cower in the corner in the fetal position eating his hair.
But Barack Obama isn’t President anymore.
And unlike his predecessor, President Trump doesn’t cower; he hits back.
Naturally, CNN is hiding under the desks waiting for the air raid sirens to wail while simultaneously playing armchair mental health experts.
We're once again confronted by questions about Trump's fitness. Q's about his health. It's uncomfortable. But it is incumbent on journalists to ask these Q's and report out the answers. https://t.co/fs04dQ5fyP

For tweeting something in a way that Kim Jong Un would understand.
Oy, these people.
Get a sense of humor you gormless twits!
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.
— David Frum (@davidfrum) January 3, 2018
Everyone on Twitter please stop tweeting jokes https://t.co/0Gr1gUpVhQ

Naturally, the humor of Trump’s tweet went clean over the head of Twitter’s troll with training wheels, the humorless Ted Lieu:
Dear @realDonaldTrump: If the US used nuclear weapons in Korea, not only would we kill a lot of Koreans, we would also kill a lot of Americans. It could also cause China or Russia to miscalculate. Either of those countries have a nuclear button that can annihilate America. https://t.co/j7CgRObHJm

Now, are you ready for an interesting plot twist?
Not that they’ll ever admit it, but it looks like Reuters confirmed that President Trump standing up to Chubby Un just might have done the trick:
BREAKING NEWS: North Korea says they will open the border hotline with South Korea at 06.30 GMT to discuss inter-Korean dialogue – Reuters

All of this reminds me of the time Ronald Reagan joked about the bombing of the Soviet Union.
If you’re my age or older, you vividly remember just how psychotic the Left went over Ronald Reagan.
He was going to kill us all!
He was going to start World War Three!!!!
As the saying goes, there’s nothing new under the sun.
And this is how Leftists always act when any President shows both strength and a sense of humor.
And the reason is simple.
The Left fears strength.
And they have no sense of humor.
At the end of the day, I would prefer a President who stands up to bullies like Kim Jong Un over a President who bows and scrapes. Then hands over billions of dollars trying to buy the bully’s favor.
Because let’s be honest. The bowing and scraping President is the one who is really a danger to safety of the American citizens… and the world.
