    A Herald article on Sports Illustrated, Trump and golf. Not only do we have fake news we have fake golf rounds.

    The end is nigh as Trump’s adviser pastor Robert Jeffress says God has given the go ahead for Trump to take out Kim Jung On. I’m sure if all Gods are in agreement or if this is a unilateral decision. Not a good time to be vacationing in Guam.

      “The greatest North Korean threat we face is not from a nuclear-tipped missile hitting the U.S. mainland but from Washington stumbling into an inadvertent nuclear war on the Korean peninsula,” Siegfried Hecker, a former director of Los Alamos National Laboratory and a nuclear expert who has visited North Korea seven times since 2004, said in an email.

        A first strike by the US would be an enormous mistake that would cost millions of lives and throw the world into instability not seen for decades. It shouldn’t even be under discussion, but with Trump in charge it seems scarily possible.

        Fake island at centre of fake nuclear threat while fake President plays a fake round of golf. For fakes sake preserve us from real mad men.

        “We’ll be blown to smithereens!” wrote former teacher Eileen Benavente-Blas on a community Facebook page. “Trump hasn’t a clue where Guam is as he tweets our island into the nuclear hands of N. Korea.”
