Bigger button bozo

It must be increasingly difficult for supporters of Donald Trump to defend him or divert from his stupidity with ‘fake news’ or ‘…but Clinton’.

One of Trump’s latest tweets:

I hope we won’t find out if it will actually work or not. Of course he still has supporters, like:

FFS.

Trump’s tweet deserves this sort of ridicule:

Source:  Trump to Kim: My nuclear button is ‘bigger and more powerful’

Unsurprisingly, Mr Trump’s unorthodox words sent social media into a frenzy.

It ended a quick-fire day of tweeting that included taking credit for a lack of airplane crashes, announcing awards for “corrupt media”, and threatening to pull aid from Palestinians who do not show “appreciation or respect”.

But it must be a real concern that ridicule may some time tip Trump over the edge.

    The stakes are rising, it is foolish to pretend otherwise, Trump appears to be goading the other guy into blinking first. One action by Kim that legitisimes a response by the US is all it will take to light the fuse

    So Trump’s tweet was wrong how?

      Because Trump could be talking bullshit about the size of his button.

      Look, here’s Huckabee Sanders trying to make him not look like a dick for claiming to be responsible for no US commercial aircraft crashes in 1917, and failing.

      Note how she wouldn’t give Obama any credit for all the years there were none when he was President 😕

        So much for creating more jobs. People like this woman are doing the makers of parody out of work.

          Dunno about that. Saturday Night Live has a Huckabee lookalike already. Trump & certain sycophantic members of his entourage provide a treasure trove of comedy material & inspiration for parodies daily. Obama was useless for send-up material.

        Ok, so there was nothing wrong in Trump’s tweet and his critics have no sense of humour.

          I’m a critic. I have a sense of humour. He often has me in stitches. Especially when he’s a bozo.

            Your sense of humour serves your politics malevolently.

              No it doesn’t. It makes me see the funny side of all sorts of situations & people. Stop whining & being rude.

              Have you ever just gone to Trump’s twitter feed & had a read of the constant stream of self-congratulatory brain farts he constantly tweets? I mean, some things you could argue he might have a point about, but a lot of his tweets are fake news, worthless boasts, & whining like a two-year old.

              A lot of US Presidents since Eisenhower have been tossers &/or liars but, Christ, electing a narcissistic, boorish, man-child like Trump shows just how desperately dreadful their Presidential system really is. Especially when you consider the only other contender it finally delivered was Hilary Clinton.

              Stop whining he says, and launches into a full-scale bleat. After failing to identify anything wrong with what Trump tweeted and he is purporting to condemn.

              Ok, ignoring his childishness which I do find equally as hilarious as Kim Jong Un’s – I’ve already identified what was wrong with his tweet. Show me a photo of both their nuclear buttons & we’ll make a call on who has the biggest button. And get a sense of humour. You should know by now when you’re being played with for the hell of it.

              You know the US of A has the biggest of everything so of course it has the biggest button. Trumpy was just reminding Kim that fun times would be end times. It’s his critics who are childish.

  3. Mine’s bigger than yours!

    I like the message. Very simple for the boy with the bomb to understand. This is not a case of MAD as between Russia, China or the USA.

    For this is the not so subtle reminder to North Korea that they may get the first punch in, they will not be able to weather the rain of bomb that would be unleashed in return. Bigger button = more firepower. They risk being bombed back to the stone age.

    A reminder as well to Russia and Chine that the nuclear radiation fallout from the retaliatory attack will have an impact on their territories and they best do something slightly more proactive / preemptive about the North Korean situation.

    Feel sorry for the South Koreans, Japanese and Taiwanese, who will be impacted. Bit of friendly fire? Not good.

    If one is of the opinion that Trump is a bozo, naturally you will take the “he is an idiot” stance.

    However I see the message in quite a different light and as a not too subtle reminder of USA might to not just North Korea, but all the other players as well (including the UN) to stop pontificating and start acting.

      I do not like the message. One man’s ego must not be allowed to destroy so much and so many. Anyone who has seen photos of Hiroshima and remembers the effects of Chernobyl will not admire the Button Man’s posturing.

        How on earth can you describe nuclear bombs as friendly fire, Gerrit ? Look up photos of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. You surely know what nuclear bombs do to people.

    Yawn…. and on it goes…. he WON BIGGLY… move on, Hillary ain’t come back and Trump communicates in vernacular understandable by his base not in diplomatic triple speak….

    When you read the full text of the tweet it changes context. People call Trump boorish on the simple MSM propelled state ” I have a much bigger button”.

    But read it in full and the underlying promise and reminder is there for all to see;

    “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!”.

    Game of brinkmanship that Trump would be clearly seen (in this particular example) to be on the front foot, throwing the ball clearly back in the boy from North Korea’s court..

      its Japan and Sth Korea that don’t have a big red …button…that Kim’s rhetoric is ..aimed at.

      Trump probably wont press the button…it will be one of his military commanders whom he has delegated authority to act in the USA’s best interest.

      Such an extremely wise decisions. Delegating responsibility to people who know what they are doing.

        Trump is worse than an idiot if he provokes Kim into nuclear war.

        I think that I read that the president can be over-ridden on such things. I hope so. Trump’s ego should not be allowed to cause such appalling consequences.

    Mr T sounds like a teenage kid saying ‘My Dad can beat up yours’ (USA Army/Nukes) or ‘Ive got a bigger/faster V8 than you !’ (but something else maybe much smaller ?) Ho Hum 😦

    “Grow Up you imbecile !”
    Do you really want to push Mr Kim to make the first strike ?

      The ghastly image of the button is-well, ghastly. He can’t have meant it the way it sounded, no man would. I wish that I hadn’t read the tweet.
