Donald Trump Brags That His Nuclear Button Is ‘Bigger and More Powerful’ Than Kim Jong-Un’s and People On Twitter Had A Lot To Say About It

After the president of the United States taunted Kim Jong-Un on Twitter over the size and power of his 'nuclear button,' people not only to freak out, but also to joke about it, proving once again that comedy can sometimes be the best way to cope with an FML, even one as grave at nuclear warfare.

For those of you pooling bets on how long we’d make it in 2018 before Trump tweeted something recklessly unpresidential and dangerous to American security, we’re officially calling it on January 2nd. We made it almost two full days into the year before Trump responded to Kim Jong-Un’s statement that "the entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, a nuclear button is always on my desk," with this taunting tweet:

That’s right, baby. Bigger, more powerful, and fully functional. Or is it?

Besides getting “nuclear button” trending on Twitter and riling up politicians, activists, celebrities, and civilians who were appalled by such a dangerous taunt and childish reaction, the jokes started flooding in immediately.

Some people noted how his words were less suited for a president than for another profession, such as YouTuber…or Supreme Commander of Imperial Forces?

And of course, the most obvious joke...

Trump says his button works, too! Impressive for a man of his age.

And of course, an oldie but a goodie: the hands.

Before everyone freaked out, some people stepped in to fact-check Trump’s tweet and remind us all that Trump’s so-called ‘nuclear button’ doesn’t actually exist.

He does have one button on his desk, though, and let’s not forget it.

If this is any indication of how 2018 is going to go, looks like we at FML will have plenty of material to work with. For the rest of you, maybe it’s time to start thinking about finally relocating overseas.
