Stephen Colbert pleads with Trump to 'shut up' about North Korea

11 Août, 2017, 15:46 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

President Donald Trump speaks during a briefing on the opioid crisis, Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017, at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. The same day, he issued a warning to Kim Jong Un about threats of nuclear war. "I know we'll see, but it might be the last thing we see!"

"Thankfully, faced with the greatest challenge of his presidency, Donald Trump stepped up and in a moment of pure statesmanship, deescalated the rhetoric and brought calm to our anxious nation".

Thursday's Late Show kicked off with an old-timey newsreel about North Korea's threat to bomb Guam, wherever that is.

Colbert noted that he's not the only one wondering what could be tougher than the hell Trump threatened to rain down on Pyongyang, and cut to a clip from the press conference where the president suggested he didn't go far enough.

Etats-Unis En 1999, Trump menaçait déjà la Corée du Nord
En début de semaine, Pyongyang avait promis de faire payer " un millier de fois " aux États-Unis " le prix de leurs crimes ". Seul Pékin, principal partenaire économique et politique du régime de Kim Jong-un, s'en tient à un rôle d'observateur.

Of course, Colbert also had words for Trump, who set the worldwide community on edge when he threatened that Kim and his regime "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen" if they don't back down. "You'll get us all killed", Colbert warned. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.

Colbert took that moment to hide beneath the camera.

Shut up! Just shhhh! "And I just started The Handmaid's Tale". "He (Kim Jong-un) has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement". I'm not saying what we have isn't special. It was a powerful, inspiring reminder that our heroes are dead, our enemies are in power, and we've given Donald Trump the ability to destroy all of human civilization with the touch of a button.

We've been seeing this "fire and fury" comment being talked about at lot, and, apparently, it as made up by Donald on the spot!
