Donald Trump continues to desperately try to create a distraction from some kind of scandalous bombshell story he seems to think is coming tonight or tomorrow. As we keep a look out for that story, it’s worth pointing out that Trump’s attempt at creating a distraction is now in danger of creating World War III, as he continues to provoke allies and madmen.

Neuroscientist Bryan William Jones also laid into Trump: “If you’ve been to S. Korea or paid attention to a security briefing on the DMZ or the history of Korea, you’d know the risks. You’d know that the DMZ is the most heavily defended border in the world and there are literally thousands of artillery positions.” And actor Daniel Danger Marin posted an unfinished thought that sums up what we’re all thinking: “When the President tweets as a response to a missile launch from an adversary…”
