Trump at the Helm - God Help Us

Trump at the Helm - God Help Us

"They count on me to be a straight shooter with a calm voice", CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert began, hours after Donald Trump and North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un launched their my-hands-are-bigger-than-yours war of words Tuesday.

He urged the delegation to support HR 1987, the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act, writing that "serious crises are bearing down on us".

Last night on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert spoke about the missile crisis in North Korea that everyone's getting anxious about. First, that the USA was not the only country behind the sanctions, although the North Koreans' fiery rhetoric continues to target them.

Colbert then played a montage of Trump saying numerous variations of the phrase "the likes of which this world has never seen before".

After days and days of build-up North Korea and the United States have now bluntly threatened each other with nuclear catastrophe.

Having come out with that kind of rhetoric from the presidential level raises the ante, and what we have always done in the past is take the rhetoric from North Korea with a grain of salt. Or is the United States moving closer to all out war? He also noted that, even without a nuclear conflict, millions of lives could be in danger if Kim Jong-un were to use other weapons in his arsenal.

"Shh! Shut up! OK?"

"I think in the president's mind, he wanted to be sure to send a message back which says, 'Just to be clear that you're not intimidating anybody, '" said Kenneth Quinn, president of the World Food Prize Foundation. Chances are, he doesn't want to live in one.
