North Koreans attending Pyongyang's ice sculpture festival have been treated to a chilling glimpse of the country's latest weaponry -- an ICBM in frozen form. The official Rodong Sinmun newspaper ran a report on Wednesday showing smiling spectators dressed in thick winter coats posing in front of the replica on New Year's Eve, waving cameras and smartphones to grab a shot.

Ronna McDaniel jabs Madison Cawthorn's 'Star Wars' fantasies after he says 'Dark MAGA' should 'take command'
Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel suggested that outgoing Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) had been watching too much Star Wars after he rallied "Dark MAGA" forces over his loss in the GOP primary.
During an interview on Fox News Sunday, host Martha MacCallum noted that Cawthorn had reacted to his loss by saying that it was "time for the rise of the new right, it’s time for Dark MAGA to truly take command."
For her part, McDaniel denied knowledge of "Dark MAGA."
"I don't know what Dark MAGA is," she said.
"Sounds scary," McCallum agreed.
"Sounds like something out of the Star Wars thing like the Dark Side of the Force," McDaniel continued. "I don't know. I don't know what that is. Obviously, it was a very well-fought primary. Madison had some issues that came out. He was a rising star in our party and we need to make sure we retain that seat."
She added: "Madison did the right thing by conceding. Focus on the Democrats."

During a panel discussion on Sunday morning's CNN's "State of the Union," a close adviser to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell claimed that Donald Trump can be held personally responsible for former Sen. David Perdue's political career coming to an embarrassing end.
Speaking with host Dana Bash, GOP consultant Scott Jennings claimed he saw no path for Perdue to be successful in his race to unseat Georgia's Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and that Trump is to blame.
With Perdue headed to certain defeat according to a Fox News poll, Jennings claimed Perdue deserved better and that Trump's insistence that he run against Kemp instead for his old seat in the Senate that he lost due to Trump's meddling was a terrible idea.
After co-panelist and former Trump administration spokesperson Alyssa Farah Griffin stated "Donald Trump's biggest issue that he's facing is that he's making endorsements based on grievance and his own personal vendettas versus who is electable, a good candidate and able to win in a general election," Jennings jumped in.
"Governors' races are often about competency and likability" Jennings explained. "Kemp is competent and likable. David Perdue .... it's sad here. Donald Trump cost him his Senate seat and now Donald Trump has not helped him win this governor's race."
"His career is going to end with two really embarrassing losses with Donald Trump involved in them," Jennings added. "Good for Brian Kemp who stayed the course and showed what you can do when you have a real record to run on and you don't have to kowtow to this and you don't have to change yourself -- be who you are and that authenticity has carried him."

Former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway on Sunday said that Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election because "God had his way."
"We did it," Trump's former campaign manager told Fox News. "With a small team, we made history and I think fundamentally changed what people expect from presidential candidates and presidencies. Transparent information. Donald Trump democratized information for everyone. Instant presidential communications."
"And you see what would have happened if crooked Hillary had been president," she added. "So, God had his way. The electorate turned things around in the right way and Donald Trump produced amazing accomplishments for this country."
