North Korea threatened to send the United States a little “Christmas Gift,” which prompted many to rise early to make sure Guam was still safe. As the day went on, however, it seemed the so-called “present” was delayed.

Christmas Eve, The Washington Post reported that while Kim Jong Un was supposed to stop creating missiles as denuclearization discussions were going on, it actually never happened.

“North Korea’s last ICBM was powerful enough to reach the U.S. East Coast. Was this a new booster for the same ICBM? Or something different? No one knew, but experts fear that the world could soon find out,” said the report.

“The experiment at North Korea’s Sohae test stand — one of two at the complex in the past month — has fueled speculation about the nature of the ‘Christmas gift’ that leader Kim Jong Un promised if nuclear talks with the Trump administration remained stalled. Satellite cameras in recent weeks have spotted preparatory work at several locations where North Korea assembled or tested missiles in the past,” the report continued.

Trump blew off the threats, opting to return to the golf course at Mar-a-Lago instead of sitting at the helm of the American national security apparatus.

Whether or not North Korea will deliver on their threat by the end of Christmas, it prompted the internet to joke about the delay. Check out the comments below:

Mary Trump sheds light on the president’s bizarre pattern of psychological projection

Published

on

President Donald Trump's niece, psychologist Mary Trump, appeared Friday on CNN to discuss her uncle's behavior during the recent president debate.

CNN host Anderson Cooper noted that Tony Schwartz, who is best known for ghostwriting "Trump: The Art of the Deal," has said "that when the president attacks people, the words he uses, the attacks he wages against other people are really things that are true about himself."

The CNN host said a similar dynamic was at play during the final presidential debate when Trump attacked Biden as being part of an organized crime family.

"It is amazing how much projection there is and I don't know if that's the term," Cooper said.

Trump gets schooled by a historian for comparing his achievements to Abraham Lincoln’s

Published

on

During the final presidential debate on Thursday, President Donald Trump boasted that he had done more for Black Americans than any president since Abraham Lincoln. On Friday, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin appeared on CNN and blasted Trump for his remark.

“The most important thing in a time of crisis is for a president to be willing it take responsibility. One of FDR’s aides once said when things are going on right, people don't have to think a lot about the character demanded by the presidency. He can just stay in that old picture frame,” she told CNN host Chris Cuomo.
