President Donald Trump took to Twitter on his first day back in Washington after spending the holidays at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. He attacked the Department Of Justice, announced that he'd be holding some bizarre fake news award show next Monday, and that's just the start.
I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2018
Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2018
On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump responded to claims by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that he keeps an armed nuclear button on his desk in the only way Donald Trump could...
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2018
Yes, the leader of the free world just said that his "nuclear button" is "much bigger and more powerful." And just in case you were wondering, it "works," even at 71 years old.
North Korea has pursued a nuclear weapons program since the end of the Korean War, and previous presidents have enforced international embargoes to force the regime to the negotiation table. North Korea now claims to have missiles that could reach the continental United States, and the two new leaders have been in a war of words, with President Trump threatening "fire and fury" and calling Kim Jong Un "little rocket man."
Yes, the Internet knows what Donald Trump is insinuating. And many users were unimpressed given the seriousness.
When Blabbermouth Don talks about who has the bigger nuclear button, I think we all know what he's talking about. It's your basic dick-measuring contest. Sad!— Stephen King (@StephenKing) January 3, 2018
Trump made the clearly outrageous nuclear button tweet on purpose. He's desensitizing the nation so that we tolerate more and more of his outrageous behavior. Soon it'll be so ordinary when he curtails our fundamental freedoms and rights.— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) January 3, 2018
Never underestimate a dictator.
Others seemed to get a laugh out of the tweet.

Bruh get this man a babysitter
Some users allured to the claim that President Donald Trump has a red button on his desk that he uses to have coca cola and snacks delivered to his desk.
tbh my nuclear button is pretty averaged sized. There's nothing too special about it, but I'm sure it could get the job done— Tommy Karate (@REALGUYFlERl) January 3, 2018
The nuclear button tweet is a reminder that Trump is obsessed with size, ratings, bigness.— Chris Cillizza (@CillizzaCNN) January 3, 2018
In all things. Including nuclear arsenals.
For all of you sharing this fragile orb and premising your tomorrows on the notion that no two men in key positions of authority could be so small, empty and stupid as to risk the mass immolation of tens of millions in an adolescent dick-measuring contest, well, dream on, rubes. https://t.co/NTozS0zJZ9— David Simon (@AoDespair) January 3, 2018

Trump: Hold my nuclear button.
My nuclear button is bigger than Trump’s and Kim Jong un’s. I keep it in the nightstand next to the bed.— Dana Goldberg (@DGComedy) January 3, 2018
my nuclear button— David Mack (@davidmackau) January 3, 2018
brings all the boys to the yard
and they’re like
it’s bigger than yours
it’s bigger than yours
It’s not about the size of the nuclear button that matters, it’s the dicks behind them. We’ll call this one a draw. They’re both big dicks.— Steve Redmond (@sjredmond) January 3, 2018
In light of Donald Trump's Nuclear Button tweet, should we conclude we're living— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) January 3, 2018
