Sometimes all you can do is laugh to keep from crying. That’s the only way we’ve gotten through these last few months of Trump. He says or does something that just sucks in some whole new way, and what are we supposed to do? Not make fun of this idiot?
But when Trump nearly tweeted us into World War III last night, it was hard to find the humor in it. North Korea is a totally serious threat, you guys, and Twitter is not the place to do international diplomacy.
So this 4th of July, we are truly thankful for the geniuses behind the parody Twitter DPRK News Service. Like America has been lately, since the ascension of Kim Jong-Un, North Korea has been fodder for some serious satire, and these guys do it better than most. Late last night, after Trump’s failed attempt at far east politics, the “Official News Feed Of The Democratic Peoples Republic Of Korea” fired up its keyboard:
Militant Orangutan Donald Trump advised to continue insulting vapid actresses from his toilet than to ignorantly blather on world affairs. pic.twitter.com/GIf0c5Snw5

Okay, first? “Militant Orangutan” is brilliant, and I’m shamelessly stealing it for future use. But this would hardly be a story if we just left it at the porkchop-eating glutton for punishment. Let’s see how many people fell for the tweet, and just how many keyboards they broke hammering out their angry replies:
liberals are the children that become adults who got trophies for just being there and they actually sucked.. Then life eats them ALIVE

This Twitter account is fun.
Also, make sure fatboy, your Supreme Leader, is sitting at home today.

@realDonaldTrump are you going to address this disrespect or nah?

Hope y’all have a nice day! Gonna have a BIG BBQ…and that low humming sound is our missiles being refueled! Make fun; Call ‘Uh Oh’ squad!

Not everyone who fell for it was angry, though — which is even funnier!
So hilarious. You literally can’t make this stuff up. When I look at @dprk_news, I find something funny. At first, I thought it was fake.

Good thing Mika didn’t tweet this or Trump would show what a “real” tough guy he is. It’s a foreign power that’s lobbing missiles. No biggy

Haha! North Korea trolling @realDonaldTrump, they say it like they see it.

N. Korea has a top notch foreign intelligence service. They have our POTUS’ profile pegged.

With fireworks like this, I may just stay home tonight.
