LIVE VIDEO: State Department Briefing On North Korea

USA Today reports:

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert will hold a briefing Wednesday on the heels of tense exchanges between the U.S. and North Korea. A day earlier, President Trump threatened North Korea with “fire and fury” in response to reports of a new milestone in the country’s nuclear quest.

South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported that North Korea’s military is considering a missile launch aimed near U.S. strategic military installations in Guam. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has urged calm, saying he sees no “imminent threat” of attack.

    Looks like an SNL set.

      jinx

  • The_Wretched

    Is this an SNL bit?

  • Rex

    If “we’re going to launch a missile at Guam by the end of the week” isn’t an imminent threat, what is?

    • Natty Enquirer

      Donny’s numbers going under 40 again.

    • PeterC

      They are just checking our the possibilities; No plan to Do It.

  • Tatonka

    We’ve still got a Department of State? How quaint.

    • Treant

      (Notes date and time) I actually agree with him here. McConnell is an incredibly weak and ineffective Senate leader whose only claim to fame is repeatedly stamping his little scaly foot and shouting “NO!” whenever Obama wanted something.

      Of course, no new leader will be any different and won’t be giving in to Don the Con any time soon.

    • The_Wretched

      Given all the damage to the rule of law that McConnell has done, I’m more than happy for him to go.

      • William

        I’ll be happy when Mitch is dragged out in handcuffs and leg irons.

    • Rex

      And after all McConnell did to seat his Supreme Court nominee, how rude.

    • Uncle Mark

      How cute. The “businessman”-president thinks he can just fire everyone, until he gets what he wants. Riddle me this, shitgibbon, what Republican senator do you think can do a better job and unite a fractured party around your capricious plans? (Bonus question: How well did this bullying work for you with Sen Murkowski?)

      • Lizard

        Golly gee, it’s almost like being a businessman in no way qualifies someone to be President of the United States! Who could’ve possibly guessed?! /s

    • Lizard

      I know Trump isn’t strong on the Constitution, but didn’t he consult lawyers on impeachment? Doesn’t he know that if impeached, the Senate decides whether or not to remove him from office?

      Shouldn’t McConnell be at the top of his “People Not To Piss Off” list?

      • Aides: “Sir, you’ve been impeached. We have to leave.”
        Trump: “Nuh-uh!”

        • Danieruw

          Trump: “I want TWO scoops of ice cream on my impeach! Everyone else gets one!”

  • Natty Enquirer

    Stop whacking the microphone, lady.

    • Uncle Mark

      How do you think she got her job in this sexist regime in the first place?

      • Lizard

        AW SNAP

  • Heather Nauert comes across as a sanctimonious glad-handing Trumper loyalist, but I still prefer her over that lost Cracker Barrel waitress who does the WH briefings.

      I want whatever happy drugs she’s on that make this administration look competent, sane, and possessing functional plans.

      No Sarah Dressbarnaby- Scandals?
      I’m not watching in protest!

    • Halloween_Jack

      Maybe it’s just the precise timing of the screenshot above, but she doesn’t seem super happy to be on the job, and who can blame her?

    • Danieruw

      “lost Cracker Barrel waitress”! Thank you for giving me my biggest laugh all day!

  • JWC

    so Sarah out buying a new wardrobe from ACME Tent and Awning so we shift to the non exsistant State Department with a different bitch

  • The_Wretched

    WTH is “Golden State Times”

  • worstcultever

    This is how the country ends. Leaderless. Vapid blondes imitating SNL sketches. Reporters asking unanswerable questions. Peak nonsense/absurd/stupid. This Cameron Diaz imitator is actually somewhat articulate and sharp, compared to the others. Which is saying nothing.

      We have a couple little dogs like that.

    • Lizard

      At least the dogs are cute…

      • Jonathan Smith

        and he only aims for the clean rugs……

  • William

    Will Heather be as clear and concise as she was discussing the “incidents” affecting American personnel in Cuba?

  • Joe in PA

    Again with the boobies hanging out…this isn’t Fox News Heather…oh wait.

  • Bluto

    our state dept has become a joke.

    • Lizard

      Our entire government has become a joke. (Which is a shame. A lot of people in there don’t deserve it.)

  • The_Wretched

    “Investigation – on going. Period.”

    yeah! I hope she has a few more spicy moments.

  • The_Wretched

    Diaz out!

    She didn’t run out a door. That’s a step up.
