Trump Declares That “All Options Are On The Table” After North Korea Fires Missile Over Japan [VIDEO]

The Associated Press reports:

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that “all options are on the table” in terms of a U.S. response to North Korea’s launch of a missile over Japan.

In a terse, written statement Tuesday, Trump said that with the missile launch North Korea has “signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior.”

“Threatening and destabilizing actions only increase the North Korean regime’s isolation in the region and among all nations of the world,” Trump said. “All options are on the table.”

Trump later told reporters, “We’ll see, we’ll see” when asked what he would do about North Korea. Trump, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, was departing the White House for a trip to survey storm damage in southeast Texas.

    China has made clear that all options are NOT on the table for Trump.

    If Trump strikes first, China will intervene on NK’s behalf.

    • Karl Dubhe

      What did Chairman Mao say once?

      China can afford to lose 250 million people in a war.

      IIRC

  • Tawreos

    Great, the Toddler in Chief is going to settle the problem. I feel so much better.

  • crewman

    He’s already declared “all options are on the table”. What does this do differently? Are all options now super-duper on the table?

    • Tawreos

      Meaning that someone probably threatened him with a cattle prod if he mentions war anymore.

    • BobSF_94117

      When you’ve exhausted the pointless and dangerous escalating language, you’re reduced to repeating yourself. Hopefully, that’ll satisfy his macho urges.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Here’s an option :
    You resign and the planet can breathe again.

  • bkmn

    And who has been supplying Un lately? Russia. And we all know Trump will do nothing about it for fear of pissing off Putey

    • BobSF_94117

      “Un” is the second half of his first name. His surname is Kim.

  • Tomcat

    What happened to YOUR red line trump?
    They fired toward Japan and you do nothing.

    • BobSF_94117

      Don’t encourage him.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    It’s cloudy and raining.
    Why is she wearing dark glasses and spiked heels??

    • Silver Badger

      The heels are because she is short and photographs better next to trump. The glasses are to hide the bruises.

      • Todd20036

        Please, like Trump would be strong enough to hit someone hard enough to leave a bruise

    • shellback

      She does her shopping at “Whores R Us.”

    • Treant

      She generally only walks the streets at night?

    • Bryan

      Those are flood-heels.

    • Scout

      Someone on twitter called it Top Gun cosplay.

    • John Ruff

      Cuz she’s a skank

  • TexasBoy

    And Donald takes the bait in a war of words. Hey, Donald, in case you haven’t heard, parts of Texas and Louisiana have been devastated. The 4th largest city in the US all but destroyed…and what are you doing…engaging in a pissing contest between a crazy dictator and an egomaniac.

    • kareemachan

      And they don’t need him there right now. He should be in DC keeping tabs on NK. And don’t tell me he can multitask. That’s bullshit.

      • Friday

        Actually, maybe it’s for the best if he’s kept the frick *out* of the way. Probably he doesn’t want the responsibility either.

      • canoebum

        Multitask? He can’t even monotask.

      • Uncle Mark

        Frankly, I’d rather risk losing Twitler in the Texas flood, than have Ol’ Fire & Fury in the White House wondering if a strike on NK would be good for his ratings. We know that Twitler has left these big decisions with the generals, as this crisis is far beyond him.

    • FAEN

      “I don’t care about loser states that flood.”

  • Michael R

    “Nobody knew that nuclear annihilation could be so complicated.”

    • FAEN

      Just like presidenting. Who would have thought?

      Oh EVERYBODY!

  • Snarkaholic

    Heels, Meloonia…seriously?!?

  • Scout
  • FAEN

    Two unstable, irrational, tiny pee pee man babies with nukes-what could possibly go wrong? 😬🙄😳

  • Jeffrey

    Melania chose a sensible pair of six inch pumps for surveying flood damage.

    • Treant

      She’s hot for a real Texan man and wearing her “fuck me” heels.

      • BobSF_94117

        They look like tip-me-over heels, which I grant could be the same thing.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Her “carry me” heels.

    • ByronK

      But she wrote her social insurance number on the soles.

    • GayOldLady

      Have you ever seen such a ridiculous spectacle? Wearing 6in heels into a flood zone? Goddamn these people are fucking useless. Y’all will have to forgive my profanity this morning but I’m furious over everything that’s happening and profanity is the only way to communicate my rage.

      • Dagoril

        Behavior like this is why France started beheading its nobility. I understood why the French Revolution got so horrific. I mean it’s one thing to just shoot someone, it’s another thing entirely to make a spectacle out of taking their heads off.

        I now understand exactly how the French must have felt.

      • KarenAtFOH

        No Trump rant is worth its salt without a few F words.

      • BJORN RAGNVALDR

        I heard results of a study this morning that found that smarter people curse more, eat spicy breakfasts, and prefers to be naked at home.
        Check
        Check
        And Check! Like to be naked wherever I can…

        • GayOldLady

          LOL!!!!!

        • greenmanTN

          I fucking knew it! 😉

      • BJORN RAGNVALDR
        • GayOldLady

          Every morning when I step out of bed I don’t get to the coffee pot before I wonder “WTF did DJT do during the night while we were sleeping?”. This man is truly capable of doing anything and although I should no longer be surprised by what he does and says, I still find myself saying “WTF” at least 10 times a day.

    • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

      Are they Ivanka’s®. Because those are good for walking into shit.

    • perversatile

      What I don’t get is why the 1st Whore is dressed like Tom Cruise in Top Gun

      • Uncle Mark

        You know, I never noticed that Tom Cruise wore hooker heels in “Top Gun.” (He probably wore them to look taller…among other reasons)

      • GayOldLady

        Tom Cruise would have rejected that foot apparel. Now the rest of the outfit, maybe, but the shoes, no way!

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      forget the flood zone. How does she walk in grass without the heels sinking into the dirt?

    • Uncle Mark

      It reminds me of one of the stories about Nancy Reagan, as it applies to her visiting the Queen of England at a polo match. The Queen drove herself and was wearing her riding gear and boots. Nancy Reagan (a.k.a. “THAT Woman” by the Queen) showed up with her limo and entourage, wearing a glitzy dress and high heels…stepped out of the limo and promptly started sinking in the mud, with one of the British announcers commenting “Oh dear, I think we’re losing the First Lady.”

      My question is will Cheetolini bother rescuing Melania, as she sinks into the mud and below the water?

      • Jeffrey

        No. Hope Hicks is on deck to fill that position.

      • ChrisMorley

        The Queen doesn’t have a fetish for wearing riding clobber, nor ride horses when attending a polo match.

        She simply goes to polo matches played by rich posh white boys. Girls are there to cheer of course.

  • Stogiebear

    Kim Jong Un and Won Dum Fuck Engage in International Diplomacy.

    No matter who ends up with the pacifier we all lose.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      We are the carpet.

  • Frostbite

    I’m sure Melania will be walking around flooded Texas easily in those heels.

    • worstcultever

      For some reason these photos of her really make me hate her. Even more than usual.

    • Treant

      “Oh, no!” Melania yelled, “I have fallen on my back with my legs open! Somebody, please help me!”

      Moments later, she added, “Get the fuck away from me, Donnie.”

      • FAEN

        “Not you Donald…..I mean the handsome Secret Service agent.”

    • TexasBoy

      She’s hoping for a flood sale at the Houston Galleria.

    • Ken M

      The original WH release said she would be joining him, never said she was getting out of the plane.

  • John Ruff

    What a skank. And, fuck Houston. Nuclear war is imminent. I disabled Facebook cuz I’m sick of no one talking about the threat of nuclear war.

  • Lars Littlefield

    Do any of Trump’s options include taking North Korea out to dinner and a movie? Throw in a nice bouquet of flowers and I think he might be able to kiss and make up with the Regime.

    • Ken M

      He didn’t say that wasn’t an option.

  • BobSF_94117

    The video of Japan with the air-raid warnings is odd. You’d think there’d be people obeying the instructions and moving to bigger buildings.

  • worstcultever

    Lil’ Dumpy’s ready for the flood with his bwan-new USA hat! Bet he can’t wait to get his pitchur taken in the driver seat of a big motorboat!

  • dcurlee

    He should know about isolation he’s isolated us from all of our ally’s

  • Ninja0980

    North Korea ignored Trump’s red line.
    Does that mean he is a weak leader no one respects or fears?

    • Treant

      Yes. NK is fully certain that, should Trump attack first, China will retaliate for them. Therefore, Trump won’t attack (or, more likely, be allowed to attack).

      NK is also certain they’re just trying for attention and concessions. They’re not going to attack first because they know they’re in too weak a position to do anything. So they’re safe.

      (It’s not entirely an airtight argument, since they’re banking on a Trump with controls, but it seems to be the logical process they’re following).

  • Jay Silversmith

    I know I always wear aviator sunglasses, designer fashions and stiletto heels to help flood-ravaged people in 10 feet of water while passing out $40 maga hats.

  • TexasBoy

    Donald to Helicopter Pilot: They sure have an odd way of waving from their rooftops here in Texas.

    Pilot: They aren’t waving, Sir. That’s the middle finger they have extended.

  • Uncle Mark

    How come Melanoma is the only one in that video with the dark sunglasses on? It’s almost as if she doesn’t want to be recognized next to the pussy-grabbing Nazi. (What’s with the hooker-heels when going to a disaster/flood site? Wouldn’t boots be the order for the day?)

  • Scott Fitler

    My first thought on seeing the videos was wtf with the heels Melania? Scrolling down the comments I am glad to see I’m not completely crazy in observing this.

  • GayOldLady

    I commented yesterday that if Melania showed up in anything less than jeans, t-shirt and waders I’d know she wasn’t interested in what’s happening. I’ve seen and she isn’t.

    • Treant

      Very clearly, neither have any intention of getting their feet even slightly moist, much less wet or muddy. It’s pretty typical for this crew.

    • John Ruff

      As if. She’s a sad excuse for a human, let alone first lady. I hope she gets breast cancer.

  • AdamTh

    Hey Donnie, just go to Pyongyang…. and grab ’em by the pussy.

    • grada3784

      Duelling pussygrabbers: Kim Jong Un and our very own Sum Dumb Fuk.

  • Ken M

    As for what he said, or wrote. I’ll give him credit for “we’ll see, we’ll see.” The rest is far behind his capability.

  • grada3784

    with the missile launch North Korea has “signaled its contempt for its
    neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum
    standards of acceptable international behavior.”

    We needed a signal to know that?

  • justme

    ..And while we are in Houston .. I’ll be scouting property for the Trump Tower Huston site…

    • M Jackson

      The whole city is a running sewer so it’s a natural fit for his brand.

  • The_Wretched

    I’d like to know if the South Koreans, Japanese and US militaries all just watched the missile, or did try to shoot it down, or can’t shoot it down or whatever the decisions and options were.

  • 2patricius2

    I suggest Air Force One drop Drumpf over North Korea. He can parachute down and duke it out with the N. Korean president.

  • Daveed_WOW

    Melania is wearing her flood heels.

  • Mike

    Melania’s get-up, with the hair and the glasses and the twelve story heels, reminds me of Lovey Howell, who was never sure what to wear to a disaster.

  • Halou

    1, it is a written statement not a “look at me” moment for the cameras. And 2, the words used are certainly not normal for Trump. I doubt this will come to anything.

  • JWC

    don’t let donny get bored Keep waving the “Bunny” or”

  • Amanda B. Rekendwith

    …North Korea has “signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all
    members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable
    international behavior.”

    So in other words, exactly like the Trump.

    And since when has Trump been concerned about the United Nations?

  • coram nobis

    Is there some symbolism to the white “USA” hat instead of the red one? Is it part of Donald’s merchandise?

    • Karl Dubhe

      The red one’s for the hurricane, the white one’s for war.

      Maybe?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    “signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior.” — says the man who’s pretty much done the same exact thing. Fake Jesus, the cognitive dissonance is staggering.
