The world is resting easier today after President Trump made clear that ‘Fire and Fury’ is just the name of his band that he plays with to relax.
“Obviously I wasn’t threatening North Korea with immediate military action – that would be lunacy!”
Instead he says he was jokingly threatening to subject Kim Jong-un and other senior North Korean officials to his own brand of aging heavy metal.
“I figured that would get their attention – of course being North Korea they might just like it!”
Experts in international diplomacy, who were so horrified yesterday when they mistook Trump’s off-the-cuff remarks as nuclear sabre-rattling by a political neophyte, said they now approve.
“Threatening to expose the rogue North Korean regime to poorly executed Kiss covers by a group of flabby seventy-year-olds in tight pants does seem like an appropriate sanction.”
