As 2017 fades into memory and the world looks apprehensively towards 2018, Donald J. Trump is here to remind you why we can’t have good things.
The world woke up on just the third day of the year to find the American President literally cajoling North Korean Dictator – and Dennis Rodman’s BFF – into showing the world that his nuclear button works.
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!

As people all over the world tried to process how we got to this point in American diplomacy, Maltese people had their own unique takes on this show of strongman-ship, or as we call it in Malta, the battle of the bananas.
1. Is this real life?
2. A very male contest
3. Nobody likes cowboys
5. Children shouldn’t be presidents
6. Babies shouldn’t either
7. Hormones don’t seem that bad after all
8. Like, at all at all
As the world watches to see if this is how we are all going to go out – in a nuclear thermal ball created by two toddlers in suits – it is as good a time as any to remember the guy who really expressed this sentiment first.
