Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” network analyst John Heilemann took a shot President Donald Trump for his tweet declaring he had a “bigger” and “more powerful” nuclear button than North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un.
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!

Heilemann said Trump was being cavalier and described him as “demented and deranged” for that tweet.
“He is not merely being cavalier with a threat about nuclear war,” Heilemann said. “He’s being cavalier in a way that makes him seem demented and deranged, and makes none of our serious allies or adversaries around the world think that he’s a serious person talking in this way about the most serious threat that the world ever faces.”
