There's never a quiet moment in the White House, and today proves no different. 

US President Donald Trump referenced HBO fantasy hit Game of Thrones to back up his border wall plans, and BOY did it fail.

He essentially brought his parody poster, which was an image of himself (of course) with the phrase 'sanctions are coming' scrawled across it in classic GOT style. 

The sanctions are in reference to his notorious border wall proposal, which he wants to block off access from Mexico and various South American countries to the States. 

The wall is set to cost over $25 BILLION if it's given the green light, and will also stop hundreds of people from living in Native American tribes from living there, as well as having disastrous consequences for wildlife.

SPOILER: We're pretty sure he hasn't watched the latest series of GOT, because the famous wall which blocks the North from the South is destroyed by the Night King in the finale of season seven.

Basically, the wall didn't work. Which makes Trump's use of GOT references even dumber…if that was even possible.

Cabinet employees tweeted that they had no idea why the poster was brought to the meeting.

Trump is most likely the first President to use memes in serious occasions such as discussions regarding immigration and North Korea.

HBO most likely aren't suing the President, but they made their distaste very clear:

Honestly, we have no words.

Winter better be coming for Trump, we don't know what other season could handle his ridiculousness. 



After days of deliberation, North and South Korea have announced their intention to march under one flag at the upcoming Winter Olympics. 

The games, which will be held in PyeongChang, will begin on February 9. 

Athletes from both countries will be represented under a single flag in the opening ceremony. 

The flag features a blue silhouette of the lad mass of Korea, including the surrounding islands, on a white background. 

South Korea's Unification Ministry told CNN that they will also present a joint North and South Korean women's ice hockey team to the games this year. 

Ahead of the games, skiers from both North and South will complete their Olympic training together at a resort in North Korea. 

They will also participate in a joint cultural event, says CNN.

A small number of North Korean athletes will also compete in the Paralympics.



Donald Trump has threatened to 'totally destroy' North Korea if it intimidates the USA in any way. 

Speaking at a UN General Assembly, Trump said: 'We will have no choice than to totally destroy North Korea.'

The POTUS also called on member states to work together to isolate North Korea.

'We will fight together, sacrifice together and stand together for peace,' he said, according to the Telegraph.

'For justice, for humanity, and the almighty God that made us all.'

Trump calls this action after a series of recent weapon's tests from the state. 

The POTUS also spoke about Kim Jong-ul's recent actions.

He said that Kim is a 'rocket man…on a suicide mission for himself and his regime.'


As North Koreans applauded confirmation that the country had tested a hydrogen bomb meant for missiles, world leaders have weighed in on the announcement.

Cheers broke out around a large screen outside Pyongyang Station following the announcement this morning, with viewers being told: "We can now perfectly rely on our operational ability, and it is astonishing how greatly our nuclear weapons technology has progressed."

British Prime Minister, Theresa May, condemned North Korea's actions today.

"I discussed the serious and grave threat these dangerous and illegal actions present with President Abe in Japan this week and reiterate the call we jointly made for tougher action, including increasing the pace of implementation of existing sanctions and looking urgently in the UN Security Council at new measures," she said.

"This is now even more pressing. The international community has universally condemned this test and must come together to continue to increase the pressure on North Korea's leaders to stop their destabilising actions."

In a standard move by the President of the United States, Donald Trump, he took to Twitter to make his feelings for the announcement known.

"North Korea has conducted a major nuclear test. Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States," he told followers.

"North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success."

"South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!" he added.

Trump's tweets have been liked more than 100,000 times since their upload this morning.

The test for the advanced hydrogen bomb reportedly set off a manmade earthquake which is understood to have been about 10 times more powerful than the one picked up after the nation’s last nuclear test last year.




The UN Security Council has condemned North Korea's latest missile test, which saw a missile being shot over Japan.

The council have demanded that North Korea end their missile testing project.

They called the ballistic missile launch 'outrageous,' at an emergency meeting.

'The Security Council, resolute in its commitment to a denuclearised Korean Peninsula, emphasises the vital importance of immediate, concrete actions by the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) to reduce tensions in the Korean Peninsula and beyond,' the council said in a statement.

The 15-nation council have signed the statement, including Russia and China.

'The Security Council stresses that these DPRK actions are not just a threat to the region, but to all UN member states.'

'It is time for North Korea to recognise the danger they are putting themselves in,' US ambassador, Nikki Haley, said, according to Reuters. 


In the days that followed Donald Trump's threat to respond to North Korea 'with fire and fury' if they continued to threaten the United States, Jimmy Kimmel decided to address the topic on his show.

Explaining that a recent poll had revealed that almost two-thirds of America view North Korea as a 'critical threat', Jimmy decided to take to the streets of Hollywood and follow up on the findings with people on Hollywood Boulevard.

After confirming that most people felt that the US should consider military action against North Korea, the same people were asked to locate North Korea on a map.

And then it all went to hell in a bucket.

From one woman hesitantly pointing at – wait for it – Canada to another stabbing her finger in the direction of Europe, it's safe to say that the people Jimmy's team approached should probably sit out this particular discussion next time.

We mean, take a look at this…



North Korea's official news agency has said the country is considering a missile strike on the US Pacific territory of Guam.

The news comes just hours after President Donald Trump threatened the communist state with “fire and fury like the world has never seen,” following suggestions that they had overcome one of the last obstacles to being a fully nuclear armed state.

The state-run news agency, KCNA, said North Korea's military is "examining the operational plan" to strike areas around the US territory of Guam, specifically Andersen Air Force Base – a move designed "to send a serious warning signal to the US."

Guam's governor, Eddie Baza Calvo, released a video address on Wednesday, reassuring citizens that there was no reason to be alarmed.

"I want to reassure the people of Guam that currently there is no threat to our island or the Marianas," he said.

"I also want to remind national media that Guam is American soil and we have 200,000 Americans in Guam and the Marianas. We are not just a military installation."

This message was reiterated by The US Departemnt of Defense who said they have the capabilities to counter any threat.

Speaking to CNN, spokesman, Johnny Michael said: "We always maintain a high state of readiness and have the capabilities to counter any threat, to include those from North Korea."



North Korea have labelled Seth Rogen’s new film as an “act of terrorism”.

The Interview is a comedy about a TV producer and a chat show host, who are ordered by the CIA to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

However, North Korea have made a complaint to the United Nations. They said in a letter published this week: “the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent head of a sovereign state should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war.”

Yikes – we wouldn’t want to be accused of partaking in an ‘act of war’ in this day and age! What’s Rogen going to do about this?



James Franco and Seth Rogan’s new film The Interview is about the USA trying to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and not surprisingly, North Koreans are not best pleased.

A North Korean spokesperson said: “[this] shows the desperation of the US government and American society.”

Kim Jong Un has condemned the film, but Rogan is not phased. He tweeted “Apparently Kim Jong Un plans on watching #TheInterview. I hope he likes it!!”

We can’t imagine that American’s would be too happy either if North Korea made a similar film about Obama!
