President Obama can't seem to catch a break.
Whether it's Republicans trying to overturn Obamacare, refugees from South America arriving at the border, or finding ways to put sanctions on Russia, Barry's hands are full. Now, North Korea—who's been quiet recently—is trying to get some attention back by threatening to launch a nuclear bomb at the White House. "If the US imperialists threaten our sovereignty and survival... our troops will fire our nuclear-armed rockets at the White House and the Pentagon -- the sources of all evil," said Hwang Pyong-So, the director of the North Korean military's General Political Bureau during a televised speech in the country's capital.
Most of their missile tests have ended in failure, so it isn't likely North Korea currently has the capability to launch one that will reach Washington. That's not to say they don't have nuclear technology, though: three times in the last decade, the country has performed underground nuclear tests that have caused tremors to be felt in adjacent countries like South Korea. Their most recent test on Saturday had Kim Jong-Un simulate a short-range missile attack on South Korea. The country told its citizens that the U.S. has 28,500 troops there.
