On Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert kicked off his show by addressing the increased tensions between the US and North Korea.

Humphrey served two terms in the U.S. Senate as a Republican from 1979-1990.

Matt then asked her if that meant Donald Trump was more of a dnager to the world than Kim Jong Un. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen... he has been very threatening beyond a normal state.

"I don't want to be alarmist: We're all going to die", Colbert continued, "because USA intelligence now believes North Korea is making missile-ready nuclear weapons".

And the only way they will take action is if Donald Trump provokes them into it.

There were a few things on Colbert's laundry list that he wanted the North Korean dictator to know, though.

President Trump would be wise to tone down his heated rhetoric against North Korea to avoid escalating the conflict with the rogue nation's erratic ruler, Massachusetts Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy III warned on Herald Radio today, as he also advocated to remove sole authority from the president to launch a preemptive nuclear strike. The United States, we sanction a lot of other countries. But when we take it seriously like this, and threaten as the president did, that is a pretty heavy message. Colbert said. "You're going to get us all killed".

"They count on me to be a straight shooter with a calm voice", he said to start his monologue Tuesday.

However, according to an article in the Boston Globe, quoting an expert in the realm of presidential power, Trump has nearly "unchecked authority to order the use of conventional or nuclear weapons against North Korea".

It seems Colbert has his mind set on TV dystopia.
