National security adviser Lt. General H.R. McMaster told ABC’s ‘This Week’ that, “The President has made clear that he will not accept the United States and its allies and partners in the region being under threat from this hostile regime with nuclear weapons. And so we’re working together with our allies and partners, and with the Chinese leadership, to develop a range of options.“

When asked if one of the options was de-escalation of the potential conflict, McMaster rolled his eyes and jerked his arm up and down, then said, “No, duh, of course not,” for emphasis.

Popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп, while vacationing at his compound Mar-A-Lago, took a break from deciding what dessert will go best with his next missile strike to spend a little time on Twitter again. In response to the millions who took to the streets on Saturday as part of the Tax March, Трамп tweeted, “Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!”

No word yet on whether Трамп was sitting on the toilet when he tweeted that out. So Presidential!

A stampede broke out at rush hour among crowds of waiting passengers at New York’s Penn Station after false reports of gunfire at the country’s busiest train station.

Amtrak police used a Taser on a man inside Pennsylvania Station late Friday afternoon, sparking chaos and mass hysteria among commuters who thought they heard a gunshot. The man and another individual were taken into custody for disobeying orders, according to the Amtrak Police Department

People on the scene had a wide range of reactions.

“I’m just a tourist, I knew New York City was Dangerous, but not this dangerous,” said a man from Texas who fell down while trying to run.

“When I heard gun, I immediately though, well, that’s New York City for you and started running and shoving everyone I could,” said a woman from Ohio who shoved a child down.

“Amtrak has a police department?” said a New Yorker, casually leaning on a post while tourists ran around him in every direction.
