Colbert Interviews God, Mocks Trump's 'Divine Permission' To Fight North Korea

Donald Trump: US missiles have not been modernised, amid North Korea threat

Donald Trump: US missiles have not been modernised, amid North Korea threat

"I don't think the rhetoric is the problem", Rubio said.

"Thankfully, faced with the greatest challenge of his presidency, Donald Trump stepped up and in a moment of pure statesmanship, deescalated the rhetoric and brought calm to our anxious nation".

Last night on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert spoke about the missile crisis in North Korea that everyone's getting anxious about. First, that the US was not the only country behind the sanctions, although the North Koreans' fiery rhetoric continues to target them.

But Rubio says a strike against North Korea is the last option he would want to see the U.S. take, instead he's hoping for a diplomatic solution.

Stressing the gravity of nuclear attacks, Colbert then asked, "What about the future of civilization?" We are just one of the 15 countries.

Marco Rubio, a member of the Senate foreign affairs committee, defended President Donald Trump's stark warning to North Korea in a series of tweets Thursday morning.

"We sanction a lot of other countries countries - we sanctioned Russian Federation just last week and it felt pretty great", he finished. "The United States, we sanction a lot of other countries, OK?" But this is different than lying about birth certificates, or crowd size, or a wall you know Mexico is never going to pay for. He added that, "The great leaders I've seen don't threaten unless they're ready to act, and I'm not sure President Trump is ready to act". "I'm just kidding", Colbert joked.

The Late Show host then mentioned how North Korea threatened the USA territory of Guam in reaction to Trump's comments. And I just started the "Handmaid's Tale.' You know Kim Jong-un is insane, right?"
