Last night (January 2, 2018), everyone was minding their own business trying to enjoy the second evening of the new year, when President Donald Trump was like "lol nope" and fired off the following tweet:
First of all, we should note that Donald Trump does not have a big red nuclear button on his desk. There is no button for him to push. That is these women's jobs:
Second of all, the reaction to Trump's tweet was pretty intense, and people had a *lot* of opinions. Here's what stood out:

When Blabbermouth Don talks about who has the bigger nuclear button, I think we all know what he's talking about. It's your basic dick-measuring contest. Sad!January 3, 2018
At least he thinks we'll make it to Monday pic.twitter.com/0YFdMlj0XsJanuary 3, 2018
Trump does not actually have a nuclear “button,” big or small. The codes are in the famous briefcase. What he does have is a button to summon Diet Coke. https://t.co/wqAFiZbG4oJanuary 3, 2018
Trump just bragged to Kim Jong Un about his "much bigger & more powerful" nuclear button, but there's no need to worry.It's just locker room talk.January 3, 2018
The button we know about on the President's Desk summons a valet with a Diet Coke, but doesn't launch a nuclear missile. pic.twitter.com/DuAdC0knmYJanuary 3, 2018
