"And, in response, North Korea warned they are ready to teach the US a severe lesson with its nuclear strategic force", the Late Show host informed his non-news watching/reading viewers - adding that other countries were not being threatened.

U.S. Sen. Ed Markey, who has backed legislation to require Congressional approval before a president could launch a preemptive nuclear strike, tweeted last night, "No U.S. President, certainly not Trump, should have sole authority to initiate an unprovoked #nuclearwar".

"In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un", he said.

Trump yesterday promised "fire and fury like the world has never seen" should North Korea continue to threaten the US, words that brought a warning from Kim Jong-un about preemptive military strikes against Pacific targets, including Guam.

He said the president's threat to North Korea was "like pouring gasoline on a fire".

Ms Berger said: "I don't think we have a much higher chance of being involved in a military conflict than we did in the past year or two". But when we take it seriously like this, and threaten as the president did, that is a pretty heavy message.

After days and days of build-up North Korea and the United States have now bluntly threatened each other with nuclear catastrophe.

"They count on me to be a straight shooter with a calm voice", he said to start his monologue Tuesday. I'm not saying what we have isn't special. "You'll get us all killed", Colbert warned. "He certainly shouldn't doubt the will of the United State".

Humphrey said that Donald Trump should be relieved of the powers of the Presidency as soon as possible. "He (Kim Jong-un) has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement".
