While much of the media Thursday remained helplessly fixated on the bug zapper known as Russian hacking, comedian Chelsea Handler was conscientious enough to alert citizens to a disturbing development involving North Korea and nuclear materials.
While Trump was busy tweeting out LL Bean ads, a report came out that N Korea has enough plutonium to make 10 nukes.

That news isn’t really shocking considering the number of nuke tests that North Korea has conducted over the past few years while Trump stood by and did nothing … seeing as he was a private citizen and all. Some other guy was president at the time …
@chelseahandler Just wondering, who was president when they obtained this material?

@chelseahandler Somebody should alert the actual president! Check all of the golf courses.

@chelseahandler that's on Obama. He's been president while they have been making them

@chelseahandler You mean, while Obama was busy throwing another party, a report came out about another one of his foreign failures.

.@chelseahandler Amazing how President Peace Prize has done nothing about it for 8 years.

@chelseahandler NK tests missiles and threatens nuke attacks 3 times a week since forever, but nice of you to take notice suddenly. Loser

On the plus side, the North Koreans still haven’t quite got the hang of actually delivering those nuclear weapons where they’d like them to blow up, but they’re working on it, despite President Obama’s occasional release of a strongly worded statement.
@chelseahandler What is President Obama doing about it?

Trump isn't President for another week maybe the current President should have dealt with this? @chelseahandler

@chelseahandler He. Isn't. President. Yet.
Obama had a star studded party after a mass shooting in Florida, were you outraged?

@chelseahandler Somebody should tell the current president, he might not be aware. He gave uranium to Iran and Russia, not North Korea

@chelseahandler Accumulated on Obama's watch. Obama is glad you brought it up since he always seems to find out big news on media.
— Paul Fiser (@PaulFiser) January 12, 2017
@chelseahandler try to keep up. Obama gave it to Iran who sold it to NKorea. See how that works?

@chelseahandler You haven't been paying attention to world news and politics for long, have you?
— Griff Tyndall (@Gtyndall) January 12, 2017
@chelseahandler You're always on top of it. Thanks for your crack reporting on all the news that happened while Obama golfed.
