An earthquake detected near a known North Korean test site has led to speculation that the rogue nation exploded a nuke underground.
The Obama administration’s strongly-worded letter and hashtag development teams are all over it:
"We will not accept it as a nuclear state," says @NSCPress spksmn Ned Price in response to NKorea's claim it detonated an H-bomb today.

Obama might view this as another legacy-building opportunity. Maybe another nuclear “deal” can be worked out!
@markknoller @NSCPress lol, it's not a question of whether you 'accept' it.

Of course they won't accept it. They are reality deficient. https://t.co/QpIkYCNIA1

Looks like another red line in the sand that will actually mean nothing. https://t.co/xEESIGy1md

It all sounds so familiar, doesn’t it?
