    On today's BradCast, the world reacts to Donald Trump's alarming threat on Tuesday to rain down "fire and fury like the world has never seen before" on North Korea, if they continue to threaten the US with nuclear weapons.

    North Korea further threatens an attack on a US airbase in Guam and describes Trump as "bereft of reason" on whom "only absolute force can work"; US Sec. of State Rex Tillerson tries to calm frayed nerves, promising Americans should sleep well at night," during a stop-over in the island US territory; some in Congress pretend to assert Constitutional authority for a preemptive strike on North Korea (maybe they should have thought about that when they lauded his unconstitutional bombing in Syria several months back), the President tweets a few lies about himself and the US nuclear arsenal, and the nations of the world try to determine what the hell Trump was actually thinking, if anything, with his reckless "improvised" remarks.

    For our part, we cover all of the above and open up the phone lines to callers to get their take on which madman with nuclear weapons, North Korea's Kim Jong-un or US President Donald J. Trump, they are most worried about. Then, Desi Doyen joins for the 800th episode of our Green News Report!
