KFC mocks Trump's 'nuclear button' tweet in threat to McDonald's
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution via WPXI ^ | January 4, 2018 | Najja Parker

There were several reactions to President Donald Trump’s recent “nuclear button” tweet to North Korea, including one from one of his favorite fast-food spots.

KFC jokingly delivered a similar message to McDonald’s. The chain wrote, “McDonald’s leader Ronald just stated he has a ‘burger on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his big shoed, red nosed regime inform him that I too have a burger on my desk, but mine is a box meal which is bigger and more powerful than his, and mine has gravy! #nuclearbutton.”

The tweet quickly went viral, garnering more than 150,000 retweets and nearly 400,000 likes. People also shared their thoughts about the stunt, and many got a kick out of it.

OK, I know this was a slam on Trump, but I still had to chuckle a bit.

When did “poking fun” become “mocking”?

Is it a slam? Are they mocking the President?

Seems like they are mocking a competitor.

I see it as an ad opportunity, using relevant news of the day, not as a ‘slam’ at anybody......except McDonald’s..................

It’s very clever. To detractors of this, KFC can say they are not mocking Trump, it’s just taking a current news story and sniping at a competitor. While those who hate Trump will see it as mocking, and like it.

McDonald’s should have immediately tweeted for everyone to come enjoy a cup of McCovfefe.

Of course they are mocking Trump but it’s still funny. Not unexpected and fair game.

It’s the Atlanta Constipation - what kind of spin do you expect?
