James Corden Mocks President's Threatening Tweet To Iranian Government

James Corden, the host of 'The Late Late Show', often cracks jokes about President Donald Trump, so Monday night's show was not that different from usual. Corden brought up a recent tweet by the president in which Trump aggressively threatens another nation. The tweet has quickly become a meme, however it's hardly a laughing matter.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhan warned President Trump on Sunday that his hostile policies against Tehran could result in 'the mother of all wars'. Trump's response came via Twitter, emphasized in caps:

"To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!"

Corden showed the Tweet to his audience and couldn't help but sound surprised by the aggressive tone and language. "Last night, around midnight, President Trump downed three Red Bulls, and Tweeted this," said Corden. "Now, it seems that the only thing still working in the Trump's administration is a caps-lock key. This is a scary tweet, it really is."

He adds, "By the way, how is the First Lady's online bullying campaign going?"

Corden later shared that San Francisco has banned bus tours from going by the house used in the opening credits of the show 'Full House'. He reported that the San Francisco tweeted, "DO NOT GO NEAR THE 'FULL HOUSE' RESIDENCE AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE."

The joke quickly caught on, with new tweets mocking Trump's original all-caps rant, with ‘To Iranian President Rouhani’ being followed by everything from Liam Neeson’s ‘Taken’ speech to absolute gibberish.

"To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER EVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP. NEVER GONNA LET YOU DOWN. NEVER GONNA RUN AROUND AROUND AND DESERT YOU. NEVER GONNA MAKE YOU CRY. NEVER GONNA SAY GOODBYE. NEVER GONNA TELL A LIE AND HURT YOU," wrote comedy writer and director, Zack Bornstein.

"To Iranian President Rouhani: YO I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT WHAT I REALLY REALLY WANT SO TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT WHAT YOU REALLY REALLY WANT I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT WHAT I REALLY REALLY WANT SO TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT WHAT YOU REALLY REALLY WANT I WANNA HUH I WANNA HUH I WANNA HUH I WANNA," wrote Lindsay Ellis, writer and producer.

“To Iranian President Rouhani: RONALD WEASLEY! HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR! I AM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED! YOUR FATHER’S NOW FACING AN INQUIRY AT WORK AND IT’S ENTIRLEY YOUR FAULT! IF YOU PUT ANOTHER TOE OUT OF LINE WE’LL BRING YOU STRAIGHT HOME!” one Twitter user wrote, trolling the President.

As people mock Trump's tweet, treating it as the president blowing off hot air, the implications of a world leader using social media to wage potential war against another nation is a bit terrifying. The Iranian government responded to Trump's threats by promising military force.

Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami said the U.S. and its allies 'don't understand any other language than force', and announced that Tehran would be producing a line of missiles.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps' commander Gholam Hossein Gheybparvar did dismiss Trump's comments as empty threats in an attempt to impose 'psychological warfare'. The militia commander said Trump 'wouldn’t dare make the mistake of taking action against Iran'.
