As his daughter, Heidi, sat in the audience, Ho promised that a strike on the U.S. mainland was "inevitable" in the speech he made at the UN General Assembly.
The Ho address began as the Pentagon announced that it had flown some badass bombers and fighter jet escorts to the farthest point north of the Korean DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), going farther than any such U.S. aircraft this century.
Defense Department spokesman, Dana White, said in a statement "This mission is a demonstration of U.S. resolve and a clear message that the president has many military options to defeat any threat."
White added, "North Korea's weapons program is a grave threat to the Asia-Pacific region and the entire international community. We are prepared to use the full range of military capabilities to defend the U.S. homeland and our allies."
According to the Pentagon, B-1B bombers from Guam, and F-15C Eagle fighter escorts from Okinawa, Japan, flew in international airspace over waters east of North Korea on Saturday.
Unlike other "show of force" missions, our birds were not accompanied by South Korean or Japanese planes. We simply wanted to show North Korea just how big our gonads are.
"While conducted unilaterally, this mission was coordinated with regional allies--namely the Republic of Korea [aka South Korea] and Japan--and was a strong testament to our ironclad alliance," U.S. Pacific Command spokesman Cmdr. Dave Benham told Fox News.
On Friday, Trump went on the rhetorical offensive against Adipose Kim.
"Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before," Trump tweeted. He had previously announced increased economic sanctions against NoKo on Thursday. The sanctions will target any countries that do business with North Korea, but this is really aimed at China, who does almost 90 percent of the North's trade.
Due to the fact that President Trump spoke about North Korea, the liberal mainstream media and Democrats tried to put words in his mouth, accusing him of threatening NoKo preemptively.
"North Korea's nuclear weapons and missile development is a grave threat to peace and security in our world and it is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal, rogue regime."Kim (aka 'Rocket Man') went ballistic hours later saying Trump was "deranged."

It's like the pot calling the kettle 'stoned'.
On a positive note, it looks like Trump has gotten China and Russia on board with the sanction program and it's possible that China could severely impede NoKo's ability to fund its missile and nuclear program.
And while fat Kim is saying Trump would "pay dearly" for threatening to "totally destroy" his hell-hole of a country if the U.S. had to defend ourselves or our allies against a North Korea attack, hopefully the sanctions will put an end to the bluster.
