#RocketMan isn’t the only trending hashtag as a result of Donald Trump’s address to the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday.
#TrumpsUNSpeechtheMovie also took over Twitter Tuesday after the speech in which Trump called North Korean leader “Rocket Man” and threatened to “totally detstroy” that nation if the United States or its allies are threatened. The new Twitter game has users coming up with parodies of movie titles to fit the all-over-the-place speech.
Some standouts include “How To Lose An Ally In 10 Minutes,” playing off of the Kate Hudson/Matthew McConaughey rom-com. “Apocalypse Soon” plays off the classic movie “Apocalypse Now,” and also plays into all our fears about provoking a States-bound North Korean missile. “The Big Shill,” plays off the 1983 Lawrence Kasdan-directed Boomer drama “The Big Sick.”
In the speech, Trump addressed a range of topics, including terrorism, migration and the U.S. economy, but the standout moment was his rhetoric on North Korea. If the U.S. is “forced to defend itself and its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” Trump said. He also said that North Korea “threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of life.”
He also repeated a nickname for Kim Jong-un that many are calling childish: “Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime,” Trump said of the North Korean leader, repeating an Elton John-themed dig the president has used before, but this time in a formal setting. “It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future.”
