Irish KFC account takes a hit at US President Donald Trump.

KFC UK and Ireland has taken another brilliant hit at McDonald’s, taking on the President of the United States in the same shot.  You may remember KFC Ireland’s fantastic St. Patrick’s Day video, one of our funniest in 2017, which tore apart their rival McDonald’s and Ronald's feeble attempt to celebrate the Irish national holiday.

The embarrassing McDonald’s Shamrock Shake bagpipes earlier in the year paved the way for KFC’s Aran-jumper-clad expert Randy O'Brien and his pints of chicken, fantastic takes on Irish-language spelling patterns and his “Extended Family” bucket.

McDonald’s has taken another hit at the hand of KFC, however, who ripped off President Donald Trump’s threat to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to have a go at their fast-food rival once again.

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 came after President Trump was goaded into an early 2018 tweet by the North Korean leader, who used his New Year speech to threaten the US with the threat of a nuclear strike. Stating that there was a nuclear button always on his desk, of course, Kim Jong Un knew the best way to bait the US President and it wasn’t long until he was talking about his own massive button.

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.'" Trump tweeted.

"Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

Some Twitter users were impressed with the quick humor behind the tweet:

Now I wonder what @Wendys and @MoonPie have to say about all this.

Others were despairing that the fast-food giant was making light of nuclear war:

what stage of capitalism is it where brands imitate threats of nuclear war to sell fried chicken pic.twitter.com/Fsu8xvi8ng

When you idiots are done chuckling about this:
There will be no US left and everyone will think that you invented eating garbage food.

What do you reckon of KFC’s tweet?

Trump may be a KFC fan but that didn't save him from a ribbing from the fast food chain. Donald J. Trump/Twitter
