SEOUL — North Korea accused the United States on Friday of circulating “preposterous falsehoods” and conducting a vicious smear campaign, after Washington charged an alleged hacker for the North Korean government in connection with major cyberattacks, including a 2014 assault on Sony Pictures Entertainment.

1. But "preposterous falsehoods" is what republicans do

So for NK to get all snippy about that is, well, it's just downright skanky. Guess NK will counter with their own barrage of preposterous falsehoods to balance out the republican #PrepFalsies.

2. Did our mean little old investigation of N. Korean hacking hurt your little feelings?"

Are you gonna throw a tantrum and cancel your nuclear program promises? Oh, please, please, please don't do that. We'll do anything if you'll just be good.

Other than that, this story makes complete sense.
