Comedian’s Joke About Nuking Reno Falls Flat

Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve isn’t laughing at a joke from comedian Jim Jefferies, who encouraged North Korea to bomb Reno. Schieve says the joke falls flat for Reno residents because it sounds very threatening. Tensions between the White House and North Korea continue to escalate causing many to fear the use of nuclear weapons. Mayor Schieve says under the current political climate, that kind of humor doesn’t resonate well with her. She advises Jefferies to clean up his act. Jefferies is scheduled to make an appearance in Reno at the Silver Legacy September 9.
