“Somewhere about 10 to 12 minutes into the meeting with the president a red button flashed on his desk on which I thought was a nuclear launch button,” he reveals in his newsletter today.
“He pressed the button and I said, ‘Mr. President, did you just launch a nuclear weapon?’ President Trump laughed and said, ‘Yeah, I launched an atomic bomb.’ He said, ‘No, I’m ordering a diet Coke.’”
Behold: The “Coke button.”

Savage, who is broadcast to 10 million, said Trump then asked if he and his wife would like one.
“I died laughing. I thought he wanted us out of there. I thought this button that they put in…when they want you out of a meeting, it rings and then the aide comes in and takes you out. He said, ‘No, no.’ He says, ‘I just wanted a soda. Would you like one?’” Savage wrote of the day he had with Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Chief of Staff John Kelly.
