I highly doubt Obama just has a red button at his desk that launches missiles. Seems like a pretty useless thing to have on your desk. I'd much rather use that space to install a button that opens a trapdoor in your room: it's reusable, cheaper and has a more directly positive effect on your well-being.

It is true, here is proof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zU9lv_WqK6k 184.66.160.91 03:19, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure the button is actually INSIDE the football-shaped briefcase. -- Hkmaly (talk) 11:09, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

The red button activates a flashing red sign that says "PRESS GREEN BUTTON"... which turns off the flashing red sign. 74.140.141.101 19:49, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

"incomplete|The Nuclear football should be mentioned, the button doesn't launch all nuclear capabilities." The explanation seems to be complete for me. I don't see any reason to mention the "Nuclear football": there is no reference to it in the comic and what the real "red button" actually looks like is irrelevant. 173.245.49.209 12:26, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
