Grant Stinchfield, host of the National Rifle Association's news outlet NRATV, suggested telling North Korea that Sacramento, CA, has changed its name to Guam amid news reports that North Korea threatened to launch missiles at or near the U.S. island territory.
Guam is currently preparing for a possible “imminent” missile strike. In an August 11 tweet, Stinchfield wrote, “Let’s send a note to North Korea that Sacramento changed its name to Guam!”
Let's send a note to North Korea that Sacramento changed its name to Guam!

This tweet followed an August 10 statement from the NRATV host during his show Stinchfield that media criticizing President Donald Trump’s response to North Korea are “deceitful” and “anti-American,” and that they’re doing so “simply to tear our country apart.”
UPDATE: Reached on the phone by the New York Daily News, Stinchfield apologized for suggesting that North Korea attack California and said, “It was meant as a joke and I regret it.”
