According To A Source, In A Policy Briefing, Donald Trump Kept Asking Why We Couldn’t Just Nuke Shit
I’m certain that you, private citizen, uneducated in all the precise nuances of American foreign policy and not running for the president, understand all the myriad reasons we should not nuke things.
Nuclear weapons are bad, and since the Cuban Missile Crisis, when we all wisened up and realized how fucking close we were to ending human life, we’ve been actively trying to reduce our arsenal.
That said, we still have 4,500 just laying around, history-altering bombs that are all under the control of a single person. Right now, that’s Barack Obama. But we are only an election away from empowering Nelson fucking Muntz.
Watch this clip from Morning Joe, featuring former CIA and NSA Director Michael Hayden.
“If we have them, why can’t we use them?”
Say what you want about Hillary Clinton (whom many of you think SUCKS), but there’s one candidate in this election who isn’t spending the last 170 days before their possible inauguration trying to wrap their head around the concept that if we use a nuclear weapon, someone just might nuke America back.
UPDATE: Trump’s spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, denied Trump ever asked these questions.
