The world is facing the possibility of nuclear war because a maniacal, 71 year-old reality TV host doesn’t know when it’s time to stop playing to his base.
On the campaign trail, Trump showed signs that he was unhinged and unfit to be Commander-in- Chief. Now, just over six months into his presidency, the world is facing the possibility of nuclear war because a maniacal, 71 year-old reality TV host doesn’t know when it’s time to stop playing to his base.
The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency indicated on Tuesday, that North Korea had the technology to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and mount it on a missile that could reach American soil. Trump reacted with an off-the-cuff remark that sent shockwaves across the globe.
From the New York Times,
President Trump’s threat to unleash “fire and fury” against North Korea sent a shudder through Asia on Wednesday, raising alarm among allies and adversaries and, to some observers, making the possibility of military conflict over the North’s nuclear program seem more real.
The real story here is lurking behind Trump and the way he seems to blur the lines between playing a president on TV, and actually being president.
Perhaps Bari Weiss sums it up best in the New York Times,
Remember Hillary’s line? … “A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”
Never in the history of American politics have words rung so true.
But it’s not just Trump’s tweeting that has led the world to the brink of war. This White House lies, and just about everyone knows it. CNN calls it a ‘credibility crisis’ that is backed up by polling data.
A CNN poll Tuesday said that nearly three-quarters of Americans did not trust what is coming out of the White House.
