Though considering their mental ages/levels of maturity, maybe we should ask “who’s the real Missile Boy?” Adrastos has the details below; earlier this week Bob Corker told us what he really thinks (the Oval Office is functioning as a child’s playpen), and given Orange Narcissus’ record as well as his temperament…yeah, I think concern should be on our minds. Concern…and hope that the alleged grown ups keep a lid on things (who knew we’d be relying on the maturity of someone nicknamed “Mad Dog?”)
At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.”
But what’s even more unsettling, as I have previously written, is that Trump has a history of making comments about nuclear weapons that both display his profound ignorance about this all-important subject and suggest he believes a nuclear conflict is inevitable and perhaps destined for the near future.
Oh, and while our reality show president pouts (and lashes out at NBC), Puerto Rico is becoming a humanitarian catastrophe, wildfires are raging in California…I think I’m getting tired of all this winning…
