Behold the President of the United States of America: “Trump suggested nuking hurricanes to stop them from hitting U.S.”
President Trump has suggested multiple times to senior Homeland Security and national security officials that they explore using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes from hitting the United States, according to sources who have heard the president’s private remarks and been briefed on a National Security Council memorandum that recorded those comments. Behind the scenes: During one hurricane briefing at the White House, Trump said, “I got it. I got it. Why don’t we nuke them?” according to one source who was there. “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?” the source added, paraphrasing the president’s remarks.
It’s like a dark sitcom: a lazy, indifferent president hates the job and pitches increasingly blithe acts of insanity in the hope that he will be 25thd out of office, but the GOP loves it and works round-the-clock to keep him strapped to the horse, while congressional Democrats are just too spineless and compromised to oppose him.
