Some people are outraged over Trump’s lies and the nonsense that comes out of his mouth. Others are amused by his antics while others actually believe everything that comes out of his mouth is gospel.
Here is an idea though. Trump has become a danger to national security. Let me explain.
Imagine we have Nukes launched at us by Russia, China or North Korea. The person who would press the button is a college educated, highly trained officer. This person is commanded by Trump who is lying an average of 7.6 times a day by factcheck a nonprofit non-partisan website and is ordered to retaliate.
This officer could be in a remote location such as a missile silo or deep under the water in a sub. In such a location this officer would be out of the loop on current up-to-date real time information and would have to largely rely and trust that Trump is telling the truth and not insane when he makes the order to launch nukes.
Would Missiles be Launched?
Maybe the officer would press the button to launch the weapons but with the track record of this lying president who, many consider insane by his actions and tweets, would this officer hesitate to respond to the order?
If this officer had to launch a nuke on Trump’s say so would he? God help us if Trump finally opens his mouth and truth comes out and Nukes need to be launched. Who’s going to believe him?
Not only is the launch officer in a highly tense situation but now the officer has additional pressure on trying to figure out if this is a lawful order from someone who is sane and rational.
Some people say this officer shouldn’t think but just follow orders. Well, that was the defense of Nazi military officials who were prosecuted at Nuremberg. Just following orders.
I hope this officer thinks. A launch would bring us into a nuclear holocaust.
See, Trump is like the boy that cried wolf too many times. He has tweeted so many things that have no basis in reality and many are out right lies.
This is one of the reasons Trump has become a liability to America’s national security.
