Reckless, Impulsive and Stupid

To all those who thought electing a businessman who stiffed people who did work for him; who had to pay $25 million to settle a fraud case against Trump University; who's failed at numerous business endeavors; who insulted a POW and a Purple Heart recipient; who has been proved again and again and again to be a liar of epic proportions; and who has no depth of knowledge of foreign or domestic policies or American history, and is a lazy, intemperate bully:  

This is what happens when you think electing a reckless know-nothing will stick a collective finger in the eye of the government you detest. If Trump's impromptu madman threats to the Korean madman result in the unthinkable, YOU are to blame for putting America and her allies at risk.

We on the sane side of the aisle knew Trump was a disaster. You thought it would be fun to "shake things up by trying something different."

Threats of nuclear war by a mentally unstable president who spends more time tweeting and golfing than soberly working with experts on extremely volatile  world problems is what you voted for.

You own this dangerous, impulsive idiot.

Jonathan Freedlund at The Guardian writes—

Trump has taken us to the brink of nuclear war. 

Can he be stopped? 

This was the moment many Americans, along with the rest of the world, feared. 

This – precisely this – was what alarmed us most about the prospect of Donald Trump becoming president of the United States. Not that he would hire useless people or that he would tweet all day or use high office to enrich himself and his family or that he’d be cruel, bigoted and divisive – though those were all concerns. 

No, the chief anxiety provoked by the notion of Trump in the White House was this: that he was sufficiently reckless, impulsive and stupid to bring the world to the brink of nuclear war.

The right wing whiners are shifting blame for Trump's stupid "fire and fury" threats to Obama. They're the same people who bitched whenever Obama mentioned George Dubya Bush's lousy economy and Iraq War. They're the ones who said BUSH ISN'T PRESIDENT NOW, YOU ARE OBAMA!

But now it's Obama's fault Trump opened his piehole and threatened Kim Jong Un with nuclear destruction?

Now we have that little fat boy in Bedminster New Joisy. In my view, he's liable to do anything. Psychotic.

There is nothing to fear. Unless you are a Godless atheist. "Pastor Robert Jeffress says it's cool with God if Trump attacks North Korea". Jeffress said via statement "When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary - including war - to stop evil". (Link).

Predisent Trump is ready for war!

"If thousands die, they're going to die over there and he's told me that to my face" Lindsay Graham said recently on teevee.

Not convinced this rises to the level of the Cuban Missle Crises.
