Democrats concerned Trump too 'unstable' to be trusted with nukes

Congressional lawmakers raised concerns about President Donald Trump's ability to use nuclear weapons during a hearing Capitol Hill Tuesday amid bipartisan anxiety over launch process procedures and indications that the administration has considered the option of a first strike on North Korea.

Members of the Senate foreign affairs committee called into question a decades-old presidential authority to deploy nuclear weapons in what was the first congressional hearing on nuclear authorization in decades.

"We are concerned that the President of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic that he might order a nuclear weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national security interests," said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut.

Sen. Ed Markey, a Democrat from Massachusetts, echoed those concerns: "Many Americans fear that the President's words could turn into nuclear reality."

The people decided he is the right person to handle the nuke codes. The alternative universe that the left lives in does not change that.

That is the new argument from The Swamp: anyone who fights them must be crazy.

They —The Left and The Establishment Republicans — have been trying to figure out a pretense for impeachment.

Is that the best they can do?

Democrats are too “unstable” to be trusted with: Political Office, Education Jobs, Government Jobs, Media Jobs, Working around children, carrying sharp objects, firearms (definitely firearms), or much of anything - really.

The National Media has been blaring Murphy’s words all over their “news” casts. Trump is crazy and unstable and will launch an “unauthorized” nuclear attack.

Can we just get this civil war started already?

Yep, They have a point.
We have to be crazy to protect their anti American activities, collusive efforts and personal wealth building at the expense of the nation.

But a radical black dude, schooled by communists Frankie Davis and Billy Ayers, who refused to reveal a legitimate birth certificate . . .

Yeah, he could totally be trusted with the nuclear codes

“Can we just get this civil war started already?”

We have crossed the Rubicon, and it is now inevitable. No reconciliation is possible.
