Former Nuke Missile Officer Explains Why Morning Joe’s Trump Story Is Absolutely Frightening…

We’re forced to really confront a frightening prospect because Americans just aren’t taking this election seriously. What would it mean for Trump to have his short stubby finger on the nuclear button?

Then there’s this very sobering instruction from John Noonan, a former nuclear missile officer who tries to describe how sacred and harrowing it is to actually bear the burden of sending out a monstrously destructive weapon:

He thinks he can “negotiate” every other country in doing what we want to happen in the world instead of doing it ourselves. The second part I’m shaky on – it depends on Scarborough’s account because there’s very little of Trump acknowledging that this would be his foreign policy. But it’s certainly possible.

People laugh at this prospect, but without having seen Trump with any experience in a governmental position, how do we know?

And also, we might be able to take comfort in the fact that his fingers are so short and stubby he won’t be able to reach the nuke button or press it hard enough.
