How can you eat at a time like this when our nation is on the verge of nukular war? Fortunately we have a strong leader reigning over us. Please pass the ketchup.

Sam, all he has is language. Not great intelligence, nor experience (of any useful kind for a presidency), no understanding, or empathy, or particular bravery. No diplomatic or political skills. He just blusters. That's all he's ever done.

He assumes that because North Korea is ignoring - no - seeing his bluster and raising, that there must have been an insufficient application of bluster initially.

That's all he's got to offer, personally.

God help us.

Unfortunately, it did take him away from his golf game. Although not his golf course.

Before he bought a gun, George Zimmerman was just another workaday racist asshole. Once he had a gun, he put himself in situation after situation hoping to get a chance to use it to 'defend' himself and his neighborhood. Eventually he murdered a Black teen named Trayvon Martin to prove that he was justified in carrying that gun.

45, or as I'll call him here, "Orange George," isn't just carrying a Kel-Tec PF-9. He's got thousands of nukes to prove his point.

We have a lot more to worry about here than bluster.

Here's a nice little illustration of our prez that I just came across, based on a "motivational" talk he gave to students at religious Liberty University in 2012:

Quote

At the end of the 35-minute talk, he toys playfully with the crowd, saying he has two core points he always closes with: Get a prenuptial agreement before you get married, and — here he raises his voice — “get even.”

“Don’t let people take advantage — get even. If nothing else, people will see that and say: ‘I’m going to let [those people] alone because they are tough customers.’ I always say it, but I won’t say it to you, because this is a different audience.”

Trump pauses. “You don’t want to get even, do you?” He smiles. “Yeah, I think you do.”

This is the ethical and philosophical guiding principle of our president: get even.

His voters love him for it. Vengeance is mine, saith the Donald.

FWIW, the WaPo's Factchecker looked at Trump's claim that our nuclear arsenal was "now far stronger and more powerful than ever before", and gave it four Pinocchios.

Our nuclear arsenal is second to none and many orders of magnitude greater than NKs. But Trump's comment was just more bluster and self-aggrandizement.

Pres. Trump needs to get educated on our nukular arsenal by the Sec. of Energy, and he should do it before he appoints him head of Homeland Security.
