Trump said I like war, including nuclear war.. Many times he said there was no point in having nuclear weapons unless you used them. Nearly everyone pretends he did not say this. Perhaps they think Donald is always saying nutty things he does not mean. Surely he does not mean that. or Donald is just saying that to get votes with his whacko base. Surely he does not really mean it.
Trump supporters say Maybe he did not really say that. The evil press must have faked the video you saw. Maybe he did not mean it. Maybe he was not thinking at the time. Maybe he was just electioneering to his base. Don’t worry about it. Nobody is stupid enough to start a nuclear war.
The way I look at it, if there were even a 1% chance he means it, he should not be let anywhere near the white house. Even if he were just joking, it indicates he does not understand the seriousness of his office, and he still should not be let anywhere near the big red button. Just as in Star Trek, when the captain starts behaving irrationally, he should be immediately relieved of duty.
Why is it that almost nobody but me is concerned about giving the paranoid, bellicose, egomaniac, empathy-free Trump the nuclear codes?

- Unlike me, they have little experience with mentally ill people and their strange delusions. The mentally ill become firmly convinced that things are true that are not. Most people assume Trump is much more rational than he really is. Crazy people give off small clues all the time before they do something really nuts.
- Unlike me, most people have not been on death’s door for an extended period. Most people effectively imagine they are immortal. They simply cannot objectively contemplate forces that will kill them and everyone they love such nuclear war and climate change. Whenever they think about them, they feel overwhelmed and have to shut down such thoughts.
- Christian wishful thinking. Christians are convinced God would not allow nuclear war or runaway climate change even though the majority of them believe he will any day now happily destroy the planet himself.
