"If the United States ever really wanted you done with, you would never see it coming. We have the means to either take just you out, or your entire country. And you would never see it coming. Just be grateful that our President is not the nut ball that you are."
Here it is, now 2018. We have had Donald Trump as our President for just about a year. We saw him on the campaign trail for about a year before that. One would think we would understand his modus operandi by now. Unfortunately, many don't. I know most in the press do not. Why do I say that? Trump constantly "tweaks" people. Mostly people he needs to have motivated. Like whom? Like the "Rocket Man" for example. Little Kim. Kim Jong-un, the brutal dictator of North Korea.
Unlike Obama, who was cowed by this little runt in North Korea, Trump like to play with him. For starters, Donald Trump is about a parsec or so smarter than Kim. Plus he has been around the block a few more times than Kim. He knows from his security briefings what Kim has in his hip pocket for arms. So when Kim says, "I have a nuclear button on my desk", as far as Trump is concerned, that was nothing more than a low hanging fast ball. How could he resist?
The funniest part however, when Trump responded by Tweet that "his nuclear button was bigger", was how the press reacted. "OMG! How could he say such a thing? How un-Presidential!" Note to press - Donald Trump is not Barack Obama. Trump will not be cowed or intimidated. Kim's boast was not worthy of a normal response, so he got a "tongue in cheek" response from Trump. As the old slang from yesteryear would say, "Trump pimped him". In other words, Trump was out to get Kim's goat.
For those who pay attention (not the press, as they never do), we know there IS NO SUCH THING AS A NUCLEAR BUTTON!!! Donald Trump, like Presidents before him, has a high ranked military man who accompanies him everywhere and carries the "nuclear football". For the President to authorize a nuclear strike, it is not as simple as just "pushing a button" like in Dr. Strangelove. Although I don't know what they are, I do know there are certain safeguards built in against a rouge or accidental launch.
This morning, some long haired hippy freak 80 year old Senator got up on the Senate floor and accused the President of "malpractice" for bragging about his "button". Oh, did I mention this Senator has been in office since dirt was invented and he is also an East Coast progressive? It is a responsive like this, from the "Swampy Left", which will just about guarantee the President a second term, should he want it.
So heads up, Little Kim. Our "Button" is bigger and badder. Okay - if you want to know the real truth, here it is. If the United States ever really wanted you done with, you would never see it coming. We have the means to either take out just you, or your entire country. And you would never see it coming. Just be grateful that our President is not the nut ball that you are.
