Trump 2018 - Road to Midterms/Nuclear War

Really didn’t think I’d see nuclear war in my lifetime. Nice knowing you all.


#723

Clever. They can’t accuse you of being in cahoots with a nation while you’re both engaged in assured mutual destruction.

Well played Trump. 56 dimensional chess. Always 3 steps ahead.


#724

The problem is the guy mumbling into his ear now isn’t a relatively competent military suit like McMasters, it’s John Bolton who genuinely wants WW3. Sets my teeth on edge


#725

Told my manager about this and she went on a rant about her childhood in Italy was ruined by the continual threat of nuclear war. Said her and her family lived in a state of fear for most of the eighties. Cannot believe we might be returning to that state of affairs.


#726

Nuclear obliteration. Finally. Can’t wait.


#727

His random usage of capital letters absolutely creases me up in usual circumstances. Less so when loads of people are going to die.

It’s absolutely bizarre that anyone in a position of power would use a social media account to air their daily grievances. Like, i’ve worked at places with >10 employees where one of them would very quickly suggest the boss doing that’s not a good look and completely erodes any authority they might have.


#728

gets pretty boring when any escalation involving America and co prompts “oh, here we go, Nuclear war!” Nuclear war Nuclear war, this time, Nuclear war!
There won’t be a Nuclear war ffs. I’ll put my life on it…


#729

This does feel a little more dull than the nuclear war between North Korea and the US that happened a couple of months ago.


#730

Are we as fucked now as we were when he was banging on about fire and fury towards North Korea? Because that was about a year ago.


#731

“Nuclear war is an impossibility” the sensible people in the room scoff, watching a senile, McDonalds-addicted chimpanzee threaten Russia with missile strikes.


#732

He had slightly more sensible people around him to talk him down then though.

He now has John Bolton.


#733

I’m not sure ‘slightly more sensible’ is really a thing with Republicans, they’re all itching to blow shit up. And Trump only ever listens to himself anyway.


#734

Maybe, but when people keep saying how fucked we all are on an almost weekly basis, you can’t blame people for shrugging their shoulders after a while. Also, ‘senile, McDonalds-addicted chimpanzee’ describes a fair few Presidents over the last 40 years


#735

Trump listens to the last person he spoke to.


#736

Don’t worry guys, he’s now tweeted to stop the arms race and how he wants to help the Russian economy. Phew.


#737

Fair point, exhibit A:

Of course Bolton will talk to him next and it’ll be back to BOMBS AWAY SUCKERS!!!


#738

So I can come out of the bunker?


#739

We came frighteningly close to nuclear war under those as well. Just because it didn’t happen doesn’t mean it won’t happen.
