Trump just threatened nuclear war on Twitter. Bush’s ethics lawyer’s response is spot on

- Januari 02, 2018

Tonight, President Trump set the world on edge by raising the stakes in his online nuclear pissing contest with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un with this tweet.

Chief Whitehouse Ethics Lawyer to the George W. Bush Administration, Richard Painter, fired back, urging Congress and the UN to put the terrible two down for a nap and stop this temper tantrum before it gets out of control.

Then he upped the stakes with an unequivocal condemnation of the President, calling him out for a clear lack of mental fitness to continue doing his job as leader of the (nuclear holocaust-) free world.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

Trump has been in an ongoing war of words with the North Korean leader virtually since the day he took office.

On New Year’s Day, Kim Jong Un upped the ante with a televised address in which he debuted a new look and a new and improved nuclear arsenal. It was there that he revealed the desktop location of his “nuclear button.”

It was that declaration that seems to have sent the President into a rage, after a long day of rollicking tweets directed at all corners of the map.

After taking aim at everyone from Pakistan to “Fake News,” Trump turned his sights on his nemesis, “Little Rocket Man.”

But all this chest pounding and nuclear posturing isn’t rallying the support of the people, it seems to be having the opposite affect. Trump’s unhinged twitter style, when mixed with the high stakes of potential nuclear war doesn’t really inspire confidence in the leader.

If anyone’s going to sleep tonight, let’s hope someone can get Trump away from his phone and tucked safely into bed where he can calm down until no doubt provoking another international crisis tomorrow.
