Donald Trump is such a danger to America that even the most hardcore Republicans are worried that he’s going to set the country ablaze. Recently, Gabriel Sherman stated that a senior Republican had told him that Trump might have to be physically restrained from initiating a nuclear strike and starting World War III.
In a segment with Chris Hayes, Sherman said:
I just want to put into context a conversation that I had with a very prominent Republican today who literally was saying that they imagine Gen. Kelly and Sec. Mattis had conversations about if Trump lunged for the nuclear football, what would they do? Would they tackle him? Literally, physically restrain him from putting the country at sort of perilous risk, and that’s the kind of situation we’re in.”
While the image of having Kelly and Mattis somehow restraining an unhinged Trump is comical, no one should ignore the fact that the President of the United States actually IS that dangerous and erratic, and could very well thrust us into nuclear war. Trump is literally THAT irresponsible and officials actually need to consider these options because he cannot be trusted. He is the last person who should have been given the nuclear codes, and has demonstrated in countless ways that he thinks nothing of abusing his power.
The Republican party has severely screwed America over by electing this idiot. Thanks to their greedy agenda, they are now having to face the fact that they put a very dangerous man in power and he is completely unhinged. Unfortunately, America is now living in fear because of it.
