…something that sounds like a bad joke, and it IS bad, but it’s no joke:
Yup. The Very Stable Genius had a brainfart, and one that was already shot down at the height of the Cold War:
During one hurricane briefing at the White House, Trump said, “I got it. I got it. Why don’t we nuke them?” according to one source who was there. “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?” the source added, paraphrasing the president’s remarks.
Asked how the briefer reacted, the source recalled he said something to the effect of, “Sir, we’ll look into that.”
Trump replied by asking incredulously how many hurricanes the U.S. could handle and reiterating his suggestion that the government intervene before they make landfall.
The briefer “was knocked back on his heels,” the source in the room added. “You could hear a gnat fart in that meeting. People were astonished. After the meeting ended, we thought, ‘What the f—? What do we do with this?'”
Do the same thing that they did when Eisenhower was president and cooler heads prevailed, people…dismiss the idea on the grounds that it’s dumber than dog turds. Which could be dropped into a hurricane with better results than any number of motherfucking NUKES.
PS: Holy shit, how did I miss THIS? It came out two weeks ago:
Just more Very Stable Genius at work, I guess.
