"It's the first time they heard it like they heard it, maybe it wasn't tough enough"

Can someone explain that to me? Is he inserting a jab at Obama but also saying they need tough talk, but also it wasn't tough enough?

Trump: "I'm invincible!"

North Korea: "You're a loony."

About 11PM last night my wife's phone sounded the emergency alarm.  Turned out it was an Amber Alert, but I spent the first few seconds wondering if Trump really did it.

And when asked what that means he said "you'll see" which translated from trumpspeak is "I've got nothing"

Also noteworthy that the military is now said to be very strong, even though there's been no change since Obama. Trump told us all Obama decimated the military. He wouldn't just flat out lie to us, would he?

Just like how he's modernized our nuclear arsenal in 6 months.

The only action Trump has taken regarding the military was banning 10-15,000 of them.

The minute he got elected he had an immediate hard-on over the fantasy of being in control of the most powerful military force in the world and using it to teach some other country a lesson. It's inevitable.

How about no?  Does no work for you?

Because every step this asshole takes towards launching a nuke, up to and including the very act itself, is one that needs to be rubbed in your face like a fresh shiat you had the f*cking gall to drop right at our f*cking feet.

Best case scenario is that China and Russia, having depended on us to be "the sane one" will step in to squeeze NK. Or us, whichever seems most likely to get a good outcome for the rest of the world.
Hey Trumpers, you still happy campers?

Nothing inspires confidence in a dicey situation involving diplomacy and strategic nuclear deterrence than a leader who didn't even know what the nuclear triad was a year and a half ago, right Trump voters?
TRUMP: I think - I think, for me, nuclear is just the power, the devastation is very important to me.

In Trump's mind, he hasn't failed America, America has failed him.  He's old, mentally weakening, and is losing the authority he once had.  His grand visions and plans have come to nought, so America is undeserving to continue.  We're about to get Trump's own Nero Decree.  He'd rather see the world go up in flames than admit he is, and always has been, a failure.

Oh how much it hurt to click the Smart button on this. Not because it isn't smart - it is very insightful - but because of how scary it is that it might actually be true.

No, I am not joking.

The scary thing is this is a win-win for Trump. They back down, he's a tough guy. They nuke Japan or S Korea, he gets to blow stuff up too. They nuke the US, it's just coastal elites who voted for Hillary.

"You'll see."  That's what strong leadership sounds like, folks, especially if that statement is made regarding nuclear weapons.

He's spent his entire life pining for the approval of those coastal elites. The only reason the voter fraud panel exists is because he's convinced he won New York and Florida.

He doesn't give a tinker's fark about the people that actually voted for him.

At this point, only the Trump Army will see the first two scenarios as a win for Trump. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together realizes Trump's behavior up to this point is childish and he has only made this tense situation worse.
The third scenario is too much to think about right now.

One of them went full Libertarian and sees literally no difference between Trump and Hillary and thinks we need to Balkanize the US to save it. No, really.
