The best way to keep his fingers away would be to impeach him. But that is not likely to happen any time soon, so I guess a trip to Tierra Del Fuego is in order.

1. Force him to resign.

Jingling keys in front of him would probably work.

He has tiny thumbs. Gonna need a fist button.

/think about it, would Trump just push a button?

$50 solves the problem.

They're even the right color.

According to the linked YankeeWhite clearance description, "The criteria include U.S. citizenship, unquestionable loyalty, and an absolute absense of any foreign influence over the individual, his family, or "persons to whom the individual is closely linked."

It's pretty farked up that his aides have to pass a screening that the president himself would not pass.

He's not without his faults, though.

Sadly, with what I have seen so far with Trump's administration, the nuclear missile aimed at Moscow - will land instead in Tierra Del Fuego.

The instructions for preventing our President from starting the nuclear apocalypse are literally, "Do not taunt the dynamite monkey."

Sweet f#cking Christ.

You don't think someone in the mainstream media should be reminding us what a terrible mistake we made last November?

Until enough Americans get their heads out of their asses long enough to actually cast informed votes in most or all elections, the question is academic because even if we survive Trump, the 28% of Americans that make up the dirty floor film of our nation will continue to drive outcomes sheerly through their consistent determination to ruin everything out of spite.

To be fair, the 44% who didn't vote is a bigger number--and threat.

He's probably never had a Yoo-Hoo.

I bet we can distract him for at least 4 weeks. Have the secret service drive him from 7-11 to Circle K, back and forth.

Then, introduce him to Slushies. Repeat with new gas station commodities every few days.

I should be in charge. I'm a damn genius.

We need a new tag besides Smart and Funny.  Maybe Depressing because that's what this is.  Sigh...

Sad.  That way when you click it, it says "Sad!", just like Glorious Leader does with 50% of his tweets.

At least we know that the people launching the nukes can ask this kind of question...

...and get fired for it.

Something as potentially devastating as a preemptive nuclear strike should NEVER have been in the hands of one person. Ever. I don't care who the president is, that's too much power for one person to have. It's sad that it took having Trump as president to make people realize that. If nothing else, hopefully Trump is making people aware of the dangers of an executive branch with ever-broader powers. It's time to reel back the president's powers, and I don't mean just this president.

My plan:

Give Trump a fake button.
When he pushes it (he will) the special effects kick in. (Think sub woofers and strobes)
Rush Trump to Iron mountain and seal him in. (for his own safety!)
Tell him he is running the country from there. (Phones actually go to paid actors.)
Weld the door closed.

Yeah it is weird how we have all these checks and balances since they are easily overriden with the power of nukes.

Not much to balance when it can easily be wiped away with one decision.

Cut off his hands and lobotomize him, to start. The gesticulating would be unbigly, but otherwise I don't know that anyone could tell much difference.

Or maybe make it so one asshole can't end humanity no matter who is in the big chair.

Yeah but Trudeau is such a likeable world leader I almost hate opposing him for it.

Since nobody gets out alive anyway, "what difference does it make"?
