Can tiny fingers press such a big button?

It's good to know his *Button* still works.  Bet he didn't mean to call it that.

Can we please impeach this madman for threatening all mankind with a nuclear war?

I'm pretty sure this comment is going to end up pushing plenty of Farkers' buttons.
 
2018-01-03 12:14:34 AM  
yup..so-called leader of the free world is a goddamned 8 year old.    This is either the MOST shameful f*cking thing he's said yet...or there is major league bad news coming up for him...we'll see.

Fortunately, there's no button.

If you had one weapon and one target you could use a button.

We have thousands of weapons spread all over the world with thousands of potential targets.

There's no button.

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the "Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times." Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works! I have tiny hands and a small penis
 
2018-01-03 12:16:49 AM  
Besides, the only men who brag about the size of their "button" usually don't pack enough to call it something more impressive than a button.
 
2018-01-03 12:17:13 AM  
Yea, I am not surprised at all............. Seriously, it's like this crap is becoming; 'normal'......

NO!!!!  No. Just tell him he nuked the entire continent and he's late for his golf appointment.  Which do you think he'll worry about?

Sorry to hear that. But what's that have to do with trump's tweet?
 
2018-01-03 12:17:32 AM  
Trump's button doesn't work. If he orders a nuclear strike his admirals and generals are going to laugh at him. Then they're going to say, "Oh, you were serious?". And then they're going to cut him off from the chain of command entirely. Even the warmongers amongst that group don't want to go around dropping nukes just because the President only got one scoop of ice cream with his dinner.

Trump's staff just got one of these and told him what a big boy he is.

Someone should overlay this with Obama's account (or POTUS at the time), change the date to 2013, and watch fake news readers go into fits of rage over this suspiciously newly discovered tweet. I'm sure many of the comments will be about how they're so glad America has a real President now.
 
2018-01-03 12:18:45 AM  
OMFG.

Someone wrote it in a previous thread, and I thought they were joking.

WTF is going on in his little pea brain?

Fark anyone and everyone who thought handing this smack-talking douchecanoe our nuclear launch codes was a good idea.

Reality-TV has become reality. The new norm. And we as a collective consciousness have become immune to it.

The gas-lighting of our culture is complete.

I hope those who can save us from this absolute farkery do it soon.
 
2018-01-03 12:19:13 AM  
God I hope it's an easy button from Staples

2018-01-03 12:19:27 AM  
Any man who has to say he is the king is no king.  Any weapon that you have to proclaim is the biggest, must not be that impressive.

Leaders do not do these kinds of things, they do not have to.  They let the minor states scream and stamp their feet as they continue on with their work.  A leader has no need to wave their factory made dick at the masses to get their point across.

We do not have a leader.


We may never have one again at this rate.
 
2018-01-03 12:20:09 AM  
It has come to this; euphemistic dick waving from the goddamned president. Farks sake...

So, how does that football thing with the codes work?  Unfortunately, I think I need to know a lot more about this subject.

That would be me. And I'm just as gobsmacked by the whole thing. I can't believe this is real.
 
2018-01-03 12:23:52 AM  
This is VERY newsworthy.  Our president is taunting nuclear bomb monkey to prove his button is big enough and works.  And nuclear bomb monkey is right next to China, Japan and South Korea.  That's the state of our State Dept.

Sum ting wong. Drumfp is regressing quickly and i don't think the white house can hide it much longer.
 
2018-01-03 12:24:59 AM  
Sorry, no.  This would have been damn silly posturing 1949-1989 as well.  I certainly remember Reagan's "I'm proud to announce that Congress outlawed Russia.  We will begin bombing immediately (but was young enough to take it as a joke like Ronnie did)".  We were lucky to survive one cold war (with at least one dementia-reduced president), we don't need to risk any more.

Remember that day when his attorney took credit for a self-incriminating tweet to cover for Trump? Is it too much to hold out hope that its just an idiot staffer?

It authorizes access to all the targeting options, and identifies the originator of launch orders.

Everybody in a chain of command still has to concur before anything moves.

But first somebody has to decide what the target(s) is/are, and what we wish to do to them. Then the best approach to doing the desired damage has to be assessed, based on weapons system availability, expected countermeasures, etc. Assets may well have to be repositioned to deliver the desired weapon on target.

It's nowhere near as easy as "push the button" but nobody may have told Trump that.
 
2018-01-03 12:28:10 AM  
People 30 years from now will think we are all lunatics for living through this nightmare and not doing anything to stop it. Our country had done worse things than Trump, but nothing purely stupider or more reckless. There's no strategy or calculation, just monkey-brained narcissistic shiatslinging.
