  1. Axios is a good source. This is a good article . i did not know about the raqa bombing.

    This maniac also wants to drop nuclear bombs on hurricanes which would do nothing but further irradiate the shit of the planet.

    Scoop: Trump suggested nuking hurricanes to stop them from hitting U.S.

    President Trump has suggested multiple times to senior Homeland Security and national security officials that they explore using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes from hitting the United States, according to sources who have heard the president’s private remarks and been briefed on a National Security Council memorandum that recorded those comments.

    Behind the scenes: 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?'”

  2. Thanks for the link. I’m still trying to figure out who’s in charge at the White House. I’m currently reading a book about how the Trump White House functions. It seems to me that most of the White House staff (including his daughter and son-and-law) serve as minders trying to keep Trump from doing himself too much damage.
