Democrats like Vice President Joe Biden are making the argument that Donald Trump doesn’t have the restraint required to have access to nuclear launch codes if elected president. And in doing so, they’re ignoring everything we know about their candidate’s warlike tendencies.
“He has no idea what the hell he’s talking about, and guess what? That’s OK sometimes … But I’ve got a military aide with me carrying a briefcase,” Biden said. “No, I mean this sincerely. That briefcase has the nuclear codes in it and, God forbid, if something happened to the president and a decision had to be made, I open it up and the nuclear codes are there. Just imagine giving this guy access.”
Following laughter from the crowd, the vice president continued: “No, no, no, I really mean it! Imagine giving this guy access to the nuclear codes. A guy who says how he’d consider using nuclear weapons. A guy who talks about how may other countries should become nuclear powers. I mean, my God.”
Trump the loose cannon has been a popular meme for the Clinton campaign, as it seeks to present the former top diplomat as the safest bet for U.S. security and international stability.
The political left’s effort to portray Trump as crazy is an obvious effort to help voters forget just how insane Clinton is when it comes to foreign policy.
Yeah, so give them to Hillary and her private server instead!
It amazes me. They have the brass set to say this sort of thing after the FBI calls her extremely careless instead of prosecuting her. It’s like the ads she has on TV where she leans heavily on the military and tries to make it look like they really support her.
The sad part is that it is actually fooling someone.
