We have what appears to be an atomic case of monkey see monkey do as earlier today Russian President Vladimir Putin issued statements about the expansion of his nation's nuclear capabilities at a meeting of Russia’s defense ministry.
Putin, quoted by Russian agencies, said at the meeting...
“We need to strengthen the military potential of strategic nuclear forces, especially with missile complexes that can reliably penetrate any existing and prospective missile defence systems. We must carefully monitor any changes in the balance of power and in the political-military situation in the world, especially along Russian borders, and quickly adapt plans for neutralizing threats to our country.”
After hearing his best buddy bragging about the size of his missiles Trump, not being blessed with the ability of self control, immediately tweeted that he had big missiles too...
See guys, Trump's hands are normal sized!
It seems that with one thoughtless tweet, consisting of only 114 characters, Trump is trying to undo decades and decades of hard work the United States has done with other major nuclear powers to reduce this planets stockpiles of nuclear weaponry.
But who cares as long as the man-baby that will soon possess the nuclear codes that could end all life on this planet feels his manhood is superior to that of his Russian rival.
So off putting was the tweet that even Fox News' business correspondent Neil Cavuto's knees went wobbly over Trump's pissing match tweet...
“I’m thinking this out. Let’s say we get to Dow 20,000 so we’re all richer for it. But Donald Trump also promises more nukes so we’re all blown up just as we’re counting our money."
Not to piss on your corn flakes Neil but I think the wiser bet in this scenario is that we all get blown up before that "we’re all richer" part comes to fruition.
