    I really have no idea what to say to this. Our president has said some stupid things on twitter but this is just... how the hell can you even try and defend this? Can we please get someone to take away his twitter.

    You're right, he should just give them the nuclear technology instead.

    That’s one tweet of Trump’s I don’t have a problem with.

    I'm afraid twitter is the only thing keeping him from playing with buttons

    I don't know whose whether Trumps is bigger than Kim's or not. I'd say they both have pretty big butts on.

    To avoid certain complete death of the planet and all life forms, it would be good if both of them had a handshake rather than the nuke death button finger tap showdown. 76146ed26d255935a8a855943f8d957a.jpg

    I just hope the nuclear button isn't by the Amazon dash button that he uses to reorder hairspray.

    Seriously though, the local news made a big deal about how he doesn't actually have a button on his desk for nuking shit. SUCH A LIAR

    Donald trump is a fucking internet troll. This dude has been in an internet beef with a dictator and hasn’t and won’t do a thing. Trump just loves reactions. I don’t think he would actually do it.

    He ain't gonna launch a nuke. Only if the Korean fat-man did it first. Thinking that Trump would initiate something like that is liberal hyperbole.

    You actually trust this unhinged MF?? Yeah... I don't... He grabs pussy... I don't trust him as far as I can throw him and he's a fucking Hutt...

    You saying that he won't launch a nuke is conservative hyperbole.

    As someone pretty familiar with how the nuclear part of our war-making machine works, I'd say that this is on the hyperbolic side. First, no one person gets to just "push a button" (the closest is the Weapons Officer, who literally pulls a trigger). You need two-person concurrence to give the order. If the President wants to, he has to get General Mattis or one of a select few people to concur. And in this particular case, against NK, if he did do so he wouldn't case a worldwide nuclear conflagration as Reagan would've if he'd have launched against Gorbachev or Kruschev v. Kennedy. Because there's no provocation for doing so, he would likely go to a UN War Crimes tribunal. Even the Most Powerful Man in the World (TM) has to follow international law.

    Now, I don't doubt that if NK launched on us or our allies, Trump is probably more likely than, say, President Obama or President Bush and their respective staffs to retaliate with a nuclear strike of our own.

    If Trump wants to nuke NK and Mattis does not want to, doesn't Trump merely need to fire Mattis (and whoever else has any common sense) until he finds someone that also wants to nuke NK?

    Also I'm curious about the trigger. Is it actually just like a gun trigger, i.e. a curved bit of metal shaped for a finger to pull, with (hopefully) a guard around it?
