We’re all going to die: Nuclear Edition
As Gizmodo reports: Trump Just Dismissed the People in Charge of Maintaining [The US] Nuclear Arsenal.
The source later added, “I’m more and more coming around to the idea that we’re so very very fucked.”
That’s right. Not only is the Orange Menace recalling all senior diplomats from around the world, he has also decided to get rid of he head of the National Nuclear Security Administration and his deputy.
Trump seems to be trying to get a firm grasp on the powers he needs to start World War III, even if he does not have anyone qualified in mind to take over a $12 BILLION a year department dealing with unimaginable destructive power.
This behavior is to be expected from a man who cannot deal with being called out by actress Meryl Streep, and it is scary as hell. Not only is the man dumb beyond all belief, his thin skin and impulsive character make the incoming administration a liability for all of humanity.
Because of the weird structure of the American government, this action effectively makes the agency (NNSA) unable to keep functioning normally: NNSA people are not allowed to be managed by anyone from outside of the agency. Probably something Trump was not completely aware of.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t find his own Jack Ripper anytime soon.
