Donald Trump is unfit to have access to the launch codes for America’s nuclear arsenal, or so say the Clintonites. Why, he might do something crazy, like:
Joe Biden is Barack Obama’s mildly retarded uncle who lives in the basement. You bring him up for Thanksgiving and to go to the dentist, but the rest of the time, he’s a cellar dweller. Because you just don’t know what he’s going to do or say next.
Like at a rally in Scranton, Pennsylvania, (his home town) on Monday for Hillary Clinton.
In a folksy speech full of childhood memories that he somehow thinks are interesting, Biden veered off into discussing how completely untrustworthy Donald Trump is with the ‘nuclear codes.
Background: A military officer is assigned the specific duty of carrying the “suitcase” containing the nuclear launch codes. That officer carries that suitcase everywhere the President goes, and obviously a second officer does the same with the Vice President. When in public, they normally wear civilian clothing and always do their best to maintain a low profile.
In doing so … he identified the man holding the nuclear codes to the entire crowd.
There’s a guy that follows me — right back here — has the nuclear codes [as he’s pointing to the man], so God forbid anything happened to the president and I had to make a decision, the codes are with me…he [Trump] is not qualified to know the codes! He can’t be trusted!
It should be noted that during Lt. Col. Buzz Patterson’s tenure in the Clinton White House, carrying the nuclear “football,” he discovered that Bill Clinton lost his card–apparently a credit-card sized card–containing the codes he needed to enable nuclear launches. He had no idea when or where he lost it, and it had apparently been without if for weeks–and didn’t tell anyone! The card was never found.
Joe Biden is an idiot, Barack Obama is an incompetent traitor, and Hillary Clinton is a criminal incompetent, but Donald Trump isn’t fit for the job? Unlike the rest, he, despite many bizarre character traits that absolutely make me despair, has never killed anyone through incompetence, has never done things that would be considered treason in a nation that observes the rule of law, and has never suggested that people do things with shotguns that would cause fatalities and put the shooter in jail. I don’t believe there are any photos of Trump groping unwilling women and girls either. Of course, having said that, someone will probably turn up photos of Trump groping an entire troop of Girl Scouts.
It’s getting to the point where I’m nearly speechless about the Presidential Race, even as I look forward to seeing Back Obama and Joe Biden ooze out of the White House.
