Obama reacts...


TYT react.


In response to questions, Trumps staff claim they haven't taken it away but apparently the vocabulary used in the messages has changed noticeably since Nov 1st.

This seems like a smart move on his part, not sure why this surprises you.
I am sure the other side has told Hillary to stop taking pay days for her foundation until she can pardon herself. duh.

That would be a nice view, if this was Donnie's decision.

Well ultimately it is his decision. He could have refused.


Sure, and they could have put him in a time out if he did.

In memorium. Bob Hoover died 25 Oct 2016 at 94. In WWII he was shot down in a Spitfire and stole an FW-190 to escape. He spent decades at air shows flying Ole Yeller, shown

The problem is, no one can take away the launch codes from the President. Who's going to be the grownup in the room then?

What if Putin thinks he has an understanding what with Trump saying he wouldn't honor NATO agreements and thinks all the US military leaders are idiots. If on inauguration day, Russia forces cross into Ukraine or the Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania to reconnect the Kaliningrad exclave back to Russia), what happens?

Does Trump launch on Russia? Does he support NATO? Does he let it happen and try to cut a deal?

While I find the idea of Trump's campaign staff taking away his toys hilarious and entirely in keeping with what we know of Trump, I can't actually find any solid info other than that Trump himself has stopped tweeting. Any good source for WHY his tweets have stopped, or is it all speculation?

Do you think there's this big red button on the Resolute desk that launches ICBMs?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_football

No, I know, because my extended family worked in aerospace and were in every branch of the service, that nukes can be launched from the White House Situation Room or in the field using the "nuclear football," a briefcase. I know an entirely unreasonable amount about it considering I have never worked on a nuclear program myself.

The problem with the system is, you have to make sure the soldiers charged with launching the missiles will salute and say, "Yes, Mr. President," when the order is given. He and he alone is the Commander in Chief.

If you think Trump has been wound up by Clinton, wait until no leader in the world takes him seriously. He's got a conviction that he's the best con man out there. He's an amateur compared to Putin.

Not that you'll pay any attention, but HRC did what every Sec'y of State has done since the founding of the country: handled the job as the Sec'y and the President agreed. She didn't send any classified material, and what she received was only classified after the fact: in other words, if you put together all the mail on the secure server you can piece together something which might be a problem.

Kissinger went to far as to send his papers to the Library of Congress, where they are unavailable for FOIA requests; the legality of that was confirmed by the USSC.

Comey's a Republican (or at least was until he went independent earlier this year). If he says there's no there there, I tend to trust him.

What's more likely? That Trump gave up his keys to the twitter nuclear football under pressure from his donors and staff because he literally couldn't control himself or that he stopped tweeting crazy stuff when he's upset and also changed his vocabulary and subject matter for the few tweets he did make now only during normal working hours?
