Blast Away

Last hurricane season Donald Trump forwarded the idea of nuking a hurricane to weaken its cyclonic power.

AXIOS reported in August 2019 that “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?,” Trump reportedly asked aides during one hurricane briefing. The response to the idea was, uh, muted, according to Axios. “You could hear a gnat fart in that meeting,” one source in the room told Axios. “People were astonished.”

Trump denied the statement, although earlier in the same year he had refused to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT banning short-range nuclear missiles.

On May 15 Trump delayed signing the START treaty and mused with White House officials about staging the first nuclear test since 1992.

Few politicians of either party commented on the scheme.

Proposed date – August 8 to commemorate the destruction of Hiroshima.

Target – Someplace local.

Probably New York.

# 45 truly is a madman.
