Big security risks in Trump

Ya think. Trump is a loose cannon with a hair trigger temper, a person who has zero regard for international protocol. His small ever-tweeting hands will soon hold the keys to the US's nuke arsenal.

The Don's rightwing, true believing US followers and the Russians who see him as giving them access to the US Treasury are some of the few who don't see him as a security risk.

The cretin should store his phone in an unflushed toilet for the next four years. And tape his mouth shut. Then with luck the damage of his 'precedency' will be limited.

These agencies will all soon be under his control, that will end any "feud". A non-story to troll for anti-Trump quotes from Democratic losers between jobs.

How exactly do you think that works? Do you imagine Trump will charge in on day 1 shouting, "I'm in charge you have to like me now!" and they'll all change their mind? Or do you think he can just replace all the national intelligence experts who don't agree with him with business pals he owes a favor to?

Anyone who has taken the trouble to read the just published report by The Intercept exposing the unpunished heinous activities (war crimes including the murder of Osama bin Laden, atrocities, mutilations and the total absence of accountability and justice for their victims because of systematic cover-ups) of the SEAL Team 6 since 9/11 might be forgiven for giving a rueful nod of assent to the "nazi" epithet Trump has employed in relation to the CIA and the US security apparatus. Trump himself , like millions of his countrymen, may be reluctant to admit to the shameful historical record of the wars, numerous coups and meddling in other countries for which the US government has been responsible, but even the proverbial stopped clock is right twice a day.

I think the establishment days of enjoying thei life and way of the status quo is coming to a slow and embarrassing end to the establishment. Every other president followed that cardinal rule and Trump broke that rule and good on him for that.

His small ever-tweeting hands will soon hold the keys to the US's nuke arsenal.

Thank God!

Security risk? If we can survive 8 years of Obama, we can handle anything as a nation.
