Donald Trump reminds me of no one so much as the Emperor Nero, whose first priority was his own gut, and who fiddled while Rome burned.
After Trump tweeted, “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes,” he replied to fears that this would cause another arms race by saying, “Let it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all.”
Which caused the internet to light up with messages such as, “We are all going to die” and “He will kill us all.”
If Trump is not stopped, the world will “come to its senses regarding nukes” when it sees a mushroom cloud blooming on the TV screen just before the TV is incinerated.
What an “oops!” moment that will be.
