My nuclear button is bigger than yours!

“All we are saying is give peace a chance!” John Lennon

I believe that if Donald Trump was in a psychiatric hospital he would have long ago been give a shot of Thorazine, either that or have been beaten up by the other patients. 

It is one thing to be crude and insensitive. It is another thing to be belligerent and vulgar in talk when in private. But when one serves as President of the United States they represent all the people that live in this country. As such I feel it is my patriotic duty to call out President Trump and ask him to please show a little class.

I understand that people in this world live in different realities. I met a man on line at the bank this morning. He was worried about people coming to this country to kill him. I tried to reassure him that nobody wanted to come to this country and kill him. He was suffering from a mild case of paranoia but I didn’t bring that to the surface. I can imagine why somebody like this stranger might feel afraid, after all I watch too watch the propaganda on the television that is called news. This man I met also mentioned how North Korea wants to nuke us or at least something to that effect.

Let us get some facts straight. Since the Korean War, North Korea has had no hostilities, certainly nothing to be compared to the United State’s record. Wikipedia lists sixteen aggressive engagements by the United States. So if you want to know who the aggressor is let history speak the truth.

Meeting this man in the bank put a real face on the ambiguous Trump supporter. So for the sake of argument allow me at this time to avoid a political disagreement and accept every single precept that Trump supports. I still say that the president needs to learn some gentle, diplomatic words. Certainly Trump needs to get away from his juvenile, provocative antics.

I honestly wonder when I see Trump speaking on television or when I read about his late night tweets if the man isn’t coked up. He is vulgar and crude and as far from presidential as one can get. In all honesty I don’t fault the man for his words as I don’t expect people to be perfect. In all honesty there are times when I get so frustrated that curse words will leave my mouth. But I am not on the world’s stage and I only represent myself. Furthermore I have to good sense as to when an angry curse will go unheard and when it will cause my image damage. Trump seems to possess ‘diarrhea of the mouth’ and an out of control case at that.

A war with North Korea could turn nuclear and result in the deaths of tens of millions of people and it might trigger World War 3 which could literally kill billions if not terminating all life on planet  Earth. But at the very least these verbal jabs of hostility are upsetting the mental well being of people in the United States. I witnessed it personally how this individual was agitated and on edge.

If you had a child who was acting like Donald Trump was, and if you were a good parent you would whack his backside with a switch and give him a lesson that he would never forget. For all he is portrayed as by the United States news Kim Jun Il doesn’t seem to be very mentally balanced either. All the more reason Donald Trump she take a key, lock his mouth and throw the key away. Shut up Donald or at least speak decently, you are freaking out the people of America if nothing else.

If I wrote a science fiction book thirty years ago with Donald Trump as president I believe it would have gotten rejection on the grounds it was unbelievable. Please check out my books, in particular my new science fiction book ‘From Chaos To Cosmos’ which is on pre-order for less than one dollar.
