Donald Trump is a scary, unstable man with access to nuclear weapons, and he’s once again posturing about North Korea:

The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years. Talking is not the answer!

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy responds:

Bar is high, but this is perhaps the most dangerous, irresponsible tweet of his entire Presidency. Millions of lives at stake – not a game.

— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) August 30, 2017


Like anything is ever a game when Donald Trump’s ego is on the line. The question is whether this is going to be another case of Trump driving policy through tweets, or whether his marginally more responsible underlings will walk this back in a hurry.
