That is hysterical in a sad way, but unsurprising and typical trump
He is distancing himself from anyone he's ever worked with, so he can point the finger of blame at whoever he wants in court. The only thing sad about Donald Duck, is that he has the nuclear football and is stupid enough to start a civil war that nobody will benefit from.
There are protocols and processes that have to happen before he can launch nukes at anyone- and given the current situation with the 2nd impeachment and everything else that has minimized his credibility- and he has only 6 days left in office (5 since he said he’s leaving before the inauguration) —- I seriously doubt he’ll be (or be approved), to launch nukes. The only exception would be if the country was responding to an imminent nuclear attack.
The asshole has the military helping him! All the guys down in the missile silos are regularly tested to make damned sure they will push the button. The only time I will feel safe about Donald Duck is when he is at least six feet underground. The fact he even became president is enough to make you wonder how humanity has managed to survive this long.
I just read that. Will there be a tit for tat from Rudy, i.e. spill the beans?
The only thing is that Israel did an air strike, yesterday, on an Iranian missile site in Syria. It killed forty people. Trump could argue that Iran will retaliate against Israel, so he has to stop that.
Still needs congressional approval
Israel won’t need us to get involved and can handle Iran by themselves.

Capitol riot: Investigation launched over panic buttons being torn out before attack
Spokesman for progressive Democrat says new panic buttons have been installed as probe begins

Investigation launched over US Capitol panic buttons being torn out before attack
"Ms Pressley is among a number of Democratic congresswomen who are supposed to have enhanced security measures in place, having been on the receiving end of attacks from the outgoing US president and his supporters.
Mr Trump, speaking in 2019, told Ms Pressley and other progressive black Democratic women in Congress - otherwise known as “the Squad” - to “go back” to “places from which they came”"
A Republican Lawmaker for Whom the Spectacle Is the Point
"WASHINGTON — As lawmakers entered the Capitol on Wednesday for one of the most solemn enterprises in American government, the impeachment of a president, Rep. Lauren Boebert was causing a spectacle before even making it into the chamber. She pushed her way through newly installed metal detectors and ignored police officers who asked her to stop so they could check her with a hand-held wand.
This reprised a standoff from the evening before, when Boebert, a freshman Republican from Colorado, refused to show guards what was inside her handbag as she entered the building. In both cases, she was eventually granted access, but not before engineering a made-for-Twitter moment that delighted the far right."
Ted Cruz suffers Capitol-riot backlash, with a top aide resigning and a call to add him to the FBI no-fly list
"Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is facing a growing backlash from congressional colleagues who say he was partly responsible for the riot at the US Capitol last Wednesday, with reports suggesting he could face a formal censure.
There have been multiple calls for Cruz to resign since he spoke on the Senate floor last week to argue for an audit of November's presidential election - part of a wider effort to overturn Joe Biden's election victory in favor of President Donald Trump. Shortly after Cruz's speech, hundreds of Trump supporters breached police lines and stormed the Capitol building.
Cruz's communications director, Lauren Blair Bianchi, resigned in response to Cruz's efforts to overturn the election result, Punchbowl News reported on Tuesday. A source close to Bianchi told the publication that the senator was "moving in a direction that she was not comfortable with."
Several Democratic lawmakers, including Sens. Patty Murray, Chris Coons, Sherrod Brown, and Sheldon Whitehouse, have called for Cruz and Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley to resign, citing the senators' vocal opposition to the certification of the election result before the violence at the Capitol last week."
Perhaps Trump thinks they would have looked better if they had worn three-piece suits while smashing Capitol windows and beating police with the metal pipes of Trump flags.
The Right wing: Always obey a policeman's orders...
Also the Right wing: Rep. Lauren Boebert causing a spectacle, refused to show guards what was inside her handbag as she entered the building.
Tampering with the panic button boxes would be expected to set a flag on the security system, similar to someone covering the lens of a security camera or removing it.
If someone tampered with the panic buttons before the riot, it raises questions about how it went undetected by security or if it was detected by security officials who didn't respond to the issue.
If it was part of maintenance, it's curious why Pressley apparently wasn't informed about it.
It looks suspicious that the panic buttons that went missing were issued to Pressley as part of heightened security due to Trump and his supporters engaging in a campaign of insults against her.
