Temperament

The President of the United States of America is the one person in the country with the nuclear launch codes.  As Commander-in-Chief, the president is uniquely able to commence mass destruction, violence, and death.  We all know the dangers of nuclear weapons.  We all know the repercussions of a nuclear strike.  With great power comes great responsibility – we cannot entrust the unique power to kill millions into the hands of a loon or someone whose temperament imperils American and global safety.

We cannot allow Donald Trump to be in control of our nuclear stockpile (and nuclear triad, which he can’t even name, let alone understand).

A quick stroll through Trump’s Twitter feed reveals a man so riddled with insecurity that the slightest perceived wrong warrants excessive, baseless, and unnecessarily personal attacks.  No one is spared when they say something “mean” about Trump – he despises the freedom of expression and the ability of others to exercise free speech (because they might say something not nice to him).

Here are just a few of his responses to those that seek answers about policy:

Ben Sasse asked Trump to clarify liberal statements he made in the past.  The result:screenshot-twitter.com 2016-01-29 20-29-45screenshot-twitter.com 2016-01-29 20-31-11

Trump’s favorite target is journalists, whose role in informing the electorate is absolutely imperative to a functioning democracy.  Trump, however, likes to bully and intimidate journalists, preventing them from playing the vital role of the Fourth Estate.

Not to mention his mocking a reporter’s disability:

And, of course, the many others who dared challenge The Donald on policy.  From lowly political observer to master operative, no one escapes Trump’s fury when he’s been attacked.  His deep insecurity leads to an obsessive fixation on any perceived insults and spawns reactions that fit the profile of a high schooler, not a serious presidential candidate.

But wait, there’s more!  See his full list of insults here!

Oh, and then there’s this:

Oh, and likening dating women with STDs to fighting in Vietnam:

“I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world. It is a dangerous world out there — it’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave solider,” Trump said.

(This man wants to be Commander-in-Chief?  He clearly demonstrates no understanding of war…but how could he, he skipped the draft).

Is this really a man whose finger should rest on the nuclear launch button?

I think not.  His tendency to viciously attack everyone regardless of their position, role, or circumstance exposes a man dangerously unstable and unable to control rage that stems from deep-rooted insecurity.  He can’t take criticism.

Well, Donald, I hate to tell you this, but foreign diplomacy isn’t easy.  It requires work and knowledge.  It requires patience.  You can’t take to Twitter to attack global leaders.  They don’t take kindly to schoolyard bullying.

Let’s not make matters worse.

Let’s not replace the “Send Tweet” button with the “Launch Nukes” button.
