Well, Trump denied it, so now you know that he absolutely 100% said it. Plus, I guarantee he got this idea from watching Sharknado.

Will the “just kidding” disclaimer be on today’s new cycle?

Also from that report: In response to questions about the the idea, a senior administration official reportedly defended the president, arguing that his heart was in the right place.

His heart might be in the right place but his brain has definitely left the skull, traveling south.

I suppose if we dropped one on Copenhagen it would clear the way for a purchase of Greenland, also.

To the rest of the world, i apologize that this child was given the office of President of this nation by a few lost souls in the Electoral College. Rest assured, the majority of American’s have never approved of him, nor wish this charade of his Presidency to continue. I would ask for your help in rectifying the situation we’re in, but that would be illegal. Therefore, i will only ask for your patience as we face this crisis to our nation’s survival. We will survive the regime of Dotard Drumpf. We will be a leader in this world, once again, soon.

Trump has denied it. Soon he will embrace it again because, you know, he’s an idiot.

Could he be any more clueless? It defies our built-in biological limits to be this stupid. I think he may an alien.

They are studying methods for constructing a wall all around the perimeter of the planet, so ships won’t sail off the edge and into the abyss of space.

He’d emerge from the flames and rubble, like the cockroaches and rats, to tweet another day.

Probably some safer and less toxic methods could work also.

An imbecilic idea that would have actual fallout not just political fallout.

Right. He didn’t say it but if he had said it it would be a genius thing to say. It’s too much cognitive dissonance and narcissistic injury to have to deny he said a thing because he knows the thing is too stupid to cop to. He’ll double down on the obvious genius solution that he nevertheless insists he did not suggest.

Seriously we’re now officially past the point where people accept that he was elected. He’s decompensating too much for that now.

“They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?”

You can be sure that he wouldn’t suggest nuking them if they formed off the coast of Norway.
