Ex-CIA director worries about Trump holding nuke codes after petty Alec Baldwin spat

Published

on

Former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan publicly worried about President Donald Trump having the ability to launch nuclear weapons, during a Friday interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.

“It is no secret to anybody that Donald Trump was ill prepared and unexperienced (sic) in terms of dealing with matters that a head of state needs to deal with, head of government and I think this is now coming to roost,” Brennan noted. “And I am really worried, particularly the reports the last couple days, he must be feeling this pressure.”

“There is a part of me that has been very angry at Donald Trump for the things he said and things he did. I am now moving into the realm of deep worry and concern that our country needs strong leadership now,” he continued. “If we have somebody in the Oval Office who is unstable, inept, inexperienced, and also unethical, we really have rough waters ahead. And I do think it is going to get more painful, a bit worse before it gets better. ”

“Your former colleague, James Clapper thought he was too unstable, to pickup on a word you used, to possess the nuclear codes,” Wallace reminded. “Do you agree with that?”

“When I hear what Vladimir Putin was saying about the nuclear capabilities he has, the President of the United States is tweeting about Alec Baldwin this morning, I mean, where is your sense of priorities?” Brennan asked. “And so I think a lot of Americans are looking at what’s happening with a sense of — this is surreal.”

“I’m hoping that those in Congress as well as the 30 percent of Americans out there who still believe in what Mr. Trump is saying, will look past that and say, ‘are we really doing what we need to do as a country to protect ourselves and ensure our children and grandchildren are going to be remain safe, secure and prosperous in the future?’ And I have my serious, serious doubts,” he revealed. “And the longer this goes on, the worse it’s going to get.”

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.
