Secretary Hillary Clinton took about 30 minutes today to eviscerate Donald Trump, using his own words on foreign policy.
She mocked his tweets, she mocked his ridiculous foreign policy ideas, and most importantly, she pointed out that he is simply too unstable to hold the nuclear codes in his hands.
Even as she mocked him, she was deadly serious about the implications of a Trump presidency.
Of his pathological need to turn Mexico against the United States, Clinton said, "It’s no small thing when he calls Mexican immigrants rapists and murderers. We’re lucky to have two friendly neighbors on our land borders. Why would he want to make one of them an enemy?"
Of Trump's fascination with North Korea and his proclamation that Japan should have nuclear weapons, Clinton marveled, "I wonder if he even realizes he’s talking about nuclear war."
She had more to say about North Korea, too.
"And I have to say, I don’t understand Donald’s bizarre fascination with dictators and strongmen who have no love for America. He praised China for the Tiananmen Square massacre; he said it showed strength. He said, 'You’ve got to give Kim Jong Un credit' for taking over North Korea – something he did by murdering everyone he saw as a threat, including his own uncle, which Donald described gleefully, like he was recapping an action movie. And he said if he were grading Vladimir Putin as a leader, he’d give him an A."
"Now, I’ll leave it to the psychiatrists to explain his affection for tyrants," she added.

Oh, and even as she was mocking his need to tweet, this appeared, as if by magic:
Bad performance by Crooked Hillary Clinton! Reading poorly from the telepromter! She doesn't even look presidential!
