Ron Johnson Is Perfectly Fine With Trump Having Nuclear Codes

RoJo, Our Dumb (and Crazy) Senator

On the tail of Hillary Clinton and Vice-President Joe Biden saying that Donald Trump wasn't to be trusted with the nuclear launch codes, a reporter asked Our Dumb Senator if he felt safe with Trump having the codes. RoJo's short answer was chilling, "Certainly."

When the gentle reader reads his full answer, it doesn't make things any better:

When pressed on the question again of whether Johnson trusted Trump with the nation’s nuclear weapons, Johnson said, "Certainly. Take a look at his vice president pick, take a look at his Supreme Court justices, take a look at his family."

Yeah, picking a fascist and homophobe for a running mate is a sure confidence builder.

Or the fact that Trump has had three wives, a seemingly incestuous attitude towards his daughter and a son who is as much of a hothead as his old man - well, what else can say a stable personality?

And if the thought that RoJo was fine with an unstable person like Trump having the nuclear codes wasn't terrifying enough, just remember, RoJo is the chair of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

RoJo is less fit for office than even Trump and it's downright nightmarish that he is in control of homeland security.

Russ Feingold's trouncing of RoJo in November can't come soon enough.
