My haircut is worse than yours!
I have this image of most of people behind the scenes at the Whitehouse, staring and listening in disbelief at Trump's latest unscheduled outburst to the press or on Twitter.
Even his closest, hand-picked allies must be somewhat tired of having to try and defuse his public rants or clear up after the fall-out from them. The latest potential fall-out could actually involve radio activity.
Yesterday, someone came on to explain that Trump was only telling North Korea that he intends to meet them with fire, fury and - frankly - power, the likes of which this world has never seen before, by saying that this was the only language that North Korea understands.
Presidential protocol would normally mean that you do not make threats like this unless you are prepared to carry them out, having exhausted all avenues of diplomacy and after a direct hit on mainland USA has been made. Let's hope that this will turn out to be yet another example of how unfit he is to be President of the USA.
True, Kim Jong Un has been very 'threatful' (even my American spell-checker knows there is no such word) and there are 28,000 US troops just the other side of the North/South Korean border right now, but apparently this happens every August. I think that Trump has become so very angry and personally affronted by the fat boy with the other bad haircut that he has forgotten all about China.
I am reminded of the final scene in 'Doctor Strangelove', where the Texan airman bull-rides the atomic bomb as it drops from the plane...
