    A senior Trump administration official told Axios that the president's suggestion to drop nuclear bombs into hurricanes to stop them from hitting the United States was well-intentioned. (but wildly retarded)

    "His goal — to keep a catastrophic hurricane from hitting the mainland — is not bad," the official, who had been briefed on the suggestion, told the outlet. "His objective is not bad."


    "What people near the president do is they say 'I love a president who asks questions like that, who’s willing to ask tough questions,'" the official said. "It takes strong people to respond to him in the right way when stuff like this comes up. For me, alarm bells weren't going off when I heard about it, but I did think somebody is going to use this to feed into 'the president is crazy' narrative."

    Axios reported Sunday that Trump had floated the unconventional strategy in meetings with Homeland Security and national security officials.

    "I got it. I got it. Why don't we nuke them?" Trump reportedly said at a White House briefing on hurricanes.

    "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?" a source recounted to the outlet, paraphrasing Trump's words.

    The Hill has reached out to the White House regarding the reported suggestion.

    The idea of using nuclear weapons to disrupt hurricanes has been floated before and is addressed in a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration fact sheet about tropical cyclones.

    "Apart from the fact that this might not even alter the storm, this approach neglects the problem that the released radioactive fallout would fairly quickly move with the tradewinds to affect land areas and cause devastating environmental problems," the sheet reads.

    "Needless to say, this is not a good idea," it adds. (but it might make more sense than believing windmills cause cancer, climate change is a Chinese hoax or the US beat the Brits in 1776 by manning the skies, shutting down airports and ramming their ramparts)

    And this is the guy many trump voters would actually vote for again....Just amazing.

    trump looking the wrong way.

      The story by Axios that President Trump wanted to blow up large hurricanes with nuclear weapons prior to reaching shore is ridiculous. I never said this. Just more FAKE NEWS!

    you are lying, though. you have no sources that say that. and obama has twice the IQ of the donald, and you, and would never spew something so blatantly idiotic. and the article did mention that the goofy ass idea has been floated about before and obviously rejected....so what is the purpose of your post? to prove how you will lie to try and defend trump?

    can you really trust the sanity of people who refer to themselves in the third person? or is it possible someone wrote that tweet for trump because trump was afraid he would misspell some simple word or because Trump said "so what?", and referred to him as President Trump accidentally?

    the source was clearly listed. i did not make it up. axiom reported it, and the Hill reported that. both are real sources. but you do not have any source for what you said. there is a difference. it is not the best sourced article ever. i agree. but it was a real source.

    had a source. so you lied. i listed it and another source which referred to it. what makes it possible, even if not sourced the best ever, was trump says goofy crap like this a lot- like windmills cause cancer, climate change is a chinese hoax, and the US defeated the Brits by manning the skies, shutting down airports and ramming their ramparts.

    thread success.
