In Response to Putin’s Virtual Nuclear Threat to America, Trump Starts (And Loses) Twitter War With Alec Baldwin

Mary Papenfuss: “Former CIA Director John Brennan … was asked by Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC if he thought Trump was ‘too unstable’ to possess the nuclear codes that would allow him to launch an attack. Brennan responded that he was rattled by the president’s strange focus on [Alec] Baldwin the morning after Russian President Vladimir Putin boasted of his nation’s nuclear capabilities to strike anywhere in the world, including the U.S. A simulated video presented by Putin appeared to depict next-generation nuclear missiles striking Florida.”

Said Brennan: “When I hear what Vladimir Putin was saying about the nuclear capabilities he has [and] then the president of the United States is tweeting about Alec Baldwin this morning, I mean, where is your sense of priorities?” Brennan asked. “I think a lot of Americans are looking at what’s happening with a sense of: This is surreal.”

“Trump has yet to respond to Putin. Instead, he ranted against [Baldwin] in an error-riddled tweet early Friday morning (the tweet was later reposted with corrections).”
