This weekend Axios reported that President Trump has many times suggested that we should strongly look into using nuclear weapons to stop hurricanes.
Naturally Trump denied the remarks, but that hasn’t stopped people from having fun about it on Twitter.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 26, 2019
Movie Producer/Director Jeremy Newberger posted this huge thread satirizing famous Trump supporters reactions to Trump’s comments.
MIKE PENCE: If the President says nuking a hurricane will stop it in its tracks, then ya know what? I’m sure as heck I’m gonna believe him.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
[Man shouts ‘Amen.’]
[Woman throws hands in the air.]
LINDSEY GRAHAM: I will be leading a discovery hearing to find out who leaked the President’s operational nuclear plans as storm response, which is a serious violation of USSTRATCOM protocol. Heads are gonna roll. I promise you that.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
SEAN HANNITY: Tonight we have one of America’s top hurricane experts, Geraldo Rivera, former CEO of Space Dot Com, Lou Dobbs, and Hungarian Nuclear Expert, Seb Gorka. How right is this President’s strategy? We will discuss.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
NEWT GINGRICH: I love how the Democrats are all weather experts now, every one of them, so smart about how to stop global warming and hurricanes. Meanwhile the President is miles ahead in his creative approaches.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
JEANINE PIRRO: I wouldn’t stop with the hurricanes my friends. If I was President Trump I would nuke the shithole countries that blow the warm air over here from Africa in the first place. Nuke them back to hell. It’s an eye for an eye-wall!— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
DON JR.: Look at the liberals having a field day over my dad’s idea to disrupt the hurricane eye. It was all fine liberals when it was the plot of Twister. If Al Gore told them to do it, it would be ok, but no. #TDS #MAGA— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
IVANKA: i am pleased to announce Girls Observing Nuclear and Defensive Systems, my father’s new STEM program for young women interested in hurricane nuclear defense. We will be launching GONADS in universities across America.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
TOMI LAHREN: I’m pleased to announce my new line of spandex running pants with a crotch pouch for the nuclear football. You never know when inclement weather might be heading your way to slow you down.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
MIKE HUCKABEE: I hope the President tries out his plan to nuke the hurricanes. I just hope he waits till we get back to the letter H named storms. Like Hurricane Hillary would be a good one to start with!— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
TUCKER CARLSON: Don’t fall into the left’s trap. They want you talking about hurricanes, especially going into elections, but frankly you know as well as I do, they don’t exist. Anyone can sketch a little imaginary eye in the ocean. Don’t fall for it. It’s a hoax.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
MELANIA TRUMP: My husband is tired from nature’s boolies. He wants to protect all the boys and girls from big storms making blowing jobs for them. He loves all cheeldren. He will fire big bombs at hurricane and be big hero. Nuke Best!— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
REP. STEVE KING: If Hurricanes were brought over here from Africa, i’m surprised the liberals aren’t arguing for us to pay them reparations too.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
ERIC TRUMP: My father has great instincts on how to stop hurricanes. This one time at Mar-A-Lago we were having an outdoor charity banquet and he knew instinctively when to move it inside into the clubhouse. He felt rain was coming. It would have totally ruined the event.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
AG BARR: We’re looking into the President’s idea of using nuclear warheads to disrupt hurricane eyes. I think all options are on the table. Our teams are reviewing all ideas and will take the President’s into consideration. It’s why he’s the boss. All options are on the table.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
JOHN BOLTON: We have solid intel that all of these hurricanes begin in Tehran, Iran. This intel is believable and I think actionable.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
DAN BONGINO: Watch what happens when I drop this lemon into this blender. See how the blade makes easy business of it? Bye bye lemon. Now watch what happens when I drop five lemons in. The blade ain’t moving now. President Trump knows things. More than the left will ever know.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
KELLYANNE CONWAY: I don’t even know why we are wasting time discussing hurricanes. It’s not even hurricane season and the President just signed a major trade deal with Japan. Do you think Japan cares about nukes? No they want to trade with America and our great farmers for corn.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
STEPHEN MILLER: We should be tying illegals to each nuke we fire into the hurricanes. There is no better deterrent to other illegals than the possibility their family members will be attached to a nuclear warhead and launched into a storm’s eye..— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 26, 2019
I feel like I just watched Fox News for an entire cycle— The Wicked (@elach242) August 26, 2019
That was pretty epic.
It’s August 2019, and the US ‘president’ had to deny he said you could nuke hurricanes.— Stu Cameron (@stucam7771) August 26, 2019
Because after windmill ‘cancer’ raking Californian forests, wanting to buy Greenland, climate change hoax and staring at a solar eclipse, it wasn’t the most stupid idea he’s ever had…
There were a few Jabs at Hillary for whatever reason, but they were still pretty funny.
Nuke Emails, Not Hurricanes — Hillary 2020 https://t.co/gLBoXDN858— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) August 26, 2019
We are buying Greenland and we are using it to nuke hurricanes and you can’t stop us https://t.co/MpPPHyOpVv— Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) August 26, 2019
You’re right. Instead, we should wait until the guards are asleep and sneak into the hurricanes cell and make it look like a suicide. https://t.co/bDUQygb1fb— matt’s idea shop (@MattsIdeaShop) August 26, 2019
Trump: Nuclear war against a hurricane is good, and easy to win.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) August 26, 2019
here i am— elizabeth bruenig (@ebruenig) August 26, 2019
nuke you like a hurricane
That was my first reaction too! Scorps FTW.
…so what if we nuked Greenland and bought hurricanes?— Aelfred The Great (@aelfred_D) August 26, 2019
Cotton: “Why Greenland’s Atlantic location makes it the ideal launching pad for anti-hurricane nuclear attacks.”— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) August 26, 2019
Yes but have we tried sending a radioactive spider have to bite the hurricane— A.R. Moxon (Julius Goat) (@JuliusGoat) August 26, 2019
“DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD NUKE HURRICANES?” pic.twitter.com/0jf3c5Y7UL— G Michael (@UsVsThemRedux) August 26, 2019
It never fails. Last week was totally absurd with Trump trying to buy Greenland and calling himself the King of Israel and the chosen one, and yet here we are, on Monday and we’re already talking about nuking Hurricanes!
It’s incredibly terrifying to have a President of the United States and leader of the free world, so totally batshit crazy that Charles freaking Manson seems sane in comparison, but at least it’s somewhat entertaining.
Can we change the wording of the 25th amendment to say “when the president suggests nuking a hurricane”?— Devin Nunes’ Alt-Mom (@NunesAlt) August 26, 2019
