Michael Flynn and Donald Trump Walk into a Cuban Missile Crisis, and One Says to the Other…

No, this is not a joke. This is real. Donald Trump’s national security adviser is going to be Michael Flynn.

“Michael Flynn is a crackpot,” claims Paul Waldman, a senior writer at The American Spectator. He also observes that Flynn is credulous about conspiracy theories.

So we’re basically in the realm of Dr. Strangelove here.

Waldman also writes this: “For a President Trump’s unique combination of ignorance, inexperience, and impulsiveness, it’s particularly vital to have a national security adviser who can encourage calm and thoughtfulness, and not be distracted by what’s irrelevant or downright false.”

That’s not what we’re getting. Let that sink in.

If an international incident of Cuban Missile Crisis proportions presents itself at any point during the course of the Trump administration, two crackpots, at minimum, are going to be in the Oval Office debating among themselves what to do next: Micheal Flynn and Donald Trump.
