Did Trump Just Let Slip the Existence of Top Secret U.S. Nuclear-powered Cruise Missiles?


As you know, there was a tragedy in Russia a few days ago involving nuclear technology, and the seven people killed were buried today. Not a great deal else is known — including in Russia. TIME Magazine:

Russian media have speculated that the weapon being tested was the SSC-X-9 Skyfall, known in Russia as the Burevestnik, a nuclear-powered cruise missile that President Vladimir Putin introduced to the world in a brief animated segment during his state-of-the-nation address last year.

The incident comes after a series of massive explosions earlier last week at a Siberian military depot killed one and injured 13, as well as forcing the evacuation of 16,500 people from their homes. Russia’s navy has suffered numerous high-profile accidents over the years. In July, 14 sailors died in a fire aboard a nuclear-powered submarine in the Barents Sea in an incident on which officials initially refused to comment. A top naval official later said the men gave their lives preventing a “planetary catastrophe.”

Now, Donald Trump is on vacation and playing on Twitter. Here’s what he said.

Is he doing his usual lying/bluffing routine — or is he revealing something he shouldn’t? That is the question.

If there is such a program, maybe Jared mentioned it to him, since Jared reads the intelligence briefs every day — and then God knows who he shares the information with. Jared is very interested in nuclear reactors, as you know, he was selling them to the Saudis in 2017. But we don’t need to worry, right? Because Trump has real nuclear experts around him? Like at the Department of Energy? Oh — wait —

I’ve known a few military people with top security clearances. They didn’t even tell their wives what they were working on. They sure as hell didn’t tell Twitter.

Not surprising… now everyone is watching Moscow Mitch and Tolyatti Trump, it’s hard to debrief with his handler… er, friend Vladamir. So just pretend to be an idiotic twitter twit, and he can give classified reports to Putin in broad daylight.

Cause everyone knows, Donald’s not a compromised Soviet asset… right?

And we had the nerve and gull to lock up Edward Snowden. When we have the fake president doing worse. A effing flag waving traitor.
