Democrats who lacked any understanding of Presidential Military preceding toyed around with the idea of trying to take away the authority to authorize a nuclear strike away from President Trump.
A silly Senator from Connecticut who apparently thinks Trump carries around a big red button at any time can be used to launch a nuclear strike ranted about his 'concerns' saying, "We are concerned that the President of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic that he might order a nuclear weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national security interests." Another Senator, Republican Bob Corker, who has clashed with the President in the past said he wants to examine the "realities of the system". Maybe he should have "examined the realities of the system" before he opened his mouth because as retired Air Force General Robert Kehler explains, the Military just "doesn't blindly follow orders."
"Nothing happens automatically," General Kehler said as he had to calm the senators like babies at nursery throwing a fit and explain to them the process involves careful considering by law experts, both civilian and military, and how the whole process is very layered with many redundancies with no single red button. General Kehler continued to describe the process, "assessment, review, and consultation between the President and key civilian and military leaders, followed by transmission and implementation of any Presidential decision by the forces themselves."
