    Kelly and Mattis discussed literally tackling Trump in the event he ‘lunges for the nuclear football’: report

    New York Magazine contributing editor Gabriel Sherman on Tuesday reported on a remarkable conversation he had with a senior Republican official, who described conversations Donald Trump’s chief of staff Gen. John Kelly and defense secretary James Mattis have had about “physically [restraining] the president” in the event he “[lunges] for the nuclear football.”

    Sherman was discussing the growing concern in the West Wing over Trump’s temperament, particularly as the president continues to escalate feuds with prominent Republicans like Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) while simultaneously setting the United States “on the path to World War III.”

    “A conversation I had with a very prominent Republican today, who literally was saying that they imagine Gen. Kelly and Secretary Mattis have had conversations that if Trump lunged for the nuclear football, what would they do?” Sherman told NBC’s Chris Hayes. “Would they tackle him? I mean literally, physically restrain him from putting the country at perilous risk.”

    “That is the kind of situation we’re in,” Sherman added.

    People are so stupid to believe this. They are so hate filled that they believe anything.

    6. These reports are so phony and silly.

    No one can "lunge" at the so-called nuclear football. The process doesn't work that way in the remotest. It would make as much sense to say someone would lunge at a book. People have been watching too many scifi films and then then base their reporting on that. There is no "button" folks. Implying there is shows the story is made up.

    10. Proof of what?

    That a made up story is made up? Why don't you prove it happened? (With an actual source instead of the "imagined" conversation in the story.) Do you eve know what the nuclear football is and what its purpose is? If you did you would know how silly the story is. Not that it would matter..

    11. Very misleading headline.

    "...they imagine Gen. Kelly and Secretary Mattis have had conversations that if Trump lunged for the nuclear football, what would they do?”

    So, Kelly and Mattis never said that at all, it was all just some unnamed 'Prominent Republican' never-Trumper blowing smoke up the ass of Chris Hayes.

    I'm headed over to DU. I have some anti-Trump bridges in England to sell them.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    I literally laughed out loud when I read this! It's like RawStory, PalmerReport, Louise Mensch, and Claude Taylor merged and had a party serving Korova Edibles.


    I support UNexit: Get the US out of the UN; Get the UN out of the US!

    BIG CHEETO Is Watching You!

    Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!
