I remember watching the movie The Manchurian Candidate when I was a little kid. It was a fantasy so much so that it was like watching a James Bond movie. Although in those days the Soviet Union loomed large over our thinking having a president that in fact was a sleeper agent for the USSR was out there. Now we have Donald Trump, and his weird love 4 President Putin of the Russian Federation. Sit here and read Mike Morrell say that he thinks that Donald Trump has been turned by Putin is scary. À few months ago Donald Trump was being briefed by one of his advisers on foreign policy. And during that one hour breathing he went back to how and why have we not used nuclear weapons in the past. The reason we don’t use nuclear weapons is because they are a weapon of no resort. Once used there’s no way of going back. That’s something that every American understands and the fact that this gentleman who wants to be our president does not scares the hell out of me and it should you.
Mike Morrell from the CIA is not a political creature. And his courageous coming out against Donald Trump today should be read as a non-partisan view of a Donald Trump presidency.
