“After discussing Iran and North Korea with U.S. military leaders on Thursday, President Donald Trump posed for a photo with them before dinner and declared the moment `the calm before the storm.`
`You guys know what this represents?` Trump said after journalists gathered in the White House state dining room to photograph him and first lady Melania Trump with the uniformed military leaders and their spouses.
`Maybe it`s the calm before the storm,` he said.
`You`ll find out,` Trump told questioning reporters”
When the commander-in-chief and his military brass are assembled before the press, and he declares that the moment represents “the calm before the storm,” that chilling statement would elicit ominous headlines if the president were anybody other than Donald Trump.
But Trump has a history of making outlandish comments, and his statement (joke?) was ill-advised and reckless, but I don`t think we should worry about any impending military action.
Although our relations with Iran and especially North Korea are at a boiling point, in no small part due to Trump`s bombastic and inflammatory rhetoric.
A pundit would have just as much luck trying to discern the meaning of Trump`s noxious farts as they would trying to make sense out of the nonsense that spews from his mouth.
I would advise my fellow Americans to chill out, just remember that our reality show president is liable to say anything for dramatic effect.
