Axios reported over the weekend that President Trump has suggested multiple times to senior Homeland Security and national security officials that they explore using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes from hitting the United States, citing sources who have heard the president’s private remarks.
Trump denies the claims, but that didn’t stop Hillary Clinton from going gangster. She replied via tweet, “We shouldn’t nuke hurricanes. We should hang them. With toilet paper.”
“It’s a much more effective way of getting rid of someone–err something.”
This is a veiled threat referencing the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, which has been widely questioned.
According to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), dropping a nuclear bomb into a hurricane is not just an extremely dangerous idea, it probably wouldn’t even be effective, since the amount of energy produced by a hurricane far exceeds what a supposedly neutralizing nuclear bomb would produce.
