Joe Scarborough: Donald Trump Repeatedly Asked Why We Couldn’t Use Nukes
from huffpo …
Donald Trump repeatedly asked an unnamed foreign policy expert why the U.S. couldn’t use its nuclear weapons stockpile during a national security briefing earlier this year, MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough said Wednesday.
Scarborough told the anecdote amid an interview with former CIA director Michael Hayden, who said he could not see himself voting for the “inconsistent” and “dangerous” GOP nominee. Asked if he was aware of anyone among his peers who was advising Trump, Hayden said “no one.”
“I’ll have to be very careful here,” Scarborough said. “Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on international level went to advise Donald Trump, and three times he asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked, at one point, if we have them, why can’t we use them? That’s one of the reasons he just doesn’t have foreign policy experts around him. Three times, in an hour briefing, why can’t we use nuclear weapons.” Scarborough learned of the exchange “in the last few days,” according to an MSNBC executive.
Trump becomes a bigger disaster by the day … sad … pathetic !!

Trump: ‘I Don’t Regret Anything’ About Khan Family Attacks
Source: Talking Points Memo
Donald Trump on Tuesday said that he has no regrets about launching repeated attacks on the parents of a deceased Muslim American soldier who spoke at the Democratic convention.
“I don’t regret anything. I said nice things about the son, and I feel that very strongly,” he told Washington, D.C., television station WJLA. “But of course I was hit very hard from the stage, and you know it’s just one of those things, but no, I don’t regret anything.”
Despite criticism from Democrats, Republicans, and his own campaign surrogates, Trump has refused to apologize for lashing out at the Khan family.
