Your DGB for today is to revisit our previous Grab and call your congress member and demand they support Ted Lieu’s Bill H.R. 669, that limits Donald Trump’s access to nuclear weapons.

The past couple days have been both insanely embarrassing and terrifying. It started with the leader of North Korea stating that he had a button to launch nuclear weapons on his desk and culminated in our very own president disgustingly and embarrassingly saying that his “nuclear button” was much bigger and more powerful. We all know know he has not used his button in a really long time, how does he even know? WHAT IS THIS LIFE???

Now it is more important than ever to limit his access to nuclear weapons. We can’t continue this pissing contest with North Korea at the risk of millions of lives because a senile old man likes to say everything he does is bigger and better. Now might also be the time to ask congress to start looking into 25th amendment because it’s not like his mental health is getting any better.

 

No Nukes

Your DGB for today is to call your members of Congress and urge them to support H.R. 669, a bill aimed at preventing Donald J. Trump from killing us all.

In the ‘60s and ‘70s, “no nukes” was a rallying cry against nuclear power plants. In 2017, it’s an entreaty to POTUS: “Pretty please, don’t push the button one night in the middle of a temper tantrum about football players or war widows, or a particularly bad golf game.” But, because appealing to reason rarely works with this dude, Congressman Ted Lieu (CA-D) and Senator Ed Markey (MA-D) have introduced a bill that would prevent Trump (or any president) from launching a nuclear-first strike without congressional approval. Since most of us don’t have a cold war-era bunker in our back yard, we think this is more than sensible legislation. Since we have a president who has demonstrated an inability to behave like a rational grown-up, we think the time is NOW. Seriously, folks - this is scary. Please call your representatives and senators to ask them to support H.R. 669. 

You can use Countable, Resistbot, or a good, old-fashioned phone call to let your reps know that we think a single unstable man in the Oval office shouldn’t have first-strike capability.
