It’s not exactly something you want to hear from the President of the United States, but Joe Biden has dropped a literal bomb.
Biden took to the stage at a fundraiser in New York late last week, issuing an ominous warning about the risks of war between Ukraine and Russia spilling over to a global nuclear conflict.
So what does Nancy Pelosi do? She does what any intelligent businesswoman would, loads up on nuclear stock.
Biden told donors, “First time since the Cuban Missile Crisis, we have a direct threat of the use [of a] nuclear weapon if in fact, things continue down the path they are going. I’m trying to figure out what is [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s off ramp?” Biden continued, “Where does he find a way out? Where does he find himself in a position that he does [not] only lose face but lose significant power within Russia?”
Later he added, “We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis.” He explained Putin “Is not joking when he talks about the potential use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons because his military is, you might say, significantly underperforming.”
The President finished the thought, “I don’t think there’s any such thing as the ability to easily [use] a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon.”
Biden’s warning was echoed over the weekend as Donald Trump took to rally stages in Nevada and Arizona and warned that World War III could be on the horizon.
