Choosing to read a false story is kinda useless....I have known a person who has held the "football." If you don't like it...to bad...I may know a little more than most....
I agree, its misleading (fake news) cherry picked for bitter liberals to read. It doesn't portray the entire picture when it comes to authorizing the release of nuclear weapons and the strict procedures leading up to launch.

C'mon people, they dont give one person (POTUS) who's not even required to pass a mental health examination the power to start keying codes, turning keys and pressing buttons unabated, Lmao hehehehe

Give our nation more credit when handling nuclear weapons, Lol. Just more fear mongering from the left caused by a bitter loss

If we are in immediate danger, there will be no time to summon Congress and debate. The Presidents needs to be able to respond quickly to a dangerous situation.

Only in situations in defending our country from imminent attack, constitutionality, the President doesn't need checks and balances and can authorize launch.

Presidents cant simply ask for the nuclear football on any given Sunday "hey joe, give me that and get lost" lock himself in the bathroom and start launching nukes at will, as most people believe he/she has the power to do, Lol.

If members of congress are so concerned, as are many Americans, why don't they start impeachment proceedings? We need a level headed leader. We don't need a leader that is treating the office of president and commander in chief like a reality show.

When is the reign of wannabe king Trump going to end?

His hands should be tied, he authorized the mother of all bombs...............and why? Because he could?
