Threatening nuclear war no longer the worst thing Trump has done this week

DONALD  Trump has impressed the international community by managing to make threatening a pre-emptive nuclear strike seem comparatively reasonable.

By declining to criticise a group of Nazis for murdering a woman in cold blood for disagreeing with them, Trump knocked imminent Armageddon off the top spot and into a second place where it competes with his suggestion he might invade Venezuela.

Political analyst Julian cook said: “For most people, the realistic threat of nuclear immolation for a large part of humanity would be a bit of a showstopper. But you know Donald, he always got to go one better.

“And from his tweets, you know he never sleeps and is always thinking of more stuff to do.”

A White House spokesman said: “It’s only Monday.”
