As we have come to know over the last 18 months, the rules of politics are no more.

Whatever norms we were all accustomed to have been thrown out the window. However there is one age old rule that it looks like Donald Trump wants to put to the test. No matter what, Americans will stand with their president during a time of war. We may dispute the necessity of the war for years after, but during, we will not question our commander and chief, and we will be hesitant to replace a president during war time.

While Donald Trump may be a “fucking moron” according to his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, he is also a very savvy marketer. You cannot dispute that he has figured out how to manipulate the average American voter.

His endless needling of Kim Jong Un appears to be Trump itching for a reason to start, what would be World War III. This isn’t a partisan viewpoint. High ranking GOP Senator, Bob Corker, sees exactly what Trump is doing.

Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, charged in an interview on Sunday that President Trump was treating his office like “a reality show,” with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”

In an extraordinary rebuke of a president of his own party, Mr. Corker said he was alarmed about a president who acts “like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something.”

“He concerns me,” Mr. Corker added. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.” – NY Times

Trump has been setting the stage for weeks now, that he believes only a military option can solve the North Korean issue.
