Or maybe we don't trust a guy like Clapper who lied under oath about spying
on the citizens he pledged to protect.    Maybe the US intelligence
community is one of those symptoms...

​Yeah yeah I know I've heard it all before, we've got to totally ​change
civilization from top to bottom; but guess what, that's not going to happen
in the next 3 1/2 years. But a nuclear war might.

James Clapper
​ has worked under all presidents from ​
John F. Kennedy through Barack Obama
​ and for almost 8 years was head of all the 17 intelligence ​agencies of
the USA, and he worries about Trump's access to the nuclear codes:

*“I really question his ability to be — his fitness to be — in this office.
In a fit of pique he decides to do something about Kim Jong Un, there’s
actually very little to stop him​.​ The whole system is built to ensure
rapid response if necessary. So there’s very little in the way of controls
over exercising a nuclear option, which is pretty damn scary.”*

​And if you're not as scared as James Clapper then you just don't
understand the situation.​
