Did you catch this in Rachel's interview with Hillary last night? It really struck me.

Many of you noted Hillary saying T is a clear and present danger, but this really struck me:

"I’m hoping that on the really big issues, there’s enough authority to be able to restrain and contain the president."

I though of a couple recent threads where we were talking about hoping Mattis (or someone) can keep the nuclear football away from him, and asking what does it say about what we've come to when we are entertaining the idea of the general taking control of the president as being a potentially good thing.

The quote is from this segment of Rachel's interview:
"I’m hoping that the people who have a mature view of the exercise of power when it comes to something like NK …life or death …when it comes to something that would be incredibly stupid given NK …pulling out of the Iran deal so we have a second nuclear crisis to contend with …I’m hoping that on the really big issues, there’s enough authority to be able to restrain and contain the president.

This president and some of the people around him pose a clear and present danger to our country.

The people around him have to be our first line of defense against him doing something that could have serious repercussions."

1. What she talked about in no uncertain terms

is what people are thinking about. She expressed it and quite tactfully. Actually she came through with both tack and diplomacy. Because when you go there in thought with all that you know,you end up with hope ,that's it.

2. I caught that, too - have had that thought myself.

And I'm grateful that she spoke out about it. She's absolutely right and it's scary as hell!

3. I did absolutely catch that. I posted about it in another thread.

Nobody had even mentioned it and it really stuck out to me as an exclamation point sort of sentence, you know?

4. Yes, i know what you mean. Seems we are close to ...bordering on hoping for a military coup, almost?

When even Hillary is saying we have to rely on those around him to restrain him....I was really surprised no one else seemed to pick up on it.
What was the other thread you posted about it? Can you post the link in a reply?
