Trump rubbishes report of him suggesting nuclear bombs against hurricanes

President Trump took to Twitter to dismiss an Axios report as fake news that said he suggested to advisers that the US should fend off hurricanes with nuclear bombs. Axios cited a 2017 National Security Council memo saying that Mr. Trump asked whether the administration should bomb hurricanes to stop them from hitting the U.S., although Axios added that the memo doesn’t specify the word ’nuclear.’

From what I read it is an unnamed source, that is related to axios, that was paraphrasing what Trump said. What the hell happened to actual journalism? Gossip rags at least pretend to site sources better. If Trump did say something this stupid, grow some balls and own the quote.

Is it really so far fetched? I read couple years ago a paper that asked this from NASA. The comparison was that of an Asteroid hurtling towards earth to cause destruction and cost lives. It isn't a literal suggestion it's a hypothetical about doing something big to save lives. To encourage ideas. Clearly it went over many peoples heads. This is why there are memes that say if Trump cured cancer they would still be upset.

This is why we need to fix our educational system and this is why I would support free college...

But has anyone tried this. Might be the re-birth of Mothra. Drop a Nuke on approaching tsunami and wake up Godzilla. Godzilla vs Mothra!!!
