The problem is that when nuts like Hitler and Trump go down they take everyone with them. Trump is sliding into Alzheimers, and these folks often have bouts of hallucinations where they think that they are under attack and thus lash out violently. This is not good for the world when such a guy has his fat finger on the world’s biggest nuclear trigger. In fact the Russians might just panic about him and try and beat him to the punch.
