Fresh from a weekend at his Bedminister golf course, president Trump took to Twitter at 11:24 on Sunday night to fire off this all-caps threat to Iranian president Hassan Rouhani.
“NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED,” was the just before midnight lunacy from the tweeter-in-chief.
Trump needs a Twitter intervention.
The US survived the “fire and fury” Twitter threat that Trump hurled at North Korean madman Kim Jong Un. The former Little Rocket Man though may have snookered the president. CNN reports that Kim now demands a formal peace treaty with the US before even thinking about getting rid of a nuke. Trump reportedly stews at his new buddy's audacity.
Iran though presents a far greater threat to the US than impoverished North Korea ever did. A US military move on Iran would set the entire Middle East ablaze. That conflagration would make George W. Bush’s attack on Iraq look like a walk in the park.
Trump may view his macho threats against Iran as nothing more than tossing some juicy red meat for his political base, but perhaps Rouhani and the mullahs in charge aren’t in on the joke.
There’s one man who could restore a measure of sanity to the White House.
It’s time for Prestige Brands CEO Ron Lombardi to come to the aid of his country. He’s in the position to keep Trump’s fingers from firing off late night threats against Iran, Bob Mueller, FBI, CIA, Jeff Bezos, CNN, New York Times, Crooked Hillary, and the usual cast of characters.
Tarrytown, NY-based Prestige Brands is the marketer of sleep aid Sominex. Lombardi needs to send a couple of cartons of Sominex to the White House ASAP.
Avid TV watcher Trump surely remembers the Sominex TV commercial of the 1950s and 1960s that pitched the sleep aid for nervousness, overwork or fatigue. [Trump may not be nervous about the future of the US under his watch, but I sure am].
First Lady Melania Trump could do her part by making sure The Donald takes his pill and then sing the catchy Sominex jingle—Take Sominex Tonight and Sleep—Safe and Restful—Sleep, Sleep, Sleep” to hubby. Prestige Brands promises that after taking Sominex, a person will wake up “rested and relaxed” and, in the president’s case, ready to turn on Fox News and start the madness all over again.
If Trump balks at Sominex, Lombardi could ship other Prestige Brands sleep aids, Nytol and Compoz, to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Duty calls, Mr. Lombardi. Your country and the rest of the world needs you.
