James Clapper Admits He's Terrified Trump Has Access to the Nuclear Codes
CNN anchor Don Lemon was disgusted by Tuesday night's rally in Phoenix, Arizona. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper took it one step further, admitting that he's terrified that Trump has access to the nuclear codes.
Clapper is a nonpartisan voice who has served in both the Obama and the George W. Bush administrations.
"I really question his ability to be—his fitness to be—in this office, and I also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for it," Clapper told Lemon.
He called the rally "downright scary and disturbing," condemning the president for his "behavior and divisiveness and complete intellectual, moral and ethical void."
Clapper wondered aloud about Trump's chances of remaining in office, asking, "How much longer does the country have to, to borrow a phrase, endure this nightmare?"
