I cringed when I read Trump's tweet: "I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one." It shows he has the mind of a 5-year-old who goes "nyah-nyah" on the playground.

It is frightening to know that he has access to nuclear weapons that can destroy civilization in an instant. I can only hope that foreign leaders laugh at Trump and ignore his infantile tweets.

What we are seeing is a 71-year-old man who is turning back into a small boy. People with dementia do seem to gain some childish behaviors as their disease progresses. It’s because they are losing things that they've learned as adults.

I hope our generals know there is a baby with access to the nuclear button.
