No, that is not a joke.

President Trump has floated dropping nuclear bombs into hurricanes to stop them from hitting the United States in meetings with Homeland Security and national security officials, Axios reported Sunday.

According to sources who have heard the president’s private remarks and have been briefed on a National Security Council (NSC) memorandum, the suggestions were made during briefings on hurricanes.

“I got it. I got it. Why don’t we nuke them?” Trump said at one such White House briefing, a source who was there told Axios.

“They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?” the source added, paraphrasing the president’s remarks.

The source told Axios that the briefer responded with something to the effect of “Sir, we’ll look into that.”

Apparently, this is not the only time that Trump suggested bombing hurricanes, he did the same thing back in 2017.

The idea had been floated before, so there is a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration which addresses the proposal.

It says the following: 

“Apart from the fact that this might not even alter the storm, this approach neglects the problem that the released radioactive fallout would fairly quickly move with the tradewinds to affect land areas and cause devastating environmental problems,” the sheet reads.

“Needless to say, this is not a good idea.”

There you have it, an explanation that any reasonably intelligent middle school student could probably have come up with on his own. 

And yet it will have to be explained in detail to the guy in charge of our country.

    Husband HOOTED over this.
    “He got that straight out of Sharknado!”

      We have a president who thinks Sharknado is a documentary

      Where would you even get such a dangerous idea? Well, it turns out the idea has also been proposed in a scientific journal of repute; the movie Sharknado.

      “We cannot believe we’re saying this,” international climate change pressure group 350 tweeted, “but elected officials should get their climate policy recommendations from frontline communities and science, not the movie Sharknado.”

      The idea, as everyone has been pointing out, is fairly central to the plot of Sharknado. Sharknado 3

    He is so itching to press that button. He’ll nuke anything just so that he can prove that he can. He wants his presidency to have dropping the bomb as one of it’s legacies. He just hasn’t decided on a final target yet.

    I heard the best way would be to lower trump into the center of the eye and all his hot air from his butt hole mouth would be enough to disrupt it.
