When it comes to aspects of President Donald Trump’s day-to-day life, “size matters,” according to a report by CNN’s Chris Cillizza.
An article titled “Donald Trump’s Nuclear Button Is Way Bigger Than Yours” published Wednesday attacks Trump for turning matters of state into a “measuring contest,” and accuses him of being obsessed to the point of damaging the country.
Cillizza references the moment Trump sparred with GOP Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida — assuring the public about the “size of his genitals,” and wrote Trump is “completely obsessed with being the biggest and the best.”
His main piece of evidence, however, is Trump’s Tuesday tweet directed at North Korea where he called America’s nuclear button “much bigger & more powerful,” than Kim Jong Un’s.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

The CNN editor goes on to call the tweet “stunning” and “entirely predictable.” He accuses the president of inflating the administration’s accomplishments and said there have been “dozens” of examples of blatant dishonesty from the president.
Cillizza fears the continued tough talk and in-your-face mentality could lead to nuclear war.
“As President, his compulsive need to not only have the biggest and the best everything but to shove it in the face of world leaders that he has the biggest and the best everything takes on an entirely different feeling,” Cillizza wrote. “One of uneasiness about whether the President of the United States grasps what his size contest obsession means in a world of nuclear weapons.”
