Frightening enough that Trump will have possession of the nuclear codes that could lead in a few minutes to nuclear Armageddon. But Rick Perry, Trump’s pick for Energy Secretary, didn’t even know when he accepted Trump’s offer that he’d be in charge of the nation’s nuclear arsenal. He thought he was taking on a role as a global ambassador for the American oil and gas industry that he had long championed in his home state. Perry has no knowledge about nuclear weapons, no experience making decisions on nuclear weapons policy, no role in running anything associated with nuclear weapons, no acquaintance with the science of nuclear weapons.
Like other of Trump’s nominees, Perry is utterly unqualified. But to be unqualified to run the Education Department or the Labor Department -- bad as that is -- is less frightening than to be unqualified to be in charge of the nation's nuclear arsenal.
