"This is life and death. What Trump says has real life consequences which could kill Americans or cause harm to other nations" Malcolm Nance on Hardball w/Chris Matthews 4/12/2017 quote transcribed here

It's another Malcolm Nance appearance that drives me again to my laptop to get down what he says, this time on Hardball with Chris Matthews April 12, transcribed here, next entry in the  City of Angels Winging It / Malcolm Nance Transcript Project.  In this clip, after a discussion about Carter Page and whether he’s an exhibitionist, a spy, or a counter spy, they agree he's an idiot not just to the Russians*** then: 

The quotes that drove me to my laptop this time are:

MN:  His statement towards North Korea yesterday terrified me, I mean the North Koreans are not playing games with these atomic weapons they have and to make a statement like, well if China doesn't come with us, we'll just take care of it ourselves, what he says is going to have real life consequences which could kill American citizens or cause harm to other nations.  

CM: This is not a TV show. 


Transcript here: 

09:16
CM:  He [Trump] has now decided he's going to be a warrior, he's going to take on Assad. Going back to something like a normal American foreign policy compared to Bannon and that whole America first job.  Now he's onto this whole new thing and it's like it happened overnight because he talked to Ivanka:

MN:  Well it appears that he's making war fighting decisions on the basis of the politics of emotion, and I predicted early on that it probably was Ivanka who showed him the video showed him she was upset. 
We changed all of our norms, we went right back to the Barack Obama school of Let’s Take Out the Syrian Air Force, only he pulled his punch, he didn't destroy anything other than a few old air craft that will now be replaced with better airplanes.
He didn't destroy the chemical weapons and he actually called the enemy and their associates and told them the missiles would be coming and get off the base. 

(Background then)

HERE IT IS the quote that drove me to my laptop to get this sequence of Hardball into the project:

C:  A lot of people think we're better off having his cabinet run the show than him.

11:02
MN:  Well he is President of the United States, he gets to be the final decision maker, you know. 
But this is to him perhaps a form of Apprentice and he thinks that this is just the way CEO’s do things. 
But this is life and death.
His statement towards North Korea yesterday terrified me, I mean the North Koreans are not playing games with these atomic weapons they have and to make a statement like, well if China doesn't come with us, we'll just take care of it ourselves, what he says is going to have real life consequences which could kill American citizens or cause harm to other nations.  

CM: This is not a TV show.
