One of them is responsible for giving Trang US Coast Guard Major and White House Military Office member McCarron, who is”carrying a bag”, is a member of the White House Military Office.(Jayna McCarron).
McCarron’s diagnosis also made the public turn their attention to the mysterious handbag in her hand.
As long as Trump appears的In public , McCarron carrying a bag will always follow.
The American media once teased that this package appeared The frequency is higher than the first lady, it should be the president’s wife.
Then, in this bag What the hell is it?
The bag in McCarron’s hand is made of special metal and wrapped in black leather. It weighs 20 kilograms.
If you think it looks bulky Something seems to be nothing special, but that would be a big mistake.
This is not an ordinary bag, It’s not Trump’s personal items, nor is it for a concave shape, but a”nuclear football” known as a”doomsday tool”(The Nuclear Football).
It contains guidelines for launching nuclear weapons and With authentication and other devices, the president can contact all parties anytime and anywhere and issue orders to attack with nuclear weapons.
In short, it’s Can activate the US nuclear arsenal.
according to US media , It only takes 5 minutes from opening this bag to launching a nuclear bomb.
There are 4 important files in the package.
One is the”black manual”, inside It lists the action plans with different strike strengths, recording the number of nuclear missiles in the United States, deployment locations and planned launch routes;
The second is the list of classified bases, which records the list of secret bases that can be used by the president during emergencies;
The third is an emergency broadcast procedure, which records the president’s broadcast to the whole country after the bombing;
Fourth is a password card, which can only be confirmed after confirming the password The identity of the president.
Because only the president has the power to give orders, “nuclear football” must always be accompanied Around the President.
There is more than one”nuclear football”, There is another for the president to spare, and the third is to follow the vice president.
This overweight handbag, of course, will not be carried by the president himself, this A professional”bag carrier” is required.

As a nuclear power, the Russian president will also carry a suitcase with him when he travels. Codenamed”Cheget”.
No matter where Putin goes, there is always one An officer’s suitcase is inseparable.
This big black suitcase is very mysterious and frequently arouses people’s curiosity.

As the head of a country, of course, you must ensure that you control the ultimate weapon’s control equipment for the first time in an emergency.
but such an important thing In history, its managers have made many ridiculous jokes.
A visit by President Ford In France, he forgot the”nuclear football” and the”bag man” on the plane together, and walked alone first.
President Reagan likes to pack”biscuits” He went into his wallet and stuffed it in his butt pocket. After an attempted assassination, his”biscuits” were missing, scaring the assistants in a cold sweat, but they were found later.
The more capricious President Carter is President Carter, who refuses to”carry man” and”nuclear football””I went to the farm with him on holiday, and they had to take a”nuclear football” to live in a motel 10 kilometers away.
One more time, he actually””The biscuits” were left in the jacket pocket and sent to the dry cleaner…

Clinton is also forgetful, once After the event, he left the”bag-carrying man” on the street and let the poor man chase after him for 15 minutes.
This small The”nuclear button box” has the power to destroy the world.
so careless , Is it okay?
President is one of the most dangerous professions in the world. Being a president is very Dangerous, and even more terrifying, is the power held by the president.
If you abuse your power, Whether it is a”nuclear football” or a”Cheget” detonation, it will surely cause countless lives to be disgraced.
I hope they will never be opened one day.
