Nate Silver, the statistics whiz who founded FiveThirtyEight, tweeted this ominous warning this morning:
Silver explains why, in this piece he wrote earlier today:

Some of them might be reassured by how Trump conducts himself during the general election campaign or whom he picks as his running mate.

Looks like the president may have just tweeted an image from a classified satellite or drone that shows the aftermath of an accident at an Iranian space facility. Yeah, no big deal.
