This is literally a meme clock and quite honestly there is no reason for it to move forward. I mean my god, prior to Trump winning the elections there was a genuine and palpable fear of direct military conflict with Russia, and now that possibility has basically vanished.
This is a load of guff. They have a political narrative that must be maintained; that trump is an aggressive expansionist. Despite actually being an isolationist.
I have my own clock. It's 1 minute to midnight and it moves forward every time someone spergs out about Trump for no reason.
When it hits midnight nothing happens but its handy for me to make a big scene about.
