In the house of James Murdoch tonight, son of Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of News Corp, Biden offered a grim picture of nuclear Armageddon if Putin acts on his threats. 

“First time since the Cuban missile crisis, we have a direct threat of the use nuclear weapon if in fact things continue down the path they are going,” Biden warned the donors who gathered for a DNC fundraiser, the second one  the President has been attending tonight.

“I’m trying to figure out what is Putin’s off ramp? Where does he find a way out? Where does he find himself in a position that he does not not only lose face but lose significant power within Russia?”

The President said he’d spent much time trying to hold NATO together. “There’s a lot of changes going on.” 

Biden did not hold back on the prospects of the nuclear threat from Russia. 

“We’ve got a guy I know fairly well,” he said of Putin. “He’s not joking when he talks about potential use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons because his military is you might say significantly underperforming,” explained Biden. 

“I don’t think there’s any such thing as the ability to easily (use) a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon,” Biden shared his concern.
