Citations needed. He gives no references for any of it, just makes assertions. Of course the last one is ridiculous. But even the tsunami claims are based on nothing but his imaginings.

There seems to be a proliferation of these kinds of quasi-science channels on YouTube.

This is all wrong. Nuclear bombs cannot get wet. If they do you have to put them in rice for a day to dry them out before they work again.
common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

That's why he put the bomb in a bathyscaphe rather than just dropping it into the water. He probably also filled the rest of the bathyscaphe with rice, and then wrapped it in Saran Wrap.

Man, I do not get your sense of humor. 

I'm at work and don't watch videos at work, what is the proposed reason that someone might bomb the marianas trench?

To make a YouTube video about it, I presume.
And I figured he'd just made a video based on his last stoned conversation.

I would just have them deliver the bomb. If it didn't work after they handled it I'd sue.

He even starts out wrong. The pressure at depth might crush the bomb casing, but it wouldn't flatten it like a pancake. That's Acme Corporation physics.

Maybe it was a hyperbole bomb?
