WATCH: Chris Cuomo smacks down ‘silly’ Trump advocate downplaying president’s ‘lock and load’ threat











Early Friday morning, Trump tweeted, “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”“I don’t have any concerns at all,” Grenell stated. “Look, political types are going to say keep trying to message ‘locked and loaded,’ but they’re missing the rest of the sentence. And I think it’s really disingenuous and shameful to not continue the rest of the sentence.”“He’s talking about a missile defense program at this point, he’s talking about playing defense, he’s saying if they should act,” he added.

‘Isn’t that the part of the tweet that Donald Trump wants people to read? That is the part he wants read,” Grenell was asked. “I’ve been watching your show all morning. I haven’t heard you talk about President Obama saying we could destroy North Korea,” Grenell parried. Report Advertisement ‘That’s because that’s not the imminent situation, okay?” Cuomo shot back before adding. “Hold on a second, Richard. you talked plenty,” when Grenell tried to interrupt him. “The idea of bringing up what a past president said when you’re dealing with an imminent and breaking situation is silly,” Cuomo lectured. “You don’t do that. You deal with what’s on the table before you right now. And we both know you may choose to ignore it willfully, but we both know that President Trump uses inflammatory language on purpose. He sees it as a show of strength.” “So to say that every part of the tweet must be weighed equally is naive at best and misleading at worst,” the CNN host concluded.
