David Gregory praised President Donald Trump for his political savvy and “sophisticated” approach to world affairs on CNN this morning as a female co-anchor joined in, leaving Trump antagonist Chris Cuomo to shrink and pout in his seat.
“(Trump) is doing some sophisticated things here,” explained Gregory, by showing force yet also restraint in dealing with the aftermath of WMD use in Syria and the testing of nuclear weapons by North Korea.
“Maybe embracing NATO is not something that Vladimir Putin is going to like, you know, so he’s taking steps to ramp up the pressure on Russia,” the journalist continued. Host Alisyn Camerota chimed in, “And aligning with China. That’s strategically smart.”
“He just sent 59 missiles into Syria and we’re not sure why!” whined Cuomo.
“It sent a very strong political message,” dissented Gregory.
