CNN commentator Phil Mudd said the deep state is “going to kill” Trump while he sat on a panel discussing the latest anti-Trump issue on The Lead with Jake Tapper. Tapper called him on it.
Mudd said, “as a former government official, government’s going to kill this guy, this guy’s defending Putin…this is how you defend us?”
Tapper said, obviously, you mean that figuratively. On Tapper’s second try, Mudd said, “yes, obviously”, and then continued once again explaining why the government will kill the President. Tapper then cut him off.
They should have kept Jeffrey Lord and fired this guy.
Listen to the clip. It sounds like he means “kill” literally, not figuratively.
