Following a long, rambling presser in which GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump encouraged a foreign nation to interfere in the election, CNN’s David Gregory admitted that he had “run out of words to express my shock” about Trump.
He observed “how completely beyond the pale Donald Trump is as a potential leader of the free world and commander-in-chief of our country. This is beyond the pale.”
Trump had expressed his enthusiasm for Russia hacking into State Department emails and releasing them to the public.
“It’s as if this is a child playing with matches who doesn’t understand how badly he and the country can get burned,” Gregory said. “It’s a very serious thing.”
“The lack of seriousness and the intemperance with which he speaks about important national security matters should certainly give people pause,” he added.
