Fox, CNN Analyst Harlan Hill Seemingly Calls For Nuclear Strike Against North Korea (UPDATED)

There really is no getting around this. It looks like Harlan Hill just called for nuclear war.

In a tweet Wednesday, the Fox News and CNN guest said that it’s time to rally behind the President and that “North Korea must be neutralized NOW.”

In case anyone didn’t know what he meant by “neutralize,” Hill included a GIF of an exploding nuclear mushroom cloud.

Hill’s comment comes a day after President Donald Trump made his own controversial remarks about North Korea. On Tuesday, Trump gave a statement about the U.S. opioid crisis but ended by instead talking about North Korea, warning them not to make anymore threats to the US.

“They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and, frankly, power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”

Trump showed no regrets this morning, furthering his point by tweeting the U.S. has a nuclear arsenal “far stronger and more powerful than ever before.”

Less than an hour before Trump made his statement yesterday, Hill was on Fox Business talking about the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

“So at this point, this unhinged dictator in North Korea has this capability to deliver a nuclear weapon to the United States, and he is fast working on a way to deliver it to the continental United States, major American cities. What I don’t like about this guy is that he’s unpredictable. Kim Jong-un, we cannot forecast how far he’s willing to go. And that makes him dangerous.”

Before seemingly calling for war, the Democratic Trump supporter’s immediate reaction to Trump’s statement was to point out the lack of opposition previous presidents have given North Korea.

UPDATE:

Harlan Hill would like you to know that his nuclear explosion GIF immediately preceding the statement “North Korea must be neutralized NOW” was NOT advocating nuclear conflict.
