Twitter Has Field Day With Trump’s ‘Cocked and Loaded’ Tweet: ‘Pls Delete or Rephrase’



Social media quickly latched on to President Donald Trump’s use of the phrase “cocked and loaded” in describing the U.S. military’s readiness to attack Iran.

Trump tweeted out the phrasing, a deviation from the usual term “locked and loaded,” while tweeting out an explanation about why he abruptly called off a major military strike against Iran that would have been in retaliation for a shot-down drone aircraft.

Twitter quickly caught on and joked about the phrasing.
