CNN’s New Day Hits Trump for Tweeting About LaVar Ball Instead of Navy Flight Crash


On Wednesday’s showing of New Day, CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota wondered whether President Trump has his priorities in order, particularly when it comes to his tweeting.

The president had just acknowledged the situation in the Sea of Japan where eight Americans were recovered after a US Navy plane crashed off the coast of Okinawa.

However, the president’s Navy tweet came hours after he spent the morning continuing his feud with LaVar Ball and complaining some more about professional athletes who kneel before the national anthem.

As Cuomo and Camerota cycled through Trump’s tweets today, they wondered why the president chose not to talk about the Navy’s situation first when it’s a more pressing issue than his squabbles with political enemies.

“We learned about this some time ago,” said Cuomo. “The president must have known about it when we did, at least we assume, but he wasn’t talking about this.”

Here are the tweets Trump decided to prioritize ahead of his statement on the Navy:
