On Thursday, CNN host Erin Burnett dismissed Iran's incessant "death to America" chanting as merely "a thing and a trope." Burnett was interviewing Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) about President Trump's recent statement that he believed Gen. Qasem Soleimani had been actively plotting attacks on U.S. embassies. Now, Erin Burnett wonders if Trump may have divulged classified information in answering questions about the threat posed by Gen. Soleimani. The president can't win.

Rep. Turner responded by saying that it should come as no surprise that Iran "has been coordinating and targeting interests throughout the Middle East," pointing out that Iran's entire parliament continues to chant "Death to America."

Burnett interrupted, "I will say I was in Tehran when they were chanting 'Death to America' once. I was at a rally. The people couldn't have been more friendly to me personally as an American. It sort of felt like a -- it felt like a thing and a trope as opposed to anything that was actually seriously meant and considered. I understand your point but having been there my experience was quite different."

"Erin," Rep. Turner responded, "your entire life, Iran ... has chanted 'Death to America,' and they have taken actions against Americans, American interests, in ways that are lethal, killing Americans, giving weaponry to people who have intentions and who do kill Americans, so it's not just a slogan. This obviously is something that Iran has systematically continued to do. It's part of their seeking weapons of mass destruction and their claim to want to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. These are real threats from the leadership of Iran even though I'm glad you had a safe and a warm response, the people on the street may be different than those who are controlling their military."

I actually think it might be more helpful if this is how Trumptydumpty would talk about Iran while empowering the CIA DI and our allies to quietly keep them in check.

The President, by definition can't divulge classified information, he's the one who ultimately determines what becomes declassified!
