ABC political hack Martha Raddatz tried to bait Homeland Security Adviser Thomas Bossert when she played the CNN WWE video and commented that it “seems like a threat”. Bossert didn’t take the bait but praised President Trump for standing up to the media. Great job!

The DHS adviser responded: “No one would perceive that as a threat. I hope they don’t. I do think that he’s beaten up in a way on cable platforms that he has a right to respond to.
He went on to praise President Trump: “the most genuine president and the most non-politician president we’ve seen in my lifetime. There’s a lot of cable new shows that reach directly into hundreds of thousands of viewers and they’re really not all very fair to the president. So I’m pretty proud of the president for developing a Twitter and a social media platform where he can talk directly to the American people.”
