Gardner Rips 'Stupid' Question From CNN Host on NKorea

Sen. Cory Gardner got into a heated discussion with a CNN host Tuesday, calling her questions about the location of a meeting regarding North Korea "stupid."

The Colorado Republican appeared on "CNN Newsroom" with host Brooke Baldwin and was asked why the White House is holding a meeting with the entire Senate in a secure conference room in the Old Executive Office Building, rather than on Capitol Hill.

"That's where the meeting is at. Arguing about where the meeting on North Korea is is about the stupidest thing Washington could be doing," Gardner told Baldwin. "It's almost as silly as putting the Super Bowl in downtown Pyongyang [North Korea's capital]. It's something we don't need to do. It's ridiculous.

"Let's fight about the policy on North Korea. Let's argue about the right direction for this country. Having an argument over where a meeting occurs, that's just silly."

The Washington Free Beacon posted a clip of the exchange on YouTube.

Baldwin then asked whether the Senate is being used as a political prop by moving the entire body to the White House complex in a show of strength and unity.

"The last thing we ought to be doing is arguing about where the meeting is. That's just stupid," Gardner insisted. "If Washington gets caught in an argument over where a meeting is, no wonder the American people are so pissed off at it."

President Donald Trump invited the Senate to a Wednesday meeting that will cover the threat posed by North Korea. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats are expected to brief lawmakers during the session.
