The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur on Monday blasted a TIME magazine reporter who said he couldn’t “wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out” Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Michael Grunwald made the comment Saturday on Twitter, sparking a huge backlash. Grunwald later deleted the message and apologized, describing it as “dumb.”

Uygur said Grunwald was simply an authoritarian. Rather than questioning the government’s actions in regards to drone strikes, Grunwald simply accepted whatever the government said.
