CNN's chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin on Tuesday criticized President Donald Trump's reported orders for a military parade as authoritarian.

"We’re getting more North Korean every day in this country," he said. "You know, yesterday the president says people who don't cheer are un-American and treasonous. And today, we're going to start having big parades with tanks and missiles."

Americans deserve to choose "whether they want to have that kind of country," he argued.

"I mean, we have a country where we celebrate our troops," Toobin said. "When they come home from battle in lower Manhattan and we throw ticker tape."

He then used Trump's own words to drive his point home.

"The idea in peacetime, simply to have tanks roll through the streets of Washington, that’s—to use a phrase that the president likes to use, in my experience, that's in my experience un-American," Toobin concluded.
