As one might expect, Twitter users were both amused and appalled on Friday morning when President Donald Trump boasted that the U.S. was "cocked and loaded" before he called off a military assault on Iran.


Confirming -- as well as responding -- to a report that he had called off what could have been a major step into a war with the Middle Eastern country, the president tweeted: "On Monday they shot down an unmanned drone flying in International Waters. We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights [sic] when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it.”

Regardless of the fact that -- in terms of weaponry -- the phrase is actually "locked and loaded," social media commenters were having a field day with Trump's tweet, with one writing, "'Cocked and Loaded.' Michael Wolff just got off the phone with his publisher."
