A Palmer Moment

Named after the character Palmer (David Clennon)
in John Carpenter's The Thing:

“Ya gotta be _____ kidding !!”
...In his Fox News interview, Trump said, "We will be submitting certain things and I will be perhaps speaking about this next week. But it's right now before the committee ... I have a lot of confidence in the committee."

Trump told Carlson he based his accusations on various news reports (as opposed to intelligence agencies).

In defending his expanded definition of the term wiretapping, Trump said he put term "in quotes" during his March 4 tweetstorm, and "that's a very important thing."

Trump did use the terms "'wires tapped'" and "'wire tapping'" in quotation marks, but also accused Obama of "tapping my phones" without using quotes...

He probably did the air-quote thing when he said it.

If he were to say it in the war room, it would be very Dr. Strangelove, like  "We could {air-quote} go nuclear {air-unquote} on North Korea!"
