Kimmel: Gen. Milley Had to ‘Baby Proof’ the Nuclear Football

‘He took secret steps to make sure that Trump wouldn’t launch nuclear weapons’


KIMMEL: “It's a story of a very nervous group of high ranking government military officials following the attack on Jan. 6th on the Capitol. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was so concerned about what Trump might do after that. He took secret steps to make sure that Trump wouldn't launch nuclear weapons. After a call from Nancy Pelosi, Milley convened a meeting with all the top military officials and instructed them to call him immediately if there's any move by Trump to launch a nuclear strike. Basically, he had to baby proof the nuclear football.”
