Former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) took to Twitter to encourage Secretary of Defense James Mattis to not take away the nuclear codes from President Donald Trump, but to instead give him the wrong set of codes.
On the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11, Franken asks, “How dangerous is Trump?”
Adding, “It’s time for Mattis to give him the wrong codes”:
How dangerous is Trump? It’s not the time for Mattis to tell Trump that he’s taking the nuclear codes away from him. It’s time for Mattis to give him the wrong codes.

Franken resigned from his Senate seat after several sexual misconduct allegations surfaced. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton appointed Lt. Gov. Tina Smith to fill Franken’s seat and serve for a one-year term.
The former senator was not the only person to say outlandish things about Trump on 9/11.
In an op-ed published by the Washington Post, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough wrote how Trump has done more damage to the United States than the terrorist attacks, which claimed almost 3,000 American lives:
My Latest—> Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could. https://t.co/DEnYurEFmW

“The gravest threat Trump poses to our national security is the damage done daily to America’s image,” he said.
