What is the cause, Laertes, That thy rebellion looks so giant-like?

Giant-like? Huh? What a funny choice of words!
It’s like – the rebellion is big…but not…it’s LIKE a giant – but not gigantic. Is that what Claudius is attempting to express? That the rebellion isn’t as big as it might seem? Is it a way to manipulate Laertes right from the outset? I wouldn’t put it past him.
