How long can this go on?


The story of what Donald Trump told the Russian Foreign Minister and Russian Ambassador to the US in a meeting last week is murky and complex.

The response from the White House has been confusing. First, a blanket denial. Then a denial that the president revealed “sources and methods”, despite the fact that nobody had reported that he had. Then, seemingly, a declaration from the President that he did it all on purpose.

We can’t have someone in the oval office, who doesn’t understand the meaning of the word confidential or classified.

    Bragging about our intel to Russia? Trump is too needy to be president by Richard Wolffe

    There is nothing Donald Trump loves more than a great superlative. He builds the tallest hotels. He is the most successful businessman. His inaugural crowds were the biggest ever. None of these claims are remotely true, no matter how exaggerated the adjective nor how emphatic the delivery.

    But after his alleged blabbing of highly classified intelligence to the Russians, Trump can now lay claim to the greatest superlative of any sitting president: he is the biggest bozo of them all. Bigger than the Bush who thought invading Iraq would be easy. Bigger than the biggest president who got stuck in his bathtub.

    Trump is the most unpatriotically reckless, most flamboyantly ignorant, most ludicrously incompetent of them all. Never mind The Apprentice, he’s actually The Biggest Loser.

    He ran an entire campaign on the premise that Hillary Clinton should be locked up for mishandling classified intel

    So how could Trump be so stupid? It’s impossible that he was clueless about the classified information he was leaking: he was clearly bragging about having the best intel to his Russian buddies.

    He is so desperate to impress them that he cannot distinguish between American interests and his own neediness. America First means Trump First, and if Trump wants to brag about his inaugural crowds or his intel reports, it’s all good. As Richard Nixon liked to say, if the president does it, that means it’s not illegal.

    This should be proof that the Republican refrain that businessmen are and would be best for government, if we want competent government, is false. Not only false but drastically dangerous.
