The Clear And Present Danger That Is trump


President donald trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, the Washington Post reports, citing current and former U.S. officials who said that trump's disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

If there's any bright news, trump is killing the spy industry. Why should Putin pay anybody to spy for him when all he has to do is call up trump for tea time in the Oval Office?

Remember how the Far Right yelled and screamed about Hillary and her private email server? They pushed about, what, eleven different investigations to find out that she never really revealed classified intel through that server, that she was never a national security risk. Can you imagine her doing something this clueless, this reckless, this blatant a disregard for our own intel? Hillary is Ambitious, yes: Stupid, no.

Why worry about trump's emails? trump will just call over the Russian ambassador and hand all the Daily Briefing folders in person.

Remember Alger Hiss?

Remember the Rosenbergs?

Remember Aldrich Ames?

Remember Robert Hanssen?

You'd better. Every single one of them are currently being outclassed by the biggest leaker of them all.

And 62 million Americans voted this goddamn national security risk into the White House.

Every Republican in Congress is defending this crook in the White House, either by silence or eager proclamation.

We are so very fucked.

President four-year-old still can't stop himself from running his mouth when the big people are in the room.
