Trump surprised everyone, including his own staff, by revealing classified information to the Russians. His staff at first denied it, possibly believing that it could not be true. Then, as he often does, Trump made fools of his own people not only by admitting he had shared the intelligence with the Russians but that he has “an absolute right” to divulge anything he chooses.
Since it was such a surprise to everyone in the White House — and then seemed to cause such a quick stir in the intelligence community immediately afterward — it is safe to say he did this entirely on his own without benefit of the intelligence community or his own security team. And it is just as safe to say it was shared on a whim with no forethought at all.
Can there be anyone left in America who does not see the extreme dangers of a president who combines amazing ignorance with stunning thoughtlessness, adds in a grotesque ego and blends it with a sense of total irresponsibility?
Never let yourself forget these two photos, one showing Trump with a crucial ally and one showing him with active predators. The first shows him very uncomfortable with and almost ignoring a friend and the second showing him relaxing with buddies who represent the country which had actively interfered with our election. Remember, too, that the picture with the Russians was taken by Russian photographers, since Trump wouldn’t let American journalists or photographers in the room.
