Donald Trump is a very stupid man.
How stupid? So glad you asked.
According to the Washington Post, Trump showed Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak highly classified intelligence about ISIS activities in Syria—provided by another nation and shared with the U.S. under strict conditions of confidentiality—during their closed-door meeting last week at the White House.
Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies,” a source told the paper.
BuzzFeed later confirmed the Post’s reporting.
But hey, he probably had a good reason, right? Sure! What could be a better reason than, uh...bragging to make some cool kids like you?
Yes, Donald Trump—a monumental idiot with the emotional intelligence of a three-year-old—reportedly spilled the classified beans while boasting to the Russians about his “great intel.”
“I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Trump reportedly blathered, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.
The Post reported that administration officials were forced to scramble to contain the massive spill caused by the commander in chief’s fuckup, including placing emergency calls to the CIA and NSA. (“Hi, CIA? You’re not gonna believe this...”)
We are so, so fucked!
