President-elect Donald Trump said that he is not concerned about his not participating in the traditional daily intelligence and national security briefings that he is supposed to receive every day…and apparently neither should the American people, because…
“I get it when I need it. I’m, like a smart person.” He told a Sunday TV news host. And he added, “I don’t have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day. I don’t need that. But I do say, ‘If something should change, let us know.'”
Just imagine how Trump supporters would react if words like that came out of President Obama’s mouth or Hillary Clinton’s mouth? If they declared themselves too smart for daily briefings Republicans heads would explode! Oh the elitism! Oh the vacation time! Oh the lack of time on task! For goodness sake are they sick or lazy? Maybe both?!
And when it was reported by the CIA and members of Congress that the intelligence community has reached a “consensus” that Russia definitely intervened in the presidential election to help Trump win the Presidency…of The United States!?
Well, the president-elect’s transition team responded by mocking the spy agency with “they’re same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.” And PE Trump added in an interview with Time Magazine: “It could be Russia. And it could be China. And it could be some guy in his home in New Jersey.”
Not only doesn’t our President-elect believe in taking regular intelligence and security briefings. He doesn’t even believe them when he gets them! Because he’s more intelligent than our intelligence agencies!
How lucky are we to finally have an intelligent president? And we know he’s intelligent because of the way he uses words like “like” and “New Jersey” in such appropriate ways. As in: “I’m… like… smart!” And “Some guy in New Jersey did it!” Hey! Only we New Jersians can blame things on New Jersey! And use like like that, like, you know???
But on the bright side, Mr.Trump emphasized that Vice President-elect Mike Pence was receiving daily briefings.
So at least someone, like… wants to be President!
