upon hearing that President Trump played “I’ve-Got-a-Secret” in the Oval Office with the Russian Ambassador and the Foreign Minister, the White House is scrambling for a unified response. Their bifurcated allegiances forced the closest defenders into denial (again) and sent others to the pay phone to alert the NSA and CIA of this internal security breach. Regardless, this White House has decided to down-play Trump’s top secret reveal as just another of this President’s idiosyncrasies like preferring two scoops of ice cream to everyone else’s one.
The public is being asked to accept as harmless Trump’s street confetti that only yesterday arrived in a sealed envelope, marked “Your-Eyes-only, CONFIDENTIAL” from our allies. In Trump’s acolytes reach for normalcy, they advise Americans to “Look the other way. Why should it bother you? What’s the problem?” It is pretending that there isn’t a big festering zit on the tip of his nose. It hard to pretend that there isn’t a peach-haired gorilla in the room and that he hasn’t broken a Ming vase.
This President’s show-and-tell with virtually anyone who walks into his office jeopardizes our security. His bottomless ignorance of things deemed “secret” is precisely why he didn’t understand the risk posed by General Flynn and why it took 18 days to dump him. Donny’s need to be the biggest, have the newest, share the latest secrets, always be the winner has only made him, and all Americans, the biggest losers.
