Because President Vladimir TrumPutin has no idea what in the hell he’s doing—and that includes, I don’t know, showing classified material to Russian officials—a senior European official has told the Associated Press that since our president can’t even hold water, his country may stop sharing classified info with the United States.

Such sharing “could be a risk for our sources,” the official said, the Associated Press reports.

While the official did not want his identity or his country named because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about the matter, he did note that this latest news is cause for concern.

Currently, some White House officials are declaring that the president did not reveal classified information, despite the president’s tweets noting that he had shown Russian officials the information during a recent visit.

“I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining ... to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism,” TrumPutin, aka Twitter Fingers, tweeted.

A senior U.S. official told AP, “Trump shared details about an Islamic State terror threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. The classified information had been shared with the president by an ally, violating the confidentiality of an intelligence-sharing agreement with that country.”

TrumPutin, being the dumb-ass he is, had no idea that what he’d just done had violated all kinds of presidential shit. So White House officials, looking to minimize any damage, began frantically placing calls to the National Security Agency and the CIA, AP reports.

The CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have declined to comment.

What a real president would say: “yes, both of our countries are concerned about ISIL and civilian air safety. I will prepare a dossier of our latest intelligence and send it over to your embassy after our intelligence people have had a chance to scrub it.”

What a doofus would do: “hey, look at this cool stuff on my desk! I have people tell me cool stuff every morning. Some of it about you guys too. Just look!”
