President Donald Trump is the friend you tell a secret to, a secret that clearly is directly connected to you, and when you hear that secret come back to you, you know exactly who said it, and when you question him, he defends it by saying, “But I never said your name, though.”
During a photo opportunity with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the president just randomly spouted, “Hey, remember all that shit I told Russia when they was at the crib? Well, just know that I never said ‘Israel!’” I’m paraphrasing a bit, but you get the Polaroid.
The point is that no one said the president mentioned Israel. What was said was that the president leaked highly classified information during an Oval Office visit May 10 with the Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, and the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak. It was speculated that the highly classified information came from Israel, but that speculation wasn’t confirmed.
“Just so you understand, I never mentioned the word or the name Israel,” Trump said Monday during a press appearance with Netanyahu, which confirms a couple of things for me:
- The information absolutely came from Israel; and
- Trump absolutely shared that information with the Russians.
According to CNN, the information Trump shared was “centered on attempts by terrorist groups to load bombs into laptops in an attempt to blow up airliners.”
Because Trump not only is a loose cannon but also appears to be so out of his depth that he doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing, during the press appearance he walked away from Netanyahu before shaking hands, only to be told that he needed to go back. When Trump returned and shook the Israeli prime minister’s hand, he then revealed his secrets—because he’s a messy bitch.
Trump also told the press corps, “You have another story wrong.”
Unfortunately for Trump, it’s only a story now because he couldn’t keep his orange trap shut.
