“The story as reported is not true,” barked National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. He was responding to Washington Post allegations that Trump was indiscreet during a meeting with Russian diplomats, last week:
During the May 10 meeting at the White House with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak, Trump began describing details about an Islamic State terror threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft, according to current and former U.S. officials.
Let’s hope POTUS avoids saying, “I did not reveal THAT Information.” Shades of the wording in another scandal.
But frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn. Here’s a president who ran on a domestic platform, but who is currently preoccupied with menacing the madman in North Korea and hassling a Muslim moderate in Syria. (Did you know that the reformers and the moderates come from the ranks of the Shiite and Sufi, and that Assad, an Alawite, is Shia?)
