Trump becoming sour and dark as he turns against son-in-law Jared Kushner

According to a New York Times report by Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush, President Donald Trump has not only been overheard complaining about having to fire his disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn, but has also begun directing his mood swings at his son-in-law-turned-adviser Jared Kushner.

“His own mood, according to two advisers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, has become sour and dark,” the report claims, “turning against most of his aides — even his son-in-law, Jared Kushner — and describing them in a fury as ‘incompetent,’ according to one of those advisers.”

Along with sources decrying the president’s temperament, the report also suggests that some aides believe Trump doesn’t understand his intel well enough to have leaked anything serious to the two Russian officials he met with in the Oval Office last week.

“In private, three administration officials conceded that they could not publicly articulate their most compelling — and honest — defense of the president: that Mr. Trump, a hasty and indifferent reader of printed briefing materials, simply did not possess the interest or knowledge of the granular details of intelligence gathering to leak specific sources and methods of intelligence gathering that would do harm to United States allies,” the report claimed.

1. Because for a dumbass, his ass is too dumb to leak?

I can see why they wouldn't want to argue that where he can see it.

Still doesn't mean he didn't pick up enough just to satisfy himself that he's "working hard" to blow something important.

35. Just because a police officer is allowed to fire a gun

does not in any way imply they are absolved of responsibility if they misuse it and cause harm, even "accidentally".

4. So he is too stupid to understand the intel.

How is that helpful? The take away is that the President of The United States is a moron. Does that make anyone feel better? I don't think so.

6. Another take: Trump didn't care enough about sources and methods to keep his mouth shut.

He shared what he had with a country smart enough to figure out where it came from.

As they say, "Loose lips..."

12. Wow! Trump "did not possess the interest or knowledge of the granular details of intelligence"

Is that supposed to be a good thing? Who is the true president then? Since Trump is too stupid to read and absorb information?!

WHO?! We deserve to know!!! And WHY do they think this is OK!? If he can't do the job, he should step down!

Really? Who would have predicted that putting inexperienced, incompetent buffoons in charge would lead to chaos?

Just because trump is too dumb to know what he's leaking doesn't mean shite. Is ignorance the excuse he's going to use on the stand?

25. As someone who works in politics

(Disclaimer-- I'm on the campaign side not the government side).

One of the first rules of thumb (ethics aside) is never to use family members (by birth or marriage) as your staff. At the end of the day (win or lose) they're still your family and you want to keep your relationships in tact. This is a tactic of separating politics from your personal life.

Jared's role will probably damage Trumpty Dumpty's relationship with his precious Ivanka.

did not ruin Trump's relationship with Ivanka?

Oh, wait... it didn't.

She's soulless too.
