    I withdraw my previous statement.

    Donald Trump unquestionably knows more than you about what our allies are doing.

    He has routinely disregarded intelligence reporting.

    "Selectively," not "routinely."

    If he'd done so routinely, he wouldn't have known crap about the al-Bagdadi attack-- which he clearly did.

    OK, then how'd he know enough about the attack to make sure that the House didn't learn about it and leak it to our enemies?

    Answer: he took someone's advice about the real traitors in the government, who are willing to do or say anything to compromise Trump.

    Trump was handed a victory by the intelligence personnel he regularly belittles and ignores.

    He was afraid to be blamed for failure, so he took a step back and kept his mouth shut. That way he could blame others if it failed.

    That's funny.

    There are only four things that dependably pique Trumps attention; sports, women, money, and waxing his own hood.

    Good, you're admitting that he listened to his intelligence officers that time. You don't have to share my belief that the ones he didn't listen to were plotting against him, but that's a tiny bit of progress.

    (Now, let's see how you rationalize how he managed to "keep his mouth shut" without listening to advisers._
