Things have finally boiled over.
Not long after President-elect went after CNN for running a completely fake news story, the new commander-in-chief opened up a giant can of whoop-ass on the U.S. intelligence community, comparing them to Nazis.
Obviously, this didn’t go over well but Trump’s biggest accusation is much more critical (and potentially realistic), as he seems to be in a constant battle against fake or at least exaggerated news. What if leading members of our own Intelligence community were actually responsible…?
Last night, Trump laid it right on the line with an explosive accusation on Twitter and now, as reported by Politico, the war is ON. It’s a result of the aforementioned hoax that accused the new President of salacious conduct:
“Outgoing CIA Chief, John Brennan, blasts Pres-Elect Trump on Russia threat. Does not fully understand.’ Oh really, couldn’t do much worse – just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?”
This was a direct reply to Brennan, who lambasted Trump after the former made his Nazi Germany comparison. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this internal dust-up is going to end any time soon, so it looks like the new President is going to have settle things. Quickly.
Previously, Trump went after the intelligence community concerning the news reports that said President Obama and Trump had been briefed on the contents of a dossier supposedly containing damning information on the President-elect.
Afterward, Trump fired off:
“Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to ‘leak’ into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?”
Of course, Obama has recommended that Trump smooth things over because “you’re not going to be able to make good decisions without building some relationship of trust between yourself and that community.” Yeah, well, good advice…except if the community in question is doing things behind your back, or simply not doing their jobs well enough, that’s a serious issue.
And what did Obama care? If things didn’t go his way, he just signed another executive order.
This is a whole different world and Trump is already under fire.
