Over the last few months, Donald Trump has said a myriad of dumb things. But his latest remarks are becoming dangerous. Just one day after throwing the CIA under the bus over the agency’s report on Russia’s role in the election, Trump declared on Fox News Sunday that he doesn’t need to receive a daily intelligence briefing because he’s “smart.”
“I don’t need to be told … the same thing every day, every morning ― same words. I don’t need that. I’m, like, a smart person,” Trump told host Chris Wallace, stating he only gets the briefing when he needs it.
According to The Huffington Post, Trump is only receiving an intelligence briefing just once a week. President Barack Obama, however, has a briefing six days a week.
