Trump is an autodidact with a lifelong history of ignorant teachers.

As a kid, Clancy's early stuff made me want to be a CIA analyst. Ryan, not Clarke. Analyst, not agent. I loved the idea that maybe one day my work would be used to cause real change or save lives.

I grew up and did other things. But I have to imagine those analysts in their 30's and 40's kind of had the same feelings. This must be killing them.

This guy has got to go. He's a threat to all of us. Worldwide.

Look on the bright side. The less he understands the less he can blab to any Russian or Chinese 'diplomats'.

Well, would someone show this dumbfark the door?

I'm willing to give Trump the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he's just mind-bogglingly profoundly stupid.

That term to describe Trump has been in use here on Fark for a long time. It's not news, it's Time Magazine.

That takes some doing. And they should bark at him like some junkyard dog.

It doesn't help that Trump is quite illiterate.
 
2019-02-02 09:15:30 PM  
Intelligence has never wanted anything to do with trump

Plenty.
 
2019-02-02 09:16:33 PM  
It would be more accurate to call them "Dumfux" briefings instead of Intelligence.
 
2019-02-02 09:18:36 PM  
He is he very model of a modern major imbecile.
 
2019-02-02 09:19:05 PM  
he doesn't appear to have any other setting than 'bluff', so it will always be a useless exercise
 
2019-02-02 09:19:42 PM  
I've heard of military coup but an Intelligence Coup would be a first and a welcomed one at that...for now.

Plenty.


Except that Grima started out as human. AND he eventually repented.

Willfully ignorant and gullible.  Fox News' business model.

We could always try to educate him.

By being creepy 100% of the time.

Oh come on.  The North Koreans blew up their testing site with several regular nuclear bombs and at least one hydrogen bomb.  What more do you expect?  There's no pleasing some people.  Jeez.  Now where are those Big Macs I asked for?
 
2019-02-02 09:22:43 PM  
I wonder if the Russians think he lies to them too?

I mean, habits are hard to break. I seriously doubt if he knows what the "truth" is anymore.

Or at least where it begins and where it ends.

Sad...

I think he's forcefully ignorant. And somehow such staggering ineptitude and its awakened kinfolk have now been forcibly inflicted on all of us. When will this end???

I first read that as buff then laughed. That is him... he'll bluff right out.

I see they have the "butthole mouth" expression down cold!

He's ignant.

It's worse than that he don't know jack shiat: he don't know jack shiat and he's proud of it and actively works to stay that way.

/Rot in hell for inflicting this upon the world, Trumpers...
 
2019-02-02 09:27:33 PM  
Jesus. How did we get to this again? The president is a child.
 
2019-02-02 09:28:31 PM  
Willfully ignorant and passionately credulous are a dangerous combination.
 
2019-02-02 09:29:41 PM  
I have to imagine these intelligence aides are the first trump staffers to notice because someone in hiring misread and selected intelligent people. I'm sure they'll fix the glitch.

Dedication.

I learned watching QI that moron is the Welsh word for carrot.

It's an insult to carrots - you can make good things with carrots.

It reminds me of that Q-Anon bs - it's not really a consistent idea so much as the position that every 'expert' is wrong, and true believers have some gnostic insider knowledge.

On the other hand he is the right color.
 
2019-02-02 09:37:24 PM  
 At what point, exactly, did we go from wanting leaders to be smarter than us, to craving someone who "tells it like it is?" Even when he or she is categorically wrong?
 
2019-02-02 09:37:31 PM  
This really should be grounds for getting rid of him. This is unbelievably dangerous.
 
2019-02-02 09:37:36 PM  
At a Congressional hearing on national security threats, the leaders of all the major intelligence agencies, including the Directors of National Intelligence, the CIA and the FBI contradicted Trump on issues relating to North Korea, Russia, the Islamic State, and Iran. In response, Trump said the intelligence chiefs were "passive and naïve" and suggested they "should go back to school."

Jesus farking christ, this guy! I don't know what bothers me more, that he was elected, or that there are STILL millions who think he is doing a good job.
 
2019-02-02 09:38:23 PM  
Yeah, I heard about that.

Dammit, wrong image!

Trump's approach to national security:
