Trump Accuses Obama CIA Chief Of Leaking ‘Fake News’ And All Hell Breaks Loose

Donald Trump still hasn’t learned just to shut the fuck up and concentrate on figuring out how to run the country. On Sunday night,  the President-elect took a break from hate-tweeting civil rights heroes and comedy shows to renew his assault on our intelligence community.

“Outgoing CIA Chief, John Brennan, blasts Pres-Elect Trump on Russia threat. Does not fully understand.” Oh really, couldn’t do…” Trump tweeted at Fox News. Twelve minutes later, he finished his tweet, adding, “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?”

First off, there is no “fake news.” The reports published in full by Buzzfeed contained, as was mentioned in the original report, some of the claims are incorrect and others are unsubstantiated but that hasn’t stopped the conservative world from “debunking” the ones that were stated from the beginning to be incorrect and pretending it somehow delegitimizes the full report. This bold strategy has not exactly paid off, as the BBC confirmed with at least four sources that the published memos are legitimate. One U.S. intelligence official even told the network that audio and video of Trump in compromising positions exists.

Unfortunately, facts have never stopped Trump from running his mouth. Fortunately, our friends on Twitter had a lot to say about Trump’s latest stupid comment:

As one person mentioned, there was no attack. In fact, Brennan’s message was supportive of Trump.

“I think Mr Trump has to understand that absolving Russia of various actions that it’s taken in the past number of years is a road that he, I think, needs to be very, very careful about moving down,” Brennan said on Sunday of the President-elect’s decision to defend Russia until he was left with absolutely no choice but to admit they hacked his opponents. Brennan says that he and his agency want to ensure that Trump has every tool he needs to make good decisions as President.

There’s no such thing as honesty in Trump’s world, though.
