According to leaker “Orange Throat,” White House staffers are horrified by President Donald Trump shallowness and lack of knowledge about international affairs.
“Trump is just dumb,” said Orange Throat in an email to the Business Standard News. “He doesn’t know anything. He thought Frederick Douglas (who campaigned against slavery) played in the NBA and was surprised North Korea elected Kim Jong-un at such a young age.” (Kim became president after his father died because North Korea is a dictatorship with no elections.)
Orange Throat said White House staffers mockingly call Trump “Sarah Palin in a suit.”
White House staffers aren’t the only one worried about Trump’s intellect. According to the Washington Post, intelligence officials doubt if the president understands the daily briefings he receives. Trump has already asked intelligence officials to cut the length of the briefings and use lots of pictures and graphics.
“There are signs that the president may not be retaining all the intelligence he is presented, fully absorbing its nuance, or respecting the sensitivities of the information and how it was gathered,” said Post reporters Phillip Parker and Ashley Rucker.
Intelligence officers are already horrified Trump blabbed secrets to Russian diplomats and Philippines leader Rodrigo Duterte.
