Discussion: Trump Brags About Classified Syrian Battle At Manhattan Fundraiser

The President is supposedly the final arbiter of classification, so 45 can say whatever he wants, in total ignorance of the consequences.

That might explain why I didn't hear about it. I stopped reading WaPo and NYT long ago.

Maybe if they paid me....

Nah

I guess on the world according to Trump, if you pay $50000 a pop you deserve classified information.

The only surprise is that an RNC fundraiser took place at a non-Trump property.

Indeed. Even his wilful ignorance has a silver lining of sorts.

"The event reportedly raised $5 million to be used for both Trump’s campaign and the RNC legal defence fund."

All you need to do is threaten Princess Vespa. Or you could just guess the code.

Your box of chocolates and long stem rose is in the mail.

I've become so numb to the awful things Trump does, but think about this. He is essentially selling secrets in order to fill his reelection coffers.

Yeah, I'd like to see the attendance list on that one.

In other words, another $5 million for Trump & Co.'s legal fees.

Trump got 10% of the vote in Manhattan. The folks at the fundraiser are probably among them as well as those from the wealthy suburbs.

Richard Engel covered it recently during one of the Friday nights that Maddow gives over for his special assignments. Sounded pretty wild -- lots of Russian mercenaries involved. They got pretty brazen about engaging with US and other troops and then US more or less unleashed an onslaught on them.

But Pence is worse. Trump is a doddering old fool, while Pence is a True Believer. Not to downplay how truly awful and dangerous Trump is, but Pence is orders of magnitude worse, as he will actively work to establish a theocracy...

That is actually nothing new. What is new is that he is so brazen about it.
