Have they tried PowerPoint, I hear that makes really good presentations?

Jordan Williams · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Genuine question to Trump supporters: how on Earth can u STILL support this man?

LouLikestowatch · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

the next eight years??!!  <faint>   gawd that's a scary thought. I'm not even American

BraniusBalki · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Can anyone else read them to him? The kings of old used to have bards to tell them the news of the realm. Bring him a bard…. With a lute.

William Cashion · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

He's 'like a smart person' if said smart person had an I.Q. of 60.

Zaphod Beeblebrox · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

It’s Nice to know that our National security, healthcare & wealth of the Country are in such good (tiny) hands..Jeeeze!
Maybe the fake tanned Narcissistic ‘Wanna be’ Dictator would take these Essential for the Country ‘Daily briefings’ if he could watch it on TV every morning from say 6AM to 9AM ET. Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy & Brian Kilmeade could provide it…. I mean, we don’t want to fill his enormous brain with anything important to do with the Fucking job he’s signed up to do for potentially
8 years.
*Just a thought!*🤪

Jarle Malmin · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

If you can not read a 4 page Briefings with cartoons on the pages. Then he has no business to be the leader of a nation.

stew360 · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

He gets his daily briefing from Fox and Friends

AWARHERO · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

So.. he's refusing to do his job? "YOU'RE FIRED!"
I'm like a smart person… No…You're not. Biff Tannen is smarter then Trump…

Alang · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Kushner the jew gets the daily briefing?

Xmetal · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

yeah … I'd not think anything of this (as someone who HATES Trump) if he was maybe getting the briefing like 50%/50% oral and written …. ESPECIALLY if it showed he cares and is absorbing the info…. I may even say bringing this up "makes liberals .." (I AM a liberal) "… look like the McResistance" …. but put all the other things together like he is already getting it dumbed down and he doesn't even pay attention because … he wants to go watch TV like "Fox and Friends" … FFS … this doesn't surprise me and that scares me 😐

darkashtar · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

The way you know Trump is a moron is that he qualifies himself as "I am like a smart person". Then again this is the self proclaimed "stable genius" that refused to take an IQ test when MENSA offered after he challenged Rex Tillerson to take an IQ test to see who is smarter. In fact the fact that he uses the word smart is a clear sign of his stupidity because the better word would have been intelligent.

CAROLE LA POINTE · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

People, people, Donald can't read. Why are we discussing this? Anyone who has heard his speeches knows he is not a reader. As for briefings…… Donald? He'd miss too much golf.

V · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

An endless supply of coloring books and KFC should keep him occupied, maybe read him Curious George before bed. At best a legend in his own mind.

william wan · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Refuse to read or don't know how to read???…

Angela Fisher · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

The oval office will be renamed the oral office.. Although unlike Clinton (who knew the fun meaning of that term) Trump is using it literally because he can't Read. Someone get this Dumb ass hooked on Phoenix

Dai Lee · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

He's like a smart person? But, you have to appreciate him not lying and saying he IS a smart person! His mom didn't like him for a reason, you can see why now.?!

Joe Gillian · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

It's disgusting that this pretentious buffoon speaks as if hes already won the election in 2020. By the look of things his mind will be slime running out his ears by then.

Tim Levis · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Well just look at the face paint and hair he is a clown, this is why we have midterm elections VOTE DO NOT BITCH VOTE TO GET HIM OUT!

Carl McGregor · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

His arrogance will get alot of people killed

Spes Ultima · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Trump can read, but he has an extremely hard time comprehending what he reads.

Giuliana Rexic · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Damn, David has BDF in this video. That stands for Big Dick Face. And as Martha Stewart would say, it's a good thing!

Stable Genius by the way P

Ogsonofgroo · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

No cartoons and graphs, words over two syllables, and more than a page… still too complicated for such a stable genius eh!

Mohit Gadre · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Trump probably doesn't read the intelligence briefings because he doesn't care about the country. If he read them, he would be forced to act on them .He only cares about appearance, helping his rich donors, and wasting his potential potential (I purposely said it twice because he has yet to prove himself that he is capable).He is right now the most un-American American

DGA2000 · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Illiterate POS

Nias · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Summation of the Trump. He says tell him when something changes. So he is fundamentally reactionary when he has the tools to proactively shape events. In the first month the factions in his admin we're basically chasing around a dog to see who can collar it for their ends. The Republicans figured out that he is a lazy rubber stamp, and so, want to keep him from talking to Dems as he changes with the wind. He is intellectually lazy and just wants others to work and come up with legislation, sign it, and say it's great. Same reason his businesses where he trademarks his name do okay but managing a casino he fails at.

Bruno Esser · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

What ist this #germandeathcamps Advertisement about ? Why is this a Thing and do you see it see it as well? If so what do you think about it ?

Drew Shriver · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

that's hilarious. the VSG can't even read a daily briefing.

cuttingedgecomix · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Def need a laugh emoji instead of a like for this one.

Idiocracy Squared.

Steven Manning · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Between this and the lack of security protocols among his staff, Vladimir Putin laughs. Putin always wanted someone in the seat of power in the US who neutralizes America on the world stage, and he certainly got it. The FSB must be having a field day with Trump.

Nx Doyle · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

I blame people like Chris Wallace, who along with Shep Smith have been rare voices of dissent at Fox News, for not hammering home the next question.

The grab in this segment says it all. Once Wallace raised the subject of a weekly v daily version, trump's response was to vamp his way out with "I'm like a smart person" and some nonsense about repetition of briefings.
Then back we go to David, who instantly points out that a president must know what's in a briefing in order to decide whether he needed to read/hear it or not. And that's the next question for Chris Wallace, but he doesn't ask it. Why? Did he think it was a cul-de-sac? Was he letting trump slide?

Of all the broadcast interviews trump has done in the last year, only one featured a journalist who was prepared to keep pushing after it was clear that trump was in distress. That was John Dickerson's CBS interview. What happened when he pushed? trump ran away like the fucking coward he is.

Dave B · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Make america safe again. How can you vote for someone who has less ability then a 2nd grader? How is he supposed to know of threats like 911?Bush didn't read the briefing for a whole month in august 2001 then we were attacked. I thought republicans were supposed to scared?

Trevor Johnson · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

His minions refuse to understand or believe   the man cannot read ! He is a functional illiterate . He has managed to get by his whole life by bullying and being rich .

Nx Doyle · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

I realised yesterday how the media should handle the day to day failures of trump, as both president and human. It was during one of those loud cable news segments where a whole bunch of talking heads were picking apart the latest bucket of shit that had gushed out of the president's face hole.

Treat him like the villain in a superhero story. I'm not a comic book guy, but I understand enough of the dynamic to know that when antagonists are referred to in the news, the reporters aren't concerning themselves with the little evils that are part of a bigger evil's day. They default to evil. As soon as The Joker or Lex Luthor or whoever is mentioned on the news, you can take it as read they are evil and they will do evil things. Same should apply to trump. Telling me he supports abusers, mocks the disabled or adores himself…not news. If he shot someone in the head or fucked a kitten, why would anyone be surprised to the point of it being newsworthy?

Jesus Jimenez Hernandez · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

He's mentally retarded?

axion · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

So the briefings should be north korea bad china bad russia bad. US ally list any nation that approves of israel embassy move

Sandy Diakos · February 13, 2018 at 3:05 pm

It’s better that Donny 2 scoops doesn’t get any intel period,he will just give it to Putin
