I think the following is probably true. And it’s why he shouldn’t be president.
But several advisers and others close to Trump said they wouldn’t be surprised if Trump gave information he shouldn’t have. One adviser who often speaks to the president said the conversation was likely freewheeling in the Oval Office, and he probably wanted to impress the officials. “He doesn’t really know any boundaries. He doesn’t think in those terms,” this adviser said. “He doesn’t sometimes realize the implications of what he’s saying. I don’t think it was his intention in any way to share any classified information. He wouldn’t want to do that.”

Three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, local leaders say. Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told The Times of London the militants were hiding on the edge of a field about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk when the boars overwhelmed them Sunday.

What a fucking disaster. Thank you, House Republicans, for saving us from this.

Yep. The bill failed because President Toot Toot the Truck Driver doesn’t know or care about any of this.
Paul Ryan deserves a ton of blame too. The bill was shit and the idea that this is the House Freedom Caucus’s fault is absurd. HFC is being blamed for making the naive mistake of assuming the GOP wanted to do what they’ve been promising for seven years.
These people are so incredibly brave.
