Obama warns Trump on intelligence briefings: Without them 'you're flying blind'

Obama warns Trump Addressing the concerns related to skipping intelligence briefings, Donald Trump recently told Chris Wallace of 'Fox News Sunday,' in part, "I'm, like, a smart person. I don't have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years...I don't need that. But I do say, 'If something should change, let us know.'"

In an apparent reference to Trump's comments, on Monday night, President Obama shared his own views on intelligence briefings during an interview with Trevor Noah of Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show.'on intelligence briefings: Without them 'you're flying blind'

Obama said, "It doesn't matter how smart you are. You have to have the best information possible to make the best decisions possible."

He continued, "And my experience with our intelligence agencies is that they are not perfect. They would be the first to acknowledge that."

Obama added, "But they are full of extraordinarily hard-working, patriotic and knowledgeable experts, and if you are not getting their perspective, their detailed perspective, then you are flying blind."

Witchy  has her say :
Why are conservatism and blind stupidity a common denominator?????
ISIS began in 2004 when Al Qaeda entered the Iraq war....4 years before Obama was elected.  People are entitled to their opinion but get your facts straight.  We've been in Iraq now over 13 years...more than twice as long as it took us to win WW II.  Bush had no postwar reconstruction plan for Iraq...and now the country is under Iranian influence.  ISIS is the blow back from Bush's blunder dismantling the Iraqi  army and the Baathe party.  The so-called surge was simply meant to buy time for Bush to leave .
Is  this too many facts for republicans to digest, they can do one every six months... period ?  In between time, they'll kneel before their hero, satisfy his needs while he pats them on the head. Good job destroying  the country. Better learn  Russian and soon. 


  1. Bravo!!
    You strapped on your gun and let them have it. I love it when Witchy has her say. Trump is so arrogant, he thinks he knows everything already. I can't believe that guy. He defies all logic. Every country in the world depends on their intelligence agencies.
    Great article and I love Trevor (he's a cutie as well as smart as a whip)
    Love PIC

  2. Thank you !!
    I get so angry when people talk about things they know nothing about .
    As I said get the facts straight when you what to argue a point .
    I asked Dad why do tRUMP think he has all the answers , why can't people take a look outside the box and see the Orange One for what he is .
    Every person that is ahead of a corporation or even a housewife needs some input at times . My man says to be a success you have to have people to advise you in things , because there are all fazes you will encounter . He said his daddy made it where he is to today because he had good people to advise him . No one can make it to the top and be a success without good people in their corner .
    We watch Trevor every night , love him .
    Love PIC

    PS: Dad won't let me see his post , he said it's just what people need for the holidays .

  3. I can't wait to see his post. He is setting an example for you and I. I guess we should do something Christmasy. Like put an xmas tree in the sidebar ... or Trump in a Santa hat groping an elf...HA!
    Luv ya

  4. Dad is always up to something .
    I told him what you said ... he said Trump in drag , winking his eye would be nice , people would laugh so hard the will pee on themselves Hahahaha!!1
    Love you .
