We know, we know, the president has the right to declassify anything he wants, but good grief, what doesn’t he understand about “You just leaked our intel gathering capabilities, you damned moron!”?

President Trump early Tuesday shared a report on North Korean cruise missiles based on information from anonymous sources  [Editors’ note: read “CLASSIFIED anonymous sources”]  amid his administration’s crackdown on leaks.

The president in a tweet shared an article from “Fox & Friends” that says U.S. spy agencies “detected the rogue communist regime loading two anti-ship cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country’s east coast just days ago.”

The report cites anonymous sources in the intelligence community [Editors’ note: that’s called “burying the lede”] , a practice that Trump often criticizes.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced last week that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is considering stricter measures to prevent leaks.

Memo to Sessions: there is this thing called an “impeachment referral,” y’know…

Memo to FOX and Fiends: you really, really need to think of ways to make it more obvious that you’d love to see the former game show host transformed into a “popular wartime preznit.” You’re being way too damn subtle!

‘Nuff said.
