You don’t know, do you?
But I ask you, amid the reporting that President Trump shared some classified information with the Russians, do you think that over the course of eight years, that Barack Obama, who was dealing constantly in classified information, never ever ever ever shared anything of the sort with the Russian officials he met?
Now I agree, Trump is much more likely to go running off at the mouth. But is it possible Obama, whether accidentally or for a good reason, never gave the Russians classified info?
I doubt it. And how about Joe Biden? He has the same porous filter between brain and mouth that Trump does. Biden would discuss the joys of the Bahamas climate with a conference of Eskimos if given the chance.
No, there are two reasons why you never heard about Obama saying things he shouldn’t in meetings with foreign leaders.
- The press is now very interested in breaking negative stories about the president.
- Someone, and probably many people, in the government don’t like the president and are willing to leak classified information to undermine him.
The only time the press figured out Obama was saying something he shouldn’t to a Russian leader is when they happened to overhear it.
