Another tantrum from the toddler-in-chief.
Courtesy of TPM:
The White House abruptly canceled President Donald Trump’s daily intelligence briefing with his chiefs Wednesday, a day after CIA Director Gina Haspel and DNI Dan Coats gave Congress a yearly threat assessment during which they contradicted many of Trump’s favorite talking points.
According to a Thursday Daily Beast report, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders gave no specific reason as to why the briefing was canceled: “It was moved,” she said.
After spending Wednesday criticizing his own intelligence officers on Twitter, Trump changed his stance and began blaming the media for making it “appear” that the chiefs undermined many of his claims.
That meeting was canceled on Wednesday, and then yesterday this happened:
….I would suggest you read the COMPLETE testimony from Tuesday. A false narrative is so bad for our Country. I value our intelligence community. Happily, we had a very good meeting, and we are all on the same page!

So what do we think?
Did those Intelligence chiefs actually tell Trump that they had been misrepresented, even though there is a video which contradicts that, or did Trump demand that they never undermine him in public again and then release this bullshit version of their meeting and essentially dare them to refute it?
Once again, folks, this is why you do not put crazy people in positions of power.
