    Do you think the Intelligence Briefing Committee told Donald Trump-that Obama is not doing his job?

    Trump said the Intelligence Briefing Committee indicated to him via 'body language' that President Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry do not follow their advice and they are doing a terrible job.
    Do you really believe the Intelligence Briefing Committee would do that as Trump said?

    If Obama isn't doing his job, the country would no longer function and consider the US is currently the global leader, US President play a even more unique role, many other President of other countries, don't have to do. (Although I know for a fact between 14th~17th century, China had the same executive government structure as modern US and the reason it was similar is because George Washington reference the then Chinese, to decide how the US executive branch of the government should be. Although it was recorded, some Chinese Emperor of the time, leave running the country to the Secretary of State and his Chief of Staff and the only thing he do is sign executive order, upon advice of Secretary of State and Chief of Staff, but I don't see any US President, not doing his job, otherwise he would be absent from politics.)

      I really don't think briefings include internal gossip to outsiders about any officials or anyone else in government.  Doubtful that they share any personal opinions of the sitting prez, good or bad.  No thinking person would believe they would.

      Amen, CR...which IMHO is merely further proof that politicians truly think the American voter is just as dumb as dirt. I'm so sick of us being insulted daily. Yes, there R the "uninformed" but THEY AREN'T THE ONES LISTENING!!  WE are!

    No, I don't. I saw the forum on TV last night. Trump did not substantiate anything he said, whereas Clinton gave detailed answers to each of the questions posed to her, including those that questioned her integrity and judgment.

    To me, Trump came off as very uneducated, unpolished, arrogant, and evasive. It's highly unlikely the Intelligence Briefing Committee would tell Trump - or anyone, for that matter - what he claimed. I'm not the most educated person when it comes to politics, but wouldn't that be considered a form of treason?

    Trump really proved himself to be a chump last night. I didn't want to vote for Hillary, but there's no way in hell I'd even think about putting Trump in office.

      Thank you Shauna, I saw the same thing but, wondered if anyone believed his BS about the Briefing. He implied he was told things that Hillary was not, that he personally is in the know, above everyone else. Blessings dear friend.

      Shyron, if anything, I'm sure they told him as little as possible.  The Mouth, you know?  Trump is playing to the racist, sexist, uninformed, GULLIBLE crowd, so of course he claims inside info.  Who else but the Gullible "muggles" would believe him?

      Au fait, thank you for the comment. This is to bring out how much Trump can be trusted to spill the beans should he be given a plate of them. And some people think we should hand him the presidency.

      Yes, I could but 250 characters does not allow for posting all that information. You need to do your own research and decide for yourself and not rely on others to do the research for you.

    Absolutely not. President Obama is their commander and chief and they highly respect him, because he listens to the people who are in the know. You can be sure that Trump wasn't told anything that would hurt our effort in the middle east. They all know how dumb he is and wouldn't hesitate to blab it to Putin. ( Since they are such friends ) Trump is such a liar!

      Ruby, you are absolutely right, no one in their right mind would indicated anything about our President to this evil man.  No one knows what trash he has already told Putin. Yes trump is a liar!
      Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Trump is a blue-ribbon blabber for sure.  I don't think anything sensitive was shared with him.  Most things are on a need to know basis, and until Trump becomes pres., he doesn't need to know, --  & likely never will need to know.

    OK....Let me understand this:   Trump said WHO did WHAT to indicate that who, who & who  do not do what??
    Shyron, Trump actually moved his lips & used his voice & words in public to say that~~~~ the Intelligence Briefing Committee "indicated to him via body language"  that Obama, Clinton & Kerry do not follow their advice.......??
    Do I BELIEVE the IBC would do this? (you want to know)
    Hmmm.  only if what this committee normally does with the candidates is go into a room and everyone plays a game of charades hosted by Intelligence Director, James Clapper..... & one of the categories is "Things that piss off the Intelligence Committee"   and Trump was the first to guess that they were indicating "via charades," that Obama, Hillary & Kerry are "doing a terrible job"....and Donald guessed that before the buzzer went off. 
    But don't forget, they still have to return tomorrow for the lightening round to see who really knows the answer!   Ahhhh and BTW, in a manner of speaking....."doing a terrible job" is a signature comment that Donald Trump uses repeatedly to reference whoever he's maligning at the moment.  Trust this, that is not a phrase used by anyone on the IBC and certainly NOT in reference to the POTUS.  (Jesus help me )
    No, Shyron, I wouldn't believe this for a moment.  What I do believe at this point is that as seriously adverse as I am to Hillary, Donald is becoming more and more unimpressive to me....by the hour!

      What does impress you Paula. You have one of two choices, make one. Otherwise, what is your point. That is why we have been in decline since the 70s, and bottomed in 2008, and now we skip along the bottom. More of the same or take a chance on Trump.

      Brad, do you gamble away your life savings on things you think you should "take a chance on"? How can you listen to Trump's thousands of lies and think, Yea, I'm voting for this clown because he is NOT OBAMA!

      Taking a chance is what we do anytime we vote. It's 'what' we base that chance on. Politics has always been a gamble (game.)  Where have U been Yoss? We can believe what we're voting 4 & then we shall see, right? only 2 choices. Brad's right make

    Hi Shyron E. Shenko! How's it going?

    It strikes me that in order to even begin to take Mr. Trump's assertion seriously, we would have to assume that his credibility is even with that of Mr. Kerry, Secretary Clinton, President Obama, and the "Intelligence Briefing Committee," which may or may not be the CIA, as I understand.

    Then, having established this "level playing field" of credibility, it would be appropriate to give credence to statements made by Mr. Trump, about any of the aforementioned entities.

    Do you follow me?

    There is one thing, in my mind, that leaves Mr. Trump severely handicapped in terms of credibility. We should never, ever, ever forget that it was Mr. Trump who, a few years back, tried to turn the Presidential election process into a W.W.E.-type circus by demanding to see President Obama's birth certificate.

    It's one thing to vehemently disagree with someone. Its one thing to strongly oppose someone else's political philosophy and policy positions; but it is quite another to demonstrate contempt for the office of the President of the United States of America itself.

    I recommend we file such assertions under Mr. Trump's W.W.E. Tricks.

    Also, (and help me out here) isn't Mr. Trump the one who put his foot in his mouth regarding soldiers caught by the enemy as POWs? Wasn't that him? And didn't he directly insult Senator John McCain? My memory's a bit fuzzy.

    And, let's really speculate and assume what he says is true! If Mr. Trump's assertion is true, then I would have a hard time trying to figure out who was acting more like an immature 13-year-old.

    Think about it. Suppose the Intelligence Briefers did signal Mr. Trump with body language, one would have to find that kind of unprofessionalism nothing less than stunning; and one would have to seriously wonder how "our side" managed to win the Cold War.

    That said, for Mr. Trump to actually tell us about it... well, one would have to find his propensity to gossip under such circumstances quite stunning. One would truly have to be concerned about the integrity and functionality, as well as the seriousness of American institutions.

      Benghazi credible, ISIL credible, Syria Credible, Iran Credible, N Korea Credible, pick one that is a positive. The new ISIL commander, the enemy, was trained by our state department in anti terrorism. Check it out, don't believe me.

      Benghazi - Hillary is not responsible, ISIL - same, Iran - same, N. Korea? - Trump's favorite dictator. Osama Bin Laden was trained by our state dept. WTF is your point, Brad? You're just a conspiracy theorist nut?

      brad, you are not answering the question, I want to know if anyone really believes that IBC would tell/indicate to Mr. Trump their thoughts or feelings as Mr. Trump said they did.
      No I do not believe you and I did my research!!

    The committee doesn't have to say that - many people already see it as obvious when the President and Ms. Clinton deny that Muslim fundamentalists shouting "Allah is greater" while killing non-Muslims per the Koran's commandments and the founder's example have anything to do with Islam.

      ms. wilhite, I did not ask a question about Muslim fundamentalist, the Koran or Islam.  Bet you just made this garbage up too.
