The Washington Post broke the story this week that President Donald Trump allegedly divulged classified information to Russian officials, with multiple news outlets corroborating the report with other sources.
National security adviser H.R. McMaster has since said that Trump’s comments were “appropriate” in the context of the conversation, insisting that the president’s decision to share information was part of Russia and America’s common goal to combat ISIS. He told reporters that Trump wasn’t aware of where the intelligence came from.
On Tuesday’s “Pat & Stu,” Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere weren’t sure what to believe but generally advised a healthy dose of skepticism and caution toward both the media and the Trump administration as more information is revealed.
“There’s no need to ask [Trump] to resign today,” Stu said. He added jokingly, “I don’t even need a reason to ask him to resign. … I asked on Jan 20 and I ask every day, usually silently in prayer.”
McMaster should definitely not be dismissed as a Trump sycophant like Kellyanne Conway or Sean Spicer, Stu asserted, suggesting people should take a “trust but verify” approach to McMaster’s comments.
