Mandatory Trump Education Lesson 5

Listen Donnie

you said you would listen
to President Obama's counsel

so believe him
when he says

“It doesn’t matter
how smart you are.

You have to have
the best information possible
to make the best decisions possible.”

You get one intelligence briefing
per week. 

That's a start. 

Now it is possible
that you like sending out information
more than receiving it

and that you don't like hearing
that your companion Vladimir Putin

swayed not only voter opinion
but yours.

But given that your medium of choice
is by design brief

and that your missives
are presumably meant to be read
by their targets

you owe the rest of the world
the same courtesy.
