Yes, Trump is a security risk at so many levels. If he is not deliberately passing secrets to the Russians, he is at least doing it out of ignorance. Moreover every ship of state needs someone at the wheel. The Donald has no idea where the wheel is located and doesn’t care. All he cares about is saying crazy shit that makes stupid people cheer for him.

Luckily he is being relentlessly pulled into the meat grinder of the American judicial system. In the old days Trump was too small a fish fot it to take him on full bore. But now that he has moved up in class, he justifies its full treatment, and he is stunned to find out that he can’t bulldoze his way through the legal system as in the good old days — too, bad.
