Trump defends his dangerous disclosure

President Trump, in defensive mode, took to his twitter to explain and hit back at critics.   And, in doing so, he missed the point.  Here is what Trump's tweeted:

"As President, I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety.  Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS and terrorism."

To which Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, responded:

"Mr. President, this isn't about your 'rights,' but your responsibilities.   You could jeopardize our sources, relationships and security."

Turning to a comedian, here's Steve Colbert's advice:
"I want to say something directly to President Trump, if he's watching:
  You're a bad president.   Please resign."     
The crowd went wild.
