Trump insists he's on same page as intel chiefs after insulting them

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump claimed Thursday that his intelligence chiefs, including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Gina Haspel, told him that they were misquoted when they publicly contradicted him during public on-camera testimony.

He made the claim a day after he tweeted that "Intelligence should go back to school!"

"They said they were totally misquoted and totally taken out of context," Trump said when asked by CNN if he raised the testimony with Coats and Haspel during his daily briefing on Thursday.

"They said it was fake news," Trump said.

2. No way any of them called it fake news.

The press needs to get them on the record about this obvious lie by rump.

4. Huh?

"How did you pull that silver dollar out of my ear?"

The late Harry Anderson (Night Court - Cheers) could have put him in a padded room for a month!
My GAWD, what a fool!

5. Here's what Trumpy did, IMO:

He DID meet with intel chiefs today. He told them he was going to make a public announcement and ordered them to keep their mouths shut. Then he got on the tube and tried to whitewash their Congressional testimony.
