Regarding Trump's disaffection for security briefings:

From Politico:

The expectation is that Trump will prefer bullet points to paragraphs, and headlines to details. Said Priess: "I would ask the president-elect directly: In what format would you like it? We can brief it to you. We can write it for you. We can do interpretive dance if you want. Just tell us."

I had to laugh forehead-down on my desk at the scenario of Trump in the Oval like Jabba the Hutt commanding SEND IN THE DANCERS and a line of business suited men and women and percussionists running in and assuming Martha Graham poses as they wait for the music to start.
