Why we shouldn't put children in the White House

When it came time for Donald Trump to be given his first intelligence briefing many of us shuddered at the thought because he was so obviously childish that the chances were good that he would blurt something out that could severely harm the country or the world.  Well, yesterday he did just that - to his best buddies, the hostile foreign power Russia.  Not because he is an evil traitor, but because he is a 9 year old who needs to brag about how important he is.  Here is the quote:

"In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” the president said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange"

So he gave them a piece of intelligence that can easily be used by the Russians to uncover a very highly guarded source providing intel on Isis - who is likely now in danger for his or her life.  What foreign intelligence will now share highly sensitive intel with the U.S.?  What does our intelligence service share or withhold from him?

God help us all.
