Donald Trump and Marla Maples

In 1990, famed gossip columnist Liz Smith had been asking Donald Trump for two years to comment on the “other woman” in his life, only to be stonewalled each time about the identity of Marla Maples. After the story broke, Maples spent three weeks in Guatemala hiding out under an assumed name and a red wig simply to avoid the press firestorm.

Two years of keeping a secret about the bombshell blonde with whom he was sleeping.

Three weeks of hiding said mistress in another country using an alias and a disguise.

And within five months of assuming office Donald Trump is sharing information about a valuable source within the ISIS network with two Russian officials to whom he claims not to owe any special allegiances. It’s not that Donald Trump can’t keep a secret. It’s that he doesn’t care to keep the secret if he doesn’t see how it affects his day-to-day life and satisfaction.

Now remember that this is how he views national security intelligence.
