Donald Trump claims he does not need all of those security briefings like past presidents because, "I'm, like, a smart person."

Courtesy of The Hill: 

Trump suggested during the interview it isn't necessary for him to receive the presidential briefings daily. 

"I'm, like, a smart person," the president-elect said during the interview. 

"I don't have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years. Could be eight years — but eight years. I don't need that."

You know anybody who constantly has to say that they are a smart person, is typically NOT a smart person.

President Obama, now there is an extremely intelligent man.

And also a man who accepts daily security briefings as a necessary and important part of his job in protecting the American people.

Of course unlike Donald Trump, our current president trusts the information provided by the national security folks, while Trump rejects it since much of it would undoubtedly conflict with information he receives from his more trusted "information" source, Alex Jones.

Trump also states in the interview that Mike Pence IS receiving frequent briefings.

Which I guess is to be expected since clearly HE is the guy who will be running the country while Donald Trump secretly runs his businesses and oversees his TV show.

I wonder how long it will take all of this to finally break through that conservative bubble and start to really bother some of the idiots that voted for this guy?

Hell considering their lack of cognitive thinking skills and allergic reaction to the facts this might not bother them until a year or two into the next world war.

Update: The only thing that would make Trump's response more pathetic is if he had criticized the President for skipping intelligence briefings in the past.

So you know what's coming right?
That of course was based on a bullshit report by a conservative group founded by....wait for it.....Stephen Bannon.

I swear you cannot even make this stuff up.

    Trump is such a fucking idiot and nothing more than ego driven. He has no clue how stupid he is and comes across as! Deplorable as they come and someone who should never be allowed to take the oath of office for potus! Plus, he should be impeached immediately IF he is actually allowed to take the oath of office!

    He's the very WORST that could be allowed to represent America. I suspect he'll not last long - either through death or impeachment! I hope we never hear from the asshole again!

    Boy oh boy, do we ever need a President Hillary Clinton!

    PENSE WILL BE THE MOST POWERFUL VICE PRESIDENT EVER!

    Because Pense goes to about every security briefing

    Will be in charge of Foreign and Domestic policies

    Will be in charge of Washington DC when the president goes home to New York every day after 5pm and on weekends

    Trump will do rallies, go to stadiums to see his face on the big screen, do press conferences and take credit for Pense's and the cabinets work.

    Remember this, Trump wanted Kasich to be the most powerful vice-president in history. Kasich would be in charge of foreign and domestic policies and Trump would be in charge of Making America Great (probably holding Victory rallies)

      Before you get so outraged over him you should at least realize his name is spelled Pence, not Pense, which in itself is a contradiction in terms as "pense" is the root for the word "pensive" which means thoughtful, which Pence is anything but.

    This guy isn't nuts when he says this. He's dirty. He's corrupt.

    Man, and he thinks he can talk this way and yet expect protection. He has no sense of duty. He will be protected no matter how much he trashes his protectors. Vile piece of scum would never be able to do the same. Heck, I bet everything I own that if some emergency happened and he were with Barron, Trump would just run away and leave Barron to fend for himself.

    When it comes down to it, the president is the decider. The weight of responsibility is on him. To not do the right thing and be as involved as possible removes himself from this and puts more weight on the shoulders of those who are already doing their own jobs.

    What pres doesn't want to hear things directly and not have it given to him by way of yet another secondary type of source? He thinks getting info from Pence is going to be enough, and much of what he will get will already be secondary.

    A real pres wants as much info as possible and from the least amount of six degrees of separation as possible. And he wants to hear all the nuances and subtleties and the very words of the agencies and the body language of those providing the info. He has no interest in any of that. The job is just so simple to him.

      Well first off, he would not understand the briefings, since he does not know where these countries are unless he has a hotel there with his name on it. Second, he is too busy getting his ugly mug on TV, and running his TV show and other businesses. Thirdly, he does not want to be president, he just wants the title, to impress rich people who can invest in his properties.

Trump has greeted a parade of other officials auditioning for Cabinet positions, but also met with Indian business partners, television news anchors and figures in the entertainment industry.

And where was Hillary? I thought she had agreed that a recount was the right thing. Why is no one fighting for a MI recount?

    And where were the people/lawyers who usually watch recounts and voting who do it a lot and know what to do and how to handle the assholes trying to stop the recount? At this article, it sounds like David and Goliath during the MI recount.

    Where the hell was everybody????

    And what about Florida? What happened to that?

    My reaction to anything that Trump says or tweets is always the same - a desire to bang my head against the nearest wall. The thought of having this man as president for the next four years is simply unfathomable because he behaves like a spoiled four-year old child. So Trump doesn't need briefings because he's "smart." A smart person, like President Obama, welcomes the information that he can gather from others and uses that information when drawing his own conclusions. That is why we've been in such capable hands for the last eight years! Fox News notwithstanding.
