It’s one thing to congratulate Vladimir Putin on his election win.

Still another to go against the wishes of your advisers, even a hand-written note card that read DO NOT CONGRATULATE.

But none of that matters to the White House.  They’re really mad because someone leaked it and now we know the truth.  America should say “thank you” to the leaker, whoever you are.

From CNN:

  • “White House chief of staff John Kelly also is furious that a confidential presidential briefing became public knowledge, a White House official said, and intends to address the matter Wednesday as aides try to figure out who disclosed the warning.”
  • “Another White House official didn’t dispute to CNN Tuesday the language on the notes provided by members of Trump’s National Security Council but said Trump didn’t read or see the notecard. The official added that Trump often disregards advice in calls with foreign leaders.”
