Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss reports that President Trump revealed very sensitive intelligence during his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. They also get a kick out of a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, alleging staffers weren’t paid the current minimum wage for their work in 2016. And they have some fun with the news that a published photo of President Trump’s bodyguard revealed the personal cell phone number of Defense Sec. James Mattis.

    Jim and Greg – First, thanks for the laughs even in the midst of the tragedy and craziness of our modern political reality. Second, a thought about the “Trump Considering ‘X'” headlines and stories. This strikes me as an artifact of his background in business and management. Often, as a manager you want people to throw out ideas not only so you can evaluate the merits of the idea, but to A) understand what is trickling around in their minds and B) let them feel heard. It is very easy for a manager, business owner, etc. to say “Let me think on that.” or “Let me consider that.” as a way to say “no” without outright saying no. It’s a way of keeping options open, ideas flowing, and an underling affirmed. Sometimes you come back with a “thanks, but no thanks”, sometimes those ideas are back-burnered until feasible.

    Anyway, keep up the good work gentlemen.
