GOP senator: Leaking Trumps alleged Oval Office comments undermines trust

Source: The Hill

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) said on Friday that the leaking of President Trump's comments calling Haiti and African nations "shithole countries" during an Oval Office Meeting only works to undermine trust.

"It undermines trust going forward. Whatever was or was not said, if you disagree with what the fellow or gal says disagree with them publicly then but to go out and kind of report it is going to undermine trust," Cassidy said on the Fox News Channel.

"Not [just] for this issue, but for future issues, it's just a rule of human contact, whether it's a marriage, a friendship or a political negotiation," he added.

Cassidy's comments come after The Washington Post reported Trump's comments on Thursday.

I think Trump undermined trust long time ago.

They just don't get the fact that if he said it, he believes it. And that is the problem. That is his ideology.

Whoever is leaking is desperately trying to underscore what we all know -- that the pResident is bat-shit crazy.

went behind President Obama's back and had his friends sign that letter to Tehran, while the President was in negotiations? Was that not undermining the trust? How dumb do these gop members think we are? After all the dirty tricks they pulled on the honorable President Obama, they defend this orange shitgibbon? Cotton, or Tehran Tom as he was called, is considering running for the WH. Why not, he is dumb just as the gop likes their presidents.

35. Gal? Really?

Do none of these Mother Fuckers ever work for large companies? As a southern male over 50 I sometimes screw up and talk about the girls on my team. Not often but it happens. I always stop, apologize, and say of course I meant to say ladies or women. I canít help the times I was raised but can grow.

But Gals? Even when I was 25 I would not have used that language. And if someone called my very accomplished, 50 something year old wife a Ďgalí in a professional environment, she would be in line behind me to have words with them.

Now as a southern family we may speak more causally in personal settings, but professionalism means something.

39. Hey Cassidy, do you fully realize that 6,000 military and other personnel are in Africa for example

Do you realize Cassidy, what your racist, bigoted, sexual predator president said put those lives in danger............ .

And for you to say what you said, your sexual predator president has used the public format to insult people through out his life.......................and as for trust, he stiffed mom and pops out of money owed, he set up a sham university, he has attacked people of color, the list goes on and on, and finally he is a traitor.

And just for giggles senator what has your president done to protect the democracy, that he doesn't give a shit about, for the next attack by a foreign power(s ) in this next election, you do realize, that Fancy Bear, has again made paperwork to appear that it came from the senate, maybe you should have seen the reporting on what Rachel Maddow said on this matter tonight-----your president is dangerous, you own him , and he owns you and your party.................

And as for "Senator" Durbin, I am proud that he explained what happened, you presently have both speakers of your party, are a disgrace, one hasn't said a word, the other the ayn rand jerk, is only worried about his agenda and not the country, he did a two step of BS today.....................and I cannot wait for him to be voted out of office, he is a failure a big F


And November 2018 cannot get here fast enough, ------------------the rule of law is at stake

Maybe they'll be less focused on satiating their racism and think about their country's reputation on this planet. It's not likely of course, that they will do so, but one can always hope.
