Former State Department official Tom Countryman blasted President Donald Trump’s lack of perspective on Friday when he lambasted the former Reality TV game show host for lashing out incoherently at North Korea and undermining the work done by diplomats to de-escalate tensions between the U.S. and North Korea.
Regarding Trump’s “thank you” to Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin on Thursday for expelling hundreds of U.S. diplomatic personnel, Countryman said, “When I first heard the president’s thank you message to President Putin yesterday, I thought, ‘This is not the most outrageous thing this president has said, but it is one of the most shameful things any American president has said.”
Countryman told CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin that Trump has consistently shown contempt for “patriotic public servants are doing their best to serve the United States.”
He went on to question the president’s priorities and the amount of time he spends on petty feuds rather than acting on behalf of the interests of the country.
Trump, Countryman said, “believes Rosie O’Donnell to be a bigger threat to the security of the United States than Vladimir Putin, just based on the amount of time that he devotes to criticism.”

Susan Rice tears into Trump for ‘brushing off information’ critical to troops’ ‘life and death’ because he can’t hear bad news
On CNN Wednesday, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice ripped President Donald Trump for ignoring intelligence on Russian bounties against American troops.
"My job was to brief the president, to bring to the president all that he needs to hear, not what he wants to hear," said Rice. "When I served President Obama, he would sometimes joke that I and others who brought bad news were the 'doomsday people,' but he always listened to what we had to say and he never conveyed the impression that news was too bad to be worthy of him hearing. You don't intimidate the messengers ... this president is derelict in his duty, brushing off information that is critical to the life and death of our service members and does so because he doesn't want to hear bad news."
