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.”

‘Not true’: Manic GOPer Mark Meadows shut down by CNN’s Bash for repeating lie about Ukraine
A fifteen-minute CNN interview with Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) wound down to an abrupt end on Sunday morning as the "State of the Union" host Dana Bash cut off the Trump defender's insistence there was no quid pro quo offer from the president to Ukraine's leadership, with the CNN host telling the GOP lawmaker, "That's not true. I don't want to debate about it."
In an interview where Meadows continued to rage about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter, Bash finally brought up Trump's phone call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that led to the impeachment inquiry.
Discussing the call where Trump asked for a favor, Meadows pushed back after she said Trump, "Allegedly held up aid and he said it in this phone call."
