'Trump sounds like the mad king from Game of Thrones' -- not the president: National security analyst

On Monday, CNN national security analyst Samantha Vinograd slammed President Donald Trump over his response to special counsel Robert Mueller's report.


The nearly 400-page report reveals that White House aides from past to present have refused to follow Trump's orders in fear it would put Americans in harm's way.

While talking to reporters, Trump denied this claim.

"Nobody disobeys my orders," Trump said on the South Lawn.

"It's factually untrue, according to the Mueller report, the Woodward book and other reporting, "Vinograd told CNN host Wolf Blitzer. "This sounds like something I would expect to hear on an episode of 'Game of Thrones' from the mad king or queen, but not the democratically elected president."

She added, "We have staff waging a silent mutiny against President Trump because they do not feel comfortable sharing the legality of a matter directly with him or saying he has a bad idea."

"The president should have a team that implements his guidance, including his executive orders. The United States should have White House staff that's not working hours in the day, managing the president's worst impulses, but instead, the American people deserve to have a team that's all hands on deck, actually managing our national security," she said.
