Former DNI Chief Clapper Questions Trump’s ‘Fitness’ to Be President


The former director of national intelligence, James Clapper, said Tuesday night on CNN that he now questions President Trump’s fitness for the executive office and worries about his access to the nuclear-launch codes, in an unprecedented critique of a commander in chief by a top intel official. Following a rally in Phoenix that Clapper called “downright scary and disturbing,” he said, “I really question his ability to be—his fitness to be—in this office, and I also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for it.”

Referring to Trump’s standoff with the North Korean regime, Clapper said he worried that if “in a fit of pique he decides to do something about Kim Jong Un, there’s actually very little to stop him,” adding “the whole system is built to ensure rapid response if necessary. So there’s very little in the way of controls over exercising a nuclear option, which is pretty damn scary.” Clapper went on to condemn Trump’s “behavior and divisiveness and complete intellectual, moral, and ethical void,” adding, “How much longer does the country have to, to borrow a phrase, endure this nightmare?” Read more at CNN.



  1. It is now crystal clear that Obama and his merry band of idiots like Clapper, Jeh Johnson, Rice, Clinton and all the rest of his clowns were not mentally stable. The fact that they can’t endure a real leader (vs. Obama) who represents what we American’s want only proves the point that the Obama team of loonies are just that, loonies who tried to destroy America but failed to complete their mission.

  2. President Trump has accomplished in his first 100 days more than Obama has in his 8 years and you’re questioning his fitness? If 85% of the American public would vote for him again, you’re questioning his fitness? Why didn’t you question Obama’s fitness? What did Obama do in his 8 years except for golfing and speeches. He was all talk no action. Zero accomplishment besides destroying America. Is it any wonder that the National Intelligence is so corrupt?

  3. “How much longer does the country have to, to borrow a phrase, endure this nightmare? ”
    Around the same amount of time that we had to endure you!

  4. I am sure Mr. Clapper would like to have a president who kisses everyones butt like the last president we had. Clapper would rather have a puppet who follows orders, reads speeches that are on teleprompters without personal ideas and apologizes to everyone if we go a little astray. I am not a Trump fan but, all this craziness started on someone elses watch and now this president must clean it up. I know they are angry Clinton didn’t win so they can carry out the rest of their plans, but someone had another idea.

  5. We voted for Donald Trump to be our president, Mr. Clapper, and you don’t have to clap if you don’t want to. But since you’re sounding off without being asked to, I’ll tell you something too. You belong to the biggest group of sore losers ever. And it comes from realizing deep down that the Clinton bandwagon was aways made up of a bunch of losers. Keep on stubbornly trying to change/ignore reality, an you will keep on being a pathetic lost case.

  6. James Clapper was fired after he lied under oath in Congress and now he’s taking revenge at President Trump.

    Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer criticized James Clapper over his interview he gave to CNN and said “James Clapper is an idiot”.

  7. Clapper is wrong. So wrong. I support Trump. I Support the movement to add Trump to Mt Rushmore this year.

  8. Clap for Clapper. He will have an American right to speak.

    Dare any jew above to think that a jew in the holocaust years would not want a friend like Clapper. He might have actually told the nazis where to go. Apparantly Trump just said Charlottesville.
