Donald Trump just threw more gasoline onto the public fire surrounding the ongoing investigation into his campaign’s potential ties with Russia, as The Washington Post reported Monday that he disclosed highly classified intelligence to Russia’s foreign minister during a White House visit.
According to officials who spoke with the Post, the information Trump leaked was related to a source who provided vital intel to the inner workings of ISIS, which was so sensitive that it was withheld from some U.S. officials and allies.
Trump’s actions have given his liberal critics in Hollywood and beyond almost daily material to attack him with, especially in the wake of last week’s surprise firing of FBI Director James Comey. Monday was no different, as celebrities and media figures trashed the president as “a danger to democracy and the world.”
See some of the outraged tweets below.
DT is a complete and utter moron. He shares highly classified info with Russians. He is a danger to democracy and the world. #Impeach

Dear Republican Party: just writing to ask how your tolerance for extreme scandal in exchange for tax cuts is going. https://t.co/rh2R8IUFsY

How to spy:
Literally anyone: “I bet your intel isn’t great.”
Trump: “Wrong! I just learned today that [classified secret].”
