Questionable Intelligence

gatheredintelligence1

There have been some reporters, namely Rachel Maddow, who have speculated that Donald Trump may be getting his “intelligence” from an unusual source.  And I’m not talking about Fox News.  He’s been frequently talking about odd tactics and discoveries regarding undocumented immigrants, including finding prayer rugs, and women having their mouths duct taped shut so that they couldn’t breath.  Several news outlets have attempted to find witnesses or victims to these discoveries to no avail.  Then people started to notice it sounded suspiciously similar to a plot to a movie called Sicario: Day of the Soldado.  Seriously, several of Trump’s claims come from and only make sense within the context of this movie plot.  So, getting everything straight, Trump is actively conflating movie plots and real, actionable intelligence.  If it were any other president, ANY OTHER president, it would be a ludicrous suggestion, but for Trump it just feels…remarkably normal.
