Quote of the Day: Undermining Security

From Rep. John Fleming (R–La.), calmly discussing his national security differences with the commander-in-chief:

Simply put, President Obama is disadvantaging the United States one step at a time and undermining this country’s national defense on purpose.

Italics his. Steve Benen calls this a “casual accusation of treason.” Gotta disagree, though. There doesn’t seem anything casual about it.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
