McMaster Mocked Trump's Intelligence In a Private Dinner

21 November 2017

And yet, according to sources, Catz was so alarmed by the tenor of McMaster's comments about President Trump and Israel that she confided her concerns in several administration officials, as well as Adelson.

Trump's National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster trashed Trump at a private dinner and said that the President Of The United States is as smart as a kindergartner.

Five sources with knowledge of the conversation told BuzzFeed News that during a July dinner with Oracle CEO Safra Catz, McMaster "dismissed the president variously as an "idiot" and a "dope" with the intelligence of a 'kindergartner, '" according to the report.

"Those false comments represent the diametric opposite of General McMaster's actual views", Anton told BuzzFeed News. Another attendee, Oracle lobbyist Ken Glueck, also denied the report, saying 'none of the statements attributed to General McMaster were said'.

McMaster's alleged comments came during a July dinner with Oracle C.E.O.

Additionally, a sixth source stated that this was not a one time thing, alleging that McMaster often derides Trump's intelligence level in private, suggesting that he does not have the mental acumen to understand matters pertaining to National Security Council. According to Axios, GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson got wind of what was discussed at that dinner, and subsequently concluded that McMaster wasn't sufficiently pro-Israel and should thus be removed from the Trump administration.

While we wait for Trump's forthcoming tweetstorm and/or McMaster's humiliating mea culpa, some folks on Twitter have called into the question the credibility of the report's sourcing, noting a unusual discrepancy with the story. "It's like they're preparing to deal with a child", a source told the magazine.

Over the course of the dinner, McMaster reportedly bashed, in no particular order, Defense Secretary James Mattis; State Secretary Rex Tillerson; former White House political advisor Steve Bannon; and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner-of Kushner, BuzzFeed reports, "McMaster said he had no business being in the White House and should not be involved in national security issues".

"McMaster has made it a habit to publicly disrespect the president, and his contempt for Donald Trump disqualifies him from future service", he said.

Catz served on Trump's transition team and was born in Israel.
