U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s got nothing on National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster. Sure, Tillerson has refused to deny he called Donald Trump a moron earlier this year, but reports now allege that McMaster has gone even further.
McMaster allegedly trashed the Moron-in-Chief over dinner with a high-powered Silicon Valley CEO this summer, saying Trump has the intelligence of a kindergartner and calling him a “dope” and an idiot.”
Over a July dinner with Oracle CEO Safra Catz — who has been mentioned as a candidate for several potential administration jobs — McMaster bluntly trashed his boss, said the sources, four of whom told BuzzFeed News they heard about the exchange directly from Catz. The top national security official dismissed the president variously as an “idiot” and a “dope” with the intelligence of a “kindergartner,” the sources said.
A sixth source who was not familiar with the details of the dinner told BuzzFeed News that McMaster had made similarly derogatory comments about Trump’s intelligence to him in private, including that the president lacked the necessary brainpower to understand the matters before the National Security Council.
Of course, Oracle and the Trump administration are denying any such comments were ever made. But it should be known that Oracle remains closer to the Trump administration than many other high-profile tech giants. The company has disclosed spending nearly $10 million in lobbying expenditures so far in 2017.
It gets better. McMaster didn’t just trash Trump during that dinner at the restaurant. Three of the sources said he also dissed Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, and Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. As far as McMaster saw it, the inexperienced Kushner had no business being involved in national security issues, let alone serving as a White House advisor.
News of the McMaster-Catz dinner was first reported by Axios when GOP mega-donor Sheldon Adelson allegedly accused McMaster of being anti-Israel. Long a target of pro-Trump media for mainstream positions on foreign policy, McMaster has been criticized for praising President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran and describing Israeli settlements in Palestine a problem. He also took a hit by the Trump clan for getting rid of the staff hired by Michael Flynn who preceded him in the NSA post.
