Twitter Explodes Over Donald Trump’s Russian #Blabbergate

Twitter went nuts after The Washington Post reported that Donald Trump discussed classified information about terrorism threats from ISIS with Russian officials in the Oval Office last week ? while he barred American journalists from the meeting.

Aghast and angry responses at #Blabbergate#TrumpLeaks and #Russia ranged from snipes about the president?s cluelessness to the very negative effect this could have on his presidency (some tweets featured images of the Titanic going down). 

Other tweeters gleefully made fun of Trump?s outrage at … leakers and at Hillary Clinton?s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, an issue that Trump made much ado about during his campaign.

Several comments were darker, with suspicions that any leaks could be a sign of deliberate collusion between Trump and the Kremlin and not merely the loose lips of someone inexperienced in politics and national security.

Tweets also blasted the Republican Party for failing to rein in its leader.
