President Donald Trump continues to hammer members of the U.S. intelligence community.

The trend seemed to begin because of his frustration related to whether his campaign was working in tandem with Russia. But it popped in the headlines again when leaders like the director of national intelligence and the CIA director disagreed with the president’s claims about North Korea and ISIS, among others.

The Show heard from Stephen Coulthart, assistant professor of security studies at the University of Texas at El Paso, about how to teach students on the intelligence career track while the commander-in-chief frequently criticizes people in that field.

Arizona resident Paul Kinsinger, former member of the U.S. intelligence community, joined The Show as well.
