Rachel Maddow's comparison of Donald Trump to Lyndon LaRouche, Ross Perot and Pat Buchanan fabulously exposed how weak and ridiculous the Republican Party is.

But she also let something else slip toward the end of the segment, when she pointed out that Donald Trump is now entitled to receive classified CIA briefings.

Let that sink in. How long do you think it will be before Trump drops something in public that's classified information? He has neither the restraint nor the temperament to be getting those briefings.

But this is now the presumptive Republican nominee. They've finally gone and done it.

Can you help us out?
