According to reports, Trump has settled on Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn to serve as his National Security Advisor.

First General Flynn sat at Putin's table; now he's sitting at Trump's table and will likely soon join him in the Situation Room.

Jason Miller, the transition spokesman, was enthused about him, but cagey.

"No formal announcement yet for that position. Gen. Flynn met with the president-elect today. He has been a companion on the campaign trail quite a bit as we've seen over the past few months," he said in an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly.

"He'd be a fantastic addition, I'll let the president-elect make that decision. I'm a huge fan of Gen. Flynn," he added.

One thing is for sure. No longer will we need to fear an administration afraid to say "radical Islam" with General Flynn at the table. He's ready to utter that magic incantation and carry us all far away from harm.

Mark Cuban, on the other hand, should maybe watch out, since Flynn doesn't think of him as a legitimate person.

And then there's this, because Gen. Flynn loves white nationalists and the Twitter.

Oh, I feel so secure now.
