Fresh off reports that he's going to be spending his spare time executive producing the new season of Celebrity Apprentice and also hasn't been receiving daily presidential intelligence briefings, Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Fox News to explain why he doesn't need them. It's because he's smart, you see, and the briefings are kind of boring, and also Mike Pence can get them instead, it's not like he's doing anything.

Trump talked with Fox News' Chris Wallace for an interview that will air later this afternoon. During the interview, the subject of Trump's apparent lack of interest in daily presidential intelligence briefings came up, and the President-elect said that while he's definitely engaged and interested, the briefings are just such a yawnfest:

"I'm, like, a smart person. I don't have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day," are, of course, the words any person who's devoted to his job would say. Not to worry though, because Trump also said that Mike Pence ("one of my very good decisions. He is terrific") and "my generals," who are also great, are getting briefings every day.

Not that it helps, or has ever helped, but Twitter was able to identify some past Trump tweets that suggest, shockingly, that Trump might be a little hypocritical on this issue :

Elsewhere in the interview, Trump made a word salad to explain why even if doesn't completely liquidate and sell his real estate interests, there's no conflict of interest and nothing suspicious could possibly come out of it:

So just to clarify, there are no conflicts of interest because the president can't have them, but don't worry if it looks like there are because Trump's not interested in making money. But if in the future he is, he can. But he won't, because his kids will be running his company. But they won't be making deals, they're just running the company.

If that doesn't make sense, maybe you're the dumb one, ever think of that?
