Or maybe we don't trust a guy like Clapper who lied under oath about spying
on the citizens he pledged to protect. Maybe the US intelligence
community is one of those symptoms...

Doctors can't cure many

Yeah yeah I know I've heard it all before, we've got to totally change
civilization from top to bottom; but guess what, that's not going to happen
in the next 3 1/2 years. But a nuclear war might.
has worked under all presidents from
John F. Kennedy through Barack Obama
and for almost 8 years was head of all the 17 intelligence agencies of
the USA, and he worries about Trump's access to the nuclear codes:
*“I really question his ability to be — his fitness to be — in this office.
In a fit of pique he decides to do something about Kim Jong Un, there’s
actually very little to stop him. The whole system is built to ensure
rapid response if necessary. So there’s very little in the way of controls
over exercising a nuclear option, which is pretty damn scary.”*
And if you're not as scared as James Clapper then you just don't
understand the situation.
