McMaster Made Fun Of Trump At Private Dinner

State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis U.S. President Donald Trump meets with members of his cabinet at the White House in Washington U.S

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster used some colorful words to describe President Donald Trump during a private dinner with a tech CEO, five sources have told Buzzfeed News. These sources told BuzzFeed that McMaster called his boss an "idiot", a "dope" and said Trump had the intelligence of a "kindergartner".

Another source wasn't aware of remarks made at that particular event, but did confirm that McMaster has openly dunked his boss's inability to understand what the National Security Council actually does. That decision stemmed, multiple sources tell BuzzFeed News, from comments McMaster made to Catz praising President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran and describing Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory as a major problem.

Oracle also vehemently denied that McMaster made any such remarks.

BuzzFeed's sources said Catz, who is rumored to be in line for a job in the Trump administration, recounted McMaster's alleged comments directly to them.

"None of the statements attributed to General McMaster were said", Oracle senior VP for government affairs Ken Glueck told BuzzFeed News.

Glueck, however, denied that Oracle issued its response under pressure from the White House: "Ridiculous".

Some pro-Trump media outlets have cast McMaster as a "globalist", while Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson reportedly confided in his allies that he believes McMaster is "anti-Israel". Last year, she joined Trump's transition team ahead of his inauguration as president.

The BuzzFeed report also said that McMaster spoke ill of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser.

While Catz hasn't wound up in any of these jobs, Oracle has stayed closer to the Trump administration than numerous other high-profile tech giants.

McMaster has always been a polarizing figure for some of Trump's most ardent supporters.

McMaster's critical comments would not be the first delivered in private by a Trump cabinet member.
