He’s the president. Get over it.
Yes, we should keep our doors open to “your tired, your poor, your huddled masses – yearning to breathe free.” But get a grip.
Lest we forget, we are a sovereign nation. Popular media and society at large, they forget.
The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

In addition to the meeting with the Israelis, it is likely that the CIA is also holding meetings with other allied countries with which it shares intelligence operations. And thus, the process of delegitimization of the new president chosen by the American people transcends U.S. borders and amounts to an international boycott against his position in office.
What is happening in the United States is surreal: Never before in American history has the CIA stood up to boycott a president-elect and contest the democratic process. Basically, they are doing at home what they have been doing in other countries for decades. From this point forward, America is at risk of never again being the same.
