Coats was speaking with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell on stage, and on camera, when Mitchell informed the head of intelligence for the United States that the President of the United States had just announced he'd invited Sovie... err, Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House.
He also says he doesn't like Coats going to the "liberal enclave" in the first place. The Hill and the HarrisX polling company run the American Barometer poll.
To some degree, it is good to know what the president believes about the intelligence on Russian Federation.

A majority of 51 per cent don't approve of the relationship between Washington and Moscow, according to the poll.
But details of what Trump and Putin may have decided have not emerged.
At various times since then, Trump has said that the two leaders talked about Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election, stopping global terrorism, security for Israel, the need to curb a nuclear arms race between their countries, Moscow's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, cyberattacks, trade, Middle East peace, North Korea's nuclear weapons and more.
Perhaps it was this support from his party - 70 percent of Republicans approved of Trump's summit performance, according to a recent CBS poll - that led Trump to go back to what he has believed all along: that US intelligence can not be trusted.More news: USA pushes United Nations to maintain sanctions pressure on N Korea
"Trump falsely claimed that a dossier by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele "was responsible for starting" the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign". "I entered the meeting with the firm conviction that diplomacy and engagement is better than hostility and conflict".
The top USA intelligence official said on Saturday that he meant no disrespect to President Donald Trump in an interview discussing the summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Mr. Coats has been under scrutiny since he said he wished Mr. Trump had not met one-on-one with Mr. Putin and expressed dismay that he had publicly undermined US intelligence agencies.
The American Barometer poll found that a majority of Americans agree with Trump.More news: Trump says he asked Putin about Russia's election meddling, Putin again denies
"Also, we got along very well, which is a good thing, except for the Corrupt Media!" the President added in the same tweet, referring to himself and Putin.
