Ex-CIA Dir. John Brennan breaks Twitter silence to call Trump a ‘narcissistic, vengeful autocrat’

Published

on

Former CIA Director John O. Brennan joined Twitter back in September but never used his account until Thursday and when he broke his silence, it was to slam President Donald Trump.

First, Brennan remembered the victims of the terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1998, but his next tweet was aimed squarely at the White House.

“Trump Admin threat to retaliate against nations that exercise sovereign right in UN to oppose US position on Jerusalem is beyond outrageous,” wrote Brennan, who was appointed by former President Barack Obama. “Shows @realDonaldTrump expects blind loyalty and subservience from everyone — qualities usually found in narcissistic, vengeful autocrats.”

Brennan said that he was concerned that the Trump 2016 campaign’s interactions with Russians had placed it on a “treasonous path” and has tried to get Republicans in Congress to openly denounce Russian interference in the 2016 election. They refused.

And in his July 13 column, Krugman points to recent GOP “opposition research” against Dr. Anthony Fauci as a prime example of the type of insanity that is making the U.S. #1 in COVID-19 infections.

Krugman opens his column by offering a “brief history of the past four months in America.” While health experts like Fauci have warned, “Don’t rush to reopen, this isn’t over,” Trump’s message has been “LIBERATE!” — and the response of COVID-19 is “Wheee!” And the boneheaded mentality of Trump officials, according to Krugman, has been “Here’s our opposition research on Anthony Fauci.”

Trump-loving network OAN caught only releasing polls favorable to the president — and ignoring bad ones

One America News, the Trump-loving network that President Donald Trump has pitched to his fans as an alternative to Fox News, has been caught red-handed only releasing polls it commissions if they happen to be good news for the president.

FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver on Tuesday found a strange discrepancy in new polls released by Gravis Marketing, which happens to be OAN's official pollster.

In particular, Silver noted that OAN only sponsored Gravis polls showing Trump holding leads in states such as North Carolina, Georgia, and Arizona -- while declining to sponsor new Gravis polls showing the president getting blown out in both Florida and Minnesota.
