Former CIA Director Brennan Calls Trump “Disgraced Demagogue” Over McCabe Firing
Former Obama Administration officials are slamming President Trump over the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Former CIA Director John Brennan slammed President Trump in a Tweet calling the president “a disgraced demagogue.”
When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you. https://t.co/uKppoDbduj

Brennan attacked President Trump’s character earlier this month during an interview on MSNBC calling the president “unstable, inept, inexperienced, and also unethical.”
Newsweek called Brennan’s comments “an extraordinary attack.”
Brennan was not the only former Obama team member to comment on Twitter.
Former U.N. Ambassador under Obama Samantha Power added fuel to Brennan’s fire by commenting on the former CIA Director’s Tweet:
Not a good idea to piss off John Brennan. https://t.co/VLg94OLL2R

Following push back on her comments on social media Powers tried to clarify her earlier comment in another Tweet.
Ben Rhodes, who worked in the Obama White House, also criticized President Trump.
Responding to the President Trump’s call to end the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Rhodes criticized President Trump and the Republican Party.
The next few months will demonstrate whether America is governed by the rule of law or the rule of a demagogue enabled by a corrupted political party. https://t.co/woaXxoNQ3t

One has to wonder why the Obama team is making so many comments about the firing of McCabe.
Since nothing happens by accident in Washington D.C., perhaps the former Obama officials are most likely getting nervous about their possible roles in trying to undermine President Trump just after the election.
We now know what Brennan thinks of President Trump.
So the big question is did he act on those feelings while he was at the CIA?
