Former CIA Director Blasts Trump: It’s Government by the ‘Worst People’ and a ‘Nightmare’

Former CIA Director John Brennan unloaded on President Trump on Friday for his attacks on former FBI Director James Comey.

He also introduced people to a word they may have been unfamiliar with before: “kakistocracy”: it refers to rule by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens—a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.

On Friday, Trump tweeted:

James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst “botch jobs” of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!

Brennan, who was CIA Director under President Obama from 2013 through 2017, responded this way:

Your kakistocracy is collapsing after its lamentable journey. As the greatest Nation history has known, we have the opportunity to emerge from this nightmare stronger & more committed to ensuring a better life for all Americans, including those you have so tragically deceived.

Trump’s attack on Comey came after multiple media outlets reported on excerpts of Comey’s new book, A Higher Loyalty. Comey writes in the book that Trump is “untethered to truth” and compared him to a mob boss.

Brennan has been a regular critic of Trump, becoming more pronounced in the last few months. Here are some of his recent comments:
