Paul Nails Brennan for Trump Derangement Syndrome
"You have to realize John Brennan started his illustrious career by voting for the Communist Party."
As we’ve duly noted, President Donald Trump blundered in his Helsinki press conference Monday with Vladimir Putin. But, as we’ve also observed, the response of hyperventilating leftists infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome is way over the top. Such was the case with former CIA Director John Brennan.
“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan declared. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”
Well, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has come to the president’s defense. “It makes me wonder whether [Brennan] should be getting a government pension if he’s going to be disrespecting the commander-in-chief, calling the president treasonous,” Paul responded. “That’s about as overtop as you can imagine.”
Context matters, too. “You have to realize John Brennan started his illustrious career by voting for the Communist Party. … That’s who he wanted to win the presidency back in the ‘70s,” Paul said. “When he came to be head of the CIA, I filibustered him because I thought he was bad news from the very beginning.”
“I think John Brennan is completely unhinged,” Paul argued. In fact, he added, Brennan is “the most biased, bigoted, over-the-top, hyperbolic sort of unhinged director of the CIA we’ve ever had.” And, Paul continued, as CIA chief, Brennan was “one of the most powerful people in the world who has the ability to destroy anybody in the world and gain information on anything you do.” He wondered “what other things he could possibly have been doing with that power.”
As far as the overall reaction, Paul asserted, “It’s all about partisan politics now. This is truly the Trump Derangement Syndrome that motivates all of this.” Paul is spot on.
