Sharyl Attkisson responds to Brennan’s shockingly inappropriate tweet: ‘This explains a lot …’

Author and journalist Sharyl Attkisson shared a scathing perspective on a rant by ex-CIA Director John Brennan.

Brennan encouraged “allies and friends” in a tweet on Sunday, calling Trump “a temporary aberration” whose impact on America would be short-lived.

Attkisson, an Emmy award winning investigative journalist, fired off a tweet of her own and added a rebuke in her hashtag.

Trump had criticized Trudeau in a tweet calling him “dishonest & weak” following the summit on Saturday where the president also refused to endorse a joint communique signed by the other G-7 countries. The Canadian leader had complained that the U.S. was hitting Canada with steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Brennan, who still refers to himself as a “nonpartisan American” on his Twitter bio, has been nothing short of hostile toward Trump. Fired FBI chief James Comey appeared to echo Brennan and did a tweet by Sen. John McCain, undermining the authority of the president in addressing America’s “allies.”

But Attkisson’s harsh take on Brennan and his tweet was welcomed on Twitter where users blasted Brennan as a “snake” and called out those slamming the president.
