White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders starting a press briefing by reading a statement from Trump on why he revoked has revoked former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance, saying current intelligence officials cannot rely on Brennan's credibility and objectivity. But we all know the real reason: He wasn't nice to Trump.
"Mr. Brennan has recently leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official with access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations, wild outbursts on the internet and television about this administration."
She goes on reading:
"Mr. Brennan’s lying and recent conduct characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary is wholly inconsistent with access to the nation’s most closely held secrets and facilities, the very aim of our adversaries which is to sow division and chaos."
Why yes, that is the aim of our adversaries.
So, the lying-est and most frenzied president in history actually put on paper that lying and frenzied commentary should disqualify someone from accessing the nation's secrets and facilities... Ha, okay.
How does she read that with a straight face?
