John Brennan was Obama’s CIA director and is currently a deep state Obama loyalist trying to take down Donald Trump. Seeing as how he doesn’t actually work for the government anymore, the President revoked Brennan’s security clearance today. He doesn’t need it, unless he’s trying to use it to undermine the Trump administration or enrich himself with his contacts and access. Either way, Trump put an end to it and the left has completely freaked out.
First, here’s Brennan’s reaction to losing something he doesn’t need and isn’t entitled to:
This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent. https://t.co/TNzOxhP9ux

What a drama queen, huh? He doesn’t need security clearance to bad-mouth the President and if he does, he’s breaking the law by revealing state secrets.
From there, the collective leftist consciousness has decided that Trump is a dictator for stripping Brennan of his security clearance. Here’s John Kerry, another guy who should lose his security clearance, staring things off:
This is putting personal petty politics ahead of patriotism and national security, end of story. You expect this banana republic behavior in the kind of countries that the State Department warns Americans not to travel to, but not at home in the USA. https://t.co/5f0pVSuHnd

Didn’t John Kerry sell out the United States to Iran in an effort to make it look like Obama had accomplished something in his 8-year reign of uselessness?
Then of course liberal Resistance leader Meathead had to chime in with the threat posed to democracy in taking away the security clearance of a guy who no longer needs it:
The would be Autocrat strikes again. John Brennan is a patriot. Stripping the former CIA director of his security clearance should frighten all patriots. Before this mentally unstable fool completely destroys our Democracy & hands US over to Putin, Nov.6 VOTE!!!

After that, Brennan went on MSNBC to drive home the liberal talking points that him losing his security clearance is a threat to democracy and that Trump is a despot:
“I do believe that Mr. Trump decided to take this action, as he’s done with others, to try to intimidate and suppress any criticism of him or his administration. And revoking my security clearances is his way of trying to get back at me,” Brennan cried.
Boo hoo. Do you think he needs a hug? There’s not a lot of joy in that man’s face.
“But I must tell you that Mr. Trump’s dishonesty, his lack of integrity, his nastiness, mean spiritedness, the types of things that he has just tweeted out the past 72 hours, the terms that he uses, this is not what I think of an American president nor of America. We’re better than this. We have to be better than this. We have been a shining example to the world and Mr. Trump is letting this country down,” Brennan said.
So by calling Omarosa a “dog” Trump has destroyed America? How was this guy ever the head of the CIA? With logic like that he never should have had security clearance in the first place.
“I’ve seen this type of behavior and actions on the part of foreign tyrants and despots and autocrats for many many years during my CIA and national security career. I never thought I would see it in the United States,” said Brennan.
Okay, obviously the liberal overlords sent out a memo for the left to play up the idea that Trump is a tyrant and is destroying the country by revoking Brennan’s security clearance, because they are all saying the same thing.
Let me just counter by saying: when you quit McDonald’s you have to give back the uniform. Lighten up. This is nothing.
