Author and journalist Sharyl Attkisson shared a scathing perspective on a rant by ex-CIA Director John Brennan.
The former Obama administration CIA director took a shot at President Trump after he blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau following the G-7 summit.
Brennan encouraged “allies and friends” in a tweet on Sunday, calling Trump “a temporary aberration” whose impact on America would be short-lived.
Your wrong-headed protectionist policies & antics are damaging our global standing as well as our national interests. Your worldview does not represent American ideals. To allies & friends: Be patient, Mr. Trump is a temporary aberration. The America you once knew will return. https://t.co/7qHthq2GuT

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.”
Our national security relationship with Canada is vital and saves American lives. It was built over generations and is bigger than any person or dispute. This too shall pass. pic.twitter.com/TTOPUf2kjB

To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.

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.
Unfathomable. It explains ALOT.

I don’t remember the senior officials of any outgoing Administration ever being so blatantly partisan & negative with regard to the Admin that replaced them. Granted social media has enabled more, but still. Just another reason my overall opinion of Obama diminishes over time.

Brennan and McCain do NOT speak for US!

Coming from the former CIA Chief thqt sounds a lot like a telegraphed threat that Brennan has knowledge of……maybe the #SecretService should have a little talk with him….

“The America you once knew will return”But it is NOT Obama’s America. Americans rejected his vision of what America should be. It’s truly a disgrace that a top government Intel official is acting like a political hack. It explains indeed the soft coup led by this man agnst Trump.
