Former CIA Director and prominent Trump critic John Brennan took to Twitter this Tuesday to blast the president for his “corrosive impact” on the nation:
“It is impossible to overstate @realDonaldTrump’s corrosive impact on our political culture & national character. Rejection of his demagoguery, his lies, and the politics of fear espoused by McConnell & Graham is at hand. If you want to make a difference, vote!!!”

During a recent event held in the East Room of the White House, Trump claimed Kavanaugh and his family deserved the national apology “for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.”
“You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent,” the president informed the justice.
Without discussing the allegations, Trump declared it a “campaign of personal destruction” which he argued the Democrats leveled against Kavanaugh to keep him off the bench.
“Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception,” he said. “What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process. In our country, a man or woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
Kavanaugh sought to downplay those concerns, by suggesting that he is taking the bench with “no bitterness” and swore to be a “team player on a team of nine” despite the “contentious and emotional confirmation process.”
“On the Supreme Court I will seek to be a force for stability and unity,” the justice said. “My goal is to be a great justice for all Americans and for all of America.”
Here’s how Americans reacted:
Thank you for your CONTINUED service to all of us Mr. Brennan !💙 pic.twitter.com/8R1Xp7ejPb

It is disheartening to say the least to watch Trump and his supporters lie on a daily basis, but will NEVER STOP CALLING THEM OUT. 😠

He must be stopped. McConnell is equally as perverse and corrupt.
