President Trump quoted Tucker Carlson’s opening monologue about former CIA Director John Brennan in a tweet on Thursday night.

“How did somebody so obviously limited intellectually get to be CIA Director in the first place?” Trump tweeted from Carlson’s show.

Sarah Sanders announced the president would be revoking Brennan’s security clearance during the press briefing on Wednesday. (RELATED: Trump Revokes Ex-CIA Dir. John Brennan’s Security Clearance)


“Former CIA John Brennan has proven to be many things. He is dishonest having lied to the American people multiple times while working as Director of the CIA. He is irresponsible, he’s accused his political opponents of treason,” the show host said.

“Well giving his opinion is literally his job now actually, he is a cable news pundit. Yesterday the Trump Administration finally revoked his security clearance. Now why was John Brennan able to keep his top secret clearance after leaving government in the first place? Do other MSNBC contributors have security clearances? If so, what national interest is served by that?” Carlson added during the monologue.
