White House adviser Kellyanne Conway jabbed former CIA director John Brennan and MSNBC in the same sentence during a Tuesday Fox News appearance.


Conway justified President Trump’s decision to revoke Brennan’s security clearance, alleging that he shouldn’t have a clearance if he doesn’t want to be helpful to the current administration.

“Mr. Brennan has proven he does not want to be helpful of this administration, in fact, he’s a virulent critic of this administration, this president’s policies, on cable TV where he’s now paid for his opinions,” Conway asserted.

Conway also knocked Brennan, who is currently a national security analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, for appearing on a cable channel with lower ratings than Fox. (RELATED: Nickelodeon Smashes CNN, MSNBC In Ratings) 

She told Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner that Brennan is a “former CIA director but current pundit on a cable news station — a lower-rated one than yours.”
