John Brennan: SOTU Took ‘Demagoguery’ to New Level

Tuesday on MSNBC’s special coverage the State of the Union speech, former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan accused President Trump’s speech Monday night of raising “demagoguery” to a “new level.”

“I think Donald Trump raised to a new level the demagoguery, the hyperbole, the chauvinism and even the misrepresentation on a lot on the issues and national security on a policy front,” Brennan said. “He said if it wasn’t for his election, we would be at war with North Korea today. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. He, in fact, helped to increase the tension between the two countries last year when exchanging the rhetorical broadsides with Kim Jong-un.”
