He just made a big mistake.
According to Breitbart News, former CIA Director John Brennan slammed President Donald Trump stating that he doesn’t have the psychological capabilities of President Donald Trump “to put the country’s well-being first.”
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell said, “You’ve dealt with post-9/11. You’ve dealt with crises throughout your career in intelligence, real homeland security issues, inside the White House, and in the agency. This feels so very different.”
Brennan replied, “It is very different. And when I was the Homeland Security adviser for President Obama, three months into the administration, we had to deal with the H1N1 crisis. And this was a crisis that was obviously identified first inside the United States, not abroad, so we didn’t have time to try to figure out how it should.”
Mitchell asked, “How bad? Refresh our viewers’ memory about H1NI.”
Brennan said, “It was identified first in April of ’09 and then through the next year, too, because once it subsided over the summer, it came back in the fall and the winter. There were about 60 million Americans that were affected by H1N1 virus, with about 12,000 deaths. It was different than the coronavirus right now in terms of its transmissibility as well as which demographics were affected by the virus. H1N1 infected younger adults much more seriously than the older population. So one of the things President Obama told us, he wanted to have the science, facts, and data drive administration policies and actions.” You can read the full article here.
