Elon Musk Wrecks John Brennan With Just Four Words

Grab the popcorn, it’s getting hot between former CIA head John Brennan and Twitter owner Elon Musk.

As we reported, Brennan was infuriated that Musk dared to criticize Dr. Anthony Fauci, saying that his “pronouns” were “Prosecute/Fauci.” But he continued that meltdown with a new tweet saying there needed to be a way to “prevent” people like Musk from being “politically destructive.”


“Good people in democracies need a more effective way to prevent attention-craving, emotionally immature, & highly devious individuals, esp those of means, from being socially, culturally, & politically destructive,” Brennan declared. “We certainly seem to have far too many of them lately.”

First, Brennan is the last person who can talk about “good people.” What irony for Brennan to talk about someone who is “attention craving, emotionally immature, & highly devious” and who is “politically destructive.” I’m thinking that maybe he should be checking the mirror for that one. Isn’t this the same guy who signed that intel letter from 51 former intelligence officials that claimed the Hunter Biden laptop was likely “Russian disinformation” right before the 2020 election? The letter itself was misinformation. Talk about election interference. It’s also the guy whose CIA spied on Congress and he lied about those actions.


How much this latest tweet tells you about Brennan — his natural inclination to deal with someone he disagrees with politically is to “prevent” that person from speaking. That likely explains a lot of what we have seen over the past few years. It also sounds like a threat. What does he mean by “prevent”? The reason we don’t have such a thing in our republic is that we operate under a Constitution and believe in the freedom of speech. We don’t believe that the government or a political party colluding with social media should be shutting down people’s speech.

But as we’re learning about Elon Musk, he doesn’t take anything lying down and he doesn’t seem afraid of these characters, which is a marvelous thing.

First, Musk tweeted that the “Branch Covidians are upset, lol” — a recognition of the furor he’d created from the left over his remarks about Fauci.

But then a few minutes later, he specifically responded to Brennan.

I have to say that this is bravery and it sounds like Musk is willing to throw it all out there to expose these characters. That takes a lot of guts. He’s right on the money about Brennan — there’s so much there for which Brennan has never been held accountable. But it sounds like there’s a lot more to drop in Twitter files and Musk is going to have a lot of fun taking them down.
