Former CIA Officer Blasts Off: 'I'm Watching A Clown Show!'

Phil Mudd lost it while discussing the Flynn situation on Wolf Blitzer's show

It isn't often former CIA agents offer their candid opinions, but Phil Mudd certainly went there on Wolf Blitzer's show Tuesday.

Wolf Blitzer asked Mudd to comment on whether Lt. General Michael Flynn was the appropriate choice for National Security Advisor, and he went off.

He touched on the inappropriateness of Flynn leading the "Lock Her Up!" chants at Trump rallies, and then went on to the question of Flynn, Jr.'s involvement in the mess called Pizzagate, before letting fly.

"Then we go on to argue that individual's son, who retweets fake news, should be given access to top secrets," Mudd ranted.

“I’m watching a clown show! I’ve had it with this, Wolf! I want to see a transition from a campaign to reality, and I don’t see it yet.”

Nor will he, it appears. Trump did not run a reality-based campaign and he's not going to run a reality-based administration. This is the Republicans' wet dream. Full control of government and billionaires waiting for the payoff. It will be a clown show from Day one to the end. Period.
