The Washington Examiner reports:
President Trump accused former CIA and FBI official Philip Mudd of becoming “totally unglued and weird” late on Monday, responding to a recent appearance on CNN where he went head-to-head with conservative speaker Paris Dennard regarding the White House’s decision to revoke former CIA agent John Brennan’s security clearance.
After Fox News’ Sean Hannity aired a clip of men engaging in a contentious discussion Friday over whether those with higher security clearances are paid more once they leave the public sector and move to consulting work, Trump said Mudd is “in no mental condition” to have a clearance.
Paris Dennard is vying to succeed Milo as the most annoying homocon in the media.
“Zero. I get zero dollars from consulting companies that deal with U.S. government. Are we clear?”

Just watched former Intelligence Official Phillip Mudd become totally unglued and weird while debating wonderful @PARISDENNARD over Brennan’s Security Clearance. Dennard destroyed him but Mudd is in no mental condition to have such a Clearance. Should be REVOKED? @seanhannity
