A former counterterrorism official at both the CIA and FBI has again slammed President Donald Trump, this time for being an unredeemable “narcissist.”
Philip Mudd, now a counterterrorism analyst on CNN, also called it “disgusting” that Trump complained about media reports of a mediocre inauguration crowd in January while the president spoke in front of a memorial wall honoring CIA heroes shortly after he was sworn in.
“We saw this within 24 hours of his inauguration,” Mudd said on CNN Thursday. “He doesn’t represent 320 million Americans, he represents one. And that’s Donald Trump.”
And Mudd lashed the president for his speech Monday before the graduating class of the Coastguard Academy in which Trump said that he was doing a tremendous job” as president.
“He should be offering a vision of the future,” Mudd said. “What does he talk about? The sissy-in-chief talks about how tough it is to be president because the media comes after him.”
Mudd has been a frequent harsh critic of Trump. He attacked him twice on CNN last week, calling the president a “coward” on May 10 for firing James Comey from his post as FBI director. On Friday, he criticized the president for his behavior again. “You feel like you’ve got to give the president of the United States a pacifier and a rattle and put him in the crib,” Mudd said.
