[Ed. – That’s after the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, you see.]
Former CIA Director John Brennan on Friday escalated his war of words with President Trump — agreeing with HBO host Bill Maher than Trump’s presidency “is the third great crisis in American history” behind the Revolutionary War and Civil War.
“I think we are in a crisis that is the third great crisis in American history,” Maher said on “Real Time,” saying that he felt it was more of a crisis than the Depression but behind the Revolutionary War and Civil War. “Would you rank the crisis we’re in now that way?”
“I would,” Brennan said. “And I think it’s going to get worse before it gets better, because don’t forget: Donald Trump has the authority of the president of the United States in his hands, in terms of what he can do domestically here and as well as what he can do internationally to try to distract attention, whether or not he’s going to try to pursue some type of foreign adventure, military or otherwise.”
