CIA Director Gina Haspel said Trump’s post-election behavior was ‘insanity’ and he was ‘acting out like a 6-year-old with a tantrum,’ book says


Business Insider: Then-CIA Director Gina Haspel told the US’s top general that former President Donald Trump was “acting out like a six-year-old with a tantrum” in the wake of the 2020 election, according to a new book.

In addition to refusing to concede the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden and pushing groundless claims of election fraud, Trump fired (or tried to fire) a number of top officials — most prominently, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper on November 9.

“Yesterday was appalling,” Haspel said in a November 10 conversation with Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to Bob Woodward and Robert Costa’s forthcoming book “Peril.”

“We are on the way to a right-wing coup. The whole thing is insanity. He is acting out like a six-year-old with a tantrum,” Haspel, a 35-year veteran of the agency, said, with the authors writing that she, too, was afraid of being canned.

Milley assured Haspel that “we’re going to be steady,” according to the book. “Steady as a rock,” he added. “We’re going to keep our eye on the horizon. Keep alert to any risks, dangers. Keep the channels open.”

“Peril” and other books on the Trump administration released this summer appear to give insight into the final months of Trump’s term, with the president’s behavior alarming many senior officials. read more…

  1. As long as you follow Zionism and Talmud don’t expect to get decent leaders. look at Haspel and Trump – the birds of the same feather.

  2. It’s really bleak, but Haspel is a bigger part of that problem of which you speak. I was going to say “than Trump,” but have decided that I am not so sure it is totally correct. A lot of our politicos carrying water for the BIG “A” project. Peace and Prosperity, hardly a thought.

  3. “We are on the way to a right-wing coup. The whole thing is insanity. He is acting out like a six-year-old with a tantrum,” Haspel said.

    Wrong, this whole thing is part of the grand plan to turn the USA into some kind of Zionist theocracy. Millions of US Christian Zionists and thousands of Dominionists in the US military pray for this to happen. Gordon has written extensively about this. It will most likely be kicked off by a 9/11-style false-flag attack on the USA, this time blamed on Iran. US Christian Zionists have a hard-on for Armageddon and nothing short of WWIII will get them off. This will happen no matter who is president of the USA.
