(Daily Mail.com) – The former head of the Central Intelligence Agency has once again assailed President Donald Trump on Twitter after his attacks on former FBI director James Comey.
‘Your kakistocracy is collapsing after its lamentable journey,’ John Brennan tweeted on Friday.
‘As the greatest Nation history has known, we have the opportunity to emerge from this nightmare stronger & more committed to ensuring a better life for all Americans, including those you have so tragically deceived.’
A kakistocracy is literally translated from its Greek roots as ‘government by the worst people.’
According to Merriam-Webster, the number of people who looked up the word ‘kakistocracy’ jumped 13,700 per cent after Brennan’s tweet.
Brennan was reacting to an earlier tweet from Trump in which he denounced Comey as an ‘untruthful slime ball’ and ‘a PROVEN LEAKER AND LIAR’ who ‘should be prosecuted’ for putting classified information in view of the media.
