TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME, JOHN BRENNAN EDITION: Have you ever see an ex-CIA director attack the United States and its allies, and express sympathy with America’s enemies? Well, you have now.

I’ve never been a Trump fan, but I try to judge his policies based on whether I think they are good or bad policies, not whether I’m a Trump partisan. And I acknowledge that overall his policies have been far better than what I expected in most areas. But there is a whole coterie of people out there who will take the opposite position of Trump just because its Trump. People who, for example, were in favor of moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem when Rubio promised to do it, but suddenly turned against it when Trump moved it, or who suddenly changed their position on the Iran deal when Trump chose to end it. Brennan is just an example of a troubling phenomenon where people are saying and doing things they would never otherwise, simply to oppose Trump.
