If that's a joke, it isn't funny.
Oh. Not a joke?
It still isn't funny. https://t.co/BBzKtK9EWk

Barack Obama’s chief counterterrorism adviser who was made director of the CIA in 2013, John Brennan, made a rather candid admission in a recent interview:
Obama's CIA director says he voted for the Communist Party in 1980. https://t.co/3zLoC8C3JU

At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret.
John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US?
“I froze,” Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual conference. “This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,”
Brennan was responding to a question about barriers to recruiting diverse candidates for the intelligence fields, including whether past records of activism could hurt someone applying for a clearance later in life.
Brennan was recounting a story about how, in 1980, he admitted voting for the Communist Party candidate in the previous election.
Which is why he's Obama's CIA director https://t.co/q1nZeH5XQE

It's a little unnerving he ever thought _Communism_ was a good idea. https://t.co/8xvUiEy7nI

@HotlineJosh I'd be surprised to find out who in this admin has not had a flirtation or allegiance to Marxism.

But anyone who brings up cultural Marxism is a loony conspiracy theorist. https://t.co/mtcUxBgJKo

Yeeeeah, that's… not something you want to hear from your CIA director: that he voted for the Commies during the Cold War. https://t.co/kKRWoFM949

Um how did he even get a security clearance, much less get confirmed as CIA Director? https://t.co/SdBrROO19c

@HotlineJosh And yet this, THIS GUY, this is the one amongst thousands who made it to the Director's Chair. THIS guy. Under Obama. FFS!

If Brennan had admitted to once being a “climate change denier,” you can be sure Obama might have considered that UNFORGIVABLE.
