Former acting head of the CIA Michael Morell claims that Hillary Clinton is the valiant valkyrie-goddess defending 'murican freedom, while Trump is Putin and Satan's love-child.

Frankly, my main reaction while watching Morell was: Meet the next Kylie Jenner -- just bleach the hair and add extensions, and he'd be indistinguishable from his interviewer. Shades of Dana Carvey's Church Lady.

It's not exactly a manly bunch running the CIA, is it? This one feeds the image of foppish eggheads in dark smoke-filled rooms -- who always sit with their legs crossed, while glowering over pictures of bare-chested Putin.

To a Trump supporter, every criticism of Trump is proof of concept.

You you don't like what he says, so you attack his appearance? Do you have an opinion on his words, instead of his looks?

Strange. Clinton was the only one with national security information prior to this election, and she failed at the basic idea of keeping national security information secure.

Morrell was the person that changed the Benghazi talking points to the video, then lied about it in front of congress. He was a CBS news analyst and penned a NYT op-ed. He now works for Beacon Global Strategies for Phillipe Reines. That name should be familiar, because he worked for Hillary in the State dept as well as the Deputy Assistant Sect of State.

His endorsement isn't worth much. But then you wont get any information about his connections to both Hillary and her closest state advisors. But its all very easy to find.

He is simply an apologist for Hillary and her crimes. Morel, as a person charged with keeping America secure from sources outside the US, he knows the importance of security, or should know. And yet he lets her off the hook time and time again. Sounds like a guy angling for a top job in a new administration to me.

If these are the sort of stout guys hired, commissioned to protect the rest of us, wow, that is getting kind of scary. When CNN is tougher on Hilary than someone who ought to know better the consequences of poor security decision making, that is getting pretty iffy...
