On January 20, Donald Trump was inaugurated as president. Photographs of the parade route show a sparse crowd.


On January 21, millions of people demonstrated in peaceful protest against Donald Trump and his many promises to curtail well-established rights and liberties, to ignore climate change, and to privatize large parts of American education. The protests were called the Women’s March but many men participated in cities across the nation and around the world.


The streets of Washington, D.C., Chicago, and other cities were crammed with protestors.


CNN and other media said that the protestors on January 21 outnumbered the attendees at the inaugural ceremonies on January 21.


Trump ignored the millions of protestors and paid a visit to the headquarters of the CIA. He used the occasion to lambaste the media for minimizing the size of the crowd at the inauguration. He also thanked the members of the CIA for voting for him. In short, he maintained his reputation for pettiness and inappropriate remarks, always focused on his insatiable ego.


John Brennan, retired Director of the CIA, blasted Trump for the inappropriateness of his political and egotistical remarks, delivered in front of a wall honoring agents who died in the line of duty.


“(CNN) Former CIA Director John Brennan is “deeply saddened and angered” at President Donald Trump after the commander in chief addressed CIA employees at their headquarters in Langley, Virginia, on Saturday, Brennan’s former deputy chief of staff says.


“Trump spent much of his speech — which he gave in front of a memorial wall that honors the 117 CIA officers who have fallen in the line of duty — focusing on the size of the crowd size at his inauguration, his appearance on magazine covers and saying he “has a running war with the media.”


“Former CIA Director Brennan is deeply saddened and angered at Donald Trump’s despicable display of self-aggrandizement in front of CIA’s Memorial Wall of Agency heroes,” Nick Shapiro said in a statement. “Brennan says that Trump should be ashamed of himself.”
