READ: John Brennan Tweets to Donald Trump: ‘Your Kakistocracy Is Collapsing’

He certainly has a way with words.

John Brennan, the former director of the CIA under President Obama, railed into President Donald Trump earlier today, pushing back against the president’s attacks on former FBI director James Comey, whose book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, paints an unflattering picture of Trump and his administration.

“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,” Brennan tweeted at Trump.

Kakistocracy is defined as “a system of government which is run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens.”

Brennan’s tweet was in response to Trump’s own Twitter rant this morning in which the president slammed Comey, calling him a “weak and untruthful slime ball” and a “proven LEAKER & LIAR” in posts to his Twitter followers.

Trump launched his attacks after Comey, in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos, says the president asked him to investigate the allegations described in the controversial dossier to “prove that it didn’t happen.” The president added it would be “terrible” if his wife Melania Trump believed any of the allegations.

The dossier, compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, includes a graphic account of Trump’s sexual encounter with prostitutes during a 2013 trip to Moscow. The dossier raises the possibility that the encounter––including moments when Trump and the women engaged in water sports––could have been caught on video.

Comey recalls Trump asking him about the dossier during a private dinner on Jan. 27, 2017. Trump brought up the dossier and said, “He may want me to investigate it to prove that it didn’t happen. And then he says something that distracted me because he said, you know, ‘If there’s even a 1 percent chance my wife thinks that’s true, that’s terrible.’”
