“I think Donald Trump has been reaching into the authoritarian’s toolbox for quite some time,” former CIA director John Brennan responded, “in terms of delegitimizing the press, undermining the institutions of government, trying to corrupt and control of the institutions of law enforcement and intelligence.”

“His opting for this right now I think is just very typical of him,” he added. “And he’s again fabricating crisis that leads to real crises, crisis of confidence in the government, crisis of confidence among federal workers.”

Brennan said that he thinks Trump “comprehends but doesn’t care” that his shutdown is hurting federal workers “because he lacks that gene of empathy.”
