John Brennan, the former CIA director, has said that President Donald Trump "should be ashamed of himself" for his behavior at CIA headquarters.
Mr Trump spoke to CIA officers on Saturday while standing in front of the memorial for fallen CIA agents, using the opportunity to berate journalists over their estimates of the size of the crowd at his inauguration.
A statement released by Mr Brennan's former aide Nick Shapiro said that Mr 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".
"Brennan says that Trump should be ashamed of himself," Mr Shapiro said.
All weekend it felt as though the new administration had a self-destruct button and was desperately searching for it.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer appears to be enraged that the press told the truth about the size of the Trump inauguration crowd.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the inauguration crowd had been 'the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period'.
