Trump Fires Comey

It is pretty funny to watch the political contortionists at work.

President Trump lashed out on Twitter Tuesday, hours after his firing of FBI Director James Comey, and accused Democrats of hypocritical criticism of the abrupt ouster.

The stunning dismissal led to Democrats and even some Republicans to boost the case for an independent prosecutor to oversee the FBI’s investigation into whether any Trump associates colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Many critics connected the unprecedented firing to Richard Nixon’s administration.

In particular, Trump attacked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who said last November of Comey: “I do not have confidence in him any longer.” Schumer is among the Democrats calling for a new independent prosecutor.

It’s pretty safe to say that Director Comey had lost the confidence of pretty much everyone with his bungling of multiple investigations. The only mistake Trump made here was waiting so long to pull the trigger, but I think he was waiting for Sessions to get his feet under him first.

    Liberals going from ripping Comey for last 6 months, to defending him like he was a p[recious transgender activist, totally pure and holy in his cause, in span of 24 hours is absolutely hilarious!

    Trump destroying liberalism in America has been worth it in terms of his election.

    I love it!

    So the Democrats don’t trust Andrew McCabe as the new acting Director of the FBI.  Isn’t this the same Democrat who wife took $467K from Democrat Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Hillary’s pal?  Wasn’t McCabe in charge of the Hillary Clinton email investigation?  Isn’t McCabe a big Hillary supporter?

    So Schumer and his pals are calling for a Special Prosecutor in the Russia meddling case because they don’t think their boy will get the job done.  Obvious political theater.  So a partisan Hillary Clinton supporter, who has probably already stuck his snout deep into the Russia-Trump investigation, needs help from a Special Prosecutor?

    All I hear is the sound of swamp water running down the drain and Democrats screaming.

    I see everyone was able to get their talking points

    Just read the New York Times is at it again.  The Department of Justice is denying a New York Times report that James Comey requested additional money for the investigation into Russian election meddling just days before he was fired by President Trump.
    “The story is totally false,” DOJ spokeswoman Isgur Flores.
    Not the NYT!  Must be fake news.

    NYT Headline: TRUMP Dying

    Looked into my crystal ball and saw tomorrow’s headline for the New Your Times.


    Our crack investigative team has found another cover-up by the Trump administration that the President is dying.  According to un-named sources inside the White House, the Donald pinched a loaf yesterday and there were no floaters.

    Our medical experts all agree that this is an indication of a serious medical condition that could be potentially fatal.  Blah, blah, blah.  The Senate today called for a special prosecutor to investigate Trump’s poop. –  Blah, blah, blah.-20 paragraphs later -. There is also the possibility that President Trump did not eat a salad yesterday.

    Sorry, could not help myself.

    We’re all dying. Some faster than others.

    And in Le Roi du Bore’s case, not fast enough.

    Sounds like you are jealous of something.  Probably my firm grasp on truth and reality.

    OMG-the king of the north just made a funny.

  9. Paul

    Who would want to be jealous of some pissant village bureaucrat?

    You are once again mistaken, I’m an elected official at both the Town and County level.  You are …………?

  11. Paul

    So there’s a kleagle at the county level now? Hmm.

    I’m watching Hannity becoming unhinged again tonight attempting to defend Trump by deflecting from facts to blaming the Democrats. Sad.

    Sorry for the off topic question but with Owen’s diverse audience, perhaps someone can tell me what is “the non-binary transgender community”?

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    Trump calling Comey a “grandstander”, and “showboat” is the height of hypocrisy.  He just doesn’t know what he doesn’t know…..

    the non-binary transgender community

    That would be hominids who do not know how they pee.
