President Troll on the Planet Hysteria
Really, this is ridiculous. A hysterical Democrat press echoes hysterical Democrats making them even more hysterical. They compare Donald Trump's firing of Jim Comey to when Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox in an attempt to cover up the Watergate scandal. But there are two big differences. One, there's no scandal — and two, if there were, there'd be no trustworthy press to report it.
After eight years of lying belly up like a panting puppy while Barack Obama abused the IRS, corrupted the Justice Department, and mishandled the Middle East, journalists with zero credibility wonder why no one takes their breathless Trump madness seriously.
And Trump trolls the idiots without mercy. You think I'm like Nixon? Here's a photo op of me with Henry Kissinger. You think I'm in league with the Russians? Guess it's time for a meeting with the Russian ambassador and foreign minister. With every move he makes he is saying to journalists what all of us wanted to say to them when they slandered Mitt Romney or beleaguered George W. Bush with non-scandal scandals. I can't write those words here, but one of them's "Go" and another's "yourself." You figure it out.
Anonymous sources say Comey was asking for more money for his Russia probe. Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe says no. People close to the Justice Department say Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein threatened to quit because Trump cited him in his decision. Rosenstein says it never happened. Sources in the FBI say morale is at a new low because of Comey's firing — but the press has been reporting the FBI's morale low for months because of Comey's actions!
Remember the Watergate reporters meeting Deep Throat in a garage and then painstakingly backing up his assertions with high-level sources until a phalanx of editors felt they had the story solid? These modern clowns are in the garage talking to the parking valet and then running with it. Jose says Trump's going to be impeached! What a bunch of knuckleheads.
Democrats who called for Comey to be fired are shocked — shocked — that he got fired? Who cares? That's not a story, that's just politics as usual dialed up to Shrill for the Trump era. The Democrats say Trump fired Comey to kill the Russia investigation? Really? How's that work? Comey didn't run the investigation. He ran the Bureau. The investigation will go on, just as Andrew McCabe said it will.
Trump has a tendency to wait too long to fire people and then suddenly go off. Corey Lewandowski, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn. It's his style, maybe his nature. Maybe he fired people on reality TV for so long he thinks that's how it's done in real life, I don't know. But Comey's latest testimony was shocking stuff and should've gotten him fired right then and there.
