President Donald Trump recently fired the FBI Director James Comey. This decision got a wave of negative press from Democrats, which are absolute hypocrites.
They themselves were bashing Comey only a few months ago, but now that President Trump finally fired him, they are screaming conspiracy.
President Trump is not going to stand back and let them fill the new stream with their FAKE NEWS!
He went to Twitter and said exactly what was on everyone’s minds. According to President Trump, “The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad!” Definitely true.
Comey was already a dead fish floating in the water and all President Trump did was scoop him up and throw him out. He had “lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington.”
President Trump knows that liberals will never support any of his decisions. He is prepared for the terrible news cycles that come every time he makes an announcement. He went on to say, “when things calm down, they will be thanking me…” and that Comey “will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job.”
The flurry of Wednesday morning tweets came after Trump overnight hit Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for his criticism. Schumer told reporters Tuesday evening that he had a phone conversation with the president prior to Comey’s firing, and told Trump that he is “making a big mistake.” Schumer questioned the timing of the firing and asked whether investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia were “getting too close for the president.” Trump fired back later on Twitter, saying: “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer stated recently, ‘I do not have confidence in him (James Comey) any longer.’ Then acts so indignant.” Trump was likely referring to a November interview where Schumer called Comey’s decision to send a now-famous letter to lawmakers less than two weeks before the presidential election “appalling.” “To restore my faith, I am going to have to sit down and talk to him and get an explanation for why he did this,” Schumer said, according to Bloomberg. Schumer was not the only Democrat who voiced concerns about Comey. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told CNN at the time that “maybe he’s (Comey) not right for the job.” Trump, for his part, appeared to have a tenuous relationship—at least publicly—with Comey through the campaign and into his young presidency. The Hill reported back in October that Trump praised Comey for having “guts” to “make the move that he made in light of the kind of opposition he had,” regarding Clinton’s email probe. Prior to that comment, however, Trump was critical of Comey during the campaign for not bringing charges against Clinton. Trump’s seemingly abrupt decision Tuesday to fire Comey was made at the recommendation of top Justice Department officials who claimed that his controversial handling of the Clinton email case last year.
