Imagine, if you will, former president Barack Obama, telling the leaders from a foreign power that the well respected leader of the FBI is a “nut job” and that he is “crazy”, and that the pressure being put on him by the man would relieve him of “real pressure.”
I know it’s hard to imagine, because the former president would not be that nefarious or dumb. Mr. trump seems to be both.
The world, I am sure, would end as we know it. Right-wingnuts would be marching to Pennsylvania Avenue demanding that the brown fella inside comes out and face the masses.
Anyway, there is no need to imagine, because the current president did say to the Russians in the oval office that Jim Comey is a nut job.
In one story, the Washington Post reported that a law enforcement Russia probe has identified a current adviser to the president as a “person of interest,” while a New York Times story reported that the commander in chief told visiting Russian officials that the firing of “nut job” FBI Director James Comey had taken a weight off his shoulders.
“I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job,” President Trump said in a meeting with Russian officials last week, according to the Times report on a document summarizing the meeting. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”
I am sure that all of you trump supporters wishes that was fake news. Sadly for you, it is not.
Finally, while we have all been distracted the trump clown show, we should not turn away from some of the things that have been (and continue) to happen in America.
