President Trump probably didn’t expect the media to give him a round of applause for showing FBI Director James Comey the door, but did he really think they would savagely attack him in such a brazen, exaggerated way? Maybe. Certainly, if anyone has seen to the heart of the mainstream media’s cowardly political bias, it’s Donald Trump.
Even so, Trump must have been somewhat taken aback by the extraordinary allegations made by some in the media and a handful of lunatics in the Democratic Party. After all, these guys were just saying a few days ago that Comey was responsible for costing their candidate the election. That he was off the page. Gone rogue. Needed to be reigned in.
Oh, but fired? Apparently not.
On Wednesday morning, Trump took to Twitter to elaborate on his decision and to comment on the rank hypocrisy seen in and amongst his political enemies (the mainstream media being chief among them.
“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!” Trump wrote in one tweet.
“James Comey will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI,” he said in another.
“Comey lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike,” he concluded. “When things calm down, they will be thanking me!”
Of course, that’s just the thing. “When things calm down” appears to be a stage in the Washington frenzy that we’re never going to get to. Make no mistake, these liberals are out for blood, and they apparently don’t care how ridiculous they look as long as they can pretend to feast. And because viewers and readers like the ongoing “drama” of it all, they can cite their ratings and subscription numbers as evidence that they’re going in the right direction.
But that’s a dangerous game. Yes, the media is making hay with All Things Trump right now, but eventually, the American people are going to demand that they either put up or shut up. And if they can’t bring this thing home, it’s going to be the final straw for a populace that should have turned these clowns off after November 8th.
Democrats have big plans for a huge electoral landslide in 2018. They don’t seem to realize that with every passing day, they’re digging themselves into a hole that ONLY an impeachment conviction can pull them out of. Short of that – and from all available evidence, they are going to be WELL short of that – 2018 is going to make 2016 look like a Democratic Party renaissance.
