Having no skin in this game, I just find it hilarious how hypocritical both sides are being. First, the left hated him for investigating the Hillary email scandal, while the right loved him. Then, the left loved him for letting Hillary off the hook, while the right hated him (I will say it was ridiculous she got away with it, when a normal citizen would be in jail, now.) Then, he released the statement about finding more evidence in Anthony Weiner's emails, so the left went back to hating him and the right loved him. Now, they've switched sides, again, just because one side hates Trump no matter what he does.
What's really funny is not only how hypocritical people are being, but also how ingenious they are. Make no mistake, if Hillary had won, she would have fired him, too. Mainly for revenge. But also because he seemed to actually be doing his job, plus speaking truth to power. And guess what, the left would have supported it 100%, while the right would be bringing up Nixon. You people have chosen sides and will support it no matter what. Your guy is a rich slimeball like the other guy, both using the system to get rich on the taxpayer's dollar? Well, just ignore it, or come up with shitty excuses why one isn't as bad as the other. It's why Washington is so corrupt right now. It's exactly what George Washington warned us about forming parties.
And the normal American can't even keep up with what their party wants. When Stephen Colbert reported this, his audience cheered. That's because up until that point, their party was telling them they hated Comey and he should be fired. But, since they figured they could make some political points with this, now they no longer hate him. Colbert had to correct his audience like a bunch of trained monkeys, calling them Trump supporters and then bringing up Sessions, a man they've been trained to automatically hate.
Completely pathetic on both sides.
I'm just going to copy/paste what I said recently.
Had Trump fired Comey the first week of office, he would had scored big points with Democrats. But the timing of it now is highly suspicious. Let's take a look at the timeline, shall we?
Oct 28, Trump praises Comey for his handling of the Clinton email case.
Jan 22, Trump praises Comey again and asks him to stay on board as FBI director.
March 2, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recuses himself from Russia investigations because he is under that investigation.
April 25, Rod Rosenstein sworn in as Deputy Attorney General to oversee Russia investigation.
May 8, Comey asks Rosenstein for more money for the Russia investigation.
May 9, Sessions (who is supposed to be recused) and Rosenstein advise Trump to fire Comey because of "how he handled the Clinton email case".
May 9, Trump fires Comey. Comey learns of it via news on TV.
May 10, Trump meets with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. US media not allowed in. Russian media allowed in.
How does this not look bad?
