Let's just say for the sake of a thought experience that this is an honest firing with no implications, allusions to collusion, etc...I cannot fathom a more poorly handled and suspiciously timed moment to take this action.

Trump loves using the word 'disaster' and that is precisely what this is. An unmitigated, abject disaster.

So much so that he couldnt "not" have known how it would look.

Which would make any sane person not act such a way.

He was getting to close to something, or rattled someone with questions, and they reported back to trump... and he acted by fireing him. Its the most logical conclusion to draw, trump does not look innocent at all atm.  Now there needs to be a investigation, even more so than before.

Yeah assuming this was a normal firing this is wasn't planned through, well it's Trump so that's not surprising.

Basically saying "I'm firing him for something I praised him for on multiple occasions. We've been investigating him for a while but we didn't have a replacement ready. I promise this wasn't decided last minute. And the FBI ramping up the investigation to me days ago has nothing to do with this"

...Yeah it's hard to believe this is an honest firing.

The alternative-fact crew is workign overtime on this one trying to side step it all.  Hell, Sean Spicer couldn't even handle it today so they sent in a replacement for the White House press briefing.

Exactly.  It's obvious how this would "look".  The 'optics' as they call it now.  That means they had to weigh otu the difference between these bad optics or what would happen if they didn't fire him.   If firing him was the least damaging of the two.....



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

probably his exit strategy. pulling a nixon allows him to leave office without actually saying i quit.  



You know that meeting that Trump had today at the White House with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov?

Oh, you didn't? Perhaps that's because the US press was banned from the meeting. BUT Russian media was allowed in.

Are you pissed off yet?

Poor guy, the Dems wanted him fired when he was investigating Hilary's Emails and now he actually got fired for investigating Trump's associates connection with Russia.

Then again, not being in the firing line anymore must be a relief for Comey.

We have always been at war with Eastasia.

You just have to love this part.  Comey ask the Justice department for more resources to investigate the Russian interference to Rod J Rosenstein and the same person then ask the president to fire him.  It just keeps getting better and better.

Mr. Comey asked for the resources last week from Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, who also wrote the Justice Department’s memo that was used to justify the firing of Mr. Comey this week, the officials said.

If this doesn't look like obstruction of Justice then nothing does.  Even as you state if Trump is actually totally innocent, his actions and timing make him look so bad it cannot even be questioned by his most staunched supporters.  I am calling it, we will bomb someone or some huge deflection will come within weeks to turn the heat off Trump and this firing.

Fox News is spinning it... apparently they cant see what everyone else does.

Isn't that already happening?
