Now that I have some time (finally) I want to expand my assessment and commentary centering around President Trump’s abrupt firing yesterday of FBI Director James Comey and a few other little items about Trump that are really beginning to bother me 🙂
Let me start with this…yesterday when Trump issued his letter informing Comey he was fired Comey was in LA delivering a speech to some of his agents. From what I hear initially Comey say the bi-line on a new channel playing on a TV in the room and took it as a joke. To his surprise it was not a joke and it was confirmed to him that Trump had indeed fired him. Comey, I assume, was devastated and had to even ask permission to fly back to DC on the FBI jet he flew to LA on! Frankly, I think this was a pretty shitty way of firing Comey. Trump should have showed some professionalism instead of acting out of emotion as most teens do and waited until Comey got back to DC and summoned him to the White House for a face to face meeting and, thus, inform him that he was terminated. But, as has now become clear after 4 months of his presidency as exhibited by his obsessive presence on Twitter, Trump doesn’t do things the professional way. Instead it now appears to me that Trump acts out of emotion, off the cuff, and that is a very bad thing for a POTUS to conduct business. That tactic might have worked for him in the real estate business but it likely doesn’t work in government. I’m absolutely certain we have not heard the last of Comey yet.
Of course the “excuse” is connected to Comey’s testimony before Congress last week in which he “allegedly” lied about the Clinton emails and the allegation that Comey, according today to the White House, threw a “stick of dynamite” into the Justice Department during a press conference he used to clear Hillary Rodham Clinton. Further, a WH spokesman alleged that Comey had committed “atrocities” as the Trump Administration stepped up the war of words against the now ex-FBI chief. Just what “atrocities” were they??? It’s easy to make allegations but you’d better have some damned good proof! Additionally, at a meeting today between Trump and Henry Kissinger the President said Comey was not doing a good job “very simply.” That aside I can’t help but wonder just why Trump is meeting with that old warmonger Neocon Henry Kissinger to begin with! It appears to me that Trump is now showing his true colors as the Corporatist Neocon he is and has always been! YES America you were FOOLED again and played like IDIOTS again in the last election!!
