|Donald Trump, our national embarrassment|
President Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey today. He used the excuse of Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation. This is the same Trump who praised Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation. Folks, don't buy the latest Trump con. Trump fired FBI James Comey because Comey is investigation of the Russian ties to the Trump presidential campaign.
Folks, I remember well former president Richard M. Nixon firing all those prosecutors who were investigating Watergate ties to his White House. I voted for Nixon (twice) and believed Nixon until he showed his real hand by firing the prosecutors and shut down the special prosecutor's office. You students of history know how that ended. And this is how Trump's presidency will end.
The blowback to Trump's heavy handed way of firing anyone who gets close to getting to the truth of the Russian ties to the Trump campaign.
Finally, this is the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency. Now to see how many Republicans, who up to now have been all too willing to look the other way of Trump's incompetence and breaking of normal rules of the presidency.
Folks, at best we have a con man as president. At worst we have a criminal and a traitor as president. Tonight is the beginning of the end for the Trump presidency.
One good thing will come out of this nasty and unsavory state of affairs, Trump and his supporters will see how American democracy works.
