You’ll have to indulge me with one more day of talking about the Comey firing. Because here’s the thing: I don’t get it. I mean, I understand that it happened, and I understand why it happened. But I don’t understand how. How did:
— Trump think that people would actually be happy about Comey’s firing?
— No one on Trump’s team see this exact reaction coming?
— Spicer legit hide in the bushes to avoid reporters?
— The White House not have a better plan for Comey’s firing given that he literally found out he was fired when a news report played on a TV behind him, and he was then unsure if he’d be able to use the FBI plane he’d taken to L.A. to get home?
— Trump think that anyone would believe he fired Comey for his handling of Clinton’s emails when we have video from less than a year ago of Trump talking about how great it is? (This part is legitimately concerning for me. If Trump didn’t care if we bought his lies, I’d be disgusted, but at least there’s a weird kind of integrity to it. He’s lying, he knows we know he’s lying, he just doesn’t give a shit. But he seems genuinely surprised that people don’t buy this bullshit-turd he’s trying to serve us. That’s the sign of a man so out of touch with any form of reality that I truly question his mental capacity and ability to run a 5k let alone the most powerful nation on Earth. I feel like the entire country is Julia Roberts banging on that restaurant window, and Trump is Dennis Quaid in full disbelieving smugness. HOW DOES HE NOT KNOW THAT WE CAN SEE HIM?)
— Richard Fucking Nixon’s library look at the shit Trump’s pulled, and thought, “Well, we can’t let that ruin our brand”?
— Henry Kissinger escape Satan’s claws for yet another year? Fuck that guy.
— A team of such wildly-incompetent, sociopaths manage to trick 60 million Americans into thinking that the failed son of a wealthy businessman has the answers as to how to stimulate the economy and job - Oh, right. Well, whoever did that should definitely be fired, right?
