Trump Laughed With The Russians About How Great It Was To Fire “Nut Job” Comey
CNN — President Donald Trump bragged to two top Russian officials last week that firing “nut job” FBI Director James Comey eased “great pressure” on him, The New York Times reported Friday.
“I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to the Times. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”
Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak came one day after Comey was fired.
I want to say two things. One, the line “he was crazy, a real nut job” is a laugh out loud funny line. Just such a dismissive, mean thing to say about somebody. Like on Monday he’s your FBI Director, Tuesday he should be in an insane asylum. Two, it’s a Friday afternoon and I don’t want to do this — I prefer to make a few wise cracks and have a good old time with my friends — but Trump referring to the recently dismissed FBI Director who gave dozens of years of his life to serving his country and to keeping Americans safe as just “crazy, a real nut job,” is RIDICULOUS. It’s a scumbag move. Trump goes around defending Michael Flynn to the death, declaring him “a good guy” despite his sketchy business with Russia, while throwing Comey under the bus. That’s fucked up. Funny, but fucked up, disrespectful, and childish.
Anyway, have a great weekend!
