Oh, and Thanks for the Sh!t Sandwich!
Today, Trump fired the man most directly responsible for putting him in the White House, FBI Director James Comey, whose announcement about a "reopening" of the Clinton email investigation 11 days before the election gave Trump the electoral college victory.
James Comey is an asshat and I'm glad to see him go. His partisan unprofessionalism will always be remembered as the key factor in electing the criminal-in-chief, the most corrupt, incompetent and terrible President we've seen in my lifetime.
The White House's reason, given after the firing, was that Comey didn't follow through in prosecuting Hillary over the e-mail non-scandal. That's obviously a smokescreen, while Comey's lead of the investigation into Trump's Russia connections is a much more likely reason. Hilariously, the White House apparently thought that firing Comey would not create controversy. Like they are in everything else, they were wrong.
So long, Comey. You will not be missed.
As for a replacement for Comey? I'm guessing Trump's thinking of Himmler.
