Trump lashes out at Dems on Comey firing


President Trump brings the heat at Democrats over the Comey firing, on Twitter, of course:

  • On Chuck Schumer, who pointed out Trump's string of firings: "Cryin' Chuck Schumer stated recently, "I do not have confidence in him (James Comey) any longer." Then acts so indignant. #draintheswamp"
  • On Democrats in general: "The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad!"
  • On Richard Blumenthal, who told Morning Joe that Trump's rational for firing Comey "fails even the most cursory smell test": "Watching Senator Richard Blumenthal speak of Comey is a joke. "Richie" devised one of the greatest military frauds in U.S. history. For.... years, as a pol in Connecticut, Blumenthal would talk of his great bravery and conquests in Vietnam - except he was never there. When....caught, he cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness...and now he is judge & jury. He should be the one who is investigated for his acts."
