Trump Desperately Trying to Silence His Biggest Critic With Name Calling

The stupid president doesn’t seem to be taking the news very well, as evidenced by his pair of whiny tweets this morning.

“James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH.

“He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst ‘botch jobs’ of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!”

I think Comey has gotten underneath the president’s skin.

It’s been a few days since the official release of James Comey’s explosive book, but we’re finding out quite a bit regarding the ex-FBI director’s interactions with, and worries about, Donald Trump.

What’s especially entertaining about Trump’s immature tirade, isn’t just that it’s all lies, but how far his lack of self-control has disturbed the White House’s strategy.

Politico  reported earlier this week that the president’s assistants intended to ignore Comey – they did not want to be viewed as “punching down” – and prayed that Trump’s visit to South America and following summit with the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Mar-a-Lago resort might “provide a distraction” from the ex-FBI director’s book.

That wasn’t a bad idea, but Trump’s South America trip got scrapped, and the attempts to distract the stupid president didn’t work. So, there was another “presidential” tantrum.

The rest of the White House had looked to the RNC to attack Comey, but they are now scrambling to obey the president’s ill-conceived plan. Press Secretary and lazy-eyed liar Sarah Huckabee Sanders attacked the former FBI director on her Twitter account this morning, and the White House Counselor and compulsive liar Kellyanne Conway followed right after on CNN.

Well, so much for not “punching down.”
