Trump SCREAMED AT TELEVISION over Russia investigation - advisor

President Donald Trump weighed firing his FBI director for more than a week. When he finally pulled the trigger Tuesday afternoon, he didn't call James Comey. He sent his longtime private security guard to deliver the termination letter in a manila folder to FBI headquarters.

He had grown enraged by the Russia investigation, two advisers said, frustrated by his inability to control the mushrooming narrative around Russia. He repeatedly asked aides why the Russia investigation wouldn’t disappear and demanded they speak out for him. He would sometimes scream at television clips about the probe, one adviser said.

We are in serious danger.

1. Now, Trump just put the whole thing on steroids! He thinks firing Comey will make it

go away? How naive.

7. He's acting exactly like a dictator

He thinks he can control the FBI by firing its director. The FBI doesn't work that way; neither, BTW, does the DOJ, whose career employees don't necessarily share the Secretary's outlook and beliefs.

13. But Republicans are defending him tooth and nail.

They are in so deep that some of them may be jailed if Dems take control in 2018.
They will be willing to pull the country down to save their own skins.

16. Some?, much?, of the GOP IMO functions more as a criminal organization than a political party

anymore.

2. Do we need any further proof?

This man is completely deranged, and everyone is watching the Democratic Party.
What are we going to do? We need to act quickly.

Courage and resolve!

5. "demanded they speak out for him."

He had every GOP Senator at the Yates/Clapper Hearings "speak(ing) out for him" by completely going off topic with bullshit about "leaks", "immigration E.O. legalities", and "Hillary's emails". He had Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Sanders dismissively waving away the entire affair and instead focusing on how many Senators had confirmed Deputy AG Rosenstein and demanding that everyone "move on" to something else.

His entire party has thrown itself into the water like ants forming a bridge to protect him from drowning in his own malfeasance - their sacrifice to have his back.

8. Good analogy

Just caled Pat Toomey (my R Senator) and asked if he thinks protecting 45 will be worth what happens in 2018.

14. I am a PA resident and IMHO, Toomey won't

give a shit. He just got re-elected. We had our chance but too many people split their votes rather than do straight ticket.

Both Clinton & McGinty should have been elected.
