Trumpís Derangement Deepens

Let me put this as simply as I can. After firing FBI Director James Comey for investigating the Trump campaignís contacts with Russians, the president is now openly smearing and threatening to fire his successor as most prominent investigator, special counsel Robert Mueller. There is no question about the motive behind all this, because Trump has told anyone within hearing distance or access to a television that he fired Comey to kill a vital and important investigation into Russian interference in our elections, which yesterday Putin all but admitted: ďThey meddle in all other countriesí affairs, what did they expect?Ē For good measure, Trump is now openly arguing through surrogates that Mueller is acting in bad faith, pursuing a ďwitch hunt,Ē and should be fired if his investigation gets anywhere near the president.

Every now and again, you have to take a moment, stop being distracted by the constant breaking news, and let all this sink in.....

God help us.

Done!...

When the article starts off with a lie, which is nothing more than a belief based in hatred, there's no need to continue on...

Saying "Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for investigating the Trump campaignís contacts with Russians" is the same thing as saying Sarah Palin said she can see Russia from her house (she didn't) and Bill Clinton got impeached because of a hummer (he didn't)...Stupid and ignorant...

Woofie is worried about me falling into the clutches of the left.

He should know by now what it's all about.

At least when I've changed my mind about my current position concerning all things Trump, I am not afraid to show it.

A few of you so-called friends show one side of your story on this forum, then quite the opposite when talking in private.. just sayin'.........
.............that IS SAD.

Hitherto, I shan't continue to get involved in the political circus of His Trumpiness.

Then those few can be happy little campers and I'll just sit here dying to express myself.

Exactly. Some people are not able to understand the lies being told.

What about the lie in Trump's dismissal letter to Comey where he claims it was based upon the recommendation by the AG and Deputy AG* to terminate Comey when Trump openly stated that he was going to fire Comey regardless of what the memo's from the AG and Deputy AG said? What about Trump stating that the Russia investigation was on his mind when he fired Comey? What about Trump telling the Russians that the pressure of the investigation was off because he'd fired Comey? What about the fact that the investigation has outraged Trump according to sources inside the White House? What about Trump making disparaging statements about the Russian investigation that both Republicans and Democrats agree is about addressing a serious threat to our national security? What about the White House stonewalling at every opportunity related to the investigation?

There are really only two options in addressing this.

Trump is intentionally obstructing justice in the Russian investigation or Trump is mentally deranged and doesn't know what he's doing.

Is this a criminal case or a mental health case for Donald Trump?

* Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's memo about Comey, while highly critical (often misleadingly so) of Comey, doesn't actually recommend Comey's termination. Only AG Sessions' memo, referencing Rosenstein's memo, recommends that Trump dismiss Comey.
