You’re Fired!

Bar my howl when the results came in, I haven’t really said much about the Trump administration.

And that’s because everything he does is pretty much above and beyond satire or comment.

But this week, Donald Trump fired James Comey, the head of the FBI.

Of course, this had nothing to do with any ongoing investigation into links between the Trump election campaign and the Russians.

And how do we know this?

Well, in two ways. Firstly, there’s the letter which was hand-delivered to Comey:

170509181301-james-comey-fired-letter-trump-exlarge-169

There it is, in black and white. “Not under investigation”.

And then there was the official denials. This sacking was on the recommendation of Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General and was, obviously, all to do with Comey’s announcement several days before the election that the FBI were re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email account useage. You know, that thing that gave Trump that extra leg-up to the White House. Of course it was.

Problem is, nobody told Donald.

Turns out, Donald had already made his mind up to fire Comey before those recommendations came in.

Now why would that be?

Feel free to install waterproof sheeting on your beds before answering that.

I’m just going to leave this here for you:
