In the end it will be pink-slipped FBI Director James Comey who will take down all Democrat credibility.

Courtesy of Comey’s dismissal, get ready to see the biggest Democrat stage act of all time.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s crocodile tears will cry her a river wider than even Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s.

Playing and acting are what demented Dems do best

The Democrat Progressives are OUTRAGED (hear them bray!).  They are in a tailspin (waiting to collapse dramatically in front of the mainstream media for full coverage).  Any day now, they’ll be leaving teddybears and flowers in front of FBI headquarters.

James Comey, the man who tried but failed to make an ongoing legend out of President Donald Trump in cahoots with the Russians, is gone.

Time to pull their hair out, even though many Democrats have so little left to pull.

Pouring salt in their ever-gaping wounds, misogynist-smeared President Trump’s getting the last word by going over the MSM head to Twitter, pointing out that the same Dems going for Comey’s head are now in deep mourning that he’s gone.

”The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including that he should be fired, but now play so sad!” Trump tweeted.

Playing and acting are what demented Dems do best. 

Comey was doing just fine when he could be moved like a piece on the chess board, exploited by progressives for keeping the Russians-stole-the-election myth alive.  Now that he’s gone he’s of no use to them other than for publicly mourning his departure.

 

“President Trump took to Twitter to fire back at Democrats who condemned his firing of FBI Director James Comey, defending his decision and noting it was Democrats who once leveled some of the toughest criticism at the now-ousted bureau boss.  (FoxNews, May 10, 2017)

“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!” Trump said. 

“He also said Comey had “lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington” and predicted, “When things calm down, they will be thanking me!”

Only when Hell freezes over, Mr. President!

“He pledged Comey “will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI.”  (FoxNews)

“The flurry of Wednesday morning tweets came after Trump overnight hit Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for his criticism. 

“Schumer told reporters Tuesday evening that he had a phone conversation with the president prior to Comey’s firing, and told Trump that he is “making a big mistake.”

“Schumer questioned the timing of the firing and asked whether investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia were “getting too close for the president.”

“Trump fired back later on Twitter, saying: “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer stated recently, ‘I do not have confidence in him (James Comey) any longer.’ Then acts so indignant.”

“Trump was likely referring to a November interview where Schumer called Comey’s decision to send a now-famous letter to lawmakers less than two weeks before the presidential election “appalling.”

“To restore my faith, I am going to have to sit down and talk to him and get an explanation for why he did this,” Schumer said, according to Bloomberg.

“Schumer was not the only Democrat who voiced concerns about Comey. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told CNN at the time that “maybe he’s (Comey) not right for the job.”

The same Pelosi is now draped in black veils.

“Trump, for his part, appeared to have a tenuous relationship—at least publicly—with Comey through the campaign and into his young presidency. The Hill reported back in October that Trump praised Comey for having “guts” to “make the move that he made in light of the kind of opposition he had,” regarding Clinton’s email probe. (Fox News)

“Prior to that comment, however, Trump was critical of Comey during the campaign for not bringing charges against Clinton.

“Trump’s seemingly abrupt decision Tuesday to fire Comey was made at the recommendation of top Justice Department officials who claimed that his controversial handling of the Clinton email case last year.

“A senior White House official told Fox News it was purely “coincidental” that the firing occurred on the same day Comey faced scrutiny for giving faulty testimony about emails sent from Clinton aide Huma Abedin to Anthony Weiner.

“Schumer, for his part, has called for a special prosecutor in the investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“I have said from the get-go that I think a special prosecutor is the way to go, but now with what’s happened it is the only way to go,” Schumer told reporters on Tuesday.

“Schumer called on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint the prosecutor.”

The Democrats didn’t have to wait long for their pals in the MSM to join them in their deep mourning act:

“Tuesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” reacting to President Donald Trump firing FBI Director James Comey, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said it was “grotesque abuse of power,” and that reminded him of former President Richard Nixon’s firing of Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox. (CNN, May 9, 2017)

“Toobin said, “It’s a grotesque abuse of power by the President of the United States. This is the kind of thing that goes on in non-democracies—that when there is an investigation that reaches near the President of the United States or the leader of a non-democracy, they fire the people who are in charge of the investigation. I have not seen anything like this since October 20, 1973, when President Nixon fired Archibald Cox, the Watergate special prosecutor. This is something that is not within the American political tradition. That firing led indirectly to the resignation of President Nixon, and this is very much in this tradition. This is not normal. This is not politics as usual. This is something that is completely outside how the American law is supposed to work.”

“He added, “There is no question the president has the legal authority to do what he has done. But that is not by any means the end of the inquiry. This is a political act—when the president is under investigation when his White House counsel was described yesterday as being told that his national security adviser was subject to blackmail by the Russians. And they fired the attorney general a few days later. Now they fired the FBI director. I mean, what kind of country is this?”

Toobin, who was only 13 when when former President Richard Nixon, axed Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox, must have a better memory than most.

Meanwhile, how long will the Dems and MSM remain in a state of deep mourning for Comey?

Until the masses catch up and start chanting about Hillary Clinton: “Lock her up!”
