A side effect of Donald Trump’s rise to power has been what some might call the further decay of the two-party system, with the Republican Party being split apart at a significantly pronounced rate.
On the one side, you’ve got Donald Trump and his followers, all of whom are under the control of whatever happens to emanate from the belligerent businessman’s mind. On the other side, you’ve got those who are truly morally committed to the loosely “conservative” cause, such as Ohio GOP Governor John Kasich and the now former FBI Director James Comey, who abandoned the president’s party in the face of the liar rising to power within it.
Comey has figured prominently in the national political conversation for some time, but his importance has been highlighted this week with a high profile appearance on ABC made in connection to his book called A Higher Loyalty coming out.
Such has given the president a fresh opportunity to rage as he so often loves to, taking to Twitter this Wednesday with yet another message about the former FBI Director — and this time contradicting himself.
‘Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!’
For one, it has been widely reported and understood at this point to be the case that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking into the question of whether or not the commander-in-chief is guilty of obstruction of justice. The president is clearly sensitive to this and trying to defend himself here.
How very sensitive he seems here makes the question pop out of if he’s guilty. Why else would he feel the need to defend himself at every turn?
His defenses have reached a level here that he is literally contradicting his own past statements on the matter, since last year he told Lester Holt that he had “the Russia thing” in mind when dismissing the FBI Director.
Thus, his obsession with clearing his name has reached such a fever pitch that he has yet again detached himself from reality.
