Democrats React Calmly to Firing of Guy They Wanted Fired: ‘A dark and dangerous moment in history’

People might take these clowns seriously if they didn’t freak out daily over anything to do with President Trump. So excuse us if we play the world’s smallest violin while these buffoons screech for the cameras.

The decision to fire James Comey amid the FBI’s investigation into the President’s ties to Russia outraged Democrats who warned of a Nixon-like constitutional crisis.

Donald Trump wrote to the bureau’s director Comey on Tuesday afternoon saying: ‘You are hereby terminated and removed from office immediately.’

Among Democrats, the reaction to Trump’s dismissal of Comey was one of rage mixed with apprehension about the future of American democracy.

Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen warned that the US was at ‘a dark and dangerous moment in history.’

Van Hollen accused the president of igniting ‘a crisis of confidence’ in the Justice Department.

‘Firing Comey has the foul stench of an attempt to stop an ongoing investigation into collusion between Trump campaign and the Russians,’ he said.

Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz, a Democrat, tweeted: ‘We are in a full-fledged constitutional crisis.’

Two Democratic senators, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, described the decision by Trump to sack Comey as ‘Nixonian.’

Another Democratic senator, Ed Markey of Massachusetts, said the decision had parallels to Nixon’s firing of Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox in 1973.

Markey said that Trump’s move ‘is disturbingly reminiscent of the Saturday Night Massacre during the Watergate scandal and the national turmoil that it caused.’

Of course since these shrill infants are historical illiterates, that Nixon comparison falls flat, and they got punked:


Ouch.

Trump, meanwhile, reacted like Trump:


Then he poked fun at the Democrats:

He then save one just for Cryin’ Chuckie:


Heh.

    Just the other day Hilly said she would have been elected if not for Comey.

    It’s the biggest constitutional crisis since:

    (A) Spicer encouraged people to buy Ivaka’s sunglasses;
    (B) Bernie Sanders lost his car keys;
    (C) Hillary emailed Huma to ask Huma to email some lesser flunky to bring Hillary some tea;
    (D) The producers of Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast some black guy in the part of The Black Guy From Star Wars;
    (E) Hillary was walking through the woods in Chappaqua and stepped on a rake.

    I for one am formidably impressed that the moron from Mass, Ed Markey, can string together a coherent stream of words. We must truly be in a constitutional crisis … or something, sort of.
