‘Now They Play So Sad’: Trump Blasts Democrats Over Backlash For Firing James Comey

trump3

President Donald Trump is back on Twitter, firing off at critics outraged that he fired FBI Director James Comey yesterday:

Comey’s firing set off an instant political firestorm on Tuesday, and many critics and political watchers are wondering why the president waited until now to make this decision. Various figures have decried Trump’s actions as authoritarian, and there are questions about whether Comey was fired over to the FBI’s inquiries into the Trump campaign’s potential connections to Russia.

Comey had a great number of political critics on both sides of the aisle, and there were quite a few people who made it clear that they’re glad to see him relieved of his position. Trump’s tweet likely refers to the fact that some Democrats despise Comey over how he handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s email scandal during the 2016 election.
