‘One Serving of Impeachment, Please’: Twitter Reacts to Reports That Trump Asked Comey to Drop Flynn Investigation
We have a new report on behavior from the president and you know what that means! Time for a Twitter roundup.
First, let’s recap: Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey last week in a move that shocked just about everyone and led to widespread assumptions that he’d done it to prevent the FBI from digging deeper into his possible ties to Russia. Then, after reports emerged that the president had demanded Comey’s loyalty during a dinner, he tweeted that Comey should hope there were no “tapes” of their private conversations.
We still don’t know if there are “tapes,” but we do have it on good authority — as of a few minutes ago — that Comey kept detailed notes about his meetings with the former reality television icon. In some of those notes, apparently, Comey indicated that Trump asked him to drop the investigation into former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, who was let go because of — you remember! — possible ties to Russia.
Okay, all caught up? Roll that beautiful

If Trump follows the Watergate script any more precisely, the Nixon library will be able to sue him for plagiarism.

Imagine being the poor bastard being thrust out there by the White House right now to say something your boss will undercut tomorrow.
