Trump Fires Comey (Spoiler Alert: Democrats Are Outraged)

I sat down at my computer with the intention of writing about the firing of FBI Director, James Comey. But as I toyed around with angles to take on the topic, I realized that anything I could say had most likely already been said.

Unless you have been off the grid or in a coma for the last year or so, I'm sure you know the story of Comey's involvement in the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server, as well as the investigation into Trump's supposed collaboration with the Russian government. In fact, I have even written previously about the FBI investigation's potential impact on the election in my article "Anthony Weiner's Wiener Could Help Determine Winner Of Presidential Election".

The Real Reason Trump Fired Comey

I've heard speculation in the media that Trump's reason for firing James Comey was to "appease" the democrats after Hillary Clinton essentially stated last week that he was to blame for her loss to Trump. The liberal media is reporting that Trump is "shocked" that it didn't change anything when it was announced that Comey had been removed. They (through anonymous sources, of course) say that he believed the Democrats wanted Comey removed, so he didn't understand why they were upset, rather than being happy and grateful to him. Of course, these reports are finely-tuned to fit the liberal narrative that Trump is just an arrogant buffoon who doesn't know what is going on and is unfit to hold the office.

I disagree though. I believe that if I, a lowly blogger, can see by now that the Democrats are going to oppose any and every move Trump makes, surely Trump himself is well-aware of this too. My opinion is that he knew exactly how the liberals and the media would react. He was just waiting patiently for Clinton and the Democrats to come out with a hard stance on something (in this case, blaming Comey for Clinton's loss), only so he could make a move that would appear to be an effective response to that stance.
