Blumenthal vs. Trump

WHITE HOUSE MEMO EXPLAINS

In order to restore the public confidence in the FBI, President Donald J. Trump accepted the recommendation of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and removed FBI Director James Comey from his position yesterday. It was a necessary move to reinstitute faith in America’s crown jewel of law enforcement after a series of high profile and political missteps. The search for new leadership that restores public trust and confidence in the FBI’s vital law enforcement mission will begin immediately.

DEMOCRAT SENATOR SNEERS

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) appeared on CNN’s New Day to bemoan Trump’s firing of the incompetent FBI Director James Comey. “What we have now is really a looming constitutional crisis that is deadly serious because there is an investigation ongoing,” said Blumenthal.

“Ultimately, there may be subpoenas to the President of the United States, just as occurred in 1973 precipitating United States versus Nixon and a similar firing of a special prosecutor,” Blumenthal said.

“So what’s needed now is in fact an independent counsel and special prosecutor.”

TRUMP RESPONDS IN THREE TWEETS

“Watching Senator Richard Blumenthal speak of Comey is a joke. ‘Richie’ devised one of the greatest military frauds in U.S. history. For years, as a pol in Connecticut, Blumenthal would talk of his great bravery and conquests in Vietnam – except he was never there. When caught, he cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness and now he is judge & jury. He should be the one who is investigated for his acts.”

THE REST OF THE STORY

On several occasions, Blumenthal claimed he served in Vietnam; dozens of articles about him listed him as a Vietnam War vet.

While he was in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from 1970 to 1976, he only served in cushy gigs in Washington, D.C., and Connecticut. He saw no action and was never deployed overseas.

Since he got caught lying to promote his political career, he has referred to his efforts to steal honor as being nothing more than “a few misplaced words.”

    Sen. Rand Paul was on CNN yesterday, saying he is sick of Democrats acting “holier than thou” and sheddng “crocodile tears” over the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, since many of them had wanted Comey fired long ago.

    Wolf Blitzer asked Paul why Trump didn’t fire Comey sooner. Rand said, “I think it took a long time mainly because Democrats opposed approving [the attorney general and deputy attorney general].”

    Rush Limbaugh about Comey firing:

    “Do not fall for the temptation to join the Democrats in their rants against Trump on this. Here’s the deal, folks. There is no collusion. The Russians did not hack, did not tamper, did not impact the outcome of our election. It’s been established for over nine months, if not longer.

    “And yet, it’s the only thing the Democrats have. They dare not let go of it. It’s the only explanation they have for why Hillary Clinton lost the election. … Do you realize the Democrat Party literally has nothing virtuous, positive, uplifting to run on? … They have no ideas. They have no optimism. They have no leaders. They have no vision.”

    To the best of my knowledge,aside from being a lawyer I cannot think of any elected democrats who were ever in the private sector to gain any real-world experience.Most are poli-sci majors at some Ivy League school looking to get a job where,backed by the Party, they could make millions by doing little more than being an effective liar.Many republicans,the President included,have real business experience,have had to make payrolls and had life goals beyond becoming filthy rich on other peoples’ money.
