What jackals do

I hate that I can't cheer Comey's firing, because I can't help wondering what Comey might have found in the Russian probe, and how a new FBI director picked by Trump might spin what they have more in Trump's favor. Yes, I think Comey screwed our election and helped turn the tide against HRC, but that doesn't mean Trump owned him. More fuckery.

And yesterday was so bright with Macron's win and Yates fierce unflagging testimony that was a joy to watch. So the timing of firing Comey may be a strategy that each loss for Trump, as yesterday was, must be followed by a quick power play to keep the opposition demoralized and off balance. Constant whiplash for the engaged resistance.

So angry. Not giving up--I would so love to see Yates run for office and keep fighting for the resistance.

I'm so disgusted by this firing that I can hardly speak.

What action do you expect anyone to take over this? Aside from releasing some angry soundbite press releases, that is. The GOP controls Congress. They are not going to do rally around Trump no matter what he does in order to retain their hold on power.

This is all just horrible. Horrible. And I really hate the double-standard of it's okay you investigated Hillary, but don't you DARE mess with ME, b/c gosh darn it, I'm a MAN and I have DOLLAR SIGNS.

It's true this is awful, but it has also drawn attention back to the Russian probe. I'm less upset than maybe I should be, but I do think this firing will work against 45 in the court of popular opinion.

I think so, too.
