If Trump Were Judged By His Own Criteria For Firing Comey...

If Trump's Criteria For Firing Comey Were Applied To Devious Donald Himself, He'd Be Fired Bizillion Times Over | made w/ Imgflip meme maker

Trump Tweet

Trump kept national security threat General Michael Flynn on The National Security Council for 18 days after being informed that Flynn was at risk of being extorted by the Russian government. What's more, Obama warned Trump against hiring Flynn in November, 2016.

Trump praised Comey in October, then fired him Tuesday for that very conduct

Washington Post
Consistency has never been part of President Trump's playbook, and no more so than in the firing of FBI Director James B. Comey.

Alan: In July, 2016, when Comey said, “We are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case,” Trump responded immediately on Twitter. "The system is rigged. General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment," Trump posted . He then tweeted: "FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow! #RiggedSystem."

When Trump's administration now claims that Comey abused Hillary by probing her emails, The Deplorable One dives into depths of incredibility beyond the pope denying the Ressurection. 

According to the Washington Post: "Officials released a Tuesday memo from the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, laying out the rationale behind Comey’s dismissal and attributing it all to his handling of the Clinton case. Officials said Rosenstein began examining Comey’s conduct shortly after being sworn into office two weeks ago. “The FBI’s reputation and credibility have suffered substantial damage, and it has affected the entire Department of Justice,” Rosenstein wrote. “I cannot defend the director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken. Almost everyone agrees that the director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives.”"
