Lock Her Up – Never, EVER Underestimate President Trump – Timing Of Comey Firing An Act Of Political Genius

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

It never ceases to amaze me how often Donald Trump, the GOP candidate for president was underestimated during the primary season, his campaign declared dead in the water in hundreds, if not thousands of headlines, before he picked off 16 other GOP candidates and became the official GOP nominee for President, then again underestimated during the general campaign against Hillary Clinton, when even on the day of the election the MSM was declaring he had no chance of winning, just to go on to win and become the President of the United States.

During the whole process, Trump dominated the media narrative, consistently making outrageous statements that would send the MSM and liberals across the board into complete meltdowns, while he relentlessly went about making his case to the heartland of America, which is exactly what gave him the win.


Before getting into my reasons for seeing the timing of firing FBI Director James Comey as act of political genius, let me highlight another point of view as to the “simple explanation for Trump firing Comey when he did,” in the opinion of Breitbart writer Joel Pollak:

But why fire Comey now? The answer is simple. The day before, President Barack Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper repeated, under oath, what he told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on March 5 — that he had seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. That gave the Trump administration the breathing room to dismiss Comey — which it simply did not have before.

It is true that Trump did not have an attorney general and assistant attorney general in place until relatively late, but he could have acted before then — though having their recommendation certainly adds weight to his decision.

Put simply, if Trump had fired Comey while there were still serious questions about Russia, then it would have been more plausible to accuse him of trying to interfere in the investigation or cover up whatever happened. It is now clear that nothing, in fact, happened. Monday’s hearing with Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was meant to reveal a “smoking gun,” and produced nothing but viral videos of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

I don’t disagree, but I see that as only a piece of a puzzle, as I spent a considerable amount of time yesterday, before the Comey firing blew the Internet up, watching a site called Memeorandum (Yes that is how they spell it!), where political stories are highlighted and basically ranked by how much “discussion” there is surrounding a particular article, and where the majority of what is highlighted is “liberal” in nature.

One might ask why, as a conservative, would spend time reading liberal sites, tracking far left opinion…… that is easy, if I only read opinions that echo my own, I would be in a bubble and not be able to “see” any opinion but those that agree with my opinion, which is why I spend a headache-inducing amount of time every day on liberal sites.
