Ha, I found Kellyanne!!! She showed up on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” to talk about her boss’, President Donald Trump, latest SNAFU (Still Normal All Fucked Up).

Trump decided to surprise everybody by firing James Comey as the FBI Director. But ol’ girl Kellyanne says this firing was in the works for a while and everybody is just kicking at dust trying to say this is about the Russian probe.

According to Ms. Conway, Comey’s firing is about “restoring public confidence in the FBI.”

Cooper asked Conway if the Russian probe played a role into Comey’s firing. And Conway responded, “…today’s actions had zero to do with that.”

How-ev-er, the problem that ol’ girl and ol’ boy face is that actions speak louder than words.

And Trump’s actions of firing Comey for the very action that he praised him for doing just 6 months ago has folks saying, “Hmmm, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd!”

Y’all remember back in October when Trump said this about Comey, “And I have to give the FBI credit that was so bad what happened, originally, and it took guts for Director Comey to make the move that he made in light of the kind of opposition he had with them trying to protect her from criminal prosecution.”

And now fast forward to May 9, 2017. This is the date of Donald Trump’s letter to James Comey: “While I greatly appreciate you informing me on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.”

As y’all can see, this here is some double-talk. In one breath he praises James Comey for re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server, then in the next breath he says that James Comey isn’t able to “effectively lead the Bureau.”

The one consistent factor here is that Comey’s actions directly impact Trump.

James Comey’s decision to announce that he had re-opened the investigation into Hillary Clinton gave Donald Trump the extra oomph he needed in order to get over the presidential line.

Comey’s actions the past three months of testifying before Congress, confirming a criminal investigation into Trump’s campaign for possible collusion with Russia during the 2016 Presidential Elections has sucked the life out of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Hence, Comey had to go because he was doing what Trump said he wasn’t doing; which is his job “effectively.”
