John Oliver on Trump firing Comey

This definitely is NSFW

❝ Oliver said the whole exchange led him to ask three questions: “One, can he really be this stupid? Two, does he really think we as a country are this stupid? And three, are we as a country this stupid? And it’s entirely possible the answer to all three questions are ‘yes.’”

RTFA. Make your own decision.

    “McConnell Calls for ‘Less Drama’ From Trump’s White House”(Bloomberg) https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2017-05-16/mcconnell-calls-for-less-drama-from-donald-trump-s-white-house
    “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he’d like to see “less drama” from President Donald Trump — and wants him to choose an “apolitical” FBI director.
    “I think it would be helpful if the president spent more time on things we’re trying to accomplish and less time on other things,” McConnell told Bloomberg News in an interview Tuesday.
    Addressing the controversy over last week’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, the Kentucky Republican said he had recommended President Barack Obama’s former Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland to Trump as a potential replacement.”

    “Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation” (NYT) https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/16/us/politics/james-comey-trump-flynn-russia-investigation.html “The existence of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia.
    Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. The memo was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.”
