In what our so-called “president” would probably call a “corrupt” and shocking turn, Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume just threw facts in Trump’s face and it wasn’t pretty.
Thursday morning, in another of his rage-filled tweets, Trump claimed:
Not that it matters but I never fired James Comey because of Russia! The Corrupt Mainstream Media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!

“Oh for Pete’s sake. POTUS told NBC the firing was about the Russia probe”.

Trump had originally confirmed in an NBC Nightly News interview that he had fired Comey for precisely that reason.
Trump said in the interview: “And I want it [the investigation] to happen,” he went on to say: “If Russia did anything, I want to know that.”
“I was going to fire Comey knowing, there was no good time to do it. And in fact when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.”
Trump has continuously pursued the idea that the investigation into Russia and its influence on the presidential election in 2016 is some sort of Democrat conspiracy theory. He still uses the fact that he won against all odds, at every possible opportunity, to gloss over whatever he doesn’t want in the news.
Trump will be gutted that he’s lost his only “friends” in the media. We can’t wait for the fallout!!
