Curtains for Comey: Rocketing through the looking-glass with the Troller-in-Chief

“Whatever else you can say about Trump (don’t get me started), he’s a first-class troll: citing Comey’s handling of the Clinton email probe in the last days of the campaign as his reason for firing him! The very action Trump had long praised as a ‘gutsy’ move by Comey, one which redeemed him in Trump’s eyes. That’s some high-grade mendacity there, transparently false, yet told with a straight face, and pretending it was on advice of the Attorney General. People will say it’s a bad move by Trump, drawing even more attention to the Russian probe the FBI was carrying out. And in conventional terms, it is a stupid, self-defeating act. But it could also be seen as part of a long-term Trump team strategy to tear everything down, rendering the nation’s institutions, laws and established procedures to piles of ruin, covered with steaming piles of bullshit, absurdity and chaos. And what happens to nations and societies in ruins? Why, ‘strong leaders’ must step in, with a strong hand — a free hand — to ‘do what it takes’ to ‘restore order.'” (05/10/17)
