Just when you think it can't get worse. Trump is his own worst enemy.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said. The document logging the meeting was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

Can anyone actually believe that Trump had ANY other reason to fire Comey than to squelch the Russian investigation? And make this gloating statement directly to the Russians?

Many revelations to come, I think, now that Doofus has left the building!

Oh good grief. Trump just admitted in an official gov't transcript that he fired Comey to stop the Russia investigation.

"I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job," Trump reportedly said. "I faced great pressure because of Russia. That's taken of."

It would be nice to have a corroborating statement from an official.


Or a recording.

"The White House document that contained Mr. Trump’s comments was based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office and has been circulated as the official account of the meeting. One official read quotations to The Times, and a second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion."

Jason Chaffetz will formally ask for the document in 3,2,1...

I'm sure it was all just a joke, right? Just locker room ribbing.

Get ready for the Trump defenders:

1- He didn't say that!
2- (When the aspect of having evidence is introduced) If he did, you misunderstood/misinterpreted it.
3- If you didn't, then saying it was justified.
4- If it wasn't, bring on the deflection, whatabouts and or democrats said it too!
Wash, rinse, repeat steps 2-4 as needed.
