Wile E. Coyote and his latest Acme scandal

The audience of Stephen Colbert's show cheered when he told them President Trump fire James Comey as FBI director. The same thing happened at "The View." In both cases, the hosts had to admonish and correct the audience. Comey has always been a friend of Oceania.

At that point, a savvy journalist would have wondered if trying to turn this Tuesday Afternoon T-Boning into Watergate was a good percentage move.

But no. The press continues to misread the political landscape.

Trump supporters will not forgive Comey for not recommending the indictment of Hillary.

Her supporters will not forgive Comey for revisiting the controversy on October 28.

President Trump and Clinton received 94% of the vote.

The media is trying to make a martyr out of a man 94% of the country hates. Good luck on that.

But the Wile E. Coyotes in the press corps are slow learners.

John Dean, still hanging around DC at age 78, bestowed this latest scandal peddled by Acme with his trademarked "worse than Watergate" quote. He's like a Chatty Cathy doll that says only one thing when you pull his string.

This is not an American tragedy. This is a new CEO coming in and cleaning house.

From Tammy Bruce:
When Acting Attorney General Sally Q. Yates was fired for not doing her job, the swamp also screamed “massacre!” Yet, when Republicans would make the occasional quiet peep at Mr. Obama on an appointment or issue, he’d lecture, “I won” or “The election’s over.” After Mr. Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court, failed and supine presidential candidate John McCain whimpered to an unhappy audience, “Elections have consequences.”
The American people were also reminded of that painful fact every day for eight years as we lost our jobs, our health care, and our national and personal security.
Mr. Trump’s one mistake upon taking office was not immediately sweeping out bureaucratic and partisan hacks like Ms. Yates and Mr. Comey. We wanted a team that was from outside the disaster, and with that comes a learning curve. With the firing of Mr. Comey, it became obvious that Mr. Trump now understands the nature of the beast he is assigned to dispatch.
I agree.

Trump should have dumped them all.

Democrats want a special prosecutor. I want a winter home in Hawaii. Guess what? Neither one of us is getting one.

This Acme scandal makes both the press and the Democrats they serve look like hypocrites and crazy cat ladies who are consumed with hate for our duly elected president.

In other words, this Acme scandal shows them for who they are.

On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

  1. Check with Bernie about that winter home. He may have an extra he wants to sale.

  2. President Trump has been criticized for not summarily firing all of Obama's appointees, but I'm starting to see a method to his supposed madness. A mass firing could present some short-term staffing problems and bad "optics." Also, there would be a large group of like-minded folks with nothing else to do but band together. Not a good idea. By weeding them out slowly and seemingly at random the Obama appointees will never know where the ax will fall next. I would think that some of them are pretty anxious right now, particularly at the EPA and Department of Education. Good! Eventually, almost all Obama appointees will either resign from nervous exhaustion and/or be replaced by a Trump appointee. A cat will play with a mouse for a while before killing it. Prresident Trump (Oops! Keyboard bounce or Freudian slip? Not sure, but it fits the narrative so I'll leave it.) is playing with the remaining Obama appointees and a high-profile termination like Comey's has obviously rattled a number of them. - Elric

    1. I like the way you think, E.

    2. A couple of footnotes to this from other things I've read, besides your take above.

      1. I read that no one realized that because Trump was a DC outsider, that he wouldn't have all the contacts to quickly sort through who he can appoint to his administration, that all are unknowns to him (and his close staff) and it means more background and interviews -- so, that is, it is taking him longer than "politicians" take.

      2. This is one I saw in passing, and it sounds terrible about something Obama did, but I can't find it and haven't hit on the right search words. I read something that in January Obama used up all the money for the first quarter or so for new hires and there would be no money to pay any new bureaucrat's wages. I don't know if I read it right or what details I need to find it or it was some exaggeration or fake news passed on in an article as fact. I wish I could find it again (or more on it).

      But these two factors contribute too, I think.

    3. Two good points. I haven't heard of the second one, but I wouldn't doubt Obama and his minions would pull a stunt like that. And President Trump still has time to get things done right. Rome wasn't built in a day, and it took some time to drain the swamps in building the Panama Canal. - Elric

  3. "In other words, this Acme scandal shows them for who they are." Dead on, Don.

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. It's what known in showbiz as a "slow burn".

    The take-out, which Leftards everywhere will inevitably fail to avail themselves of, is to stop hypocritically demanding stuff that you actually really don't want.

  6. I suspect Trump gave him three months to reopen the investigation into Hillary's email scandal. Then because Comey didn't do so he fired him.

    1. And what if he said "I want to see that file. Today."?

      Because how, exactly, do you, legally, keep the president from seeing any file he wants to see? Especially those files that impact on national security?
