Yesterday, this happened in Trump's America

FBI Director, James Comey, was fired while his agency was investigating Trump and his administration for possible collusion in a hostile foreign government's interference with the 2016 presidential election.

Washington Post:

Comey's dismissal may turn the anti-Trump wave into a tsunami.

The timing of his firing of James Comey proves [Trump] is a tin-pot tyrant.

And this:

Reporter arrested for asking HHS Tom Price this forbidden question on Trumpcare and domestic violence

A reporter in West Virginia was arrested on Tuesday after attempting to ask a Trump official about the administration's plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Dan Heyman, a reporter for Public News Service, says he asked Price repeatedly about whether domestic violence is considered a preexisting condition under the new GOP healthcare bill.

Dana Milbank:
Many of us feared during the campaign that Trump would be a threat to democracy, operating outside the Constitution, using demagoguery to turn white Americans against immigrants and religious and racial minorities. That hasn’t happened, though not for lack of trying on Trump’s part. His instincts are authoritarian, but the Trump presidency has been one pratfall after another. He has proved to be a blundering bully and an inept autocrat…. 

This president may think himself unassailable, but Americans are seeing him for what he is: a tin-pot tyrant.

Question for the Goopers out there:

Why do you continue to support this corrupt man?

Clearly, the radical right has lost it's collective mind. They don't see the obvious or, as I suspect, they are just too stupid and/or too corrupt to ever admit the obvious. Trumputin got rid of Comey when it became clear that Comey had the goods on Trump and his collection of slimy rich old white guys.
Never underestimate the willingness of the right to put party over country. They do it over and over again.

The only image you need of this administration is The Orange Man's press secretary hiding behind a damn bush.
President Happy Hands is not prepared for the crap storm that's coming.

It seems that the fringe right is doing everything it can to frame the issue in terms of the Clinton e-mails but he's made so many enemies, even in his own party that he's not going to weasel out of this.
If he tries, the goops know the midterms will be the night of the long knives.

Four more months Four more months

When's the last time any American saw a US president favor foreign media over his own US media in the White House? Never.

That's what the TiC (TRAITOR in CHIEF) did the other day. He favored the Russian media over America's! Unheard of, unless the president is being blackmailed by the Rooskies!

America needs to throw this bum out of office. My family didn't serve and bleed for this country so that a pig like him could hand it over to the Russians.

BlueBull, it's pretty obvious that the Goopers put party over country. Their continued support for the Disaster in Chief suggests that they'd support a hyena as POTUS as long as it had an "R" after its name.

Ducky, a cursory glance at right wing blogs and news sites shows that they're willing to stand by their MANiac, no matter how many times Trump reveals his mental instability.They believe there's nothing to any of this Trump-Russian scandal and it will all go away. Aren't they cute?

Clearwater, I've read that security officials are concerned that Trump allowed cameras and other devices into the Oval Office along with the Russians, that's usually not allowed even for American media, but Trump has a special place in his black little heart for the Russians doesn't he.

Trump is down to 36% approval with the American people. His supporters see nothing of particular importance in that.

How many listening devices did the Russian leave in the Oval Office?
