The Democrat (and corporate media) response to Trump's firing of the FBI Director, James Comey is a casebook case of cognitive dissonance. They wanted Comey fired. They said so, repeatedly, vehemently. Trump fires Comey and they denounce Trump, repeatedly, vehemently. If one did not know this was real, one would think it was a comedy.
Maxine Waters went on MSNBC (this had to be a cakewalk, she must have thought). She denounced Trump's firing of Comey and in the next breath asserted that if Hillary Clinton had won the election she would have fired Comey. OK, Waters isn't the smartest cookie. But, she is just more obvious than the rest. Chuck Schumer engaged in the same nonsense, but tried to hide it with much talk of timing. So he is apparently fine with Trump firing Comey, but is seriously concerned by Trump's firing of Comey. You cannot make this stuff up.
The Democrat Party leadership are walking, talking caricatures. And the corporate media are no better. Slate magazine has a absurd article on the firing, which purportedly proves some nefarious marlarky. It supposedly does this by demonstrating that there are holes in the White House rationale for the firing. In order to do this, Slate focuses minutely on statements from the administration and finds some discrepancies: they weren't all reading from the same script, there are some variations of detail and emphasis. Thus, they are lying. That's the whole article. Nothing about the substantive issue. This is so funny. If everyone of them had said exactly the same things, Slate would have doubtless used this as proof that they were lying. At this point, the brouhaha is turning into a psychological textbook, adding confirmation bias: only being able to see evidence to prove one's preconceptions.
For the Democrats (and their PR team, aka the corporate media) whatever Trump does proves he is mad, bad and dangerous. Even when he does what they want, they jump up and down and shout: "Russia, Russia, Russia!"
