LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Kody Fairfield

Twitter is ablaze following President Donald Trump‘s firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Republicans have jumped to defend the front lines, capitulating in order to find a substantive position to hold in favor of the firing, and the Democrats have gone “Looney Toons” leaving no hyperbole unused.

Most fascinating however are those who have compared Trump’s removal of Comey, of the former FBI Director was told by a television, to President Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal, and more specifically the Saturday Night Massacre.

Unfortunately for this version of histrionics, the facts substantiating the comparison of the two situations appear to be “alternative,” and the Richard Nixon Presidential Library wasn’t afraid to troll those who unwittingly used the juxtaposition.

Now the rebuttal from the Nixon Library doesn’t explain the investigation aspects of the comparison, but it was quite funny to see the establishment play the Twitter trolling game.

The Nixon Library did clarify that Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy AG William Ruckelshaus quit in protest during the Saturday Night Massacre, they were not fired like special prosecutor Archibald Cox was.
