Just heard this. What a miserable ass-covering piece of shit. Also petty, orange, and un-POTUS.

This is really big news. It's time to raise hell for an independent investigation and not let up.

To be replaced by Mike Cernovich, Newt or Don Jr. Stay tuned!

That seems really ungrateful considering how Comey won the election for him. Sad.

Must be nice to be able to fire the guy who's about to get you in big trouble.

I feel sick to my stomach. I wasn't a huge fan of Comey, but this firing does not bode well. I wonder who Trump will try to replace him with. And whether senate Republicans will show any spine.

They've already shown that they will not. This is what that gets us.

I think we should delete this thread, as this news has already appeared in the new politics thread and is going to dominate it forever.

Firing Comey isn't the problem as he had little credibility left. The real issue who his successor will be and how far Trump's tiny hands will be up the successor's ass.

So, like Mitt Romney, Trump likes firing people.
