Trump Took To Twitter To Rant And Try To Justify Firing Comey (Naturally), But The Internet Isn’t Having It

In what has certainly been an eventful past 24 hours (oh jeez, it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet, has it) and what will definitely be the start to an eventful week, as everyone well knows by now Donald Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey, in the middle of an ongoing investigation as to his administration’s ties to Russia. A sitting United States president has fired the person in charge of investigating him for treason. And people are pissed off.

Democrats, led by Senator Chuck Schumer, are calling for an independent investigation into the President’s scandal, and Trump isn’t helping matters by lashing out on Twitter when this is the time he really, really needs to STFU.

After tweeting about “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” Tuesday night, Trump was back at it bright and early Wednesday morning — once again deflecting blame on Democrats, as he is wont to do. (Although amazingly, he managed to not specifically name Hillary or Obama this time.)

Don’t worry, he also rewteeted the Drudge Report a couple of times in there, including a piece about how Mexico was the second deadliest country in 2016, lest you think he’s totally given up on his priorities.

But people aren’t having it. As Trump tweeted away obliviously, the top trending topic on Wednesday morning was #impeachTrumpnow, with trends such as “After Trump,” “Comey’s Firing,” and “Donald Trump Is Lying Again” not far behind. The American people demand action and answers, and here is some of what they’re saying.

Buckle in folks, because it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
