Donald Trump pulled the illest most gangsta move of his presidency to date, by firing FBI Director, James Comey. Who is James Comey? Oh, he is only the FBI Director who just announced an investigation into Trump’s Russian business ties. Yes, that James Comey. The one with whom my lefty friends are still mad.

Get this: Trump did this under the recommendation of the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. Who is Jeff Sessions? He is only an honorable racist white man from Alabama, who hates the idea of black people voting, brown-skinned immigrants breathing air on American soil, and numerous other foul shit as any racist white man from Alabama would. Oh yeah, and he is also the United States Attorney General. You know, the guy tasked with giving the green light into investigations of police officers and police departments should they accidentally choke or shoot a black person to death. Thankfully, this rarely happens.

So, anyway, Sessions had to recuse himself from any investigation into Trump’s alleged Russian ties. Why? Because Sessions – who worked as a Trump campaign surrogate and the only U.S. Senator to endorse Trump for president – lied under oath about speaking to Russian officials during the campaign at his Senate confirmation hearing. Imagine that! A lying-ass racist president hiring a lying-ass racist Attorney General. I mean, who saw that coming?

Mind you, James Comey essentially helped Trump win the election by going public about an alleged reopening of an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. And of course, Comey made that announcement eleven days before the general election while failing to mention that Trump’s campaign was also under investigation. This shit is gangsta! Real fucking gangsta! Before firing him, Trump praised Comey for his mildly nauseating decision to suggest that he was reopening an investigation of Hillary’s emails that close to the election.

It was like, “Thanks for handing me the presidency on a silver platter, my guy. But… err, umm, you’re fired because you keep on talking about this Russia investigation shit. Yeah, son, you’re literally fucking up my cash flow.”

Again, this was absolutely gangsta. Yes, more gangsta than the scene in The Wire when Stringer Bell was taken out by Brother Mouzone and Omar Little.

Even so, what Trump did is also a threat to democracy.

With the decision to fire Comey, Trump went from being the President of the United States, to what he has always wanted to be: an authoritarian dictator the likes of Vladimir Putin.This isn’t good, folks.It betrays the very American ideals for which many Americans have fought and died to protect.

Aren’t We Supposed To Hate Comey?

To hear Trump tell it, he did Democrats a favor.

Trump suggesting that he did Democrats a favor by firing James Comey is a joke. A really bad joke. Seriously, it’s not funny. It’s infuriating. It insults the intelligence of any normal thinking human being. Why would he do Democrats and Hillary Clinton any favors? Trump and the Clintons were once cool, but come on. Not that Democrats are in love with Trump or ever will be. But nonetheless, that narrative is as ridiculous as someone cheating and then saying that they did it solely for the benefit of their significant other.

It’s like a guy saying, “I don’t even know why you’re mad about this. I only screwed her to help you out… because I knew it would bring you and me closer together, baby.” Nah, that ain’t gon’ work, son. Nope, never in a million years. No, unlike Trump’s supporters, we’re not stupid. Yes, and we all know that fat meat is indeed greasy. So no, ain’t none of us gon’ fall for the banana in the tailpipe.

To be sure, Trump has to go. If he were forced to leave office tomorrow, it would not be a day too soon. However, if anything, his firing of Comey perfectly sets the stage for just that. And to be honest, for me,Trump being run out of office must include a video of him getting pissed on by Russian prostitutes. Anything less wouldn’t be justice. This is why an independent prosecutor is imperative.

That said, I wish Trump would just quit doing fuckshit so we can go back to blaming Obama for the fuckshit that Trump does. If you remember, Trump accused Obama of wiretapping his phones in Trump Tower. He never produced any evidence to support his claim. Thankfully for us, because of the FBI investigation, Comey let us know that Trump’s claim was a lie.

It was yet another one of Trump’s lie – in a long list of lies – meant to deflect attention, from confirmed reports of Russia’s interference in America’s general election in 2016. Fun Fact: Russia hacked the elections. Be sure to tell a friend.

Currently, there’s a lot of misplaced anger directed at James Comey from some of my friends on the political left. In doing so, many miss the point that he was essentially fired for trying to take down the Trump administration. My guess is that if Hillary had won things would be all good.

Comey had just requested more money and resources to expand the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation. And, for that, and his relentless push for the truth, he got whacked like Salvatore “Big Pussy” Bonpensiero. It was so bad that Comey had to find out that he was fired after seeing it on the news. Trump never gave him the courtesy of a phone call or a formal meeting. Instead, the orange orangutan that occupies the White House sent his private bodyguard to hand deliver Comey’s dismissal letter to the FBI office.

You don’t have to feel sorry for Comey. However, while choosing to relish in the way this has played itself out for him, you’re missing the big picture. That would be, that what we’re witnessing is an erosion of democracy. As well as, the neutering of our Constitutional system of checks and balances. If anything, Trump’s firing of Comey shows that for all the bad we on the left may say about the former FBI Director, he wasn’t able to be bought by Trump and his Russian friends. That, my friends, counts for something in my book. But don’t worry, the American nightmare that is the Trump presidency will soon end.
