The Daily Combover - March 20, 2017

Today was the day that anti-Trumpers were waiting for. Conspirator-at-Arms James Comey was going to tell the world that even he was done with the Trumpster.

Trump, meanwhile, wanted us all to know he wasn't worried in the least bit. So he went and did the only thing he enjoys, which is campaign for President.

Undeterred, Comey presented the FBI's gameplan. He spoke about the investigation into Russia-Trump collusion. He spoke about the lack of evidence supporting any type of anti-Trump wiretapping by President Barack Obama. And he answered an endless supply of questions by Republicans about the dastardly Leaker.

Trump was clearly happy with the latter because it provided his team a bounty of quotes that could be taken out of context in which they made it seem like the FBI'S Director was chiefly concerned with President Barack Obama's role in undermining the Presidency.

Read that again for a moment. And no, I'm not exaggerating. From Sean Spicer today:
Spicer took aim at former Obama administration officials, hinting that they were responsible for leaks to reporters about Flynn's conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The two discussed, among other things, sanctions against Russia that the Obama administration had imposed.
Flynn's conversations were picked up by routine surveillance the U.S. government does of Kislyak. The White House and some Republican members of Congress say that whoever revealed that fact to reporters illegally disclosed classified information.
"Not only was Gen. Flynn's identity made available. Director Comey refused to answer the question on whether or not he'd actually briefed President Obama on his phone calls and activities," Spicer said.
FBI Director James B. Comey told the House Intelligence Committee on Monday that agents have been investigating potential links since July.

To recap the Republican argument:
1. The issue here isn't the evidence against Trump, it's the Leaker undermining Trump.
2. President Obama hid appointees in the Executive Branch so they could unmask Flynn.
3. Therefore, President Obama is guilty of being Black while President. Oh wait, that's something different. The Leaker!

Trump, for his part, left us these pearls of wisdom this morning:
Some needs to teach Trump the difference between good touch and bad touch. Russia's contact with Secretary Clinton and the DNC during the campaign was most definitely an unwanted bad touch. Just like the bad touching Trump did to the 13 year old he raped.  Or his constant Ivanka groping.

Catch you on the flip side.
