The firing of FBI Director James Comey smells bad, especially after initial news reports that he had requested additional funds to continue with the investigation of alleged Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election.
President Trump is acting like a dictator. First, by trying to silence the media, which all dictators do, and second, by his constantly referring to the stories that the media do as “fake news.”
He has said it so many times that some people are starting to believe that media are only sources of lies and convenient truths. He is the only bearer of the truth, and no one else.
He seems convinced that running the United States government is similar to his reality TV shows and that he can do whatever he pleases without consulting with Congress or experts in the field.
It’s sad we have a president who is not making America great again, but making us look terrible around the world.
