Much of the southeastern United States is preparing this weekend for the onslaught of Hurricane Dorian, a massive system that’s inching only ever closer as the weekend gets underway. President Donald Trump, meanwhile, is sticking to tweeting about his feud with figures like former FBI Director James Comey, who has now been a private citizen for more than two years following Trump firing him. This Saturday, he also targeted actress Debra Messing, complaining that although in the “good old days,” she’d even “called me sir” — now she opposed his administration. Remember, this is the president of the United States tweeting this belligerence.
About Messing, he complained:
‘I have not forgotten that when it was announced that I was going to do The Apprentice, and when it then became a big hit, helping NBC’s failed lineup greatly, @DebraMessing came up to me at an Upfront & profusely thanked me, even calling me “Sir.” How times have changed!’
About Comey, Trump tweeted quotes this weekend like:
‘“James Comey has been rebuked at the highest level, with much more to come. An IG Report doesn’t get any stronger, calling him dangerous, insubordinate. THANK GOODNESS THAT DONALD TRUMP WAS ELECTED, BECAUSE IF HE WASN’T ELECTED, THESE PEOPLE WOULD STILL BE IN POWER. Two more reports are coming. Comey very vulnerable. But where is the Supreme Court. Where is Justice Roberts? If you lie to a court, you should be held in contempt. So, if you abused the FISA, you must be held accountable. I hope Justice Roberts will take action.” Jason Chaffetz, Fox’
To be clear — the inspector general’s office covering the Justice Department concluded that Comey had not committed any crimes, and Trump’s own Justice Department thereby declined to bring a case. Still — while other issues ranging from Dorian to the ongoing trade war with China continue to rage, Trump sticks to his routine of regularly getting on Twitter to scream about how great it is that he got elected and how supposedly horrible his political opponents really are.
Trump also shared a quote in favor of his twisted mindset of how hos import taxes supposedly won’t affect American business after all. To be clear, however — just because the Chinese currency is devauled, that doesn’t mean that American interests aren’t also having to cough up the cost of import taxes when they’re the ones doing the importing.
