While Trump is playing golf and making Putin’s dreams come true, James Comey, who Trump thinks is a criminal, is reading the Declaration Of Independence with his family on this 4th of July.
The Comey family Declaration pieces (long ago made “authentic” by our kids burning the edges and soaking it in coffee). As always on July 4th, we will assign parts and read today as a family to remember the values at the heart of this great country. There really are “truths,” and we can never stop holding them.
Meanwhile, according to the White House Press Pool, as provided to PoliticusUSA, Trump is playing golf, “Departing the White House, the pool spotted POTUS wearing dark pants, a white shirt, and a white hat. The pool split from the rest of the motorcade at the turnoff to the Trump National Golf Club at 11:15 am. We are going to be holding in a wings restaurant in a strip mall down the street.”
Donald Trump thinks that James Comey should be in jail. In April, Trump called for the former FBI Director to be prosecuted. It is easy to see who the real patriot is on this 4th of July and it is not the man who is hiding behind the gates of a private golf club as he plans to give more of America’s standing in the world to Putin.
James Comey loves his country. The same can’t be said for the potentially illegitimate current occupant of the Oval Office.
