Trump Derangement Hysteria

Group think of the most blatant partisan sort.

Is President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey like the “Saturday Night Massacre” in October 1973, when President Nixon sought to fire Archibald Cox, the Watergate special prosecutor? Yes, say leading Democrats, most notably David Axelrod, President Obama’s campaign strategist, Senator Elizabeth Warren, waiting in the wings for 2020, the ever-voluble Senator Chuck Schumer and their paper of record the New York Times. The Times opined the next day that the Saturday Night Massacre was “the obvious historical parallel to Mr. Trump’s action.”

When you look at the record, however, all this begins to look like a politically partisan effort to whip up mass hysteria.
