President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday night proving the tremendous hypocrisy the Democrats have displayed with their comical outrage over his firing of James Comey as Director of the FBI. Trump posted a video with a compilation of high-ranking Democrats bashing Comey for his handling of Hillary Clinton private server investigation.
Democrats, who not long ago demanded the ousting of Comey from his position with the FBI, are now apoplectic over Trump actually doing just that.
After conferring with the Justice Department, President Trump fired Comey Tuesday. Referring to the Comey dismissal as a “cover-up,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has now accused Trump of attempting to derail the FBI’s investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election and the conspiracy theory that Trump somehow colluded with the Russians prior to the November election.
It seems like only yesterday that Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, and others were virtually calling for Comey’s scalp.
In November, Schumer said, referring to Comey, “I do not have confidence in him any longer,” adding that he found Comey’s conduct “appalling.” Compare those statements with what he is saying now. In his press conference Tuesday, Schumer said he informed the President that in firing Comey, Trump was “making a big mistake.”
House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was another Comey hater. Last fall she stated, referring to Comey, that “maybe he’s not right for the job.” But that was then, this is now. This week Pelosi issued a written statement in which she stated, “The President’s sudden and brazen firing of the FBI Director raises the ghosts of some of the worst Executive Branch abuses.”
Speaking to the media in January, House Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) angrily said that James Comey FBI “has no credibility.” In a televised interview on NBC this week, she said it was terrible that Donald Trump fired Comey, yet that she would have fully supported Hillary Clinton doing the same thing if she had won the presidency.
Seizing on the Democrats comical 180 degree turn on the issue of Comey as FBI Director, President Trump tweeted:
“The Democrats should be ashamed,” and that “Dems have been complaining for months & months about Dir. Comey. Now that he has been fired they PRETEND to be aggrieved. Phony hypocrites!”

Hard to argue with that analysis. After listening to the fiery rhetoric of Lefties Schumer, Pelosi, Waters, Bernie Sanders, and Harry Reid, to name just a few, calling for Comey’s head, the hypocrisy of the Left has been laid bare.
