What's Wrong With Trump

I wrote this in early March but I think it is still relevant.

Trump Boasted About Firing Nut Job Comey to Russians:  A new bombshell report claims that during his meeting with Russian government officials last week, President Donald Trump boasted to them that he had just fired former FBI Director James Comey, whom he had described to the Russians as a “nut job.”  I think President Trump’s may be a bit confused on that one.  I don’t believe a "nut job” has anything to do with former FBI Director Comey, I’m pretty sure a…
