One news story dominated last week while Pat Gray was away. On Monday’s “Pat & Stu,” the guys caught up on the news that Pat missed, including the big story about former FBI director James Comey getting fired.
“What I found most interesting about the Comey firing was the Democrat reaction to it, which was so hysterical as to be absurd,” Pat said. Liberals decried President Donald Trump’s decision as everything from a “coup” to “treason” to a “constitutional crisis.”
Stu Burguiere pointed out that even though Democrats overreacted, the decision to fire Comey out of nowhere was strange. Trump praised Comey multiple times for his involvement in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails, and Comey’s decision to announce that the investigation had been re-opened shortly before the election is often credited with boosting Trump’s win.
Trump initially claimed in his letter firing Comey that he was following recommendations from the Department of Justice; however, the president shortly after contradicted himself, saying he had intended to fire Comey all along.
The guys also delved into whether or not Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a good substitute for Sean Spicer and discussed her unfounded claim that “countless” FBI officials had complained about Comey.
