Who's the real "nut job"?

By John Cassidy
May 20, 2017

... calling Comey a “nut job” was startling. It was no secret that he didn’t like Comey — a couple of days after dismissing him, he publicly referred to him as “a showboat” and “a grandstander” — but Trump here wasn’t shooting the breeze with one of his billionaire friends, or golf buddies, or even NBC News’s Lester Holt. He was talking, during an official meeting from which he had barred the American news media, to two representatives of a foreign government that tried to disrupt last year’s U.S. election ...

... it is hard to read the remarks and not conclude that Trump, in offing Comey, had intended to shut down the Russia probe—or, at the very minimum, to influence it in such a way that his political prospects would be improved.

And ... It provided more evidence .. that he is .. ignorant about .. the American political system ... After he fired Comey, did he really believe that people in Washington .. would .. quietly .. accept such a blatant abuse of .. authority?

Evidently, Trump did think this, and so did many .. people around him ...
