Trump Mocks ‘Cryin’ Chuck Schumer For Switching Positions On Comey

President Donald Trump mocked New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer for claiming lack of confidence in former FBI director James Comey and then acting upset when Trump fired him.

In a tweet posted late Tuesday evening, Trump referred to Schumer as ‘Cryin’ Chuck Schumer for reversing positions on Comey after Trump fired the FBI director earlier Tuesday. Trump made the decision based on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein. According to the president, the purpose of the firing is to reinvigorate “public trust and confidence.”

Trump followed his tweet at the end with the hashtag #draintheswamp, which is reminiscent of a campaign promise to remove graft and waste in Washington D.C.

Following word of Comey’s firing, Senate Minority Leader Schumer told the president, “with all due respect, you are making a big mistake.”

“This is part of a deeply troubling pattern from the Trump administration,” Schumer said later at a press conference. “This does not seem to be a coincidence.”

But back in November, Schumer stated that he had completely lost confidence in Comey’s abilities.

“I do not have confidence in him any longer,” he said. At the time, Schumer criticized Comey’s handling of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email probe as “appalling.”
