Let’s Take a Moment to Laugh at Trump’s Pathetic Stunt He Scheduled During Comey’s Testimony

There are many reasons why I’m definitely proud of the fact that I’m on the right side of history in opposing Donald Trump and everything for which he stands.



However, another reason why I’m thrilled to not be someone who supports Trump is the simple fact that I don’t have to continually defend the endless stream of ridiculous nonsense emanating from him and his administration.

Simply analyzing all that’s been going on is, at times, incredibly exhausting — I can’t imagine having to legitimately try to defend this raging dumpster fire and the madman constantly dousing it with gasoline.

For instance, the rather pathetic stunt he’s scheduled for Thursday, the same day former FBI director James Comey is set to testify before Congress, where he’s agreed to give a speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference.

According to Time:

The Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference announced Tuesday that the president had agreed to address the annual gathering Thursday.

Faith and Freedom spokesman Lance Lemmonds says the president is expected to speak at 12:30 p.m. EDT.

Comey is scheduled to testify Thursday before the Senate intelligence committee beginning at 10 a.m. that day.

This came on the heels of earlier rumors indicating that Trump was possibly going to live-tweet during Comey’s testimony. Something that Republicans and administration officials are probably very relieved to hear won’t be happening. I’m sure the thought of Trump providing live commentary on Thursday terrified administration officials, his lawyers, and the entire Republican Party.

Not only would Trump live-tweeting his thoughts on what Comey was saying present an almost certain humiliating moment for all of those involved, but as incompetent as Trump is, his tendency to go on unhinged rants could have very well created some rather unwanted legal issues as well.



But this goes to show you just how scared Trump is of what Comey might say on Thursday. He’s clearly been pondering ways to create some sort of distraction, hoping to take attention off whatever the former head of the FBI might tell Congress.

Make no mistake about it, I fully expect Trump to still do whatever he can Thursday to distract people. Not only is one of his infamous Twitter tirades almost certain, even if much more tame than it would have been had he live-tweeted during Comey’s remarks, but I’m sure during his speech he’s going to hit the usual highlights: Call this all “FAKE NEWS”; say it’s just sour grapes by Hillary Clinton and Democrats; continue to push his ridiculous conspiracy about President Obama wiretapping him; and go through his usual talking points, painting himself as the hapless victim while everyone else is out to get him.

Because that’s what he always does.

  • I’d love to see a cartoon of either a staff member wrestling to get Trump’s phone out of his hand; or Trump, Conway, Miller, jostling to block cameras in the court where Comey is testifying. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
