    "Low information voters"?

    Exactly comrade!

    Voters which:

    *post daily anti-liberal non factual rants

    *believe Trump is pro middle class

    *attempt defending clear indefensible behavior

    *state the press is more trustworthy and honest in Russia

    *claim "family values" but continually defend a misogynistic "President".

    *defend the time period in which Andrew Jackson was alive.

    *Loosely apply terms "patriot", "freedom", "constitution" when they've demonstrated clearly they don't understand its true meaning.

    *continue enabling the utter disaster currently occupying the White Asylum.

    *continually claiming "fake news" when citing Breitbart, Drudge, the National Enquirer, Faux News and wing-nut a.m. talk radio as legitimate sources

    *defend clear acts of treason and coercion with a foreign government based upon pure hatred of liberals

    *posting daily without possessing an inkling of understanding the subject matter at the fruitless attempts of defending their supreme leader

    *Make statements such as..."They now double down on their losing message about how despicable they think President Trump is". Current approval rating 36%-40% and declining comrade!

    This is just weird. Comey is 6'8.' How is going to hide in the curtains? Why would he even admit to such odd behavior? It makes him look like a clown.

    This all makes his firing seem justified. The FBI director is not a separate branch of government. He works for the president. What boss wouldn't fire someone who is avoiding interaction by hiding in the curtains? If you really feel that way, why not take the moral high road and resign?

    I have a really hard time picturing the FBI director trying to avoid interaction with the president - let alone the hiding the the curtains bit. I hope for the sake of his reputation this is just more fake news.

    Draining the swamp needs to start in the White House. It's a shame that when Donald is finally flushed out with the sludge, that we will have a Donald enabler taking over. Too bad we can't impeach and remove both Donald and all the rest of the menagerie there.

    Happy Valley: You proved my point! Once again you went off on how terrible you think President Trump is! Like going in to brand X to buy a new car and instead of the salesman explaining the features advantages and benefits of their brand, they go off on their competition, explaining why they think their competitor suck and wonder why their competition sells cars and they don't! Thanks for making my point!

    I will agree with T. Barker on this one point - Clinton totally ignored the middle-class vote. She was too busy singing to the choir and basking in the adulation from her base to even think of courting white-male, middle-class voters. In her mind, this was more of a coronation than an election.

    Thid says: "Instead of offering voters ANY reason to vote for Democrats, their only message was and still is Trump is terrible and his supporters are "deplorable" (to quote Hillary). They now double down on their losing message about how despicable they think President Trump is and still offer no reason to vote for them!"

    Not to worry Donald is doing the heavy lifting for them, by proving the democrats correct.
    He is a terrible president, a despicable person of low moral values, and ethically blind.

    Not to worry, he's not going to be able to run again, when he brings down most of the GOP with him.

    How's that wall coming?
    Golf on Donald, works for suckers.

    Low information voters? Something tells me Clinton got those votes! The middle class went for President Trump en masse and was the difference in this election. You can call them "low information voters" but they are the ones who put President Trump in the white house in spite of Hollywood elites and the fake news media! Maybe the arrogance of the left hurt them in the election? Cost them both houses of congress, the white house and about 1000 state and local offices as well! Will liberals ever learn? Speaking of "low information voters" Instead of offering voters ANY reason to vote for Democrats, their only message was and still is Trump is terrible and his supporters are "deplorable" (to quote Hillary). They now double down on their losing message about how despicable they think President Trump is and still offer no reason to vote for them! With that message, Democrats (the real low information crowd) will continue to lose elections and then wonder why!

    Commenter88 said: "Something about this hiding behavior by Comey actually substantiates the need for dismissing him. They obviously did not like each other to the point Comey could not fulfill his obligations with professionalism."

    Actually it's because Comely understands the law and professionalism, the child president doesn't.

    Comey repeatedly told Donald that he couldn't discuss it with him, and he didn't listen and insisted on trying to bully Comey.

    Comey avoided the childish president because he knew he would be held responsible for his actions while Donald would just be excused by his loyalists.

    Even with all the info before them they blame Comey.

    Spicer totally hid in the bushes many, many in the press watched this unfold, but yeah if Donald says fake, his loyalists only hear his voice.

    @Thid Barker -

    "An ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Sunday found that 96% of Trump supporters say that they would vote for him again".

    Never stated nor implied the low information demographic would not continue supporting Trump.

    "Moreover, the poll indicates that Trump could win the popular vote if the 2016 electorate were to vote a second time".

    Moreover, absolute utter nonsense comrade! Mathematically impossible to make up over 3 million votes. Even when applying extremist, Trump enabling math! Again. One may desire obtaining factual information prior to posting. Country before party comrade!

    "I paid no attention to your attempts at personal attacks against me! I consider the source! Have a great day"!

    What specifically do you call the retort you supplied comrade? Apparently you do pay attention! Suggestion. Pay as much attention to the embarrassment currently occupying the White Asylum as you do with the low information daily anti-liberal rants. Thank you!

    Comey is a political animal with his finger in the wind. If Clinton had been elected, he would have found a way to re-open (yet again) the email investigation so she couldn't fire him without Repbulicans howling.

    Something about this hiding behavior by Comey actually substantiates the need for dismissing him. They obviously did not like each other to the point Comey could not fulfill his obligations with professionalism. I doubt Russia had anything to do with his dismissal.

    BTW, It has been proven that Sean Spicer never "hid" in the bushes and that it was a fabrication of MSNBC. There is a term Trump uses to describe this kind of story. It's on the tip of my tongue.

    "In spite of all the left's baseless attacks ( with no evidence) on President Trump, he is not only surviving well, but his supporters are growing according to polls and surveys"!

    Life in Victor...Possibly one individual from the extremist, non college educated Trump enabling faction could obtain factual information prior to the daily posting of gross misinformation. Current Trump approval ratings are 34%-40% and declining hourly comrade! One would obviously would have to put down the Breitbart, Drudge, National Enquirer and all Russian "newspapers" to obtain this information!

    "96% of those who voted for him say they would vote for him again along with about 3 million Americans who voted for Hillary! You are still losing, liberals! Everyday fewer people believe anything you and your fake news media says".

    Continue fooling yourself comrade! Factual information clearly speaks for itself. Furthermore. Feel free to pass along your cited source material. Meanwhile. Keep digging comrade! #Countrybeforeparty

    "Putin was joking with his own politicians that he was mad his ambassador, Lavrov, hadn't relayed this supposed secret intelligence that the American media was whining about that Trump gave him. During the old Soviet Union, citizens had to get their news from the US to find out the truth. These days we have to have to get it from Russia because of how corrupt our phony media has become".

    Nice try comrade. Beyond repulsive and treasonous. Replace the current embarrassment in the White Asylum with President Obama. Certain the daily nauseating posts would offer the identical defense. Especially if the college educated liberal demographic was relying on foreign press. Mainly the Russian press! Furthermore. You may desire to research prior to posting, however I will not be holding my breath. There is absolutely zero free press in Russia comrade! One may also desire researching "religious liberties" throughout Russia. It also does not exist! Ask those of the Jehovah's Witnesses denomination. Thank you. #Countrybeforeparty!

    "he misfired on investigating the Clinton Uranium deal"

    This comment alone is enough to give pause to your opinions.

    There is no 'clinton uranium deal'. Snopes, factcheck and politifact have all reduced this claim to the paranoid fabrication that it is.

    Without question, clinton has no end of flaws, but when you have to resort to fabricating outrage about her in order you bolster your position, your credibility heads for the exit.

    The fact that Comey would go to such lengths to avoid Trump speaks volumes, about Comey AND Trump. He must have been so horrifically upset by the situation. Unlike many here, however, I think Comey DID do his job. He upset everyone, and that says to me that he must have been doing something right. I am mad at him for doing what he did days before the election, because look at the mess we're in now, and I think his actions influenced it more than we know.

    In spite of the seriousness of the situation, and it is dead serious, I do have to say that I found some of the memes hilarious. The situation is so dire that I don't think it hurts to have a bit of fun with it sometimes. Otherwise we'd all end up pulling our hair out all the time.

    Every day another revelation of how poorly Comey had acted. His critics were bipartisan for months, including Colbert's liberal audience who cheered his removal, that is until they got their minds straight when the left decided to play politics with this silly Russian "scandal".

    Putin was joking with his own politicians that he was mad his ambassador, Lavrov, hadn't relayed this supposed secret intelligence that the American media was whining about that Trump gave him.

    During the old Soviet Union, citizens had to get their news from the US to find out the truth. These days we have to have to get it from Russia because of how corrupt our phony media has become.

    @Patriot

    You're right right that it was the right thing to fire Comey.

    The problem here is when Trump did it, why he said he did it, and how he went about doing it. All of which were unethical, incompetent, and self serving.

    Remember that Trump thought Comey was doing a great job when his mistakes benefited himself.

    Trump is embarrassing those of us who identify as conservative. Someone needs to tell him it's time to step aside and let Pence take over.

    Attention extremist, low information Trump enablers and self-proclaimed "Patriots".

    "I was an FBI senior executive until September 2016 when I retired. I served at the Special Agent in Charge and Assistant Director levels under Jim Comey's direction. There was no better leader in the US government, no public official of greater integrity, or independence. This was a purely political act and thus begins the deconstruction of an independent institution that was reformed in the aftermath of Watergate, and the Church and Pike Commissions to.
    I will say this with total prejudice: Outrage, disgust, hatred, disappointment....nothing I write can truly express my anger, but we, all of us, will rue this day. The cult of personality has trumped truth, justice and the American way".

    Comey was fired becauase he didn't do his job...like any other corporation. Back in July Comey had the chance to do the right thing and recommend a criminal referral for Hillary after detailing all her long list of corruption ...but stead...he caved into political pressure to just let her go through. I think the man should have been fired back in July. It is the job of the FBI director to separate himself from politics and simply investigate and present the facts with proof to the AG. That's it. Done. Comey got lost in the weeds and each fresh move was a fresh mistake. This isn't the only sin of Comey -- he misfired on investigating the Clinton Foundation -- he misfired on investigating the Clinton Uranium deal -- he misfired on investigating the Susan Rice unmasking crimes as well as the unmasking of General Flynn. And the list goes on and on... Comey was a mixture of incompetent and I think corrupt.
