Donald Trump took a meeting with Democratic Congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer on Tuesday to throw a temper tantrum over getting funding for his ego-wall. Trump threatened to shut the government down over the wall. Pelosi stood up to Trump to his face, then walked out, put her sunglasses on, and was on her way.
The short version goes like this: Trump had a really bad day.
So, naturally, he took to Twitter to complain about former FBI Director James Comey again. Comey has been a registered Republican for most of his adult life but in 2016, he revealed that he’s unaffiliated. He has contributed to John McCain’s campaign as well as Mitt Romney’s.
Trump is upset over Comey’s recent comments in which he said that “Democrats have to win” the 2020 presidential election.
“I can tell you that all of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lying stops on Jan. 20, 2021,” Comey said.
Trump, an unindicted co-conspirator, targeted Comey over his remarks.
“James Comey just totally exposed his partisan stance by urging his fellow Democrats to take back the White House in 2020,” It tweeted. “In other words, he is and has been a Democrat. Comey had no right heading the FBI at any time, but especially after his mind exploded!”

The reaction on Twitter was swift.
James Comey was a registered Republican until you shat on that party and turned it into a sickening swamp of sycophantic eunuchs. You are demented. Resign.

But James Comey is no longer at the FBI and can now urge people to vote in any way he chooses.

1. Comey, a Republican, helped you win the election.
2. Comey, the human, realized that was a huge mistake.

Comey is taller and better looking than you.

No, this is an independent, highly successful, intelligent person in law enforcement warning the country, based on evidence, that we are in peril with you at the helm. Bless him.

In which 45 expects the man he fired and publicly humiliated to now be on his side.

Trump, for the record, registered as a Republican in 1987 and since that time has changed his party affiliation five times.
