Trump Rips Schumer For Hypocrisy On Comey. He’s Right. Here’s The Proof.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to mock Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s response to the termination of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday night, framing the New York Democrat as hypocritical.

Trump’s firing of Comey was a “big mistake,” said Schumer afterwards, hyping the innuendo-laden and evidence-free narrative of 2016’s president election being compromised by a conspiracy of subversion executed by Trump’s political team and the Russian government.

“Why now?” asked Schumer of Comey’s removal, casting Trump as either complicit with or compromised by the Russian state. “Were these investigations getting too close to home for the president?”

Late last year, however, Schumer essentially called for Comey’s termination.

“I do not have confidence in him any longer,” said Schumer of Comey during a November interview with Bloomberg, days before the presidential election. He described Comey’s decision to speak publicly of an FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s negligent handling of classified information as “appalling.”

Trump’s branding of Schumer as “Cryin’ Chuck” draws on early mockery of the Democrats’ top senator in January, when Schumer feigned a crying spell with faux emotionalism in response to the president’s executive order blocking admission of foreigners who had recently visited Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen.

Using Muslims as human props for his speech calling for endless admission of migrants and refugees from the failed Muslim-majority state of Syria, Schumer pretended to cry while waxing emotional over the Statue of Liberty’s message.
