Trump claims he didn't try to fire Mueller because firing people 'is not good'

3 min read

This is a guy whose entire persona was based on the lame catchphrase “You’re fired!”

And here he was earlier today:

“I’m a student of history. I see what you get when you fire people and it is not good. But there would have been nothing wrong with firing him. Legally, I had absolute right to fire, but I never told Don McGahn to fire Mueller.”

Hey, most of us aren’t lawyers, but we do write things down. So there’s a record:

Sally Yates

James Comey

Omarosa Manigault-Newman

Michael Flynn

Preet Bharara

Anthony Scaramucci

Steve Bannon

David Shulkin

H.R. McMaster

Rex Tillerson


So, yeah, a lot of “not good” coming from this administration.





And who can forget the time he valiantly fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson … via tweet?


Hey asshole, just because you don’t have the guts to fire these people face to face doesn’t mean you didn’t do it. Trump’s cabinet is about two months away from staffing up through Kelly Services. But, hey, if Scott Baio and Gary Busey have both served as chief of staff by February 2020, I’ll win my $10,000 Vegas parlay. So … yay incompetence!

Fabulous!” “Hysterically funny!” “Cathartic!” These are just a few of the many accolades from readers of Aldous J. Pennyfarthing’s Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump. And now, the long-awaited sequel is here! Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump is hot off the digital press and available as a $2.99 download from Amazon. Buy there, or be square. (And while you’re doing that, grab yourself a copy of The Fierce, Fabulous [and Mostly Fictional] Adventures of Mike Ponce, America’s First Gay Vice President, also from AJP.)
