THE BUZZ: Comey's out, Washington has a fit

Washington is in full nitwit mode, so it's pointless to expect anything rational out of the swamp for at least the next few weeks.

The reason for the latest round of hyperventilating buffoonery was triggered by President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Obviously, says the roaring mob, Trump is attempting to meddle in the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the election. The roar was especially strong from Democrats, who called it a “constitutional crisis.” Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said, “President Trump has catastrophically compromised the FBI's ongoing investigation of his own White House's ties to Russia.”

Never mind that these same Democrats, just a few days ago, were calling for Comey's ouster because he had obviously cost Hillary Clinton the election. And never mind that the new acting director of the FBI has said no one has tried to interfere with the investigation, which is still ongoing, and that there are more investigations in the House and Senate than there are hypocrites in Washington.

It's another opportunity to bring the loutish outsider to his knees and show him and his basketful of deplorable supporters who still runs the federal government. And such an opportunity, as some politician once said, should never be wasted.

Just to be clear, before everyone goes completely around the bend, the FBI director serves at the pleasure of the president. The president may fire him at any time, for any reason, or for no reason at all.

Just ask Bill Clinton.
