1PostSubject: The Tuesday Afternoon Massacre   Tue May 09, 2017 7:49 pm

Back in 1973, Tricky Dick screwed himself with the Saturday Night Massacre. Now it looks like Dipshit Donald has done the same with what might be called the Tuesday Afternoon Massacre.

According to Wiki: "The Saturday Night Massacre refers to U.S. President Richard Nixon's orders to fire independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox, and as a result the resignations of Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus on October 20, 1973, during the Watergate scandal."

And of course President Donald Trump seems to have done something similar with his firing of FBI Director Comey on May 9, 2017. As of 7 pm on that date, I've been watching the CNN coverage of this matter for several hours and learned very little information about exactly how and why Trump did this: just comments from both Democrtic and Republican politicians about how bizarre this is and suggestions about what should be done next.

So I'm creating this thread, assuming that I and other members of this group will have more to say as the facts continue to come in.
