Trump Tried Defending His Name By Claiming He Didn’t Obstruct Justice When Firing Comey, It Backfired
Earlier this week Donald Trump took to Twitter where he claimed he didn’t fire former FBI Director James Comey because of the Russia investigation, suggesting he did not obstruct justice.
Trump instead tried blaming the media for spreading false narratives that he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation.
“Not that it matters but I never fired James Comey because of Russia! The Corrupt Mainstream Media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!”

But people are not dumb to fall for Trump’s lies and they called him out for it.
Donald either has Dementia or he's doing a great job pretending He has Dementia. #WorldsDumbestPOTUS

But what are you going to do to improve the country you were apparently elected to lead? So far you just keep tweeting out nothingness.

Oh it definitely matters because you said on national TV that you fired him because of Russia. How terrible of the corrupt mainstream media to just air WHAT YOU ACTUALLY SAID. You act very very guilty and some of your supporters are now starting to see it.

I know, right? I mean just because you said it, on the record and taped it at least twice, doesn't mean it's true. Don't people know that you lie, yet? The media knows you never tell the truth, but they want to use your words against you, now? Is that fair?

You admitted it twice, once with Lester Holy and once to the Russians in the Oval Office. #TrumpsALiar

You went on national television and admitted to Lester Holt that you fired Comey because of “Russia!” You know they keep recordings of this stuff, right?

I guess Trump forgot that technology exists and he went on national television and admitted to firing Comey because of Russia.
