The FBI was left scrambling after the FBI director, James Comey, was fired by Donald Trump on Tuesday night. And while Trump’s abrupt firing didn’t stun the FBI, it certainly struck the fear inside of the White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday night.
Before his scheduled press conference, Spicer spent most of his time staking out behind bushes before instructing executive assistant Janet Montesi to address the media. She stated that Sean Spicer was going to answer questions from the media. However, no one was allowed to record video during the press conference.
Shortly after, Sean Spicer emerged from the depths of the bushes and ordered the lights to be shut off. After Spicer was granted darkness, dozens of reporters spent ten minutes asking huge waves of questions.
It seems like one of the Trump Administrations accomplishments now include taking the term “beating around the bush” to the next level. This latest development is a curious one. Why was Sean Spicer was too afraid to address the situation on Tuesday and does anyone in the Trump Administration even know what’s actually happening in the Oval Office at this point?
It’s incredible to see The United States of America conducting interviews in the dark to explain controversial choices. Only time will tell, but it seems like the Trump Administration is once again cycling into pointless and arrogant turmoil. It’s clear that Trump isn’t happy about Comey’s loyalty to his duty and his country. As the investigation into ties accelerated, it seems that Trump was left with no other choice than to lose patience with the former FBI director.
It looks more and more like Trump is panicking as the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The situation has developed into a circumstance where Comey began receiving daily updates on the investigation leaving no surprises by the FBI to Comey being axed. Stay tuned for more updates.
