Another one bites the dust…
Andrew G. McCabe has resigned as the F.B.I.’s deputy director after months of childish taunts from President Trump, telling friends he felt pressure from the head of the bureau to leave. Also, let’s face it — he likely was a little disappointed that he hadn’t earned a nickname from the president yet (just one “Clinton Crony McCabe” Tweet is all he wanted!). Although he never got that nickname, he did warrant an asinine remark from Trump, who reportedly once laid into McCabe by “suggesting he ask his wife how it feels to be a loser.” The dig was an apparent reference to his wife, Jill McCabe, and her failed Democratic campaign for Virginia state legislature in 2015. “Okay, sir,” McCabe replied — at which point Twat… er, Trump… hung up.
Let’s see what the Internet thinks of all this, shall we?
Trump: “How’s it feel to be a loser, Andrew McCabe’s wife?”
She lost by 2,000 and you lost by 3,000,000. Shouldn’t she be asking you that?

“Deep Throat”, the @FBI agent who exposed President Nixon’s corruption and lies, was actually Associate Director William Felt, the second-in-command of the FBI.
Now President Trump fires McCabe, the second-in-command of the FBI? It’s as if Trump isn’t a scholar of history.

1) McCabe “steps” down
2) House cmte. votes to release memo
3) Trump punts on new Russia sanctions
And we’re supposed to believe these are coincidences? Uh paging Mr. Mueller – might be time to stop by for a house call.

First, he came for Comey, & they didn’t speak out b/c they were Trump apologists
Then, he came for McCabe, & they didn’t speak out b/c they were Trump apologists
Next, he’ll come for Rosestein & they won’t speak out b/c they’re Trump apologists
Last, he’ll come for Mueller…

Special Agent Andrew McCabe stood tall over the last 8 months, when small people were trying to tear down an institution we all depend on. He served with distinction for two decades. I wish Andy well. I also wish continued strength for the rest of the FBI. America needs you.
