When Sean Spicer resigned this past week, Melissa McCarthy got her SNL pink slip too. Her 15 minutes of fame lasted about 6 months, but who’s counting. When you’re up, you’re up, Melissa. Otherwise, good riddance, ‘nasty woman’.
President Donald J. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey this evening. Let’s remember Jim….
From the National Review, “Why Yates Had to Go“.
It is a very simple proposition. Our Constitution vests all executive power — not some of it, all of it — in the president of the United States. Executive-branch officials do not have their own power. They are delegated by the president to execute his power. If they object to the president’s policies, their choice is clear: salute and enforce the president’s directives, or honorably resign. There is no third way.
No one knows this better than high-ranking officials of the Department of Justice. That is why President Trump was right to fire Acting Attorney General Sally Yates.
