Democrats are so triggered because President Trump decided to keep James Comey as FBI director.
Liberals blamed Comey’s extended investigation into Hillary Clinton’s unsecured private email server for her election loss. Those hoping that he would get fired are now crying in their soup.
Comey was blasted by both Republicans and Democrats — and by Trump himself — for his botched handling of the Clinton email probe.

Unfortunately for Dems, firing him isn’t a better alternative, since that would clear the way for Trump to name a replacement. Comey was appointed by former president Barack Obama in 2013.
While some Trump supporters are skeptical of Comey, others say keeping him was wise because the FBI is in the middle of several investigations into the Clinton Foundation. Removing the FBI director now would disrupt that.
Besides, the president can fire the FBI director at any time, so why rock the boat at this juncture?
Not surprisingly, crybaby Hillary supporters on Twitter are not happy that Comey is staying.

Meanwhile, Twitter won’t forget the role Comey’s former boss, ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, played in the botched Clinton email probe.

@MarieHarf AG Lynch inserted herself into the election before Comey did by meeting with former President Clinton on the tarmac, get it right
