President Trump called two-faced Schumer out for his fake outrage.
After Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Sen. Chuck Schumer turned on the indignation and the waterworks, and claimed the president was engaged in a “deeply troubling pattern” and called for a special prosecutor to look into the alleged connection between Russia and the Trump campaign.

“Are people going to suspect coverup,” the New York Democrat asked. “Absolutely.”
This is a complete reversal after Comey announced he was reopening the FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.
“I do not have confidence in him any longer,” he said in early November, and called the director’s decision “appalling.”
Trump wasn’t about to let that one stand. Tuesday night he took to Twitter and pointed out Schumer’s duplicity.
Cryin’ Chuck Schumer stated recently, “I do not have confidence in him (James Comey) any longer.” Then acts so indignant. #draintheswamp

Former House Speaker called the faux outrage for what it was: Six months after the election, the left still can’t get over the fact that “Trump won and Hillary lost.”

Schumer may have been taking his marching orders from Hollywood’s elite, who pour millions into Democratic campaign coffers. Many celebrities, along with liberal media outlets, called Trump’s dismissal of the FBI director Nixonian, in reference to former President Richard Nixon’s firing of special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox.
There was one glaring difference, however. Democrats didn’t call for Cox’s removal before Nixon fired him.
