Trump regrets not firing Comey when Obama was still in office: 'I should have fired him the day I won the primaries'

President Donald Trump displayed a deep misunderstanding of his own authority Tuesday, bemoaning that he didn't fire FBI Director James Comey back when he won the Republican primary, or at least after the Republican convention, in an interview with the Hill.

Barack Obama was still President during both of those events and vested with the power to fire Comey.

"If I did one mistake with Comey, I should have fired him before I got here. I should have fired him the day I won the primaries," Trump told the Hill. "I should have fired him right after the convention, say I don't want that guy. Or at least fired him the first day on the job. I would have been better off firing him or putting out a statement that I don't want him there when I get there."
Question to his sheep:
Ok, at what point do you walk away from this dumbfuckery to save face?

It would have been mere stupidity on Trump's part to discuss firing Comey prior to taking office if had he had fired him for just cause, but he only fired him because he fears being investigated, and he admitted that publicly after having previously lied about his motivation for firing him.

The people he's firing isn't the problem. It's the reason he's firing them.
