They are laughing at it on the Jimmy Kimmel show. The Apprentice star sacks the head of the FBI ‘live’.

This is incredible. If Trump isn’t impeached then America is spiralling out of control and nothing can really describe how unprecedented this is.

For the record I think they are already far down this road already and he will remain in power for some time. The idea of checks and balances is a liberal myth, a salve to soothe the disconsolate ego as the country moves from oligarchy to dictatorship.

This is like the Truman Show in reverse without a cheesy ending, with an electorate so confused befuddled and stoned on ‘fake news’ they’ll probably rush to his defence.

As John Cassidy writes: “With Comey out of the way, Trump can now pick his own man (or woman) to run the Bureau, and this person will have the authority to close down that investigation.”

This is a country now resting on the FBI as the progressive restraint on executive power.

There are allegedly – two Trump-Russia grand juries currently running.

Who knew?
