Here we go, blogging for the third day in a row. Alas, I'm talking about alternate realities, and not in a good way.

In most realities, the lead news story is that President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because 1) Comey did not show sufficient loyalty to Trump and/or 2) Trump wants to ice the Russia investigation. In the Faux News / alt-right "reality," the lead story is an allegation that Hilary Clinton asked a government to help one of the donors of the Clinton Foundation.

Now, mind you, the help requested was for a man running a microloan bank and his donations were to a not-for-profit foundation, not the Clintons personally. Despite this, Faux News was arguing that this is a "clear criminal violation." Sorry, Charlie, not so.

For the record - it is perfectly consistent to want Comey to be fired for interfering in an election and not want him to be fired to stop an investigation.
