The First Law of Trumpodynamics is, of course, the law that for every Donald Trump tweet there is an opposite tweet from earlier that contradicts it. Only this time it’s contradicted not by a tweet but by an interview on national television that virtually everyone has seen. Here’s the tweet from yesterday, which he vomited out after seeing James Comey on the Today show:
Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!

Does he think that video doesn’t exist? That no one remembers? No, he’s just doing what Trump always does. Unlike Humpty Dumpty, who merely thought that words meant whatever he declared them to mean, Trumpty Dumpty thinks that reality is whatever he says it is. He’s the guy who, if his wife walked in on him and caught him having sex with another woman, would deny that he was doing the very thing he was caught doing, and say, “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?”
