Trump’s unfathomable bizarre behavior proves he is frightened of things the Russia-connection investigations might expose. His “way” of dealing with this threat was also irrational– create a firestorm by firing Comey.
Trump suffers from a level of ego-fed grandiosity past all reckoning. I mean who does this? Who asks for loyalty pledges? F.B.I. Director James Comey refused to pledge loyalty to Trump. He had already publicly rebuked some of Trump’s outright lies and wanted to intensify the FBI’s investigation.
