With the shutdown, the media and the Deep State launch a subtle attack against Donald Trump by sneakily exonerating the Senate from responsibility.
Okay, I admit it. Saying James Comey is dishonest is pretty much like saying “dog bites man.” It’s no longer news. It’s simply the way the world – and Comey – works. Nevertheless, when you catch him in a special kind of lie that sees him attempting to play of his decades working for the federal government, you must call him out. Moreover, this particular lie is one that the dishonest media has been repeating ad nauseum.
The point of both the Comey and the media lie is to make it drill home that President Trump owns the shutdown and, by owning it, he is responsible for federal workers starving in the streets. And that’s how you end up with this Comey tweet from December 23:
FBI families will spend Christmas without a paycheck. This president promised Mexico would pay for the wall but innocent people are now paying the price for another lie. Our thoughts are with hardworking public servants and their families.

Although the media hasn’t disseminated that precise tweet, it’s going heavy on the message about poor, starving federal workers.
