America has yet to hear the last of the left and media’s outrage over the firing of James Comey. There’s a sense that those against President Trump feel like they’re finally in a position of that “gotcha” piece of the puzzle that will remove him from office. Unfortunately, no one has produced a single piece of legal evidence that would support that desire.
The insulting and insinuating have gotten so bad that MSNBC asked Tom Brokaw, a reporter who was around for a real presidential scandal to weigh on what he thought about the comparisons between President Trump and former President’s who’ve been impeached for actual illegal activities.

Watch as the seasoned journalist brings down the house:
Via The Blaze:
Speaking on her MSNBC show Thursday, NBC News anchor Andrea Mitchell noted the “Nixonian” analogies being used by the media and others, mostly Democrats, who are comparing what Trump did in firing Comey to some of the criminal acts Nixon committed as president, such as the Watergate scandal.
But Brokaw disagreed with the comparison. He also cautioned Mitchell and others in the mainstream media in assuming facts that don’t exist in Trump’s firing of Comey.
“One of the things that I learned during Watergate … is that we dealt with it every day on a factual basis. There was not a lot of speculation. Now, of course, the media landscape has changed a lot, and we have that going on 24/7,” Brokaw explained. “I do think, however, that all of us as reporters wherever we are … have to take a deep breath and say let’s deal with the facts as we know them at this point.”
For the 77-year-old journalist, covering Comey’s firing comes down to just one simple task: “Our obligation I think is to sort it out, truth from fact, and deal with the truth.”
Watch Brokaw’s comments below:
He seems to have more words for his fellow journalists than he does for the President or the American people. He doesn’t come right out and say that he’s displeased with how far journalists have fallen, but you do get that distinct impression. It should kinda go without saying that those tasked with reporting the news should deal with fact instead of liberal supposition.
Basically, he’s saying to the liberal media that they need to do their job and leave the politics up to the politicians. Here’s hoping they listen.
