On Trump's Use of Rod Rosenstein As An Excuse To Fire Comey

Great analysis from Ace of Spades:
If this can be called a lie -- I'm not sure it's a "lie," straight-up, but more of a manipulation or insinuation/implication by careful wording -- it's a dumb one. It's like using a buddy as an alibi, telling your wife you were doing Church Work with him on Friday night, when you were really out at a tittybar getting drunk and stanky, without ever asking your buddy if he was cool being your alibi or even telling him you were using him as your alibi.  
It's very, very dumb to use Rod Rosenstein as an alibi without even clearing it with him first. A little unsolicited advice for Trump: What made Trump popular among many was the fact that he couldn't be bowed by the stultifying, suffocating politically-correct received-wisdom-of-the-elites phony government/media complex, and would often blurt out unpopular and harsh truths. (Also some unpopular and harsh lies, but let's stick to the truths.) 
And also: that he seemed like a brazen enough guy that he didn't lie like other typical Washington politicians. Not necessarily because he was a good man, but just because He Didn't Give a Fuck. 
And whatever the motive, that's refreshing. Invigorating. Bracing. Enlivening. Thrilling, even. 
Trump really should get back to that and stop with the dissembling. We've had enough of that. Lies are so tedious and so 2008-2016. 
And so... Beta. 
Alpha Males aren't supposed to lie, because they don't have to lie. They don't try to get their way through indirect, scheming, feminine methods like deception. They just to straight to the thing they want and do it.

Probably after this was written but I saw today Trump said he was going to fire him regardless of the report.
