James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

I’m generally happy to mock anyone who says “I couldn’t imagine that it would get this bad!” but hey. As far as I can tell, the President of the United States is publicly threatening the former Director of the FBI against testifying about their conversations, on the logic that the former may have secretly taped the latter.
Please no more Idiocracy comparisons; I would gladly trade Trump for President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.
I hope someone is talking to hardscrabble blue collar workers about how threatening the former FBI director will bring jobs back.
