No one said President Donald Trump was afraid to fire someone, after all, he made a whole successful television career out of doing just that. Tonight, the President had an opportunity to fire someone that may have deserved being fired more than the worst of the worst contestants on The Apprentice could have ever deserved. That person was Sally Yates, the current acting Attorney General and Obama appointee.
Sally Yates declared that she would instruct the Justice Department not to defend any legal challenges to the President’s executive order temporarily halting refugee travel to the US from six Obama-identified high-terror-risk countries. President Trump wasted no time in firing this treasonous member of his cabinet, a hangover from the last Progressive Hate Machine’s cabinet of power.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer issued a statement saying that Yates, had “betrayed the Department of Justice” by refusing to enforce Trump’s order. She didn’t just betray the Department of Justice, she betrayed the whole notion of Rule of Law. If you are set against following the orders of your commander, The President of the United States, for whom the Attorney General serves, the proper thing is to resign, not to order the whole Justice Department to disobey the orders of a sitting President.
Spicer added, “Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.”
Yates will be replaced by the current U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, Dana Boente. Spicer concluded in his statement, “It is time to get serious about protecting our country. Calling for tougher vetting for individuals traveling from seven dangerous places is not extreme. It is reasonable and necessary to protect our country.”
Of course, progressives are comparing the firing of an unconfirmed acting Attorney General who refused to defend the President’s Executive Orders the same as Richard Nixon firing a confirmed Attorney General for investigating him for criminal activities.
I bet there will be another round of protests as well, so all you thousands of professional protesters should be happy to learn you will have more work coming your way in the near future. The question I have is this, how long before the opposition to the Progressive Hate Machine finally shows up, in numbers, to confront these professional protesters, to protest the professional protesters attempting to undermine the American republic and subvert the will of the voting people? How long?
