President Donald Trump On His Firing Of James Comey (Extended Exclusive) | NBC Nightly News

Marc Knight
a democratic decision maker should run the fbi so they can correct all the criminal organizations of America.

good, a head needs to make changes, not be a yes man ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜˜

they seek more hostages thru the accusations program.
Marc Knight
I meant to compAre him to the central Illinois law people who are afraid of truck drivers and have every single country road as a state highway and are run by women who try to undermine democracy by stalking bicyclists. also Vietnam era poor white males are responsible.
Marc Knight
I mean who don't know the laws, or which aren't really right.
Marc Knight
comet was an ignorant warmongering sissy. how so, America is still full of women in positions of power, thankfully not at the national level also, I hope.
Peppermint Queen
This is the man that America wanted for their president.
We need to fire Trump... seriously... get him out of office...

Trump is a true son of America.

Rusher? WTF? Who talks like that?

Comey deserved to be fired. He let Hilary walk. Plain and simple. He had a chance to make sure the law applied to the elite as well and instead his actions showed that the law doesn't apply to everyone

This whole Russian investigation is just a way to destroy the Trump Administration. It insults the voters saying that the Russians "hacked" the election...... my problem with the supposed Russian hacks and leaks of Hilary's info is that no one is questioning what was contained in it that led to people not trusting Hilary, rather the attempt is aimed at shooting the alleged source. The establishment is clearly against Trump. The media slams him on a daily basis and has non stop since his campaign. I prefer Trump to Hilary for the fact that he wasn't backed by people like soros

1:08 But...But...He Just Admitted To Obstruction Of Justice Though...WTF

donald trump more like donald duck

I'd rather have someone like Donald Trump running our country than our prime minister Montgomery burns A.K.A Theresa may!

I had time to waste looking at that piece....
Question: Is it allowed for a so uneducated person, unable to build up a simple articulated sentence, to be elected President?
I am French (sorry about that) and do stupidly believe (again sorry, I am French) that a Country Representative should be, at a minimum, able to express himself in a comprehensive way... I mean, He's representing the U.S of A is He not? What kind of message to be interpreted, analysed and worked out of this kind of pre-school dialog?
Come on, America has, and always be America.
America gave the blood of its Children on the western coast of France back in 1945, something every child in France is not only educated about but also teach to respect.
Now, those same kids looking at this fantastic Country are now being said:
Screw u folks and thanks for the nice evening....
I am therefore wondering myself (but again, sorry, I am French), does it makes sense?
Are our cousins from over the ocean forgot our common history? Did they forgot the root of A(Capital A) merica?
Or is it that History is no more a valuable major in the education curriculum?
I'm done here.
No aim here at being confrontational.
Just a genuine and candide though.. (again, sorry about my French....)
NBC, while I"m sure someone will end up deleting this comment, you do realize you're really picking these questions, baiting him into saying actually ANYTHING, that could come out, or mean something "low key," while I appreciate you guys, lets take a step back and not try to make him out to be a weak man. Our President in the USA, will likely be re-elected, and more will come that are like him. Good things are happening, truly. While I know your business might be less profitable with him here, but get used to it tbh. Take notes from Shuttershot45. He's non political, but shows politics on a very raw level. Try that sometime.

Respect your President. ๐Ÿ™. why did you choose him in the first place if you didn't like him.
Psychedelic Vagabond
Putin also it's called russiaaaaa
Alexis Ali
He no good
hey I'm invited you correspondent on NBC to contact this named menette gnilo there is big scoop regarding that issue
Donald Trump gamed his way into the white house.
0:00 - 0:02 Look who's talking.
What a pig!
Trumpanzees get all excited when Comey investigates Hillary's emails but are butthurt when he tries to investigate Trump's ties to Russia and applaud his departure! Talk about hypocrisy!
Tauno Paaslane
how stupid is president can be
JaY Bird
media is a joke lol
Leslie Leon
Look at the man in the mirror
Good riddance
Stopwar Inukraine
On site management of the West and the world's leading automotive
companies I would have stopped supplying stylish and Executive cars in
Russia, because the cars they betray a pride, the Bolsheviks looted and
killed all their children rode on good cars and got acquainted with
pretty girls
Shar Ros
He is so stupid!!! Someone needs to stand up to him and stop worrying about being fired.. He has all the republican bullied.. AMERICA LOOKS DUMB!!
Paul Manafort and Flynn have both been required to declare themselves as "Foreign Agents" under US Constitutional Law due to taking money from the Russians.
mr.potato head
This is the face of a man who sold his soul to the devil....when you LIE to get what you want, it eventually comes back BIGLY
Patricia Boeglin
I believe in the blunt honesty of TRUMP! Anything else is FAKE NEWS!
Three men were arrested by Chinese authorities at the behest of Trump this morning for attempting to investigate labor conditions in an Ivanka-owned footwear plant in China where slave conditions take place ... this is the sort of America that is promised ...
Donald Trump is certainly one of the biggest criminals on the planet. He has betrayed his own country to the Russians and taken payments from the Chinese. He is corrupt.
he sound like his mouth is dry, like when you are nervous
not saying that honest people can't be nervous btw
vanessa torres
comey is a player . Like a chess game , Trump made his opponent think he had tapes so comey would not tell a lie --- that Trump was not under investigation . Had Comey known there was no tapes , he would make some vague response or let the public think that trump was under investigation ....
vanessa torres
this reporter keeps on interrupting .. reporter is more bossy as if he is the president ..

Here's a question, if Donald Trump is criminally charged, can the financial backers who are paying Trump monthly for the use of his name sake void their contract due to breach of contract due to criminal activity?
what a fuckwit journalist
Lester Holt's massive forehead functions as a helipad.....
Trump admitted he met with Deputy FBI Director, Rod Rosenstein, on the Monday before Comey was fired on Tuesday. It seems obvious it was to ask for a firing recommendation but that is something they could ask Trump about. I don't think Rosenstein needs to testify. AG Jeff Sessions testified that he had discussed firing Comey, supposedly, during the campaign (while Trump and Sessions were both still praising Comey for "doing the right thing"). The difference is Rosenstein wasn't part of the campaign.
Carlos Romero
I never saw this guy instigating obama. He all about Russia which is Fake News but he never try with obama on fast and Furious,, the Iran deal,or when obama set free the Cuban spies, ...Eh another phony journalist like most of them. They are inquisitive and demanding if it is conservative and even worst if it is white
Renee Blythe
Comey deserved to be fired. He acts like a wimp.
Ben -
> Knowing, there was no good time to do it.
Maybe that's because it's a bad idea...
Yen Chang
This is a seminal interview. It contains a cornucopia of material that will lead to this eventual demise. It's like he opened up several barrels of worms.

As they say in Australia, this man doesn't know if he is Arthur or Martha.
