Krauthammer: Dem Hypocrisy on Comey Not Surprising, ‘These People Are Hypocrites from the Day of Their Birth’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that it was “surprising” that President Trump was surprised at the “hypocrisy of the Democrats” over Jame’s Comey’s firing given that “These people are hypocrites from the day of their birth. It’s in their DNA. That’s how they function.”

Krauthammer said, “I think trump is totally sincere in his attacks, one after the other, on the hypocrisy of the Democrats, but it’s surprising that he should be surprised. These people are hypocrites from the day of their birth. It’s in their DNA. That’s how they function. It was to be expected. Yes, you say you want Comey to be fired one day, and then as soon as he gets fired, you attack the man who does it, but that’s normal.”

He added, “I assume that calculation was, Democrats don’t like this guy. They accuse him of costing Hillary the election, so there won’t be much of a blowback. Of course they will. Democrats are looking for any excuse to say that there’s a great collusion conspiracy and this was all being done in defense of that conspiracy, which I think remains implausible, because if that was the intent of the Trump administration, it’s a colossal mistake.”
