Summer is just weeks away, but the snow keeps getting deeper in D.C.

Very presidential, I must say. Also very presidential:
Washington (CNN)A little past 5 p.m. Tuesday, a black Ford Taurus slowed to a stop just outside FBI headquarters in Washington and dispatched a white-haired man in a dark suit.He emerged from the car alone, a manila folder in his right hand, and walked slowly toward the agency’s appointment gate. Passers-by paid little notice.But Keith Schiller, President Donald Trump’s pugnacious former bodyguard who now sits sentry outside the Oval Office doors, was at the law enforcement agency armed with a bombshell message from his longtime boss to FBI Director James Comey: “You are hereby terminated and removed from office.”
Three down and how many to go? Sally Yates was investigating Donald Trump’s Russia connection. Preet Bharara was investigating Donald Trump’s Russia connection. James Comey was investigating Donald Trump’s Russia connection. All gone. It’s not quite the Night of the Long Knives, but it’s enough to get the attention of a 21st century American audience. Not as much fun as the Golden Shower, but still a treat watching the drama unfold:
The collective recoil against the move prompted urgent meetings among Trump’s aides to manage the fallout. Hours after telling reporters that the White House would have no additional comment beyond Trump’s own words, top aides were marched to television cameras on the North Lawn to explain the decision.One source familiar with the President’s reaction to TV coverage of the Comey firing told CNN that Trump was upset because he perceived that nobody was defending him on the cable networks. So he dispatched top communications aides Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders to appear on television to defend the White House, the source said.Spicer, sandwiched in the dark between a gaggle of reporters and a large shrub on the White House driveway, described Trump’s decision as arriving only after a long memo from the deputy attorney general, which Spicer said was delivered Tuesday, detailing Comey’s shortcomings on investigating Clinton’s emails.
Shit, man. If I had known that nobody was defending the Snowflake-in-Chief, I would have stepped up and said a good word for the dude. All they needed to do was to ask. What does this remind me of?
“The bombardier, the bombardier,” Dobbs answered in a cry when Yossarian spoke. “He doesn’t answer, he doesn’t answer. Help the bombardier, help the bombardier.”
“I’m the bombardier,” Yossarian cried back at him. “I’m the bombardier. I’m all right. I’m all right.” “Then help him, help him,” Dobbs begged. “Help him, help him.”
And Snowden lay dying in back.

Yes, it has come to that.
