‘Must-See TV’: Free Drinks and Canceled Meetings for Comey’s Testimony

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/06/07/business/media/comey-testimony-tv.html

Enterprising establishments have been quick to capitalize on the Super Bowl-like atmosphere. At Union Pub in Washington, a sports bar steps from the Hart Senate Office Building, bartenders plan to dole out a free round of Budweisers or bourbon shots every time Mr. Trump blasts out a tweet.

What an entertaining President! So much theater, drama and emotions in a usually dull and drab profession. Go Trump!

Even Fox News Thinks Comey Testimony ‘Very Damaging’ to Trump

http://www.thedailybeast.com/even-fox-news-thinks-comey-testimony-very-damaging-to-trump

... Fox viewers were treated to a harsh assessment of the political fallout for the Trump administration by the network’s more serious news anchors Bret Baier and Chris Wallace. Baier went first, unwilling to say definitely “who won the day,” but quick to call Comey’s opening statement “surprising” and “strong,” noting that “he took the gloves off right away” and “numerous times, essentially, directly calling President Trump a liar.”

“Repeatedly, James Comey called the president a liar, said that he lied about that the FBI was in disarray, that he defamed him and the FBI, said that the reason he kept those kinds of notes in the first place is that he thought this was the kind of man who would lie about those kinds of things,” he continued. “Not good stuff to have said on national television.”

That is a very different message from the one Fox & Friends pushed just a few hours earlier. The hosts of the right-wing gabfest said President Trump was right to feel “vindicated” by Comey’s statement and that Trump was in no way telling Comey to “stop the investigation” into his campaign’s Russia ties. Co-host Steve Doocy went so far as to argue that there was nothing wrong with Trump demanding “loyalty” from a supposedly independent FBI director.
