Oh, come on. Yes, it’s Saturday and a lot of pundits have taken the day off, but that’s OK — better to wait until Monday in hopes of the next big scandal than half-ass some outrage over something that’s been standard procedure your entire lifetime.
As Twitchy reported, the resistance movement has a new hero in the form of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who insisted that he would not resign as requested by the White House and instead force President Trump to fire him.
OK, so everybody knows Donald Trump’s catch phrase is “You’re fired,” right? This is not something Trump finds difficult, nor was his firing a surprise to Bharara or anyone else in America.
I did not resign. Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.

wait – Preet got fired instead of resigning? (starts rearranging sock drawer)

We were ready to send off Bharara with a hearty golf clap when we were manterrupted by Barack Obama’s speechwriter and foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes, who thought he’d give a shot at questioning Bharara’s firing … was he bad at his job or something? Or, as many are responding, was he just too good at his job and had to be fired?
In democracies the rule of law is not supposed to be partisan. In what way was Preet Bharara not good at his job? https://t.co/oXOkBS0Ivh

Are you implying that all of the US Attorneys that President Obama replaced during his administration were bad at their jobs? https://t.co/0IVVrlf8dE

@brhodes You are such a dope. It might be best to stay away from twitter.

Hey, that “one thing I did today for the resistance” motivational calendar isn’t gonna fill itself in.
When Holder announced Obama's intention to replace U.S. attorneys, he didn't say they were bad at their jobs. He said "elections matter." https://t.co/gvGJIIHHxj

What? President Obama replaced U.S. Attorneys too? Why didn’t we all hear about it? That must have been chaos.
