President Trump fired FBI Director Comey yesterday afternoon, and afterwards David Frum served up this dire warning:
It’s a coup.

It is? Not everybody’s willing to take it to that level:
Like, I know we're supposed to be polite, and Twitter kind of cultivates this rhetoric, but Trump derangement is getting out of hand. https://t.co/5uKMtALV3B

Nope, President Trump is still in charge. https://t.co/Svs1rEtXDe

A coup generally does not consist wholly of a person being fired by a person lawfully empowered to fire them, but who cares about laws? https://t.co/CZXUDvj2Vw

Maybe it depends on what your definition of “coup” is.
You've gotta go with the Reynolds Wrap. The off brand tinfoil simply doesn't work. https://t.co/yoKMNVZiWI
