The President of the United States has the right to fire any appointee he desires. That is his prerogative.
What #BLOTUS does have the right to do, however, is to lie to the public about the reason for firing the Attorney General. The truth is clear, as are the facts. Sally Gates defied an immoral and illegal presidential order. #BLOTUS axed her for standing up against his Muslim ban.
Good for her. She will not be the last victim of the vindictive and unstable person now consolidating his power of all of us. But she has demonstrated for the entire world the bullying tactics and the pathological lying for which Trump is so well known.
Thank you, Sally Gates. Your courage to stand firm in the face of wrong is an inspiration to all of us.
