Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, who once asked for and received a $25,000 campaign donation from Trump while "investigating" his sham of a university, thinks the president did the right thing by firing former FBI Director James Comey.

From the Tampa Bay Times:

"I think it was justified. He has every legal right to do so. Democrats were complaining about him, Republicans were complaining about him. That job should not be a political job. We should not be hearing very publicly from the leader of the FBI," said Bondi.

That's rich.

Last week Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a guy who once oversaw the largest Medicare fraud in U.S. history, also thought that canning Comey was a good thing. "I believe the President needed a fresh start. You've got to have somebody who's nonpartisan," said Scott to Fox News.
