Brit Hume on Dem Attacks on Trump over Comey: This Is Shoe on the Other Foot Disease

‘If anybody but Trump had fired Comey there probably wouldn’t have been much of an objection’

EXCERPT:

HUME: "This is a case of disease which inflicts Washington at all times, and that is shoe on the other foot disease. There are things that people in Washington whom they favor do that they think are fine and when somebody they don’t favor do them, it’s terrible. Think about Trump. He's a perfect example of that. If anybody but Trump had fired Comey there probably wouldn’t have been much of an objection. If anybody but Trump had issued the second immigration order, it probably would have stood and would not have been stopped by the courts. But people — judges are looking back at campaign statements and reading them into his intentions with the order and therefore they were blocked. So a lot of what you think now and where you stand on these things as always in Washington depends on where you sit, which side of the aisle."
