Trump just attacked the FBI Deputy Director. Ron Perlman’s response hits the nail on the head

On the heels of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s corroboration of former FBI Director James Comey’s bombshell assertion that Trump demanded from him a “loyalty pledge,” the President took to Twitter today to launched a pointed attack on the number two official at the FBI.

In typical juvenile fashion, Trump twisted the narrative to suggest that McCabe was attempting to delay his retirement until mid-March, when he would be eligible for full pension benefits.

Actor Ron Perlman saw the glaring hypocrisy in the President’s tweet and wasted no time calling him out.

Trump, for his part, is widely believed to be using the Presidency – as a “government worker” – to enrich himself and his family.

From using the Washington, D.C. hotel bearing his name to host political figures seeking to curry favor with the White House to forcing the Secret Service to rent golf carts for $137,000 at Trump-owned golf courses, the President has not been discreet about how exactly he has been exploiting the American taxpayers to line his own pockets.

Furthermore, Trump signing the Republican tax plan is a glaring reminder that, despite his empty promises to do so, he has yet to release his own tax returns. The tax plan – widely regarded as a gift to the ultrawealthy in this country – is expected to heavily enrich him and his family. His unwillingness to prove his detractors wrong is poor optics at best and effectively an admission of guilt at worst.

He may have been elected as a populist candidate, but – lest there be any doubt – Trump is in it for himself and his family before anyone else.
