Longtime conservative political consultant Rick Wilson launched a furious tweetstorm on Tuesday night following the stunning decision by President Donald Trump to fire FBI Director James Comey.


Wilson has long been a thorn in the side of Trump, whom he considers a conman who is not a conservative and doesn't represent conservative values.

On Twitter, Wilson reacted to the firing by begging Republican lawmakers to finally show "moral courage" and stand up to Trump, writing, "I know this will be like a fart in a hurricane, but I'm going to beg my fellow Republicans, particularly those in elected office to take this seriously. Which of you will show the moral courage to stand up, speak out, and say that this moment is where you get off the mindless, soulless Trump Cult Train?"

And then he was off. You can read the tweets below:
