The calls of stupidity aimed at the House Republicans grew louder Thursday evening after they released the memos from former FBI director James Comey.
During a panel discussion with CNN’s Don Lemon, Republican Rick Wilson was astonished that the House Republicans would be so stupid to release memos that not only made the president look worse but made Comey look better.
“I don’t think his congressional allies did him any favors tonight by revealing these memos,” Wilson said, agreeing with many commentators speaking out on Twitter Thursday. “If they thought this was going to make Comey and had investigation look bad, this is once again reminding people of the concept of Trump, hookers and Russia all in one big package. It’s astounding how they released these tonight.”
Wilson was also shocked at how guilty President Donald Trump comes off in the memos.
“This is one more example of Donald Trump either having a relationship with Vladimir Putin that he hasn’t been honest about it, or trying to impress people with an imaginary relationship with Vladimir Putin,” Wilson also said. “This is guy whose behavior — I mean the stink of guilt is all over this guy.”

Sarah Sanders’ replacement ‘won’t last one day’ if they won’t lie for Trump like she did: CNN host
During a panel discussion on White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' plan to depart her job working for President Donald Trump, CNN host Kate Bolduan scoffed at the idea that the president will employ anyone who doesn't lie like he does.
Speaking with CNN media analyst Brian Stelter, Bolduan asked about Sanders contentious tenure and her abrasive nature with the press.
"Essentially the post hasn't been filled in the traditional sense for a long time," Stelter explained. "95 days without a traditional briefing. Clearly, he's going to appoint somebody. The white house communications director role hasn't been filled in the way it traditionally is."
Ex-White House aide snaps at CNN’s Camerota after she calls out Sarah Sander’s lies
In a frequently contentious interview with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, former White House Communications director Anthony Scaramucci snapped at the CNN host when she pointed out exiting White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' history of lying and attacking the press.
Asked about the timing of Sanders' departure, Scaramucci said the spokesperson had done her time -- one year serving on then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign and two years in the White House.
"She did a great job," Scaramucci attempted. "I know people have mixed views of her in places like this but I love her and think she did a great job and she is as an honest broker."
