Impervious no longer. Comey’s revelations are turning up the heat on Trump, who will only be able to deflect so many allegations before he finds himself with his back to the wall, suggests Michael Goodwin of the New York Post. His low approval ratings and the growing possibility of Democratic victories in the midterms risk leaving the president dangerously exposed. Comey is in the process of detailing how Trump tried to undermine the FBI’s investigation into collusion with Russia. As more and more details about his wrongdoings come to the fore, his supporters will find it harder not to peel away from the increasingly controversial president.
Untrumpable. The president has demonstrated time and time again that no scandal of any magnitude will topple him, and this is still the case with Comey’s latest allegations, holds Sam Stein of the Huffington Post. Trump’s past as an entertainer has given him a unique aura that makes Americans hold him to a different standard than most politicians. Furthermore, any possibility of impeachment is nullified by the unwavering support he holds among Republicans, which is decisive due to their majorities in the House and the Senate. Comey’s claims are already being dismissed by the GOP as old news, so it is unlikely their stance will change.
