(Video) Ingraham: Ingraham: No parallel between Trump, Nixon over ousted AG

Leftists are so predictable. The older ones not only want to live in the past but they see current events as reruns of their faded dreams. So the Occupy movement was their way of reliving the 1960s anti-war protests. And last night's firing by Donald Trump by the acting US attorney general is a repeat, in their tired eyes, of the "Saturday Night Massacre," when Richard M. Nixon fired his attorney general, then his assistant, for their refusal to follow Tricky Dicky's demand that he fire the Watergate special prosecutor, Archibald Cox. As that post was a Career Reserved post, Cox could only be fired for cause, that is for incompetence or malfeasance.

The acting AG, Sally Yates, who Donald Trump fired yesterday was dismissed because she refused to carry out and enforce a presidential executive order on immigration from seven Middle Eastern nations.

She made a political decision to disobey her boss. Trump of course was right to terminate her employment.

So the so-called Monday Night Massacre is no Saturday Night Massacre.

As for the younger leftists, they are regretful that they missed the good old days of liberalism and they want to relive the glories of their radical teachers and professors. So they are wearing pink pussy hats and having tantrums at airports.

Laura Ingraham dismissed the comparisons between Trump and Nixon this morning.
