It was a return to the old, familiar routine on Wednesday morning, when President Trump went after Democrats on Twitter for their reaction to his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

"The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad!" the president tweeted Wednesday.

Trump unexpectedly fired Comey - the man who had been leading the controversial investigation into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia - on Tuesday evening, a decision some media reports suggested he had expected would be met with a favorable reception from Democrats, and especially the Clinton team, especially after Hillary accused Comey of being the catalyst behind her losing the election.  The dismissal came in a signed letter from Trump to Comey that said it was time for a "new beginning" at the nation's "crown jewel of law enforcement." Comey was in LA at the time, and learned about his termination while watching TV.

Needless to say, the move "shocked" Washington and sparked outrage from Democrats, who said the president was trying to shut down the FBI's investigation. Democratic lawmakers fired off statements condemning the president's actions and impugning his motives, with some alluding to the Watergate era.

The most vocal response came from Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer late Tuesday raised questions about the reasoning behind Comey's firing. “Were these investigations getting too close to home for the president?” Schumer asked during a news conference. “Are people going to suspect cover-up? Absolutely.”

Trump responded to that on Tuesday night, tweeting "Cryin' Chuck Schumer stated recently, "I do not have confidence in him (James Comey) any longer." Then acts so indignant.  #draintheswamp"

In two follow up tweets, Trump also said that "James Comey will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI" and added that "Comey lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike. When things calm down, they will be thanking me!"
