If the president didn’t see that his precipitous firing of the man in charge of investigating the Trump campaign’s connections with the Russian regime might instead alienate some of his allies and outrage much of the public, that’s no anomaly.

He fired a volley
and felt very jolly!
That’s life when you’re on center stage.
