    Don't you find ironic that FBI's ex director's name is Comey, which is pronounced as Commie?

    I hear Trump's people have said that Comey's testimony has vindicated the President.

    No.

    It's Co-mee. Co as in "coma".

    Learn to read. It's not spelled "Commey".

    According to this reliable site, last name 'Comey' and 'commie' sound pretty similar.

    The long O sound and the short O sound are not similar at all.

    Do you think the words 'coma' and 'comma' sound the same?

    All that aside, I'm concerned about John McCain. He sounded like a doddering old fool during his questioning of Comey, making ridiculous comparisons between the FBI's completed investigation of Clinton's email server and their current investigation of Russian involvement in the election. He even said 'Comey' instead of 'Trump', not once but at least twice. He sounded like he's losing it, frankly.

    His outside lawyer, with a prepared statement, boggled reporters with stuff easily fact-checked. I do think trump will survive this though.

    But he has made too many enemies. America is laughing stock. He won't see the end of his term. Unless, we deserve it.

    You're so eager to prove I am wrong in something that you sound as a bad teacher in some B-horror movie (*she usually gets axe in the head).

    You are barking at the wrong tree with this.

    If there is anyone who knows the difference between short and long consonant, it's me. I studied it. "After a short vowel...etc" And there are such pairs of words in Norwegian and Swedish that have different meaning depending on this.
    Do you know if there is a long consonant in Danish? Without googling, that is?
    I know if there is or not.
    (*And of course it is known to all RHP members of Scandinavian origin who still remember their predecessors' languages,)

    But this difference is no big deal in English, so it is fairly correct to say that Comey as last name and commie as a Mccarthian term sound same.

    You simply don't have an issue here to build something upon.

    He's been a doddering old fool for decades. That's why he was a Tory candidate. Being a conspiracy nutjob is a hard requirement for the position. You're only seeing this now?

    Oh, for the love of...
    Barking up the wrong tree. Not at the tree.

    It means a hunting dog is supposedly barking at a critter who climbed a tree to get away, but the confused dog is barking up the wrong tree... because the critter climbed up a different tree. But if he (or her) is actually barking at a tree then that pooch isn't just confused, he has some serious tree issues.
