James Comey was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos and if the leaked reports are accurate, it is stunning. The only question after this performance is how this man was ever appointed Director of the FBI. This is a reminder that every year on American Idol there is always one performer who thinks he or she is a superstar only to deliver a nauseatingly bad performance. You know the kind of performance that is so bad that a Simon Cowell would say something like: “is this a joke? Do you really think you can sing?”
I am sure a certain portion of the liberal left will buy this hook line and sinker. They will view this as conclusive evidence that Donald Trump is totally unqualified to be President of the United States. The rest of us will watch and ask at what point someone intervenes and pulls Comey off the stage so he can stop embarrassing himself. I thought that the 60-minute interview of Stormy Daniels by Anderson Cooper was a low point in American journalism, but I was wrong. The Stephanopoulos interview of James Comey will set a new standard. Stephanopoulos either brilliantly exposed James Comey as a hopeless fool or he himself is too blinded by his hatred for Donald Trump to recognize the level of insanity. Based on the video of Stephanopoulos discussing this on Good Morning America, Stephanopoulos tossed Comey soft ball leading questions and never pushed back against conclusions that are beyond pathetic.
For example: Comey discusses describing the Russia Dossier. When Comey told Trump about the alleged golden shower incident, Trump quickly said that was absurd and asked if Comey could investigate to prove that this was false. Comey said he thought it was possibly true. He failed to grasp the obvious that Trump would never ask the Director of the FBI to investigate this if there was any chance this was true. Trump’s response is what one would expect from someone falsely accused of doing something not only salacious, but absurd.
The only question most people will ask is why it took Trump so long to fire Comey. I believe the unprecedented raid on Michael Cohen and the wall to wall coverage of people like Stormy Daniels and now James Comey will backfire big time on the liberal left. They have lost the last shred of credibility.
As for Comey, he would be smart to shut up and lawyer up. He is consistently inconsistent with a delusional self-righteous vision of every event. At one point he literally describes feeling that he is floating about the conversation looking down upon this in disbelief. Are you kidding me? How could anyone explain this as other than mentally unstable. Yet, in their all-consuming hatred of Donald Trump and their desperation to destroy him the liberal left has fully embraced the looney tune crowd. This is embarrassing, and it needs to stop, now.
Trump response to Comey, almost certainly written by legal counsel, is below:
“James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH,” “He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst ‘botch jobs’ of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!”
The only legitimate criticism of Trump is: “what took you so long?”
