President who’s cheated on all three of his wives calls James Comey a ‘slime ball’

This Friday, President Trump took to Twitter and slammed former FBI Director James Comey as a “weak and untruthful slime ball” and a “proven LEAKER & LIAR” the day after excerpts from his new book surfaced in the media.

“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,” Trump tweeted. “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!”

Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty, slams the Trump presidency as a “forest fire” and compares Trump to a mafia boss. The book is a detailed recount of Comey’s conversations with Trump.

As press surrounding Comey’s book heats up, the White House and Trump supporters are gearing up attack the former FBI Director and paint him as a “deep state” operative with an axe to grind. This Friday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders attacked Comey’s credibility, tweeting that one of the “few areas of true bipartisan consensus in Washington is Comey has no credibility.”

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway also joined in the scrum, telling reporters that Comey “has a revisionist view of history and seems like a disgruntlement ex-employee.”

According to CNN, the plan to smear Comey involves branding him “Lyin’ Comey” through a “website, digital advertising and talking points to be sent to Republicans before his memoir is released next week.”

The plan, signed off on by the White House, is reportedly being overseen by the RNC.
