Donald Trump just becomes more and more unhinged as the days go by. Clearly jealous of James Comey’s new anti-Trump book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership and the fact that the former FBI director has a big tell-all interview coming up, Trump unleashed one of his most ridiculous Twitter rants to date this morning.
From the snippets that ABC News has been releasing ahead of Comey’s interview with George Stephanopoulos, it’s already looking as though Trump has something major to worry about. The interview is primed to be explosive, and it already has the president losing his sh*t.
Trump began his Twitter rant this morning by whining about Comey’s confession that he thought Hillary Clinton was going to win the election, which influenced his decisions:
“Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!”
Trump then predictably trashed Comey’s book and suggested that Comey should go to jail:
“The big questions in Comey’s badly reviewed book aren’t answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the FBI (why didn’t they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe’s $700,000 & more?”
And Trump was just getting started. He also brought up Attorney General Loretta Lynch who he accused Comey of throwing “under the bus”:
The president also denied Comey’s claims that the president had begged the former FBI director for his loyalty, saying “I hardly even knew this guy.”
And of course, it all ended with the president giving Comey a new infantile nickname, “Slippery James Comey,” before calling him the “WORST FBI Director in history.”
Trump is clearly bitter about a recent poll in which Americans stated they trusted Comey more than him — so the president knows he’s in trouble, especially with Comey’s book and this big interview coming up. Keep an eye on Trump’s Twitter account today — there’s more of this insanity to come.
