On Monday morning, President Trump walked by himself to Marine One. He did not respond to shouted questions from reporters, “Did you watch the Comey interview, Mr. President?”
Last week Trump said that firing Comey was the right decision. “Well, I turned out to do the right thing, because if you look at all of the things that he’s done and the lies, and you look at what’s gone on at the FBI with the insurance policy and all of the things that happened — turned out I did the right thing. But he signed — as you know, he also signed the FISA warrant. So Rod Rosenstein, who’s in charge of this, signed a FISA warrant, and he also signed a letter that was essentially saying to fire James Comey. And he was right about that. He was absolutely right,” Trump said.
The Press Secretary reiterated Trump’s view that “Comey is a self-admitted leaker. Been proven to be dishonest. And I think that his credibility is really at hand, and it’s quite interesting that he would question someone else’s when he has such a lack of credibility himself.”
In the interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that aired Sunday night, Comey said that Trump is “morally unfit to be the President of the United States”. Comey said that it is possible Russians have some dirt on the president. ” Our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country, the most important being truth,” Comey said.
The President’s relative position to the truth and politicisation of facts has marked his presidency so far and represents the biggest danger to modern America.
In his tweet today, President Trump fired back on twitter qualifying Comey as the “worst FBI director in history”.
