In a candid interview, the Republican father of ex-FBI Director James Comey unloaded on the man who fired his son, saying President Donald Trump is “crazy” and “I thought he belonged in an institution.”

According to Philly.com, J. Brien Comey has been a Republican his entire life and once served as a city councilman in Allendale.

With his son expected to provide testimony about Trump to the Senate after Memorial Day, the elder Comey didn’t hold his fire after Trump reportedly called his son a “nutball.”

Saying he skipped voting for Trump in the 2016 election –after voting straight party line for most of his life — Comey took some shots at President Trump.

“I never was crazy about Trump,” J. Brien Comey explained in an interview with the Bergen Record. “I’m convinced that he’s nuts. I thought he belonged in an institution. He was crazy before he became president. Now he’s really crazy.”

According to the elder Comey, he and his son didn’t discuss his job.

“He and I have an unwritten secret agreement that I don’t talk about his job. It’s just a father-son relationship. We never talk about what he does. I read it in the papers,” he explained.

"I think to Nick [Confessore's] point earlier, there should be a sense of nervousness in Trump's camp," began Democratic strategist Basil Smikle. "You don't see -- you talked about enablers. You don't see Republicans engaged in their behavior with respect to the president at this juncture. You're starting to see them not nationalize he's the president of the United States. They should be more allied with him, but instead, they're focused on local campaigns. The president has lost several cases at the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act case notwithstanding. There's a lot of things they should be rallying around, but they can't."

In a piece for Vanity Fair, columnist Eric Lutz addressed the degree to which President Donald Trump is in trouble after the ruling by the Supreme Court on his financial records.

Trump has spent the better part of four years fighting any transparency about his finances and taxes, which many have suspected might reveal illegal activity.

"He's not going to release his tax returns," said senior adviser Kellyanne Conway in 2017. "We litigated this all through the election. People didn't care."

Trump gets advice from golfing buddies and right-wing Twitter as America faces a ‘crisis of truth’: op-ed

Published

Writing in the Washington Post this Thursday, columnist Michael Gerson contends that President Trump is running the country through the prism of the "right-wing information bubble."

"Trump is not only using this right-wing information bubble to exploit his supporters," Gerson writes. "He also seems, increasingly, to have taken up residence there. As his failures have multiplied, his hold on political reality has loosened. Trump has become our boy in the bubble, with an intellectual immune system too weak for him to survive exposure to reality."

All sources of dissent and critical thinking have been removed systematically removed from his administration -- — posts formerly held by Rex Tillerson, James Mattis and Dan Coats, have now been replaced by sycophants, according to Gerson.
