President Donald Trump on Sunday continued to attack former FBI Director James Comey with a series of tweets aimed at undercutting the credibility of his upcoming book, “A Higher Loyalty.”
Among other things, Trump called Comey a “slimeball” who should go to “jail” and who wrote “FAKE” memos aimed at smeared the president.
However, the president’s tweets also had the unintended consequence of promoting Comey’s book, which has already rocketed up the charts on Amazon’s bestseller list despite the fact that it doesn’t officially release until Tuesday.
Many Twitter users noted the irony of Trump helping his former FBI director sell more books — check out some of the reactions below.
Comey’s book publisher is the one who should be declaring “Mission Accomplished” https://t.co/hfrc0AfIoV

I wonder if Stormy Daniels will get this many tweets when her book comes out? My guess…probably not a single one.

James Comey’s book publisher must be so happy this morning.

Is Comey's publisher sending you a cut? Every tweet on this is making him sooooooo much money

That sound was Comey's book publisher asking for another million in print.
Hey Dumbfella trump, of course you asked him for his loyalty. The fact that you were too arrogant and stupid to realize professional law enforcement take notes is your problem – stop your whining.

If your Twitter meltdown last longer than 4 hours, please call your doctor.
