In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, former FBI Director James Comey explained his strange and highly-publicized relationship to President Donald Trump that has once again made headlines in the wake of his new book.
“You write that your experience in high school gave you a ‘lifelong hatred for bullies,'” Tapper noted. “Do you think President Trump is a bully and do you hate him?”
“I definitely don’t hate him,” the former FBI director said. “There are things he does that make me uncomfortable and I think are inappropriate that are in some ways like a bully-like behavior, but I don’t hate Donald Trump. I don’t even dislike Donald Trump.”
The host went on to ask Comey to clarify a comment he made about Trump treating women “like meat,” to which the former FBI director replied that he had that impression not from personal experience but from the president’s public persona.
