‘LEAKER & LIAR’: Trump calls for Comey to be prosecuted in furious morning tweet

Published

on

President Donald Trump has lashed out at former FBI Director James Comey on Friday morning in an angry tweet storm.

“James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR,” Trump wrote. “Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH.”

In fact, Comey did not leak classified information, but rather leaked out a memo that he wrote about his interactions with Trump in which Trump asked the former FBI director for his personal loyalty. As the Washington Post explains, this specific memo contained no classified material.

After calling for his own former FBI director to be prosecuted, Trump continued attacking Comey in very personal terms.

“He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI,” Trump wrote. “His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst ‘botch jobs’ of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!”

Comey has been on TV promoting his new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” which is scheduled to be released on April 17.

In the excerpts released from the book, the media has focused on a few main points. First, an indication that the so-called “Russian pee tape” of Trump with prostitutes is real. Others include Comey’s take on Trump’s smaller stature, smaller hands, orange skin and hair that seemed like it would take him a while to “do” each morning. Another allegation is that Comey and the FBI were taken aback by the Trump transition team being more interested in “spin” than the fact that Russia had attacked the United States.

The Republican National Committee has launched a website to attack Comey and Fox News has been using the same language the president used in attacking the former FBI director.

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK
