Former FBI Director James Comey has managed to trigger Donald Trump’s tweetsorms, but never his sense of humor.
According to his forthcoming book “Higher Loyalty,” Comey—who was unceremoniously fired by Trump to take “pressure” off the Russia investigation—writes he does not recall having ever seen the president laugh.
“I don’t recall seeing him laugh, ever,” Comey wrote. “Not during small talk before meetings. Not in a conversation. Not even here, during an ostensibly relaxed dinner.”
“I suspect his apparent inability to do so is rooted in deep insecurity, his inability to be vulnerable or to risk himself by appreciating the humor of others, which, on reflection, is really very sad in a leader, and a little scary in a president,” Comey added.
