Trump Goes Off on ‘Slimeball’ Comey With a Brand-New Nickname

President Donald Trump allocated a good portion of his Sunday morning tweets to criticizing former FBI Director James Comey, whom he called both a “slimeball” and “slippery.”

In a series of five tweets, Trump criticized Comey’s “badly reviewed book” and various claims the former FBI director has made, including that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s predicted win influenced his decision in handling her email probe:

Trump explained the “big questions” in Comey’s book remain unanswered, such as:

  • “How come he gave up Classified Information (jail)”
  • “Why did he lie to Congress (jail)”
  • “Why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the FBI (why didn’t they TAKE it)”
  • “Why the phony memos, McCabe’s $700,000 & more?”

The president also tweeted that Comey threw former Attorney General Loretta Lynch “under the bus” and wondered what happened during her meeting on the tarmac with former President Bill Clinton:

He rebuked Comey’s claim that he asked for personal loyalty and declared that his “memos” are “self-serving and FAKE!”

“Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!” his tweet storm concluded.

Trump’s candidacy and presidency have been marked by nicknames given to his political opponents, and Comey has been the recipient of more than one.

Trump’s criticism of Comey on Twitter came ahead of the former FBI director’s anticipated ABC “20/20” interview with George Stephanopoulos.

It will be Comey’s first interview since his firing and is expected to consist of various questions regarding his time at the FBI and claims he makes in his upcoming book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”
