‘ Trump morally unfit to be President’
Washington, April 16: Fired former FBI chief James Comey lashed out at Donald Trump in an interview with ABC broadcast Sunday, calling him “morally unfit” to be the President of the United States.
Describing him as a serial liar who will “stain everyone around him,” Mr Comey said that Mr Trump treats women like “pieces of meat”.
“I don’t buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be President. I think he’s morally unfit to be President. Our President must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country... This President is not able to do that,” Mr Comey said in his first televised interview since being fired in May last year.
Mr Comey’s remarks are the latest salvo in a war of words with Mr Trump, who excoriated the former FBI director on Twitter earlier in the day, again calling him a “slimeball” and suggesting he should be jailed.
The wide- ranging interview with ABC News came ahead of Tuesday’s release of Mr Comey’s memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, in which he details his interactions with the Republican President.
Hours before the interview aired, the President went on the offensive, accusing Mr Comey of “many lies”.
Later he tweeted, “Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her ( lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!”

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! — Donald Trump
