In Interview, Comey Calls Trump ‘Morally Unfit’ and a ‘Stain’ on All Around Him

ABC News aired an hourlong interview on Sunday with James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director fired by President Trump last year. George Stephanopoulos, ABC’s chief anchor, interviewed Mr. Comey, who is promoting his new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” for five hours in all. ABC published a complete transcript of their conversation. Here are highlights and analysis from that transcript.

oN president trump’s Leadership
‘He is morally unfit to be president.’

I don’t buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who’s tracking conversations and knows what’s going on. I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president.

A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it — that person’s not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds. And that’s not a policy statement. Again, I don’t care what your views are on guns or immigration or taxes.

There’s something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country. The most important being truth. This president is not able to do that. He is morally unfit to be president.


There is much more in the interview but you have the gist of it above. Oh I'm sure Harpo and other idiots will cry foul but their outrage at anything anti Trump no matter the overwhelming evidence is laughable at best.
In order to insult me, I must first value your opinion! Nice try though.

  • I made my mind up about Republican James Comey when he claimed to have reopened an investigation of Hillary Clinton a matter of days before the presidential election.

    Comey was sure Hillary would would win and he was trying to make the investigation look fair and above board...

    I won't cry foul but don't you know Comey and McCabe are bad apples. They make the whole agency look bad. But the whole agency is not bad. You are a partisan hack so you don't even try to be fair...

    Easy to imagine it. There is enough evidence to support it.

    This reminds me of your post where you stated if you buy CCW insurance it would support a murder charge...LOL

  • If only you guys in the USA could stop thus arguing, on this website, every media site there is available, all reporters do is to is to publish articles of vile and hate to each other and everyone that matters...............this kind of reporting hardly ever happens in other western countries........we get on with what is important running our countries and DO NOT resort to this kind of slime hate that you Yanks are always using.......the USA should concentrate more on making articles that the world needs to get on with their lives, not sheltering some where.......afraid of US missiles and US WMDs........The USA has only 4.3% of its workers in the manufacturing trades, Sweden has 71.6% of its workers in the manufacturing businesses making things to sell at home and abroad
