Left Digs Deep for Next Anti-Trump Hit; Finds Comey Hates Hug From President

21

You know the left is reaching for reasons to hate President Donald Trump when something like this becomes a full-fledged news story: The Hill reported that one of James Comey’s closest friends, a Brookings Institution fellow named Benjamin Wittes, said the former FBI chief was revolted when the president hugged him.

Really? This is what amounts to news these days? Comey hates hugs?

Stop the presses — James Comey hates hugs! Well, there’s a bit more to the story than that — but not much.

But here are all the sordid details — all apparently aimed at showing, once again, how Trump tried to influence Comey into backing off an investigation.

From the Hill:

“A friend of James Comey said Thursday that the former FBI director was “disgusted” when President Trump hugged him at a White House event earlier this year, calling it an “intentional attempt to compromise [Comey] in public.”

“Brookings Institution fellow Benjamin Wittes, a close friend of Comey, recounted the incident on PBS ‘NewsHour’ Thursday. According to Wittes, Comey was ‘disgusted’ when Trump gave Comey a hug during a White House visit for a ceremony honoring law enforcement officials that worked Trump’s inauguration.

“Wittes said Comey ‘really did not want to go to that meeting” and tried to distance himself from Trump to ensure the FBI’s independence from the White House. Comey, who is 6 feet 8 inches tall, was wearing a dark blue suit and stood near the similarly colored curtains in the back of the room, hoping that Trump would not spot him.
Trump did end up calling out Comey.

“‘Right at the end, Trump singles [Comey] out in a fashion that [Comey] regarded as sort of calculated,’ Wittes said. ‘Trump grabs the hand and kind of pulls [Comey] into the hug, but the hug is entirely one-sided. Comey was just completely disgusted by the episode.’

“‘He thought it was an intentional attempt to compromise him in public,’ he added.

“A video of the event shows Comey standing at the opposite side of the room from Trump during the meeting, then walking across, arm extended, to shake hands with Trump, but Trump hugs Comey.”

Oh come on, now. Isn’t there enough anti-Trump news to go around as it is?

    But here are all the sordid details …

    The only thing I see sordid about this is that Trump attempted to hug Comey. Well perhaps Comey should be grateful he didn’t try to grab him by …. the lapels.

    For the record, the one time I met Comey and shook his hand, I did not try to hug him.

    • Inmate of Diversityland

      How petty for the overgrown oaf to even mention that. It reveals an unfavorable aspect of his personality.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        He has a personality? Fancy that.

        • Gizmo

          lol one would wonder with those cold dead eyes.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Perhaps that of a dead fish?

  • Inmate of Diversityland

    The depths the POS media have sunk to in continually politically raping the president is unprecedented. Now we find out that rat b**tard Chuckie Schumer demanded a private meeting with the deputy attorney general, Rosenstein, then as if by magic, Mueller is appointed as special councel to investigate the fake Russian collusion.

    All these freaks in the media — televised or print must be punished somehow.

    This is why the public can’t stand the MSM or the left. It’s so damn obvious that they are all in this together to get Trump. Thank God Comey was fired. I’m sure he will drum up more garbage in an attempt to hurt the president.

    • Gizmo

      True. The enemedia will take anything no matter how trivial to keep the President tied up and from implementing his agenda. Schumie already said that was his plan. It’s what his twisted, hyper-Left base wants.

    • Mark Steiner

      The media and demoncrats will give him all the cover he needs.

        Finding “factoids” and blame must be easy for the left.
        They only have to refer to their manuals and sources*.

        * manuals, Das Kapital, soros’ directives, comrade bill ayres instructions,
        and john mccain and its to boy lindsey.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    The lame stream media are so trivial, it is quite surprising that anyone pays the slightest attention to such gossip mongers.

  • livingengine

    There is so much fake news around, it isn’t even funny.

    “Historians of journalism will argue over when the dam broke. Was it the age of Obama or of Trump? But the day arrived. The sun rose over the CNN Center in Atlanta, the K Street digs of the Washington Post and the offices of other media organizations. And it was no longer a question of selective reporting. We were no longer arguing about the injection of opinion into news stories or journalistic double standards.

    The age of fake news had arrived. We no longer have a free press. All we have is a fake press.”

    Comey is currently leaking via current staffers.

    But since it been revealed by other news sites that Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell definitely is leaking negative material, why is nothing done about it.
    Powell has also been shown to be linked to Huma Abedin, Hillary and the Muslim Brotherhood.
    Why is this woman not fired?
    On the one leak McMaster and Powel were the only other people in the room. So when the leaks come out one of them plays the source and the other is the second official who confirms.
    I don’t understand it; why is nothing done about these leaks?
    Why is the FBI doing nothing?

    HORRORS! Comey was forced into a hug. Oh the humanity! That might just be the evidence he needed to get Trump impeached

  • Nate Hall

    I bet he only gave him one scoop of Ice cream during that dinner as well! The HORROR!

  • Alleged Comment

    You got HUGGED by a negro??? Most people get MUGGED by them!

  • Drew the Infidel

    Comey hates hugs? Bless his f*cking heart.

  • Gordon Miller

    THE HUG. Huge news.💤💤💤.

  • freepetta

    Comey needs to pay the taxpayers back for the cost of the BS investigations into Hillary Clinton and her aides and that includes Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin etc. all those who obstructed justice including Billy Boy and his planned meeting of corrupt Loretta Lynch on the Arizona tarmac.

    Comey needs to cough up the millions in wasted law enforcement hours and resources which could have been used for REAL investigations.

    Comey was involved with the dirty Clinton Foundation and Global Initiative, he’s nothing but a 2 faced criminal. Protected his friends who lined his pockets and prosecuted Republicans who pissed off Obama.

    Go to church all you want Comey, you’re still going to HELL!!

    Tell us the reality show leftist media – we all know comey wears eye liner and ladies underwear.
