Former FBI Director Comey’s friend Ben Wittes, a Brookings Fellow, said Comey was uncomfortable with contacts he had with President Trump after he was accused of handing the election over to Hillary, an incident that made him “nauseous”. As a result, he didn’t want Trump to recognize him in any way. In one case, during an event honoring law enforcement on January 22nd, the 6’8″ Director tried to blend in with the curtains so Trump wouldn’t spot him.
The one thing he feared the most was the hug. He wasn’t going to be hugged.
Please tell me how this 6’8″ Comey could blend in with those curtains.
Wittes: “Comey said that as he was walking across the room he was determined that there wasn’t going to be a hug…Comey has long arms so Comey said he preemptively reached out for a handshake and grabbed the president’s hand. But Trump pulled him into an embrace and Comey didn’t reciprocate. if you look at the video, it’s one person shaking hands and another hugging.”
An embrace? You be the judge.
Look at this nothing burger in the video below. This is a hug??? The left is off the rails.
Does that sound petty to anyone besides me? Comey was “disgusted” by the episode, according to Wittes who said Trump was compromising him.
It couldn’t simply be that Trump was being nice?
Seriously, this is what we have running the FBI, one of the most elite law enforcement agency’s in the world? He doesn’t want to be recognized by the President for fear of how it will look?
You can listen to his wimpy, very liberal friend in this clip.
