James Comey was blindsided when this TV host asked him one question
James Comey’s media tour took a dramatic turn.
The fired former FBI Director settled in for what was supposed to be a softball interview on ABC’s left-leaning program The View.
But he was blindsided when one host asked him this question.
Meghan McCain – John McCain’s daughter – unexpectedly ripped into Comey for using his book to score political points.
The Daily Caller reports:
“I want to believe you’re not a political person,” McCain said to Comey. “You’re the head of the FBI, but you write in your book how you went to President Obama, and you were on the verge of tears, saying you were going to miss him. You also said were dreading the next four years with Trump.”
“You said very incendiary things about my party this morning,” she continued. “I’m a Republican who has many issues with Trump, that is not reflective of my party as a whole. The big issue I have is — I don’t want to know your politics, and a lot of the things you’re saying and doing are highly political, and I just don’t understand what you gain, trying to sort of clear the deck here by bringing things like this up.”
“That’s a good question,” Comey responded. “I don’t think of it as my politics. I think of it as my values.”
McCain then brought up how Comey’s wife went to the anti-Trump Women’s March and was “very sad on election night.”
“But why bring up politics now?” McCain said. “No disrespect, but what your take on the current Republican Party is — I’m more interested in what you know about national security.”
Comey’s book is allegedly about leadership.
But the work includes cheap personal attacks about President Trump’s appearance and Comey has admitted his wife and daughters were all Hillary Clinton cheerleaders who joined resistance marches against Donald Trump.
Meghan McCain was dead on when she took aim at Comey for acting like a political hack.
