James Comey On Donald Trump, ‘He Treats Women Like Meat And Is Morally Unfit To Be President’

According to The New York Times, in a Sunday night ABC interview, Former FBI Director James Comey said that Donald Trump treats women like “meat” and is morally unfit to be president.

Comey blasted Trump during his first television interview since he was fired last May, describing him as a serial liar and a “stain” on everyone who worked for him.

“I think he’s morally unfit to be president,” Comey told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

“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,” he continued.

Comey’s interview with coincided with the release of his book, “A Higher Loyalty,” which details his interactions with the president and the fallout from the 2016 presidential campaign.

In the days since the first excerpts of Comey’s book were released, President Trump has lashed out at the former FBI director, labeling him a “leaker and liar,” a “slimeball” and “worst FBI Director in history, by far!”

Trump fired Comey last May. His ouster from the FBI led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is now leading the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.
