    Ex-FBI chief James Comey says Trump 'morally unfit to be president'



    By who's criteria? Lord Love a Duck!! Talk about the POT calling the KETTLE black! Why, because Trump "may have" had mistresses? What? like FDR, JFK, LBJ, Clinton.....and probably a long line of other presidents? Hmmmm Oh does he mean hard core heartless businessmen....like J.P. Morgan, Carnegie, Henry Ford, and a long list of "Robber Barons" and "Captains of Industry":
    The people here are listed in Josephson, Robber Barons or in the cited source,
    Oh and don't forget Bill Gates, who was selling MS Word with his operating system BEFORE he owned it....and the modern plethora of BILLIONAIRES and Captains of our modern industry.

    Hmmmmm and let's not forget all the honesty and integrity in both past and present congress.

    Quite frankly Trump looks like an Arch Angel compared to past "morally unfit" leaders of this country. And where is Comey's moral compass giving Hitlery Clinton a total pass on her massive and blatant corruption?

    I seriously doubt that ANYONE in D.C. has a clue what morality is, not to mention honesty, integrity, duty and honor. Certainly no one that I can think of or name. So basically he just needs to STFU and go away. Nobody with any intelligence gives a damn what he thinks or has to say. Bye-bye now!
    We have done so much, with so little, for so long....We can now do anything, with nothing, forever.

    And Trump found Comey to be morally unfit to be FBI director and not only that a slimeball too!

    Drat. That's the last straw. Trump is going to burst into tears and resign. And it was all going so well, too.

    No, Comey is absolutely right. Trump IS "morally unfit." Trump actually HAS morals. That, in the FedGov, is like water to the Wicked Witch of the West...

    I know right? I’m crying now. You can depend on no one.

    Bawahaha bet that made Trump spit out his coffee and have a hearty laugh. I think Comey nist done lost the cheese on his cracker. That or that last nist in the white h paid him to say it. Easy $.

    hitlery was fired from her first job as an attorney for being too corrupt, and weaselwank says Trump is too immoral to hold office? Fascinating break with reality, perhaps weaselwank needs some face time with a psychiatrist.

    But he had no problem with serving under Obama and looking the other way with a trumped FISA warrant....right? Not to mention all the illegality that the Clinton clan was up to.

    I'm thinking that the terms personality and morality are nearly interchangeable.

    What's below is my opinion; sensitive persons that might be offended by the opinion of the forum's resident liberal should stop reading here.






    -------------------- caution - risk of head exploding------------------------------








    I haven't read the book but I think Comey's assessment probably was referring to the president's narcissism and grandiosity, from which stems everything else about his personality. His fixation on his own importance, the accusations and tweets that seem so delusional, inability to exercise self-control that evaporates when anyone, especially the press challenges him, his hypersensitivity to criticism as well as his incapacity for insight or empathy are all moral issues.

    His statements and tweets indicate precursors or the indicators of types of behavior and standards in the White House that expose him to extraordinary risks legally and politically. Norms are norms usually for good reasons. However intelligent he may be, his indifference to social and political norms indicates an untetheredness to traditional American qualities. Re: Charlottesville; "there were fine people on both sides." Really? Americans are no longer reflexively opposed to nazis? The greatest generation heroes that are no longer with us must be rolling over in their graves. Making a habit of saying things that are easily and verifiably false is indeed moral issue.

    Moral people do not disregard promises they've made. Moral people do not make opposite arguments depending on whom they're talking to. To his base he says global warming is a “hoax”; when it comes to protecting his seaside Scottish golf course, he cites climate change as the reason for demanding that the locals stem the rising tides with, naturally, a wall. His astonishing proposal to trash America’s credit by defaulting on our debt reveals an inability to differentiate between running a casino and a country.

    He's publicly detailed -- often in crude, misogynistic and demeaning ways -- his sexual conquests, power, wealth, prestige, and societal celebrity. His propensity to tell lies, even when telling the truth is just fine is especially disturbing, indicating not just a desire to evade but as something stranger and more disturbing.

    I'm of the camp that sees the stable genius's erratic speech, tweets and behavior not as some multi dimensional chess he's playing but as natural consequences of a personality that's not constrained by any kind of internal morality.

    Some people are attracted to the 'strength' that he tries to project. Some people think that the country is so screwed up that it it should be figuratively if not literally burned down to allow something better to emerge from the ashes. I've heard that Congress as an institution has an approval rating of 9%; that the approval rating of communism is 10%; Chlamydia has a rating of 8%. I understand that a lot of people are pissed off. I'm of the belief that electing the stable genius was not the appropriate remedy.

    Sorry if you were offended but that's my opinion as well as that of others.

    I will agree. Problem is that every other candidate is less moral then him.

    FJ, you are a complete idiot.

    idiot (n.)

    early 14c., "person so mentally deficient as to be incapable of ordinary reasoning;" also in Middle English "simple man, uneducated person, layman" (late 14c.), from Old French idiote "uneducated or ignorant person" (12c.), from Latin idiota "ordinary person, layman; outsider," in Late Latin "uneducated or ignorant person," from Greek idiotes "layman, person lacking professional skill" (opposed to writer, soldier, skilled workman), literally "private person" (as opposed to one taking part in public affairs), used patronizingly for "ignorant person," from idios "one's own" (see idiom).

    In plural, the Greek word could mean "one's own countrymen." In old English law, one who has been without reasoning or understanding from birth, as distinguished from a lunatic, who became that way. Idiot box "television set" is from 1959; idiot light "dashboard warning signal" is attested from 1961. Idiot savant attested by 1870.

    I dare you FJ to read what Comey has to say about himself....


    James Comey: I’ve Struggled with My Ego My Whole Life

    Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey delivers the keynote remarks at the Intelligence and National Security Alliance Leadership Dinner March 29, 2017 in Alexandria, Virginia. While testifying before the House Intelligence Committee last week, Comey said the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russia, and will pursue it 'no matter how long that takes.'

    by Aaron Klein16 Apr 20183,407

    Former FBI Director James Comey stated in an interview that he has “struggled” his whole life with his “ego and– and a sense that I– I have to be careful not to fall in love with my own view of things.”

    Comey addressed his self-described ego-centric tendencies in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos ahead of the release of his memoir on Tuesday.

    Asked about this negative traits, Comey conceded that “my rap on myself is that– is that ego focus. That I– since I was a kid, I’ve had a sense of confidence. That I know I’m good at certain things. And there’s a danger that that will bleed over into pride, into not being open minded to the fact that I could be wrong and other people could have a better view of it.”

    During the interview, Comey further stated he originally thought he would never write a book because authoring a memoir “always felt like an exercise in ego.”

    “And one of the things I’ve struggled with my whole life is my ego and– and a sense that I– I have to be careful not to fall in love with my own view of things,” he added. “And so that battle with ego and my sense that memoirs are an exercise in ego convinced me I was never going to write a book.”

    Comey claims he wrote the book out of a sense of duty to the U.S.

    Stephanopoulos asked the former FBI chief whether his ego got the best of him when he infamously violated FBI tradition and bypassed the Justice Department to unilaterally make public pronouncements about Hillary Clinton’s email case. Comey did this at a news conference on July 5, 2016 at which he criticized Clinton’s private email server as “extremely careless” before finally stating that “no charges are appropriate in this case.”

    “Your critics say this is where your ego got the best of you. This was your original sin?” Stephanopoulos asked.

    Comey replied:

    Yeah, I hear that. And, look, there’s always a risk that I’m blind to how I’m acting. I don’t think so. I knew this would be terrible for me personally. So if it was about ego, why would I step out in front of the organization and get shot a thousand times?

    I actually thought, as bad as this’ll be for me personally, this is my obligation, to protect the F.B.I. and the Justice Department. Given all that had gone on, the attorney general of the United States could not credibly announce this result. And if she did, it would do corrosive damage to the institutions of justice.

    Despite describing struggles with his ego, Comey recounted how he originally relented when Attorney General Loretta Lynch convinced the former FBI director to use the word “matter” instead of “investigation” during public comments about the Clinton probe. This despite the Justice Department knowing the FBI probe was not only an official investigation but a criminal investigation.

    Here is a transcript of the exchange where Comey recalls the matter, and admits he should have pushed back against Lynch’s request:

    GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: She– but– she agreed. But you write that she didn’t want to call it an investigation?

    JAMES COMEY: That’s right. She agreed Loretta Lynch I had a great relationship with and still have a lot of respect for. And she said, “I agree. But call it a matter.” And I said, “Why would I do that?” And she said, “Just call it a matter.” And I didn’t know exactly why she was doing that, but I decided in that moment that the whole world would miss the distinction between investigation and matter. And so I dropped it at that point. At my press event, I said– used the term matter, and I was right, the press missed it and said we’d confirmed an investigation.

    GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Did– did you think she was doing that to protect Hillary Clinton?

    JAMES COMEY: I didn’t know. It worried me. It gave me an uncomfortable feeling because the Clinton campaign, since the matter had come in, the investigation had started in July, had been trying to come up with other words to describe it. They had used “Review” I think, “Security referral,” things like that. And it did worry me that the attorney general’s direction was tracking that effort to avoid using the word “investigation.” And so, to be honest, it gave me a bad feeling. And maybe I should’ve pushed harder in the moment.

    GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Yeah, did you push her on it?

    JAMES COMEY: I didn’t because I’ve known Loretta for a long time. We worked a case together in the early 1990s. And she’s a very smart person. And if she’d had a reason that I couldn’t see in Justice Department policy or something, she’da given it to me. But her answer, “Just do it,” told me this is an order from the attorney general. So it’s not improper, it’s a little bit off axis from the actual facts. But people are going to miss the distinction. And so I’m not going to fight this new attorney general. This is not going to be our first battle.

    GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: You think you should have?

    JAMES COMEY: Yeah, I probably should have. Given that I respect Loretta, I probably should’ve pushed harder in the moment.

    Well I agree with Farmer John. That was the best assessment of trump I have read.

    So I guess that makes me all the things you all have called him.

    I am ok with that.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
    Only I will remain.
