Comey was heckled at a Barnes and Noble by Laura Loomer who describe herself on Twitter as, “Investigative Journalist 🇺🇸Former @Project_Veritas operative 🔯Proud American Jew 🔯UnVerified for speaking truth.”
He regrets it, but not because of any “higher loyalty” to anything. Rather, it was “just because it gave people a handhold for people who haven’t read the book to attack the book,” he said during an appearance on “The View.” He was just trying to be descriptive, he claims. “I really wasn’t trying to pick on Donald Trump. I could hear my editor’s voice say, ‘Bring the reader, bring the reader,'” he said.
Kramerbooks, located in Washington’s trendy Dupont Circle district, is the place Washingtonians go to hang out, browse books, and grab something to eat at the attached cafe.
It’s much smaller than a Barnes and Noble and has survived Amazon because it is cozy and inviting, offering the feeling that you are immersed within a warm den of great books. And if you’re going to sell a political book, it’s a good place to start, given the clientele.
The place was open at 12:01 am Tuesday morning expecting long lines for James Comey’s new book, “I’ve Got Higher Morals than You,” or “I’m Loyal to Getting High,” or whatever it’s called, released on Tuesday. But on hand were more photographers, reporters and salespeople, all working the night shift, than customers.
The ratings for his much-hyped appearance with George Stephanopoulos were also a disappointment.
To be sure, Comey’s book is #1 on Amazon. But I don’t expect it to stay there long. There’s little in the book except for tales Comey has already told and the philosophy and moralizing of a professional bureaucrat.
I expect Comey, realizing that his act is getting stale quick, to try to pull some new tricks out of his bag by making increasingly outrageous statements during his upcoming interviews. And he’ll just further diminish himself and add to the damage done to his reputation by this self-important, self-indulgent book masquerading as a deep meditation on our society.
Our “betters” in government know better, and we should never have elected a morally repugnant rube who might challenge them. That was one of the messages we received Sunday night from former FBI boss James Comey, who took it upon himself during an interview with ABC News to challenge the moral compass of the American… Continue Reading
It’s incredible to watch the mainstream media hype former FBI Director James Comey’s book even though there is absolutely nothing substantively new in it about President Trump. The media all seem to have either gotten it leaked to them or paid some lowly bookstore employees to give it to them ahead of its release Tuesday.… Continue Reading
But Mr. Trump, tell me how you feel. Oh, I’m sorry, our session is over now, see you next week. James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he… Continue Reading
The great James Comey book tour begins Sunday night with an appearance on ABC News. The RNC is ready with a “Lyin’ Comey” campaign, complete with its own website. What about Lyin’ Ted? Isn’t he going to be jealous? Here’s a report by CNN which, interestingly enough, the RNC thought well enough of to put… Continue Reading
From the Daily Beast: Within minutes of his firing in May, former FBI director James Comey received a call from John Kelly, then the head of the Department of Homeland Security and now the White House chief of staff. According to Comey’s account, which is set to appear in his highly-anticipated forthcoming memoir, Kelly was… Continue Reading
The raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s offices is a profound event. Cohen is Trump’s tough-talking, slightly shady-seeming attorney. He knows where Trump buries the bodies. And if he doesn’t cave and testify himself, lots of information about Trump may be on his electronic gadgets, all of which were seized. The entire Russia investigation was… Continue Reading
Robert Mueller’s indictment of Paul Manafort for alleged crimes unrelated to the Russia investigation demonstrates that the Washington establishment, and Democrats in particular, are on a path to succeed in their effort to reclaim the election from voters by ousting President Trump. Here’s how it has worked. The Democrats and the press went wild over… Continue Reading
The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a bipartisan investigation into whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch interfered politically in the criminal probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. From a statement by Judiciary panel Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa: Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Ranking Member Dianne… Continue Reading
What an irony the thing that has liberals salivating the most over the prospect of injuring President Trump was caused by aspects of the man’s character the same liberals would never recognize. As things currently stand, the only charge I’ve seen that actually puts the Trump presidency in jeopardy is that he obstructed justice. This… Continue Reading
