It’s the president personally getting in on what one senior Trump administration official described to The Daily Beast as the “‘Comey is a pussy’ offensive.”
“It minimizes [Comey and] undermines the seriousness of his testimony and claims,” the official noted, chuckling. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity so as to speak freely.
Ever since Comey testified under oath before the Senate, perhaps the pettiest talking point to emerge out of Trump-world has been that the ex- FBI head isn’t much of a tough guy. Last week, Comey testified that Trump pressuring him to go easy on Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn was “a very disturbing thing, [and] very concerning.”
