Trump Demands ‘Jail’ For Comey In Deranged Twitter Fusillade, Gets Brutal Response

President Trump spent Sunday morning in front of his White House televisions, firing off tweet after tweet lambasting former FBI director James Comey over the allegations levied in his still-forthcoming book “A Higher loyalty.”

James Comey, the President fumed, is a “slippery” “slimeball” who should be tossed in jail, with a “badly reviewed” and “FAKE” memoir, only confirming his rank as the “WORST FBI Director in history, by far!”

“He was making decisions based on the fact that he thought (Hillary Clinton) was going to win, and he wanted a job,” Trump declared in one tweet, sent at 7:42 a.m., referring to Comey’s handling of the Clinton email probe.

“I hardly knew this guy,” Trump lamented in another an hour later, denying Comey’s claim that he’d demanded his loyalty.

The White House has developed a plot alongside the Republican National Committee to rebut the claims in Comey’s book and impugn Comey’s character, including launching a “Lyin’ Comey” website and distributing talking points to surrogates.

Sources close to Trump said the President was caught off guard by the personal nature of Comey’s attacks, including his description of Trump as a mafia boss and his wry jabs at Trump’s appearance, including his description of Trump’s face as “slightly orange, with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles.”

Trump has personally asked his aides to defend him on television against Comey’s claims, according to people familiar with the requests. But some of his advisers have expressed concern that a sufficient defense isn’t in place to counter Comey’s upcoming television interview spree.
