James Comey Blasts Fox News, Republicans…Live On Fox News



Sometimes, today’s American political landscape almost seems as though it is a parody of itself. Some of the things that happen are so totally ridiculous that they would seem more suited to a Saturday Night Live sketch than actual, real politics and diplomacy – which, inevitably, makes life a whole lot more difficult for those poor folks who actually have to write the scripts for those Saturday Night Live sketches.

What happened recently live on Fox News is yet another classic example of the utterly ludicrous and unimaginable coming to life. Fox News is the Trumpite GOP network that reliably sides with President Donald Trump and the Republican party as a whole. No matter how completely insane the actions or deeds of the Trump administration become, Fox News is always there to defend them. Yet, somehow, they found themselves broadcasting a furious James Comey absolutely laying into the Republicans and, indeed, Fox News itself. Which I find just incredible.

“At some point, someone has to stand up and in the face of fear of Fox News, fear of their base, fear of mean tweets, stand up for the values of this country and not slink away into retirement but stand up and speak the truth,” Comey said. “I find it frustrating to be here answering questions about things that are far less important than the values this country is built upon.”

Later on in the interview, the former FBI director, who was fired by President Trump, was asked whether he feels that he “shares responsibility” for “the FBI’s reputation taking a big hit”, to which he answered:

“No. The FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit because the president of the United States with his acolytes has lied about it constantly. And in the face of those lies, a whole lot of good people who watch your network [Fox News] believe that nonsense. That’s a tragedy. That will be undone eventually, but that damage has nothing to do with me.”

Asked about other Republicans who have supported the President (even when he has attacked the FBI and other such vital crime-fighting American institutions) as well as those who have refused to voice any opinion on the matter at all, Comey did not hold back on his thoughts:

“Their silence is shameful. Someday, they gotta explain to their grandchildren what they did today.”

That is truly amazing. The Fox News executives and producers are probably still baffled right now as to how on earth they let this happen. Hopefully, some of their viewers might have finally woken up to the truth about President Trump.
