James Comey's ballyhooed hour long interview with ABC News is over.
In the final moments, Stephanopolous asks Comey if Trump is fit to hold the office of the president of the United States. To his everlasting credit , Comey, after a short explanation, emphatically and clearly said "no". He then explained that Donald Trump is morally unfit to lead this country.
Who can seriously argue this point? No one.
James Comey strikes me as an honest man who does the best he can to live up to his principles. In other words, a direct opposite of Donald Trump. Comey's flaw is that at times he seems a little like Hamlet in that he overthinks his choices and over explains his actions. He tells the audience not only why he did something but also why he didnt do the other thing he was thinking about doing.
Seeing this interview tonight and most of the controversies surrounding Comey laid out in a somewhat compact and concise format makes one thing perfectly clear - James Comey is ten times the man Donald Trump is.
It makes me wonder what is wrong with the conservative media in this country, that they think it is wise or fair to smear this man the way they have. I think the explanation of this smearing is found in understanding that the deplorables are still alive and kicking.
