If you read my previous article about James Comey, you know that I mentioned in the end that the media would eventually get tired of him and return to Stormy Daniels. That article was published on Monday. It’s Wednesday. And already, the media has gotten tired of him. That’s gotta be some sort of record.
CNN’s Ana Navarro tweeted on Monday: “Maybe it’s just me… the more I hear from Comey, the more conflicted I feel. I want to believe him that this is all about loyalty to country and inviolable respect for the truth. But damn, the guy has a big ego, is selectively inconsistent. I find him obnoxiously self-righteous.”
It’s honestly astounding how quickly James Comey came to be even somewhat disliked by the media.
And Navarro wasn’t the only one who expressed dissatisfaction with Comey. Politico has suggested that Comey’s “white knighthood” was distracting from his story about the administration’s supposed misdeeds.
An op-ed on the Washington Post called Comey an “honest man”, but also called his memoir a “big mistake” and a seemingly “desperate” attempt at staying relevant.
Even the New York Times had a story condemning Comey, opining that Comey has become a lot more like Trump: “he has abetted his own transformation from a crucial witness to a character in the serial drama and nonstop spectacle of Trump’s life.”
Frankly, I find that comparison to be rather offensive but not entirely unexpected from the NYT. It’s entirely expected that they would insult Trump but not expected that they would insult Comey and even likening him to Trump.
But let’s try to view these things from a liberal’s point of view. How badly do you have to mess up for the media to get sick and tired of you even though you’ve been fighting a war with Trump the entire time? When someone expresses a conservative belief or thought, that person tends to be immediately shunned and attacked, forcing them to submission and apology. But Comey has done nothing short of being another typical Deep State Leftist at war with the POTUS and yet, he’s still being attacked by at least some members of the media who are theoretically in the same camp as Comey.
Again, how badly do you have to mess up for even your own people to dislike you when you’ve been striving to do precisely what they want you to do? Not to mention that this came surprisingly quickly.
I had predicted that Comey’s memoirs about Trump would eventually die out and the media would move on to something else, but I had also expected the media to milk that toxic cow for all its worth before moving on. The book has only come out YESTERDAY and the media has been sick of him since even before that.
Again, Navarro tweeted that on Monday, the day before Comey’s book came out. And she was already sick of him.
This whole storyline with Comey lasted about as long as the Democrats’ government shutdown. Of course, it’s not because of anything Comey has written in his book. It’s full of malarkey that the Left can’t get enough of. It’s been seemingly, given what the MSM sources have said, all about his ego and personality.
Now, I personally have not seen any interview with James Comey. I don’t care to watch a full hour of crap when I could be doing something far more productive. But there’s no doubt that the media and the Left have most, if not all, watched some interviews with James Comey. Furthermore, there’s no doubt that, aside from the Stormy Daniels story, James Comey was the biggest story for them to talk about.
They were hoping and even hyping this book to be the end or at least a key component in the destruction of Donald Trump. They were hanging on to every letter and word in that book and everything that came out of Comey’s mouth.
So you really have to be a narcissistic egomaniac to turn off people who are in your own side. And no, he’s not at all like Trump. Trump touts his accomplishments because virtually no one else will (have you even heard any story coming from the MSM about low black and Hispanic unemployment rates or Trump’s 50% approval rating?) But Trump never thinks himself better than everyone else in the room with him. That’s what the Left does.
The Academy Awards is one massive stink cloud of narcissism, egos and self-righteousness. Every member of the MSM acts as though every word they say is gospel and every word they type is sacred scripture. And those who wholly disagree with them are nothing but uncultured swine that don’t even deserve the time to be reading their “holy texts.”
And given James Comey is another Leftist, albeit as a bigger part of the Deep State, I’m not surprised that he shares the same common traits as his political peers. What I am surprised by, as I’ve said over and over again, is at how quickly people within his own political spectrum have come to grow tired of him.
It was likely inevitable, I suppose. Obama had soured on Comey eventually. So has former AG Loretta Lynch, as well as Hillary Clinton (though it’s arguably more understandable for her), and so did Trump before the President fired him.
Given all of these accounts, Comey is a pretty despicable person. Granted, I have my own reasons, as a conservative and Trump supporter, to dislike him, but it’s pretty interesting that even members of his own political side have come to at the very least dislike him.
And you really have to be a massive jerk in every aspect of your life for even the Left to dislike you despite your efforts against Trump.
“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth, I hate.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
