President Donald Trump participated in a live interview on Thursday as he tore into former FBI Director James Comey, Stormy Daniels, and The Department of Justice. He also talked about Kanye West. The no holds barred interview had liberals going insane, and it was fantastic.
After greeting their guest, the hosts of Fox & Friends asked the president about the town hall that James Comey did the night before with CNN where he spent the entire time berating Trump and calling him “morally unfit” to be President of the United States.” Trump, as is his style, was not politically correct as he tore a strip off of the former FBI director.
“Look, Comey is a leaker and he is a liar and not only on this stuff, he’s been leaking for years,” the president said. “Legally, he did an illegal act and he said it himself in order to get a special counsel against me.” The president went on to say that Comey “is guilty of crimes and if we had a Justice Department that was doing their job instead of…,” and that’s when host Steve Doocy interrupted.
“It is your Justice Department, Mr. President. You’re the Republican in charge of it, you got a Republican running it,” Doocy said. The president acknowledged that and hinted that he could start to take a more hands-on approach with the Department of Justice.
“I have taken the position, and I don’t have to take this position and maybe I’ll change, that I will not be involved with the Justice Department,” Trump said. “I may change my mind at some point because what is going on is a disgrace.”
“Our Justice Department should be looking at that kind of stuff, not the nonsense of collusion with Russia. There is no collusion with me and Russia, and everyone knows that,” Trump said, referring to the crimes he says Comey committed. “He leaked classified information to get a special counsel and leaked the memos which are classified – the memos were about me and he didn’t write those memos accurately. He wrote a lot of phony stuff.”
His warning to the Department of Justice became more ominous when he signaled that payback was coming when the Mueller investigation is over. “They have this witch hunt going on with the people there that shouldn’t be there, I’ve taken the position that I will not be involved with the Justice Department,” Trump said. “I will wait until this is over — it’s all lies and it’s a horrible thing going on.”
For the first time, President Donald Trump acknowledged that his attorney, Michael Cohen, whose office was raided and who is being investigated by the same type of people who are out to get the president, did represent him in proceedings with porn star Stormy Daniels.
“Michael represents me, like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal, he represented me,” Trump said. “And from what I’ve seen, he did absolutely nothing wrong. There were no campaign funds going into this.”
Trump added that the investigation into Cohen is not about him. “This doesn’t have to do with me,” he said. “Michael is a businessman. He’s got a business. He also practices law. I would say, probably, the big thing is his business. I have nothing to do with his business.”
The president even took time to praise his newest fan, Kanye West, who shocked the world on Wednesday when he expressed his love for the president and tweeted photos of a signed Make America Great Again hat and another photo of himself wearing the hat.
“He’s got good taste,” the president said. “Kanye looks and he sees black unemployment at the lowest it’s been in the history of our country,” he said. “He’s smart. He says ‘You know what, Trump is doing a much better job than the Democrats did.’”
The wild interview was reminiscent of the president’s time on the campaign trail in 2016, and his supporters loved it. As for liberals, they were outraged, the same as they were on Wednesday with Kanye West and the same as they have been every day since Election Day 2016.
