Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly once tried to blend into the curtains in the White House Blue Room in order to avoid being approached by President Trump. According to a New York Times report published Thursday, Comey tried to blend into the Blue Room´s blue curtains during a White House visit for a ceremony honoring law enforcement officials who provided security at inauguration. Comey recounted the incident to his friend, Brookings Institution fellow Benjamin Wittes, who told the story to The Times. Comey, who is 6 feet 8 inches tall, was wearing a dark blue suit and stood near
Comments: You´ve got to be kidding. This is beyond weird. I´m really starting to question the mental competency of Comey. Who behaves like that?? We have really entered into the Twilight Zone. And it´s just going to get worse and worse with this fake investigation.
[…] “This was a general preoccupation of Comey’s in the months he and Trump overlapped—and the difference between this relationship and his regard for Obama (which was deep) was profound and palpable”…
As I´ve said before, I think Comey had a very high opinion of himself! Just because he´s tall he thinks he´s above everyone else. If this story is true, he´s just a very little, nasty man who deserved to be fired. Way to go, Mr. President! You made a good call!
If Comey was this repelled by Trump, why didn´t he resign??? With his (undeserved) stellar reputation, he could have gotten a much better job. Why stay and work for a man you despise when you can earn millions somewhere else?
Little did Comey know he was hiding right next to the hidden White House microphone. Next up.... CNN is going to report that the Trump White House has released a tape of this event with 18 minutes missing in the middle.
Sure glad the drapes weren´t gold or orange or Comey would´ve had to borrow a pantsuit from Her Thighness. Maybe there´s a memo on that. This story is a complete crock. You could just as easily say the military members were trying to blend in with the chandeliers or wall sconces because of their brass buttons and polished flash. Actually, ALL the men were wearing DARK suits and Comey´s blue suit STANDS OUT from the others and makes him MORE noticeable.
If Comey is that infested with liberal leftist mental disease, he has been a sleeper agent. His enbtire personal is bubbling with Trump hate so much he says he tried to ´blend in with the curtains" to try to avoid touching or "fake hugging" the President of the United States. Where has his LEO objectivity been all these years? He is a fake agent, a creeping troll placed in secretively all those years ago by growing leftists. His whole purpose has been to undermine the nation´s strength! No wonder he has popped up at every one of Hillary Clinton´s self made scandals to help smooth the road for that Bwitch!
Comey has destroyed the reputation of the FBI rank and file folks. They are all contaminated with his stench of politics and his affinity for Obama. Now they bring in Muller who is a butt buddy with Comey. The elitist prosecutors are now in charge of us common folks. They will bend the law to their liking so be on guard.
A federal district court judge has overturned the sentence of Lee Boyd Malvo, one of the two people convicted in D.C.-area Beltway sniper attacks nearly 15 years ago, according to a ruling released Friday. (Snip) Malvo appealed to the court saying he should not have been sentenced to life without parole because he was 17 years old at the time of the murders and he based his appeal on the Supreme Court ruling in Miller v. Alabama. The decision in the Supreme Court case ruled juveniles are constitutionally different from adults for the purposes of sentencing "because juveniles have diminished culpability
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) spoke Friday at an LGBT rights event at the Pride Center at Equality Park of South Florida, where she touted how liberals in the Democratic Party only voted for the nation´s defense spending bill for fiscal year 2011 so they could repeal "Don´t Ask, Don´t Tell." "Don´t tell anybody I told you this," Pelosi said, before explaining how she was able to get liberal Democrats onboard to support the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, the annual federal law that specifies the Defense Department´s budget and expenditures. Pelosi described how in 2010 Democrats put an
The New York Times has been holding up the torch for truth in the age of fake news and alternative facts—but one of its political reporters, Jonathan Martin, has no qualms in weaving a few alternative facts of his own. After he lifted a photograph from another journalist and presented it without attribution, Martin doubled down on his lie and claimed he had no idea it was the other journalist’s photo. The New York Times has been holding up the torch for truth in the age of fake news and alternative facts—but one of its political reporters, Jonathan Martin, has
WASHINGTON – Rep. Anthony G. Brown (D-Md.) last week introduced legislation that would require “good cause” for the president to dismiss the director of the FBI, while calling President Trump’s decision to fire James B. Comey “disturbing.” Trump on May 9 dismissed the FBI director, subsequently producing memos from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Comey’s job performance. Rosenstein criticized Comey’s handling of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in 2015, stating that the FBI director had made serious mistakes. Comey’s firing came six days after he briefed
A GoFundMe page was launched on Thursday to replace the glasses owned by Ben Jacobs, a reporter for the Guardian who was allegedly body slammed by then-candidate for Montana´s U.S. House seat Greg Gianforte on Wednesday. The GoFundMe page was originally titled: "Help Ben Jacobs buy new glasses" but has since changed to "Help Protect Journalists," after Jacobs responded to the fundraising page by saying he appreciated the gesture, but would like all donations to go to the Committee to Protest Journalists. (Snip) In just one day, the page has racked up just over $5,000 in donations as of press
Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities
It is the final day of Donald and Melania Trump´s first official tour as President and First Lady, and it looks like 47-year-old Melania is eager to go out with a sartorial bang. After having made a chic arrival in Sicily, where her husband is attending a G7 summit, Melania stepped out Friday morning in the coastal down of Catania, making a very stylish statement in a $51,500 coat by Dolce & Gabanna, which was covered with colorful 3-D flower embellishments - and came complete with a matching $1,630 purse by the Italian luxury label. However, the First Lady traded the statement
A leading young Democrat and de Blasio administration employee has a secret taste for sickening kiddie porn that involves baby girls as young as 6 months old, court papers revealed Friday. Jacob Schwartz, 29, was busted for allegedly keeping more than 3,000 disgusting images and 89 videos on a laptop after downloading the filth from the internet. The illegal smut shows “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct… on an adult male,” court papers say. Schwartz’ father — labor lawyer and Democratic insider Arthur Schwartz — called his son’s case “a
Two Chinese J-10 fighter jets flew within 200 yards of a U.S. Navy P-3 surveillance plane approximately 150 miles southeast of Hong Kong in international airspace this week, a U.S. defense official told Fox News on Friday. The official said the Chinese fighter jets were “unsafe” in their actions toward the U.S. reconnaissance plane Wednesday. One of the Chinese jets flew out in front of the Navy plane before conducting a series of slow turns which the American crew considered unsafe, the official added. Describing why cutting off another plane at high speeds in the air is dangerous, the official said, “You
President Trump is still thinking through the arguments as he decides whether the United States should withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords, senior administration officials said Friday. "I think his views are evolving," White House national economic council director Gary Cohn told reporters in Sicily. "And he came here to learn and he came here to get smarter." "The president is thinking about what his options are and is taking in what he learned from world leaders today," Cohn said. "If he were standing here, he would tell you he feels much more knowledgable on the topic today, even though
The anti-Trump venom from the mainstream media has become so virulent that broadcasters and reporters alike risk becoming little more than extensions of the late-night “comedic” lineup, bashing the President without regard for truth or factual accuracy. And above all, most of these journalists realize, and sometimes admit, that they want to help the Democrats win the next election. (Snip) “The 2018 midterm elections are still more than a year away, but the Democrats are already hoping to flip this house,” said Reid on her show, telling Democratic candidate Linda Weber, “So we will be paying attention to that race,
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today announced it filed a Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice and the National Security Agency (NSA) for information about Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s communications with the two agencies concerning the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election, the hacking of DNC computers, the suspected communications between Russia and Trump campaign/transition officials, and the unmasking of the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team who were identified pursuant to intelligence collection activities (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice and
A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday. Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one. Another spoke to DailyMail.com
Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming even sooner if the U.S. retreats from its pledge to cut carbon dioxide pollution, scientists said. That’s because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. President Donald Trump, who once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax, said in a tweet Saturday that he would make his “final decision” this coming week on whether the United States stays in or leaves the 2015 Paris climate change accord in which nearly every nation agreed to curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Leaders of seven wealthy democracies, at a summit in Sicily, urged Trump
After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. (Snip) In the New York Magazine article, called “Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried,” the predominant mood is the fury — not the resignation, worry, or her
Angela Merkel has stunningly claimed Europe can no longer rely on the US, just one day Donald Trump frustrated world leaders at the G7 meeting in Italy. The German Chancellor urged the European Union to stick together in the face of new uncertainty stemming from the US and other challenges. Merkel said Sunday at a campaign event in Bavaria: ´The times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days.´ The comments came after the G7 countries were unable to agree to a deal that would see the 2015
(Video) Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the public was “getting weary” that Democrats have not done enough to begin the process of impeaching President Donald Trump. Partial transcript as follows: REID: Congresswoman, on the subject of being more aggressive, you have openly talked about the fact that this president has put himself in a position where impeachment is on the table but your party, the Democratic party is very reluctant, The New York Times has an article out last week about how hesitant Democratic leadership, in particular, are to call for Donald Trump’s impeachment. In
Hillary Clinton’s inner circle is concerned that the “resistance” that cropped up in the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral win isn’t embracing the failed Democratic Presidential candidate as their de facto leader. As of late, Hillary has taken to marketing herself as the leader of the anti-Trump resistance, Tweeting about her defeat, haranguing Trump in public appearances and “persisting” despite her loss. It’s clear from Clinton’s Twitter feed, paid speeches, and comments that she wants to lead the mostly female opposition to Trump’s policy agenda. But according to sources close to Clinton’s inner circle, she’s yet again failing in
Tiger Woods was arrested and charged with DUI in Jupiter, Fla., records show. The professional golfer, 41, was nabbed around 3 a.m. Monday on Military Trail just south of Indian Creek Parkway, according to WPBF 25 News. He was released under his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m., Palm Beach County Sheriff´s Office records show.
French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged to a French newspaper that his intense handshake with President Trump ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels "wasn´t innocent," but instead was meant as a show of resolve, The Associated Press reported Sunday. "One must show that you won´t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche, according to the AP. The handshake between Macron and Trump on Thursday drew attention for its visible intensity, with both pairs of knuckles turning white from pressure. [snip] While Macron reportedly sought to convey strength with the
It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most
The sun has set on students’ request to change the date of their prom. Students at an elite New York City high school petitioned to change the date of their senior prom – scheduled for June 3 – because it conflicts with the Muslim observance of Ramadan, but the school has denied the request, the New York Post reported. (Snip) Still, Muslim students said eating after sundown is not the only issue; they say there are other religious rules that come into play. “You’re not supposed to listen to music during Ramadan, so it’s not really allowed,” Shabbir said.

CNN’s W. Kamau Bell devoted a recent episode of his series United Shades of America to exploring Muslim and Arab communities. Aside from some interesting vignettes, the program is left-wing, anti-Trump propaganda that firmly establishes the network’s political bias. Bell also serves up some historical distortions of the sort spoonfed to undergraduates on politically-correct campuses, such as the claim that Islam has always been present in the U.S. “Islam has always been part of the American fabric,” one Muslim man in Detroit tells Bell at an anti-Trump event. “A lot of people think that Islam is from a foreign country,
I know it’s theoretically wrong for a Republican candidate to smack around an annoying liberal journalist, but that still doesn’t mean that I care. Our ability to care is a finite resource, and, in the vast scheme of things, millions of us have chosen to devote exactly none of it toward caring enough to engage in fussy self-flagellation because of what happened to Slappy La Brokenshades. Sorry, not sorry. Please split wide headlines
