Trump Throws Tantrum Over ‘Untruthful Slime Ball’ Comey: ‘He Should Be Prosecuted’

President Donald Trump waited little more than 12 hours after excerpts of Jim Comey's unreleased memoir leaked to the press to attack the former FBI Director he once praised.

Trump Friday morning accused Comey of being a "LEAKER & LIAR," "weak," an "untruthful slime ball," and "a terrible Director of the FBI."

The New York Times offered this insight into Comey's book:

“This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values,” Mr. Comey writes in the book, saying his service to Mr. Trump recalled for him the days when he investigated the mob in New York. “The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth.”
