Comey Rips Trump, “Sad Red Hats” In Scathing Op-Ed

From a new op-ed by James Comey:

The longer it goes on, the less it means. The impact diminishes, the power of it shrinks. It no longer feels as though the most powerful human on the planet is after you.

It feels as though a strange and slightly sad old guy is yelling at you to get off his lawn, echoed by younger but no less sad people in red hats shouting, “Yeah, get off his lawn!”

I don’t mean to suggest Trump is not dangerous. The horrific betrayal of allies in northern Syria demonstrates that an impetuous and amoral leader can do great harm, even in shrunken form.
