President Trump’s Twitter tirades against James B. Comey, the former FBI director he fired last May, continued on Wednesday morning.

The tweet was something of a head-scratcher, however, because it contradicted Trump’s own comments at the time about Comey’s firing.

Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!

Although his administration originally said Comey was removed because he mishandled the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server in 2016, Trump volunteered a different reason when he was interviewed on May 11 on NBC.

“When I decided to just do it, I said to myself, ‘This Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story,’” the president told NBC’s Lester Holt.

Comey has been making the rounds on television promoting his new book focused on his troublesome interactions with Trump, “A Higher Loyalty,” and the attention has vexed the media-obsessed president. Trump’s latest attack on the man he called “Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history” came as the president is at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida with the prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe.
