New theory: Comey a victim of Trump’s sexual predator techniques



You just knew intersectionality had to reach out and embrace Comey’s testimony. I can already see the day when we hear how Comey, when he was forced to interact with Trump, was sharing the black experience at the hands of a slave owner. For now, though, it’s enough for us to learn that Comey — complete with his “instincts,” “concerns,” “uneasiness,” and other deeply felt emotions during his “awkward” moments in Trump’s company — is the precise equivalent of a woman suffering at the hands of a sexual predator.

Yup, you heard that right. This physically overwhelming (he is 6’8″), seasoned prosecutor, and political operative, who heads one of the most powerful agencies in the world, is a victim, folks. A victim!!

How do I know? Because a New York Times op-ed tells me so:

As I listened to James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, tell the Senate Intelligence Committee about his personal meetings and phone calls with President Trump, I was reminded of something: the experience of a woman being harassed by her powerful, predatory boss. There was precisely that sinister air of coercion, of an employee helpless to avoid unsavory contact with an employer who is trying to grab what he wants.

After reading Mr. Comey’s earlier statement, I tweeted about this Wednesday night, and immediately heard from other women who had seen that narrative emerge. How recognizable it was that Mr. Comey was “stunned” to find himself in these potentially compromising positions. His incredulity, mixed with President Trump’s circling attempts to get his way, were poignant. For a woman who has spent a lifetime wrestling with situations where men have power they can abuse, this was disturbingly familiar.


The central business of this intimate dinner was Mr. Trump’s insistence: “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.” Mr. Comey immediately recognized that this was a press for something he did not want to give. He froze: “I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed.”

That reaction — the choice of stillness, responses calculated to neither encourage nor offend that characterized so many of his dealings with Mr. Trump — is so relatable for any woman. During his testimony, Mr. Comey was asked why he had not responded more robustly, why he had not told Mr. Trump that he, the president, was acting inappropriately or reported his behavior immediately to others in authority.

Mr. Comey expressed regret that he had not been “stronger” about it, but explained that it was all he could do to focus on not saying the wrong thing. In other words, he wanted to avoid granting any favor while avoiding the risk of direct confrontation — a problem so deeply resonant for women.

There’s a lot more in the same vein at the link if you have the stomach for it.

Being so afraid of shadows that may or may not be his own, Comey is lucky he had only one meeting with Obama. After all, Obama killed his gay lover.

I know this is true because it was on the internet and, like the MSM, everything there is true. Right?

@Bill… Deplorable Me: Being all alone with Trump, what would Hillary think??? Was he was going to be the next Seth Rich?? OMG call Hillary or Barry and see what kind of crap this could be spun into, some fairy tale the MSM will suck up and, no evidence… doesnt matter, hell they ignored a mountain of real evidence, they didn’t care the Primaries were fixed( a very real attack on our democratic system)But wow they realllly hate me after I looked at the Pervs laptop they said I dont have ANY credibility, oh dear write a memo, Memo would they really fall for that? Not as fast as I would fall for a bullet in a DC street. Whats this???!!! A suicide memo on my desk!


sooner or later the press will find a suicide note. if obama killed his gay lover, he can kill comey

@Bill… Deplorable Me:

and, like the MSM, everything there is true. Right?

absolutely. Yes, I can just see Comey, paralyzed when Lynch told him to call the investigation a ‘matter’, He was afraid she was hitting on him and ……, wait… I have that story confused with…….hmmmm……

@Redteam: No doubt, after dealing with Obama, Lynch, Hillary and the rest of the scum in Obama’s administration, Comey thinks everyone lies. That’s all he’s dealt with. Too bad he could not imagine a President that DOESN’T lie with every breath.
