Her ridiculous book of post-election complaints, What Happened, is being outsold by James Comey’s anti-Trump diatribe.
A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, sold more copies in its first week than Hillary Clinton’s memoir and Michael Wolff’s tell-all combined. 600,000 copies flew off of the shelves. Comey’s publishers are licking their chops.
Clinton’s book sold 300,000 copies while Wolff’s sold 200,000 in their first week.
In Clinton’s defense, the drivel that she wrote is less offensive than what Comey churned out. Clinton’s work focused on self-pity and making up excuses for her loss while Comey focuses on bashing President Trump.
Comey’s book is full of quotes like the following: “As I found myself thrust into the Trump orbit, I once again was having flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the mob. 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 the truth.”
Comey was the director of the FBI and he’s admitting that he was biased against Trump from the start. Calling Trump and his crew liars is a serious allegation coming from someone with Comey’s clout.
If Comey really believed that the country was in the control of an amoral monster, he would consider it an emergency.
However, he follows up that complaint and similar ones with petty attacks on Trump’s looks.
“His face appeared slightly orange, with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assume he placed small tanning goggles, and impressively coiffed, bright blond hair, which on close inspection looked to be all his. I remember wondering how long it must take him in the morning to get that done,” Comey wrote.
