Trump slams 'slimeball,' 'slippery,' 'not smart,' 'out of whack' Comey in frenetic tweetstorm

Angry over new revelations from the former FBI director and his forthcoming book, President Trump again attacked James Comey in a series of tweets Sunday morning:

Trump did pause — to borrow his phrase — his "Twitter stomp" to address two other topics. He critiqued the media for connecting his "Mission Accomplished" tweet about Syria to former President George W. Bush's use of the phrase about Iraq. He declared it "such a great Military term" which we should "Use often!"

The president also took a break from Comey bashing to comment on the criminal investigation of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen. "Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past," he wrote. "All lawyers are deflated and concerned!"
