Trump Is Desperate for Affirmation – So Says James Comeyby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

A few months after Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury took bookshelves by storm and we are faced with another book that seeks to lift the lid on some of what supposedly goes on behind the closed doors of Donald Trump’s White House – which, whether or not you believe some of the claims being made, remains one of the most fascinating aspects of world politics right now. President Trump has continued to fight against various accusations surrounding Russian collusion – continuing to be investigated by the FBI – as well as building tension surrounding his lawyer, Michael Cohen, who appeared to offer hush money to porn actress Stormy Daniels without Trump’s knowledge (allegedly, and according to video footage of the President himself).

The crazy ride that is Trump’s first term in office really doesn’t end there. James Comey, whom the President fired during the investigation into Russian collusion, is on the media trail to promote his new book – and, at a CNN event this week, the former FBI director pulled no punches with regard to how he views the President and how he runs office. Comey has, in his tome, laid down an account which is being referred to in the wider press as ‘damning’, and that the Commander in Chief makes decisions based upon his own ego – to fulfil a personal and emotional need, as opposed to on a logical basis.

In conversation with Anderson Cooper for CNN, Comey pulled even fewer punches. “(Trump’s) only reference point is internal – ‘what will bring me what I need, what will fill this hole in me – get me the affirmation I crave’ – that is deeply concerning,” he advised. Comey’s critics, however, will likely be quick to rebut that the publication of such as book is being mounted as his own ego-stroking exercise – though regardless of reasons as for why it is being published, the volume will likely go down as one of controversy for the man in charge. It’s being reported that the book, ‘A Higher Loyalty’, won’t have any effect on the existing investigation into the legality of Trump’s election campaign – but what it may well do is offer a few more insights into the world behind the current White House – ones which won’t sit well with neither the President’s contemporaries nor his critics. Will Comey’s tell-all be a best-seller? Let’s wait and see shortly.
