White House counselor Kellyanne Conway went to President Donald Trump’s defense on Friday morning as usual in response to former FBI Director James Comey’s bombshell new book.
In excerpts of the book, Comey describes Trump’s behavior as unethical and compared him to a mob boss.
When asked about that description, Conway called Comey a “disgruntled ex-employee” who is “retroactively putting his own spin” on the few meetings he had with Trump before he was fired just to “sell books.”
Conway then brought up Comey’s upcoming interview on ABC with George Stephanopoulos in which he talks about the alleged tape of Trump’s “golden showers” adventure in a Moscow hotel with Russian prostitutes. Comey said:
“I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013. It’s possible, but I don’t know.”
In his book, Comey says that Trump:
“…Strongly denied the allegations, asking — rhetorically, I assumed — whether he seemed like a guy who needed the service of prostitutes.”
During the interview, Comey also referred to Trump’s marriage to Melania. Apparently, the First Lady has reason to believe that the pee-pee tape might exist, and Comey wondered “what kind of marriage” Trump has with Melania.
As we now know, it’s a marriage in which Trump cheats on Melania a lot. Trump allegedly had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006 just after Melania had given birth. Trump also allegedly had an affair with Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal around the same time.
Comey’s remarks about Trump’s marriage caused Conway to snap. She said:
“He’s a psychoanalyst, he’s giving advice on people look, he’s a marriage counselor. I find that particular excerpt to be really egregious and over the top and unacceptable. Frankly put, that’s none of his business.”

Trump would go on to attack Comey on Twitter not long after Conway’s appearance on i.
Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty” is set to be released next week.
