Here’s a little tip for President Donald Trump. If you are going to use a bombing as a distraction to knock former FBI Director James Comey out of the news cycle, you shouldn’t whine about him on Twitter 24 hours later.

On Friday, Comey and his new book A Higher Loyalty dominated the news until Trump ordered a missile strike against Syria hours after Fox & Friends suggested doing so would be a good way to change the media’s focus.

It worked. But on Sunday morning, Trump viciously attacked Comey and his book in an obsessive Twitter tantrum that will likely put Comey back on top of the news cycle.

First, Trump accused him of trying to win former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s favor.

The problem is that Comey already had a job. He took the job as FBI Director in 2013, a position with a 10-year term. Frankly, it would have been Comey’s best interest not to announce another email probe as he did in October. But he did anyway because he thought it was the right thing to do. If anything, Trump owes his job to Comey.

Trump then accused him of committing crimes.

Again, Trump has no basis for his accusations. Comey has not been the subject of any investigation. He hasn’t been arrested or charged with a crime. And considering Trump appointees and Congress control the Justice Department are Republicans if he committed a crime they would have charged him by now.

Also, Comey’s book is one of the most anticipated reads of 2018 and currently has 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads, and it hasn’t even been released yet. The book also ranks 20 on the Amazon most sold list, meaning it will likely be a hot seller.

Trump then speculated about Comey’s passages concerning former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Comey did not throw Lynch “under the bus” as the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post blared in their headline.

He dismissed the idea that former President Bill Clinton made some kind of deal with Lynch in a tarmac meeting in 2016. While he was concerned about her not recusing herself from the investigation, he also said that Lynch didn’t play much of a role in it and that she told him she would accept any recommendation he made regarding the case.

Trump then fired off another tweet denying that he asked Comey for his loyalty.

As we all know, Trump suggested that Comey drop an investigation into disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who took a plea deal last year for lying to the FBI.

He refused to drop the investigation and was later fired by Trump. It certainly appears that loyalty is exactly what Trump expected.

And then there’s this tweet:

Seriously, Comey can’t be knocked off the news cycle if Trump keeps whining about him.
