And here I thought Hillary Clinton acted like a bitter ex who can’t let go.
Okay, she does.
But coming in a close second has got to be James Comey.
President Trump fired him two years ago, and the guy just cannot let go of it. He too is the bitter ex who, two years after getting dumped tells anyone unlucky enough to be in earshot, “He didn’t dump me! I dumped him!”
In fact, CNN decided to “celebrate” the two-year anniversary of James Comey getting dumped by holding a Town Hall starring the bitter ex himself, James Comey.
I guess when your ratings are in the toilet, you might as well air just about anything.
But who in his right mind actually said, “You know what we should do? We should hold a Town Hall with someone who has zero influence on public policy, isn’t running for office and has spent the last two years acting like a bitter ex who still hasn’t gotten over a breakup.”
And who was the dimwitted idiot in charge who said, “Hey! That’s a terrific idea! We’re talking ratings GOLD!”
I cannot believe this lunatic was in charge of the FBI. He needs a padded room and some anti-psychotic drugs, stat— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) May 10, 2019
But the part about this Bitter Ex Town Hall that really has me giggling is the timing.
Because on the very day it was to air, the news broke that the FBI knew prior to using it for a FISA warrant that the Steele Dossier was garbage. And Bitter Ex Comey used it anyway.

But it should be obvious why this Bitter Ex is hellbent on making the rounds and talking to as many friendly news outlets as humanly possible right now.
It’s all about narrative-framing.
Which is exactly what Julie Kelly explained in her column “The Real ‘Bombshells’ Are About to Hit Their Targets:”
So the targets of the inspector general’s probe and their media pals now are spinning hard in preparation of the report’s release.
Trust me. Comey knows the truth is coming out very soon. He knows that he and his FBI buddies fudged the facts — and outright lied – so they could spy on an opposition campaign in order to meddle in a Presidential election.
It won’t be long before the shirt hits the flan and Noble Warrior for the Truth Comey will be exposed as the partisan political hack and dishonest cretin he really is. So he’s hoping to control the media narrative in order to get out in front of what just might put him in serious legal jeopardy.
This is utterly insane. Acting like a single sourced, unvetted tip from some foreign rando overseas is *enough to justify FBI spying on a US presidential campaign* is totally bonkers.— Buck Sexton (@BuckSexton) May 10, 2019
Comey is a sanctimonious fraud. And the walls are closing in on him. https://t.co/ELB2kJKVFd
Now, I’m not a defense attorney. But it seems to me with Attorney General Barr and the DOJ Inspector General reviewing the genesis of the FBI’s spying on the Trump campaign, it would be smart for the Bitter Ex Comey to shut the hell up. After all, everything he says can be used against him.
But like a bitter ex with a grudge, Comey just keeps flapping his gums to anyone stupid enough to listen.
And clearly CNN is just that stupid.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if CNN’s Bitter Ex Town Hall made Comey’s legal troubles even more, well, troubling?
