James Comey Needs a “Safe Space”

James Comey was one of the most powerful men in Washington, D.C. as he has worked for several Presidents and knew everyone of any importance in Washington D.C. But when President Trump took office and called him in for a one-on-one meeting, Comey felt intimidated and afraid. Liberals compare Mr. Comey’s fears of Trump to what they claim women feel when they are being pressured or attacked by a predatory man, and the liberal Democrat assumption is that all men are predators.

As I listened to James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, tell the Senate Intelligence Committee about his personal meetings and phone calls with President Trump, I was reminded of something: the experience of a woman being harassed by her powerful, predatory boss.

One can equate from this description of fear to the need our snowflake college students have for “safe spaces” where they can seek refuge and shelter from the evil world where not everyone agrees with them and their immature, unrealistic, socialist ideas. James Maybe Comey just needed a safe space so he could avoid the reality of a President Trump with whom he would have to associate.

Does anyone buy this line of leftist crap? An employer (Trump) has every right to privately interview an employee (Comey), so where does the fear and uncertainty come into play? One would think that a request of loyalty for the President’s policies and practices is also not out of line to ask of an employee. Also, James Comey is a mature man who, as Director of the FBI, has certainly learned how to stand up to other alpha-males and continue to function. All Comey was doing with his pretense of fear was doubling down on the left’s claim that Donald Trump is a mean, ruthless person who should be removed from the position of President of the United States.

But maybe Mr. Comey is not the strong man and the advocate for justice he appears to be. When Loretta Lynch, serving at the time as Barack Obama’s Attorney General, told him to call Hillary’s email investigation a “matter” instead of an investigation, he also crumbled at this order from a his female boss, so maybe our James Comey is just a wuss who goes along to get along, and in the case of Donald Trump, he no longer wanted his liberal pals to see him getting along with a Republican president, so he balked and turned on Trump for purely political reasons.
