‘On The Verge Of Tears’; Comey’s Book Details Private Meeting With Obama, It’ll Make You Sick

A passage in a new book by former FBI Director James Comey details a private meeting he had with former President Barack Obama after the 2016 presidential election — and it will make you sick.

In his new book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” Comey spews a lot tabloid gossip and makes several salacious statements about President Donald Trump.

But he also describes a private conversation he had with Obama in the Oval Office after Trump handily defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.

The Federalist’s Ben Domenech uploaded a screenshot of the passage in Comey’s new book, where he admitted he was “on the verge of tears” when Obama told him he didn’t have any effect on the election.

Here’s how social media users reacted to the bombshell passage:

There are a few ways to interpret Comey’s passage.

He was either “on the verge of tears” because he believed he had an effect on the election by announcing in late October 2016 that the FBI had reopened the Clinton email investigation.

One the other hand, maybe Comey was saddened by the idea of Trump winning the presidency.

At the time, he was leading the FBI and would be tasked with working closely with the Trump administration to protect the nation.

But maybe he was so upset by the thought of working with Trump that he needed Obama to console him. Neither scenerios look good for Comey.
