According to President Trump, he never demanded loyalty from Director Comey, or even to drop the Flynn probe.
That’s quite a hilarious claim from the president considering we saw him doing JUST THAT on camera.
During a Q&A with reporters on Friday, ABC’s Jon Karl asked Trump, if he asked Comey for a pledge of loyalty. Comey claimed this—along with many other damning remarks—under oath during his testimony. Trump replied:
“I hardly know the man. I’m not going to say, I want you to pledge allegiance. Who would do that? Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath? I mean, think of it. I hardly know the man. It doesn’t make sense. No, I didn’t say that.””
But CNN found video of him doing just that during the campaign. He even made them raise their right hands and “solemnly swear,” as if to an American Flag. In fact, he went as far as to suggest that even if he is doing a terrible job, they still had to be loyal to him.
It’s insulting how oblivious the President thinks his own people are.
