The left has come up with a takeaway from fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week: The man who was in charge of the“world’s premier security and crime-fighting forces” is a victim of sexual harassment.
Elle compared Comey’s one-on-one meeting with President Donald Trump to a terrible date:
It goes like this: Comey’s new boss invites him out to a work dinner; when he arrives, he finds that what he assumed would be a group event has somehow turned into a one-on-one meeting. Comey is disturbed that his new boss calls him so often; whereas his previous supervisor had initiated just two in-person conversations with him in two years, the new one insists on having ‘nine one-on-one conversations’ in four months– ‘three in person and six on the phone.’ Those in-person conversations, like the ‘work dinner’ that wasn’t, have an air of uncomfortable intimacy; before beginning, the boss waits for everyone but Comey to clear the room.
Elle concluded that because Comey wouldn’t go along with his abuser, he was fired.
