Chris Wallace, the anchor for “Fox News Sunday,” cut through all the spin on James Comey’s new book, saying he was surprised at the former FBI Director’s “b**chy” tone and the complete lack of evidence of wrongdoing on the part of President Trump.
While Democrats were hoping and praying for hard evidence that could lead to their ultimate dream of impeachment, Comey has offered little more than emotional opinions.
For example, Comey claims President Trump is “untethered to truth” and “ego-driven,” describing his presidency as a “forest fire.”
With opinions, not facts, littering the Comey literary landscape, Wallace explains that there is really nothing at all new in the book.
“What strikes me is how little new there is in the book,” Wallace said. “We get a lot of opinions, unpleasant opinions of the president, by James Comey. But in terms of hard facts, people are talking about bombshells; there are none.”
He added, “It seems to me that the real story in this book is that there’s no new hard evidence of any crime, of anything illegal, and it doesn’t really change the equation on President Trump.”

Wallace notes that he was taken aback by the tone of Comey’s book, referring to it as “b**chy.”
“The other thing that surprises me, frankly, is how b**chy the book is,” he said. “Comey goes out of his way to say that the president isn’t as tall as he thought he was. He checked out the size of his hands the first time they shook hands.”

Comey would also take other shots at Trump’s physical appearance – “bright white half-moons” beneath his eyes, and “his face appeared slightly orange” – and fashion sense – arguing that Trump’s ties are “too long.”
This kind of effeminate nitpicking will hurt the former FBI Director more than it will Trump, Wallace predicted.
“One could argue that by getting into the kind of political food fight, that James Comey has done more damage to his own reputation than he has President Trump’s,” he argued.
