Former FBI Director James Comey: Trump Morally Unfit to Be President
Former FBI director James Comey.

He may sell a few books off this one. 

Former FBI director James Comey gave a highly publicized interview on ABC Sunday night to promote his new book "A Higher Loyalty." Comey wastes no time ripping into Trump, starting with his appearance. 

Here are some early takeaways.

On Meeting Trump for First Time

"I was nervous," Comey admitted when asked about his first time meeting then president-elect Trump. "He had impressively coifed hair, his tie was too long -- he was slightly orange up close, likely from tanning goggles."

On Comparing Trump to Mob Boss

Comey said it's "very strange to compare [Trump] to a mob boss." Comey then added that with Trump, it would appear "truth is not a high value."

On Being James Comey During Last 10 Days of Election

"It sucked, it felt like I was alone and everyone hated me."

On Public Embrace With Trump Two Days After Taking Office

Trump wanted to establish dominance, Comey said.

On Their Dinner

"I expect loyalty, I need loyalty. And I did not reply," Comey said about his dinner with the president. 

"You will always get honesty from me. And he paused and then he said "honest loyalty" as if he was proposing some compromise or a deal," Comey explained. 

On Being Fired

"That's crazy," Comey said his first thought was after learning of his firing. Comey said he drank red wine out of a paper cup on the plane ride back from Los Angeles. 

On Russia

"It's possible," Comey said on whether the Russians have something on President Trump. Comey said it's unlikely, but he wasn't sure.

On Trump as President

"He is morally unfit to be president," Comey said on Trump. Comey said he doesn't believe Trump is mentally unfit to be president.
