During former FBI Director James Comey's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos Sunday night, he admitted that his wife supported Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and that his wife and daughters marched in the anti-Trump Women's March. He also described his first meeting with Trump, whom he described as "morally unfit" to be president.
While he didn't elaborate on his political differences with his wife, Patrice Failor, Comey admitted, "My wife and girls marched in the Women’s March the day after President Trump’s inauguration."
"At least my four daughters — probably all five of my kids, wanted Hillary Clinton to be the first woman president," said Comey. "I know my amazing spouse did."
Comey told Stephanopoulos that he didn't vote in the 2016 election, saying it would have been improper for the FBI director to take a side.
Failor said in the interview, "I wanted a woman president really badly, and I supported Hillary Clinton. A lot of my friends worked for her. And I was devastated when she lost." Failor, a foster care advocate and counselor, has been married to Comey for 31 years.
The former FBI director painted a devastating profile of the president, describing him as "morally unfit" to hold office, though "not in the way I often hear people talk about it."
"I don't buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on. I don't think he's medically unfit to be president. I think he's morally unfit to be president," said Comey. "A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they're pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person's not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds. And that's not a policy statement. Again, I don't care what your views are on guns or immigration or taxes."
