Comey compares Trump to mob boss, Trump cries 'slime ball'

In his new book, "A Higher Loyalty," former FBI Director James Comey characterized President Donald Trump as a Mafia kingpin who has a warped notion of loyalty and utter disdain for the rule of law, and views the FBI as his personal investigative service. "The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things ..."

Trump is supported by his base -- the Christian right, the NRA, Fox News and Infowars, and white nationalists. White evangelicals defend Trump. Franklin Graham declared Trump stopped sinning when he became president, while Jerry Falwell, Jr. claimed Jesus "never told Caesar how to run Rome."
Comey blasts Trump as unethical and "untethered to truth"
Comey describes Trump repeatedly asking him to investigate an allegation involving Trump and Russian prostitutes urinating on a bed in a Moscow hotel, in order to prove it was a lie. Comey calls Trump's leadership "ego driven and about personal loyalty"
