Mark Levin Rips ‘Bozo The Clown’ Comey For Doing ‘Enormous Damage’ to FBI by Being ‘Petty, Superficial’

Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin trashed James Comey on Friday for his media tour promoting his new book — criticizing the former FBI director as “petty” and claiming he was doing damage to his reputation and the FBI’s.

Levin, who now hosts a Sunday show on Fox News, was asked by Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends what the book tour is doing to Comey’s reputation.

“Comey is like a bad rash,” Levin replied. “You know, he just won’t go away.”

Levin continued to take Comey to task — presumably for portions of his book that describe President Donald Trump’s physical appearance, including his hair, tan and very long ties.

“I think he has done enormous damage to himself,” Levin continued. “He is exposing himself to the American people as a very petty, superficial man.”

“This is a former head of the FBI. He is the former deputy attorney general of the United States. He is a former United States attorney. He is conducting himself like a complete Bozo the Clown. And he does enormous damage to the Federal Bureau of Investigation by conducting himself this way.”

The former FBI director, whose memoir A Higher Loyalty goes into great detail about his interactions with Trump, has come under criticism for his personal descriptions of the president. He defended the portions of the book by stating that he included them to provide a visual, and that he would remove them if he could write the book again.
