(Newser) – President Trump spent Sunday morning writing something of a book of his own via Twitter, reports the AP, largely in response to former FBI Director James Comey's tome. In a rapid series of tweets, an irate-sounding president again slammed the "Slimeball!" for "making decisions based on the fact that he thought (Hillary Clinton) was going to win, and he wanted a job." He then said the "badly reviewed book" fails to address issues like how come Comey "gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail)," goes on to hit him for throwing "AG Lynch 'under the bus!,' and denying that he ever "asked Comey for Personal Loyalty. I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies. His 'memos' are self serving and FAKE!."

Trump has apparently ended with: "Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!" It wasn't all Comey, all the time, though. The president also doubled down on his characterization of the US strike on Syria, tweeting that the "Syrian raid was so perfectly carried out, with such precision, that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term 'Mission Accomplished.' I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back. Use often!"
