Former FBI Director James Comey continues his smear campaign against President Trump.

Comey joined the “resistance” in expressing hatred and disgust with President Trump’s comments during his press conference with Vladimir Putin.

But it all backfired when Comey was shut down by the one person he never expected.

Liberals and Never-Trumpers tripped over one another racing to blast Trump’s performance in his press conference with Putin in the strongest terms possible.

So-called “news anchors” like CNN’s Anderson Cooper ripped Trump’s performance as “disgraceful.”

Chuck Schumer claimed Russia possessed compromising information on President Trump.

John McCain slimed the President by alleging Trump “debased” himself before Putin.

And former FBI Director James Comey got into the act by implying President Trump was a traitor.

The former FBI Director tweeted:

This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country.  Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president.

Having sold out our nation on an international stage, Mr. Trump will now explain it all to Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson? I’m guessing RT and Sputnick were unavailable. He owes it to our nation to sit down with a serious journalist.

Schumer and Cooper are obvious liberals, whereas Comey and McCain allege they are Republicans – although many conservatives would be hard pressed to find evidence to back up those claims.

But the media played up the condemnation from members of both parties in the Washington swamp like it represented some sort of grand national consensus.

Former Congressman Ron Paul had other ideas, however.

The conservative stalwart praised Trump’s summit and declared the President the winner, while blasting the bipartisan establishment – which is represented by the likes of James Comey – as the obvious losers.

Paul stated in his Ron Paul report video:

“I would say that this was significant diplomacy. It has to be that the neocons aren’t very happy because Trump sounded pretty reasonable. And I think Trump won on this. And I don’t think Putin was seen in a bad light.

 Just talking to people face to face I think is so significant and I thought it was very worthwhile. The problems are still out there.

 That’s the whole thing about the effort put in this country for the anti-Russian mood, you know, is so strong. That’s a mixed deal because like I say, so many things are bipartisan. Hatred towards Russia is bipartisan and that to me is sad because you hear it constantly….

 I was delighted to see them go through, have the press conference … I think the world didn’t suffer from the summit and hopefully it can be a beginning rather than an end.”

 Donald Trump was elected in part because he campaigned against the establishment consensus on foreign policy.

Whereas Hillary Clinton sought conflict and interventions abroad, Trump campaigned on engagement with Russia and an end to nation-building wars.

Trump’s summit with Putin was merely following up on his campaign trail promises.

 Do you agree with Ron Paul that Donald Trump was the winner and the Washington swamp lost the summit?
