It was revealed on Sunday morning that former FBI Director James Comey is currently writing a book about his career. In addition to addressing his history of public service, the book will also, not surprisingly, include information about the brief period of time he spent working alongside President Trump.
Plenty of people have opinions about Comey’s new project, including former Alaska Governor and fervent Trump supporter, Sarah Palin.
Shortly after the news broke about Comey’s book, Palin tweeted a link to a story about it that was published on her website, Sarah Palin.com. In her tweet, Palin simply told her Twitter followers to check out the story.

All in all, the story Palin linked to is fairly innocuous. It covers the initial hesitation that Comey experienced about writing the book and mentions the fact that multiple publishers are interested in it. However, considering the fact that Palin has a history of harshly criticizing Comey, it seems safe to say that she’s not very excited about his current venture.
Palin actually called for Comey’s firing back in March. She wrote in a Facebook post that Comey was “tainted” and part of “the swamp” in Washington, D.C.
‘The swamp runs deep. Where are Congressional “investigators” on this conflict of interest issue? Why aren’t dots more clearly connected by those in authority, those privy to information that we peasants are not? Why is tainted Comey still part of Team Trump? How long does he get to ride the train?’
Plenty of Palin’s Twitter followers have made it clear with their comments on her most recent post that they feel the same way about Comey that she does. This isn’t particularly surprising, given that the majority of them probably joined her in supporting President Trump. At the same time, quite a few people have also seen the tweet as an opportunity to mock Palin. Some of those responses can be seen below.

A few others have also expressed their support for Comey, something that Palin surely does not appreciate.
He leaked the potus committing a crime. Potus was trying to obstruct justice. Trump should be imprisoned.

Whether Palin and her fans like it or not, Comey’s book is coming, and it will likely be a lot more profitable than any of hers have been.
