Maxine Waters says neither James Comey nor women want to be left alone with Donald Trump

Just hours after the Senate Intelligence Committee published former FBI director James Comey’s seven-page testimony regarding his interaction with President Donald Trump, Congresswoman Maxine Waters took to Twitter to share an observation: Neither Comey, nor women, want to be left alone in a room with Trump.

According to Comey’s testimony, on February 14, he told Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the president had taken the unusual and “inappropriate” step of engaging him in a one-on-one conversation.

“I took the opportunity to implore the Attorney General to prevent any future direct communication between the President and me,” Comey’s testimony read. “I told the AG (attorney general) that what had just happened — him being asked to leave while the FBI Director, who reports to the AG, remained behind — was inappropriate and should never happen. He did not reply.”

On Wednesday afternoon, Waters took the opportunity to point out that Trump had a history of behaving inappropriately during one-on-one interactions — to the tune of 16 different women who had publicly accused him of sexual assault.

“So Comey told Jeff Sessions he didn’t want to be alone with Trump. Women across the country can relate,” Waters tweeted.

Clearly her zinger struck a chord with people as it’s hauled in upwards of 50,00 retweets as of this writing.
