SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Not surprisingly — President Donald Trump isn't too happy about former FBI Director James Comey's new memoir.

The president slammed Comey in two lengthy tweets Friday morning, calling him "a proven LEAKER & LIAR" and "a weak and untruthful slime ball."

And he added it was his "great honor" to fire Comey in May 2017.

Comey's memoir, titled "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership," doesn't paint Trump in a good light. Comey likens the president to a mob boss and calls him "untethered" and "unethical."

Members of the Trump administration are also firing back against Comey's book.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Twitter, "One of the few areas of true bipartisan consensus in Washington is Comey has no credibility."

And White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that Comey "sounds like a disgruntled ex-employee."
