After the Trump-Comey debacle, Bernie Goldberg said Friday he is convinced that the Trump administration could “find a way to screw up a one-car funeral procession.”
Fox News host Bill Hemmer asked Goldberg if comparisons to Watergate were appropriate for the firing of James Comey.
The political pundit said modern journalists who were too young to cover Watergate “want some of that glory too,” so they are artificially inflating the importance of the firing.
“This is a major story, this is a legitimate story, but it is not Watergate,” Goldberg explained.
Nonetheless, he said, “Nothing I just said is a defense of the Trump White House.”
“This is the gang that couldn’t shoot straight. They would find a way to screw up a one-car funeral procession,” he said. “They change the story on why Comey got fired every 10 minutes, and I put that on the president of the United States.”
