The war between President Donald Trump and deposed FBI director James Comey reached a fever pitch on Sunday night. One of President Trump's favorite targets jumped on ABC to give an exclusive interview. It immediately went viral, with Comey divulging everything he could muster up. In return, the White House began a war of words that has seemingly persisted since the day he was removed from office.

So why was the interview so infuriating to the administration? Here are the three major takeaways from the Comey interview everyone is talking about.

1) Comey regrets nothing

The former FBI director has always been asked if he made the right decisions while in office, especially in regards to the handling of Hillary Clinton's email controversy.

The answer to that question, apparently, is an affirmative "yes." In fact, he stands by everything he did. He admitted that not everything he did was perfect, but he did it to protect the institutions he pledged to defend. That sometimes meant butting heads with President Trump. But Comey is a firm believer in the fact that no man is above the institutions that uphold the United States government, regardless of what their status is in the grand scheme.

2) Trump is 'morally unfit'

That is the most striking phase used in the entire interview, by a long shot. There's no moral clause the president swears to when they take office. Still, they are expected to be the face and voice of the country, which generally means being representative of the nation's best instincts, not worst. Many seem to believe President Trump doesn't have the moral high ground to wall up the border with Mexico, or restrict the rights of transgender citizens to serve in the armed forces.

Comey vehemently backs up that assertion.

3) This isn't over yet

In fact, this could be just the start of another headache for the administration [VIDEO]. That's why they battled back so fiercely on Monday morning. Comey came off looking like a credible figure, much more so than President Trump. Additionally, this is only the start of the former FBI's book tour. If he knew what was good for him financially, he would sit on some stories until later on to sell more books.

It's not every day that an interview with a former political figure becomes international news. But that's where we're at in this situation. Every word Comey utters from this point forward will become fodder for the media - and for the administration [VIDEO].
