Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page was slammed online Sunday night after an interview that portrayed her as a victim of President Donald Trump.
Page, who was engaged in an extramarital affair with disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok, said that she decided to speak out now not because of the soon-to-be-released report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz into possible FBI misconduct but because she claims Trump mocked her with a “fake orgasm” at a campaign rally 8 weeks ago.
“Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Page said.
Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway called out Page’s claim, writing on Twitter: “So I decide to try to read Lisa Page’s ‘woe is me’ take about how she’s the real victim in the Russia hoax she participated in. Page is quoted saying something about how she decided to speak out (not because the IG report is about to make her and her cohorts look bad) but because Trump faked an orgasm to mock her for her infidelities, but the link substantiating this claim goes to a screed (and I do mean screed) that doesn’t explain the reference at all.”
“It goes to some sub-literate rant penned by a NeverTrumper. I THINK the claim of a faked orgasm is a reference to Trump just making fun of the married Peter Strzok and Page carrying on an affair while planning their various anti-Trump efforts,” Hemingway continued. “I don’t see how anyone remotely knowledgeable [If You Know What I Mean, And I Think You Do] could describe this as a faked orgasm.”
Here’s video of the moment from the Trump rally that Page appears to be referencing:

“I had stayed quiet for years hoping it would fade away, but instead it got worse,” Page continued. “It had been so hard not to defend myself, to let people who hate me control the narrative. I decided to take my power back.”
Fox News’ Gregg Re noted that Page, who gave the interview to The Daily Beast, received a “highly sympathetic profile authored by Molly Jong-Fast, who called Strzok ‘hawt’ in a tweet last year.”
Strzok was fired from the FBI, and Page quit after months of their text messages being released to the public revealing their extreme anti-Trump and pro-Hillary Clinton bias — two political figures that Page and Strzok were involved in investigating.
Online, Page was widely mocked over the interview.
Comfortably Smug, a popular right-leaning account, wrote: “You’re going to prison, homewrecker.”
Radio host Michael Berry wrote: “Don’t let them gag you any longer, Lisa!”
Senior Federalist contributor Benjamin Weingarten wrote: “Imagine thinking yourself the victim for receiving criticism in response to your engaging in conduct personal, political and professional that imperils, corrupts and undermines our system of government.”
Columnist Stephen Miller wrote: “Lisa Page saw how media lionized Katie Hill and thought yep time to get in on this racket.”
Heritage employee Lyndsey Fifield mocked the author of the interview, writing: “This is aggressively bad ‘reporting’ even for
@MollyJongFast my Lord.”
