Twitter Ridicules Donald Trump Over James Comey Memo Claims
By Lee Moran
Twitter users had a field day with the latest potentially damaging claims about President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, The New York Times published details of a memo purportedly written by fired FBI director James Comey. In it, Comey said Trump asked him to stop the FBI investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s alleged links to Russia.
After news of the memo broke, tweeters began mocking the president’s predicament via the #ComeyMemo hashtag, including imagining what Trump’s own notes of the meeting may have looked like.
Here’s a sampling of the best reactions so far:
