Trump Calls Comey a ‘Nut Job’ to the Russians: Best Memes & Tweets

A report by the New York Times on May 19 says that President Donald Trump referred to former FBI Director James Comey as a “nut job” to diplomats from Russia.

The article claims that Trump told the Russian officials in the Oval Office that firing Comey “relieved great pressure” that was placed on him, a document about the meeting said.

“I just fired the head of the FBI. He was a crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to the document that summarized the meeting. “I’m not under investigation.”

The document was created based off of notes that were taken inside of the Oval Office and it’s been circulating as the “official account” of the meeting.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer didn’t deny the allegations.

“By grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia’s actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia,” Spicer said in a statement. “The investigation would have always continued, and obviously, the termination of Comey would not have ended it. Once again, the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations.”

The conversation took place in the White House on May 10, just one day after firing Comey. Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.

The Washington Post had reported that Trump told the two officials classified information disclosed by Israel on the Islamic State.

Trump fired Comey on May 9 for “not being able to effectively lead the bureau,” he said in a hand-delivered termination letter.

The Times alleged that Trump calling Comey a nut job “reinforces the notion” that Trump fired Comey because of the agency’s investigation into collusion between his campaign and the Russians.

Trump using the phrase “nut job” to describe Comey led to much reaction on social media and the phrase being a top trend on Twitter on Friday. Many users tried their hand at creating memes and making light of the situation.

Merriam-Webster tweeted that the phrase was the website’s No. 2 search query.

Here are some of the best tweets and memes after the news report surfaced:


One User Felt It’s Appropriate to Make a New Movie for the Summer


Comparisons to All The President’s Men Were Made


Another User Questioned Trump’s Decision


A Twitter User Suggested Comey React With a ‘Nut Job’ of His Own

If Comey would have filed charges against Hillary Clinton like he should have, there would be no imaginary, Russian Witch Hunt !
but the Mormons they believe strangely , but Charles Keating and his junk bonds that built the new Las Vegas, is also a Mormon and he stole from thousands and thousands from Americans then when he got out of jail, he was a hero, with the Mormon community.
So it would make sense for the Mormons to back the Clinton crime family, to allow a felony to flee prosecution .
but that’s nothing new, they’ve been doing this for years. Allowing true criminals .

That injure thousands of Americans to get away with their crimes.

So up yours ( James Comey ! ).

As a Mormon myself, I can remember exactly zero occasions during which one of my fellow faith buddies demonstrated any kind of support whatsoever for Keating. I lived in Phoenix at the time, and did not know of any religious affiliation the guy had. In do recall being nauseated by Keating’s comments during a television interview.

So please, badmouth Keating all you like, but demonstrate some judicious thinking when you label an entire group based upon the behavior of a single knucklehead.

I suppose you never heard of the great Mormon Massacre ?
The great Mormon Massacre happened in the Grand Canyon !
Posing as a wagon master ,a Mormon preacher and 8 of his wives !
Massacred hundreds of settlers moving to the West !
They would kill everyone above the age of remembrance !
Then taking the children as their own. The Cavalry tried several times to capture the Rogue preacher,
but could not catch the culprit !
Once they caught the Mormon posing as wagonmaster!
They hug him !
The rest of the Mormons family move to Salt Lake City Utah.
The Mormons now run Las Vegas !
The Mormons stole Howard Hughes his money !
Yhe Mormons run the trucking industry in the United States !
so next time please know your history of the Mormon religion !!
It’s not just a single knucklehead the Mormon religion is filled with killers, Bandits and thieves …..

Komrade up yours, are you quoting your Russian propaganda again? Tsk, tsk!

Well… that presupposes that Hillary Clinton was, indeed, guilty of a crime!… and, if Hillary was guilty of a crime, then where is Trump’s “Executive Pressure” in expediting JUSTICE on America’s behalf? And if MR. POTUS won’t act to “save America” from Clinton, then why should we believe that your claims have any VALIDITY? And unless going after Clinton would indirectly expose himself (on some unknown ground!), then there should be no reason why Trump should be hindered in his legal challenge, to hold Hillary Clinton accountable! And so… and again!… where’s the BEEF?

up yours . . . your intepretation of the the so-calledfacts remain bizarre, but could you please at least get the facts right? Charles Keating was born into and raised in a very strong Roman Catholic home . . . he was never a Mormon . . . of course, in your paranoia and devotion to ignorance this won’t change your viewpoint at all. But since in the U.S. were supposedly free to worship as we see fit, why do you feel the need to drag someone’s religion into the issue and then use it against them? How unAmerican!!!

If I may ask you, Trump!… What kind of work does a “nut” perform?… and, are there benefits?
