Trump Fires Comey: All the Memes You Need to See

President Donald Trump has fired FBI director James B. Comey. According to White House spokesman Sean Spicer, it was over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails during the presidential campaign. However, the New York Times writes, "Separately, the F.B.I. also is investigating whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the election." The abrupt dismissal of Comey has raised the question as to who will take the leadership of an ongoing counterintelligence investigation about Trump's controversial election. The investigation is determining whether associates of Trump may have been aided by Russia to sway the outcome of the presidential election against the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. The dismissal was effective immediately. According to the Washington Post, "Comey was fired because senior Justice Department officials concluded he had violated Justice Department principles and procedures by publicly discussing the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of private email." There has been a mixed reaction on social media, with Trump critics claiming Trump is trying to cover the tracks of his alleged Russian ties, while his supporters state it needed to be done.
