Much of the Internet is buzzing after former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony in front of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
Comey testified under oath that Russia did interfere with the 2016 Presidential election and that President Donald Trump did not try to obstruct the investigation, for starters.
It could also be deduced from testimony that one-on-one dinners with the President should be avoided, and to never skip dates with one’s wife.
Twitter was lighting up with comments about Comey and his testimony. But two figures in particular rose to the top: the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., and reality TV star Spencer Pratt, who was on MTV’s “The Hills.”
“Kind of a big deal… No?” Trump Jr. tweeted when it was learned the President did not ask Comey to stop the Russia investigation, and that while it likely meddled with the 2016 Presidential election, Russia did not alter the votes, as Comey testified.
“Weird that so few are running with this,” Trump Jr. added of the revelation that the President never asked Comey to end the Russia investigation.
When it came down to any ambiguity Comey felt regarding whether or not the President was ordering him to do something or suggesting it, Trump Jr. stepped in to clarify.
“Knowing my father for 39 years when he ‘orders or tells’ you to do something there is no ambiguity, you will know exactly what he means,” Trump Jr. tweeted.
When Comey revealed that he leaked a memo to a “close friend” who was a Columbia University professor, hoping it would spur a special counsel after his firing, Trump Jr. tweeted that his father had been correct.
“Once again he’s right way before anyone else sees it… and they found another leaker today,” he tweeted.
“SO TRUE,” Trump Jr. tweeted, of all the leaks surround the Russia investigation – except that the President, his father, was not actually under FBI investigation. “He was more than willing to leak something against [Donald Trump] but not something that exonerates him? Classy guy.”
And Comey’s character was certainly up for grabs on Trump Jr.’s feed.
“If you told [Attorney General Jeff] Sessions you didn’t want to be alone with Trump again, why did you continue to take his calls,” Trump Jr. asked.
The sometimes-CrossFitting son of the President had something to say about Comey’s strength, too.
“So if he was a ‘Stronger guy’ he might have actually followed procedure & the law,” Trump Jr. asked. “You were the director of the FBI, who are you kidding.”
Pratt also lit up Twitter with an enticing live stream of the hearing, more in pithy one-liners than political explanations.
“Comey would be good at feeding hummingbirds,” Pratt wrote.
“[Yah] I’m always careful in open setting also,” Pratt tweeted, referring to those moments when Comey said he did not want to answer certain questions in the open setting, likely because they pertained to classified information.
And a few minutes later, “Everyone fired deserves a committee.”
“The producers gotta give this cast more some drinks,” Pratt then tweeted.
Adding, “President Comey,” with three smiley emojis.
He later tweeted “Fame goals af,” likely referring to the amount of media and photographers in the room during the Senate hearing.
