And Now… Comic Folk React To Donald Trump Firing FBI Director James Comey

rooz And Now… Comic Folk React To Donald Trump Firing FBI Director James Comey image

Whenever an event of global significance happens, the first thing we think about is always: what do notable comic book folk think about this? And we know you think about too, because Bleeding Cool’s long-running series of articles, Comic Folk React To… , has been wildly successful and continues to bring in unique clicks from everybody wondering what ____ has to say about Brexit or Trump’s immigration policy or The Super Bowl or a British general election or a French election or Donald Trump’s inauguration . So it’s only common sense that we all want to know how Comic Folk React To Donald Trump Firing James Comey (TM). Don’t even try to be indignant about it. You clicked on this.
Well, you know why we’re here, and we know why you’re here. Let’s just get to it then, shall we?
Starting appropriately enough with comics journalist and creator of Fanboy Rampage , Graeme McMillan :
What the fuck?
— Graeme (@graemem) May 9, 2017
Indeed. We’ll see if we can get to the bottom of that, but we doubt it.
This is like when the villain kills the scientist who built the death ray satellite for him
— Christos Gage (@Christosgage) May 9, 2017
Who had “Comey sings like a canary” in the Twitter pool? You’re about to be rich! Lol
— Tess Fowler (@TessFowler) May 9, 2017
“Thanks for tossing me the election, but you know too much, so buh-bye.”
— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) May 9, 2017
Offered without comment
— David Gallaher (@DavidGallaher) May 9, 2017
That’s not what Twitter is here for, Gallaher .
Hey, no big deal. @POTUS just fired the FBI Director investigating the Russian hack of the 2016 election & @realDonaldTrump ‘s collaboration.
— Joe Harris (@joeharris) May 9, 2017
Bet Sean Spicer can’t wait for tomorrow’s press briefing.
— Kevin Maguire (@maguirekevin) May 9, 2017
Man, @bradmeltzer , if you wrote this as a book, your editor would say it’s unbelievable and ask for rewrites.
— chris eliopoulos (@ChrisEliopoulos) May 9, 2017
Breaking: James Comey upgrades feelings on deciding 2016 election from “mildly nauseous” to “positively perturbed.”
— Graeme (@graemem) May 9, 2017
Am I wrong to be legit frightened by the Comey news?
— Ande Parks (@andeparks) May 9, 2017
that’s certainly some interesting news happening
— Ryan Penagos (@AgentM) May 9, 2017
— Abraham Riesman (@abrahamjoseph) May 9, 2017
@joeharris So now we’re going to get FBI Director Ted Nugent.
— Darick Robertson (@DarickR) May 9, 2017
You think Comey will do a revenge porn site about 45 now?
— Erica Schultz (@EricaSchultz42) May 9, 2017
We already needed a special prosecutor. Now that Comey’s been fired it’s hard to imagine a scenario avoiding a constitutional crisis.
— Gerry Duggan (@GerryDuggan) May 9, 2017
You remember when that drug dealer fired that prosecutor that was handling his case?
— B. Clay Moore (@bclaymoore) May 9, 2017
— Shannon Watters (@shanito) May 9, 2017
That old rapscallion, Donald J. Trump.
— Marc-Oliver Frisch (@knallkultur) May 9, 2017
Did he write that second paragraph specifically in expectation that the letter would be leaked?
— Jennifer de Guzman (@Jennifer_deG) May 9, 2017
(The second paragraph of Trump’s termination letter to Comey says “While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation…”)
There is no reason for a single American to have faith in this government. We are off the fucking rails right now.
— Joe Harris (@joeharris) May 9, 2017
So, wait. Jeff Sessions’ argument is, Comey is unfit to head the FBI because of Hillary’s emails? This is some deep trolling, you guys.
— Graeme (@graemem) May 9, 2017
There was a time when The President firing the guy who’s leading the investigation into his own wrongdoing led to prosecution/resignation. 1
— Ande Parks (@andeparks) May 9, 2017
I’ll just sit here and wait for GOP leadership to show that they’re still capable of putting country over party. 2
— Ande Parks (@andeparks) May 9, 2017
Now Trump gets to appoint the guy who’s going to investigate his own corruption.
— Andy Khouri (@andykhouri) May 9, 2017
I thank people for informing me I’m not under investigation all the time. Doesn’t everyone? A totally normal thing. Nothing to see here…
— Chris Roberson (@chris_roberson) May 9, 2017
A shoutout to Marvel’s latest super-mega-crossover event:
Hail Hydra?
— Gabriel Rodríguez (@GR_comics) May 9, 2017
And some more serious allegations:
The @POTUS is a traitor, and his supporters are accessories to the fact.
— Joe Harris (@joeharris) May 9, 2017
And even more serious ones:
Trump don’t read this
Comey, DM me the pee tape we will publish
— Matt Bors (@MattBors) May 9, 2017
I was just re reading this bit of history
— Oeming (@Oeming) May 9, 2017
Trump is a virus that Putin help to install into the US political system and he is destroying it from within.
— Kevin Maguire (@maguirekevin) May 9, 2017
— Cully Hamner (@CullyHamner) May 9, 2017
This is serious. Our democracy is in actual danger. It’s time for Congressional @GOP to step up.
— David Liss (@David_Liss) May 9, 2017
The next FBI director will immediately launch an investigation into whether President Trump is just TOO handsome for such a smart man.
— Andrew Wheeler (@Wheeler) May 9, 2017
Catching up on comic book news…& holy crap…numerous titles selling in the very low teens and even below 10k at Marvel? Damn.
— Nicky Poo (@NickPitarra) May 9, 2017
Wrong article , pal!
Our long national nightmare continues.
— Tom Brennan (@Brennanator) May 9, 2017
If this doesn’t lead to massive crowds in front of the White House, I won’t be disappointed. I’d be stunned (because that’s what’s coming).
— Joe Harris (@joeharris) May 9, 2017
we are neck-deep in nixon waters right now. slight wind and we’re short on air.
— Ivan Brandon 🇨🇺 (@IvanBrandon) May 9, 2017
Trump using the HRC email/election/press briefing mess-up as the excuse to fire Comey is some A+ trolling.
— Sean Kelley McKeever (@seankmckeever) May 9, 2017
Remember: AG Session lied to the Senate re: Russia and had to recuse himself from this. Your gov’t isn’t broken. It’s wholly illegitimate.
— Joe Harris (@joeharris) May 9, 2017
I couldn’t write this stuff if I tried. #SPOILERS I tried. #Renato Renato Jones in stores tomorrow!
— kaare andrews (@kaareandrews) May 9, 2017
Remember when Trump was blowing kisses to Comey? Guess that’s not happening again.
— chris eliopoulos (@ChrisEliopoulos) May 9, 2017
Wonder if Trump will nominate me to serve as FBI director. Don’t laugh. Being a white man, I’m totally in the running.
— Marc Guggenheim (@mguggenheim) May 9, 2017
@maguirekevin So, there’s no hope is what you’re saying?
— Marc Guggenheim (@mguggenheim) May 9, 2017
Hey, twitter.
What’s going on?
I’ll just sit here and watch. #Trump #FBI
— Brad Meltzer (@bradmeltzer) May 9, 2017
Imagine a world where the GOP cared enough to actually try to stop what is going on. Nice, isn’t it?
— Graeme (@graemem) May 9, 2017
History repeats.
— B. Clay Moore (@bclaymoore) May 9, 2017
I don’t believe for a second Comey was fired for the reasons in the memo. It’s a cover.
— Jennifer de Guzman (@Jennifer_deG) May 9, 2017
FBI Director Kid Rock
— Gerry Duggan (@GerryDuggan) May 9, 2017
If the GOP, at any point, had the courage or even basic decency to put country over party, we wouldn’t even be dealing with Trump.
— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) May 9, 2017
ahhh time to catch up with the showbiz news
— Albert Ching (@albertxii) May 9, 2017
That sound you hear is every news broadcaster tearing up tonight’s script and starting over.
— chris eliopoulos (@ChrisEliopoulos) May 9, 2017
Count on Greta Van Susteren to rationalize Trump’s decision. That Fox blood never leaves the system.
— Kevin Maguire (@maguirekevin) May 9, 2017
This feels like a coup.
— Greg Rucka (@ruckawriter) May 9, 2017
after today’s FBI news, can someone please check in on Rudy Giuliani, and then throw him down a deep hole? that’d be great. thanks.
— death row d a v i d (@hermanos) May 9, 2017
legit had to do “adjusting glasses to make sure I’m reading this right” thing & double check url that Trump firing Comey wasn’t fake news
— Charlie Chu (@CharlieChu) May 9, 2017
Speaking of hollandaise, is it possible to put hollandaise on quiche? Or would that be too much delicious for one tongue to handle?
— Chris Burnham (@TheBurnham) May 9, 2017
Even the toddler upstairs is stomping around, upset at Comey’s firing.
— Erica Schultz (@EricaSchultz42) May 9, 2017
This really is Nixon level Bat-Shit
— john siuntres (@johnwordballoon) May 9, 2017
James Comey, I might have a job for you. Just one question:
Are you passionate about storytelling?
— Sean Howe (@louchelarue) May 9, 2017
we are through the fucking looking glass people
— 🖖Jackson Lanzing🖖 (@JacksonLanzing) May 9, 2017
Some days I feel like this country is inching its way towards civil war, and some days I feel like it’s marching there at a brisk pace.
— Paul Tobin (@PaulTobin) May 9, 2017
Returned from an Internet hiatus during which I wrote 582 words on the new story to find Trump has gone full Nixon. Absolutely terrifying.
— Scott Edelman (@scottedelman) May 9, 2017
Russia could not have dreamed how well this would go for them.
— Joe Quinones (@Joe_Quinones) May 9, 2017
James Comey fired. Sally Yates fired. Nothing to see here. #TrumpRussia
— Andy Diggle (@andydiggle) May 9, 2017
This sh!t gotta stop…
— FrancescoFrancavilla (@f_francavilla) May 9, 2017
James Comey has to throw his hands up and say, “Eff it! I’m telling ALL!” C’mon, Mr. Comey. We’ll give you cookies.
— Erica Schultz (@EricaSchultz42) May 9, 2017
But her emails?
— Lilah K. Sturges (@lilah_sturges) May 9, 2017
Wow, Comey’s been fired. That’s what you get for botching an investigation to appease the ruling party, then trying to do your job later.
— Matt Miner 🌹 (@MattMinerXVX) May 9, 2017
But let’s really look at what just happened: Comey was fired for investigating the President. That is some fascist dictatorship shit.
— Matt Miner 🌹 (@MattMinerXVX) May 9, 2017
I don’t understand how conservatives don’t find this fishy. It’s almost like they blindly choose Party over country.
— Chris Sotomayor (@SotoColor) May 9, 2017
I wonder if this is the worst thing Jeff Sessions did today.
— Tom Peyer (@tompeyer) May 9, 2017
And now Jonathan Hickman makes a wrestling reference?
Remember, this is only a half-Comey. A full-comey completes the heel-face-heel circle.
Beware Jim Cornette and the loaded tennis racket.
— Jonathan Hickman (@JHickman) May 9, 2017
Hey Don, this was only a couple of months ago, what happened?! You can’t grab Comey by the pu$sy so you fired him?
— FrancescoFrancavilla (@f_francavilla) May 9, 2017
If you’ve never written to your senator or representative, this is a good time to start.
— Erica Schultz (@EricaSchultz42) May 9, 2017
Time to flood our representatives with calls demanding a special prosecutor pick up the Russia investigation.
— Joe Quinones (@Joe_Quinones) May 9, 2017
@ronmarz You are really overestimating Giuliani’s privates, brother…
— FrancescoFrancavilla (@f_francavilla) May 9, 2017
@JHickman That’s pretty good, Hickman. Pretty, damn good.
— BryanEdwardHill (@bryanedwardhill) May 9, 2017
BREAKING: New FBI director found in sentient puppet that can only speak when 45 is in the room. Is also racist.
— Frank J. Barbiere (@atlasincognita) May 9, 2017
Quit Russian to judgement – and stop Putin this whole Comey thing on I’m out of puns, this is madness.
— Tom Brennan (@Brennanator) May 9, 2017
Fair enough. But isn’t there anybody out there who will take Donald Trump’s side in all of this? Anyone?!
Comey is a very, very strange man.In a country in which political agendas are usually obvious, Comey made gigantic blunders favoring no one.
— Ethan Van Sciver (@EthanVanSciver) May 9, 2017
Everyone thinks Comey was working against their political interests. Dems think he scuttled Hillary AND is trying to get Trump impeached.
— Ethan Van Sciver (@EthanVanSciver) May 9, 2017
I love @realDonaldTrump letter to Comey, meant for Maddow fans to read.Comey ISNT investigating POTUS.He never was.
— Ethan Van Sciver (@EthanVanSciver) May 9, 2017
And Mitch Breitweiser :
@EthanVanSciver Why does the left suddenly trust Coney? It’s almost like they oppose anything Trump says or does without reason.
— Great Again! (@mbreitweiser) May 9, 2017
When you have faith in conspiracy theories, everything you see is part of the conspiracy.
— Ethan Van Sciver (@EthanVanSciver) May 9, 2017
To the far Left, this must mean Comey was SO CLOSE to nailing Trump for “Russian Collusion.” He had to go.
— Ethan Van Sciver (@EthanVanSciver) May 9, 2017
@EthanVanSciver They’ve all become Glenn Beck.
— Great Again! (@mbreitweiser) May 9, 2017
— Ethan Van Sciver (@EthanVanSciver) May 9, 2017
Don’t give in to Genn Beck style conspiracies. That road leads to pain and losing. Submit yourself to reason and productivity and be happy.
— Great Again! (@mbreitweiser) May 9, 2017
And Rob Liefeld :
Comey was inept, as put forth by last week’s blunder.
— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) May 9, 2017
The entire world was calling for his resignation/firing due to ineptitude. That is irrefutable. I’m amused at the outrage.
— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) May 9, 2017
This could obviously have tremendous fallout for the Pres. I wished I owned a 24 hour cable news network!
— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) May 9, 2017
We wish you did too, Rob. That would be the most EXTREME 24 hour cable news network of all time!
I’m not as caught up in this as others. He goes down or he doesn’t… time will tell.
— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) May 9, 2017
Comey was the Chevy Chase of FBI Directors.
— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) May 9, 2017
Anything else?
Did someone say …. SHATTERSTAR???
— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) May 9, 2017
And that seems as good a place to end it as any.
